Petra, an ancient city located in the Jordan desert, once dominated the trade routes of ancient Arabia. On this full-day excursion from Amman you’ll see the main attractions of this UNESCO World Heritage Site with a private English-speaking guide.
What to Expect
On this 10-hour excursion you’ll travel from Amman to Petra by air-conditioned sedan, stopping for a break during the 2.5-hour drive.
When you arrive at the Petra Visitor Center, a private guide will be arranged for you (and your group of up to 3 persons) after tickets have been purchased. From this point you’ll begin a guided tour of this fascinating site.
An English-speaking guide will lead you on a tour inside Petra and ensure that you visit the major attractions and learn about the city’s founding. At the end of the narrow canyon known as Al Siq, you’ll marvel at the Grecian-style façade of Al Khazneh.
It is recommended that you stay close to your guide so you don’t miss out on any of the commentary. You’ll hear details of the fascinating history of the Nabateans who built the city out of rocks.
You’ll have a chance to rest, eat, drink, and use the facilities while in Petra. At the end of the tour, your guide will escort you to the meeting point for the 3-hour trip back to Amman.
