Amman to Petra to Cairo in 3 nights?

We will arrive in Petra late, around 1:30 am. Not sure why all the flights I found arrive so late. We will stay that night and the next in Amman to rest and do a little sight seeing. We will leave early the next day to go to Petra and stay the night there, going directly to the airport to catch a flight to cairo. Besides being very busy, is this do able? Would people suggest renting a private car/taxi? I have read about the buses and they seem reliable, but we can't miss our flight to Cairo. Thank you for any help.

Petra is about 2.5 hours away from the Airport... i would suggest a taxi or a private tour services of a tour company if you have a flight to catch, buses are reliable but remember that you have to add the stops along the way to your travel time....

check this out, they might be able to help you out in figuring the cost

I do know of another private car and driver service that will assist who are professional and reliable with a program like yours. If you need the information, feel free to contact me.

I would imagine with a hectic time in Jordan you would want a service/or reliable taxi to be with you with your tight time.

" We will arrive in Petra late, around 1:30 am - We will stay that night and the next in Amman to rest "

Are you arriving flying into Amman ??

We have visited Jordan numerous times - our last visit we flew from Cairo to Amman - picked up a hire car from the Airport & drove down to the Dead Sea ( Ishtar) stayed 2 days - then drove to Petra - stayed 2 days - drove back to Amman Airport. - This short itinerary really worked well & was not rushed at all.

If are a confident driver - its very easy driving in Jordan. Amman is the only problem regarding traffic.

Your itinerary is do-able. however more time is needed for Petra.

Our plans changed a little, we will arrive in Amman around 12 noon. Do you suggest we spend a night in the Dead Sea and a night at Petra, or both nights at Petra? We have an 8:20am flight out of Amman after the 3rd night, where is close to the airport but nice. Thank you for the help.

Hi,

You could drive straight to the Dead Sea. Stay overnight. - day 1. 1hr drive.

Next morning drive to Petra / see Petra - stay overnight. - day 2.

Drive Petra to Madaba or Amman - day 3. - 3 hrs drive. - day 3.

Approx 35mins drive from Madaba to Amman Airport.

Amman has some lovely 5* hotels or you do have the Golden Tulip Airport hotel which is very close to the airport.
