Private Full-Day Trip to Petra from Amman

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup at your Amman hotel or Queen Alia International Airport, then travel to Petra in a private, air-conditioned vehicle stocked with bottled water. Enjoy views of the rocky Jordanian landscape as you drive the modern Desert Highway.
    Upon arrival at Petra, continue on foot to the most important landmarks in the archeological site: enter ancient temples carved from solid rock, and see tombs that date back to 300 BC. Visit the treasury, the theater, and the monastery, whose inscriptions dedicate it to Obodas I, a king of the Nabateans. Learn about Petra’s fascinating history and rediscovery as you walk, and examine the best of the city’s carvings and architecture.
    In ancient times, Petra was an important link on desert caravan routes, and traders passed through carrying incense, silks, and spices between Asia and Europe. In addition to the religious and public sites, you’ll find fascinating infrastructure from those Nabatean times, such as channels, dams, cisterns, and mines.
    Continue to the Wadi al-Mahfur, climbing 1,050 stairs to the High Place of Sacrifice for spectacular views of the desert. After completing your tour of Petra Archeological Site, make the return trip to Amman, where this tour concludes with drop-off at the location of your choice.

    Loved my trip with Ihab. Very professional and fun to talk with the whole time. He was really considerate too and gave me extra time to see the museum and had cold water waiting for me. Couldn't have asked for a better guide.

    Our guide, Mustafa, was exactly on time for our hotel pick up. His car was clean and he was a safe driver. He was very knowledgeable of the Petra history & site. It was a real pleasure having him as a tour guide!
