    Located 140 miles (225 kilometers) from Amman, Petra once dominated the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Your visit to this hauntingly beautiful place begins with a walk through the Siq, a narrow path that was once the main entrance to the city. An impressively long, deep and narrow gorge of stunning natural beauty, the Siq is hemmed in by cliffs soaring up to 263 feet (80 meters), and measures three-quarters of a mile (1.2 kilometers). You will depart from your Hotel to Petra via an air-conditioned vehicle and will have the opportunity to stop and take a break as the journey is close to 2.5 hours south. Once you are in Petra, at the Petra Visitor Center, a guide can be arranged ( Optional ) after your ticket purchase and your meeting point to start your tour into Petra. Your dedicated English speaking tour guide will lead the tour inside of Petra and arrange entrance and logistics. It is advised to stay close to your guide to capture the details of the fascinating history of the Nabateans who built the city out of rocks. You will have the opportunity to rest, eat, drink, and use the facilities while in Petra, just inform your guide. At the end of the tour, your guide  ( If Hired ) will escort you to the meeting point for your journey back to Amman. Expect about a 3-hour journey back to Amman.

The Amman-Petra tour is excellent; however Mohamed,the driver is not very honest.The second day our tour supposed go to Jerash .He succeeded convincing us go to Dead sea instead.The tour is shorter time and boring,so the driver can drop us at gift-shopping stops .

To start from the positive side - car was comfortable and had a wifi. Now to sum up the rest... Our driver seemed friendly at first, but he tried to get the money out of us at every possible occasion. This tour almost completely ruined our vacation mood and a great first

We had an excellent day. Our driver, Mohammed, was helpful, knowledgeable and a very good driver. We would definitely recommend him. Petra is amazing and it is possible to get away from the crowds.

Akram was an amazing driver. Told us a lot about Jordan on our drive from Amman to Petra. Took us off the main road when we were near Petra to show us some extra stuff. Definitely would book again if I came back to Jordan.

Petra wow was great for us but a group of girls travelling alone is ok but not the best as many Arab guys trying to hit on us and get our numbers but Petra itself is perfect I don’t recommend you get a donkey or camel and if they beg you just a walk away but 1 day is enough and

False advertising, overpriced, inhospitable
I would never recommend this company. They advertised lunch at the Sohum Dead Sea spa and resort at Crowne plaza.

You can do this trip on your own.
I did this trip last October and even though it says half day, I only spent probably about 3 hours with my driver.
