Trip to Petra

Looking to book a trip to Petra in July 2011, cannot decide who to book with and cannot decide Plane or Boat? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We used Luna Rossa last year for a trip to Cairo and really enjoyed it, I have emailed them for details/prices.

Thomsons are charging £300 which I think is too expensive!

For some reason the last one isn't taking you to the site. What I did was do a search on this forum by typing in sharm day trip to petra and then read the posts/info that came up.

Hi,

Thanks to everyone for the replies, I think I will go by Boat, don't think I could put up with the airport again for a day trip - too much waiting about and far too busy!

I will email the companies suggested tonight and get some prices and dates.

Unfortunately we never got to do the trip as the boat according to thomsons was not up to Health + Safety standards! (we went to Luxor instead), which was amazing and I would do this trip again, but would like to spend longer there.

We are going back in June and I have emailed a few agents in Sharm for prices and availbility, so hopefully we will be able to go this year to Petra and we have now decided to fly if we can (depends on the situation and advise from agents when we get there).

Email a few of the companies mentioned on the forum, but don't book until you get there, this will give you the chance to meet the agents and ask any questions face to face.

Hope you enjoy the trip! :)

I was under the impression that you couldnt do the trip by plane - has that changed and now you can? Was thinking about doing the thomson boat trip but looks like thats out of the question now too.

thanks

My preference would be by plane but goodness knows what mode of transport will be available in June, I am going to wait until I get there and see what's what! :)
