one of the places I wanted to visit so so much, but at the end it was a bit disappointing. maybe cause I've seen to many images and tv shows, it was as if I was already there ... it did not have that "wow - I am amazed effect for me :( it is nice to see it, but... More

I knew Petra was going to be good but it was beyond good. We had a perfect day, beautiful blue sky and crisp temperatures made for a perfect day. We bussed from Amman and spent 6 hours strolling along the main route. We rode horses, climbed hills, chatted with Bedouins and drank coffee. My photographs will be great memories.

An amazing place. It's really worthwhile taking extra time to visit the Monastery at Petra aswell as the Treasury. Please don't use the donkeys.

It was not an easy task, left hotel and kept walking for 7 hours for over 17K, but it was totally worth it. The scenery was just amazing and a series of wonders. Strongly recommend for those who plan visiting Petra or think about visiting. With right weather condition, you will be amazed.

It's really wonderful nice and safe place, but the entrance fee is to much to pay 50 Jordanian dinar is like 70 US dollars for the day visit. Everything else is good.

To fellow travelers I wish to pass on to you in my own words my recent experience with having contacted Sami at Windows Of Jordan to assist me in a less than 24 hours notice of a 6 day/night window to visit Jordan (via entrance and exit from Israel). Sami replied to my email inquiry about assistance in setting up... More

I got goosebumps both times i saw the treasury start to appear through the siq (amazing in itself). The rest of the sight is stunning, the colours in the rocks and the engineering feats are beyond description. I absolutely loved it

Don't judge by my title. but here it is. I've seen so many photos, heard so much of it, we'll seen the movies and documentaries that I expected way more than this site offers. But, it was still a great day. We had Jordan pass with 2 day Petra visit, just in case. We started early, so we were able... More

Just amazing carved rock homes, whole town where the Nabotians lived. Gotta see this UNESCO site, most beautiful. YOU NEED GREAT WALKING SHOES or BOOTS. Its gravel gives way easily, and the nearest medical care is 4+ hours in Amman Jordan. Its red rocks and carve outs just cant be corralled in words. The Sik, treasury, tombs, all need some... More
