Hi kasnol thank you for your nice review if you want more time in petra or a little bit more intimate guide we recommend ordering private tour as you ordered a group tour that means you will be a part of a group so might be delay in pick up anyhow, we are glad you had a wonderful time in petra. Thank you.
