      How much for a guide for petra

      Petra Jun 27, 2014 at 6:10 PM

      Thank you everyone for your helpful answers so far on my possible trip to petra (my husband and I just decided today to investigate it as a possible New Years week trip, as it ends up being overall cheaper to go to petra than much closer punta Cana, dr! Plus we aren't resort people.....)--anyway, we would have two full days there and was trying to figure out the cost of a guide for the day-- I see it's recommended to get one at the visitor center, I cannot seem to find a price-- I thought I saw it was roughly $70 usd for about 3 hours? Does anyone know how much the visitor center guides charge?

      Transport from petra back to Amman on New Year's Day?

      Petra Jun 27, 2014 at 11:08 AM

      Just wondering. Thoughts on whether it's advisable to leave petra early morning, to drive back to Amman for an 11:05 am flight, on New Year's Day?? I have read if it's snowing, roads could be blocked.

      Petra at night?

      Petra Jun 27, 2014 at 10:41 AM

      Is petra at night also done during winter? I am guessing so, I looked at the official website and it didn't specifically say, besides the time the entrance closes in the winter.

      Driving in Jordan

      Petra Mar 31, 2014 at 3:23 AM


      I was travelling to Jordan next week and wanted to check - how will the route of Amman Airport to Petra to Dana/Kerak to Deadsea resorts will look like. Please let me know on whether Gas/Petrol stations quite common, will route boards be in english, usage of GPS worth and advisable, rest areas on the route etc? If there is a problem with the car, do help available quickly from rental car companies. I prefer taxi, but considering that I will be travelling with little kids, rental car will give me flexibility on when I start, when I stop etc. Any other DOs and DONTs?

      What is the best and cheapest way to get to Petra from the airport? I would need to get to the Petra visitors’ center in Wadi Musa.
      Also, on Saturday, I need to cross the border into Israel so I can take a bus to Jerusalem. The bus leaves from Eilat at 4:30pm. Is there an inexpensive way to get to Eilat from Wadi Musa on a Saturday?

    • Lost Nikon DSLR camera in Petra

      Petra Nov 4, 2013 at 4:46 AM

      Lost Nikon DSLR camera in Petra


      Yesterday (3 November, 2013), while walking around Petra, I lost my Nikon D5200. I had gone into the restroom near the Theatre (next to Marguerite van Geldermalsen's stall) and hung the camera from the hook behind the toilet door. I forgot to take it on my way out and when I came back 10 minutes later, it was gone. The lady who minds the toilet looked around and said no one had turned in anything. No luck with the tourist police either. Even the shopkeepers and donkey / horsemen pleaded ignorance. If anyone happens to come across the camera - please do get in touch via Virtual Tourist. I will be eternally grateful. If you can't reach me, please leave word with Jane at Rocky Mountain Hotel, Wadi Musa. Thanks

    • Will my plan of 1 day in petra & 1 day at the Dead Sea work?

      Petra Aug 23, 2013 at 8:10 AM

      We are visiting Jordan in 2 weeks. We arrive into Amman at 9.30am, plan to drive to the Dead Sea, spend the day there, staying the night at Holiday inn in sowayma. Early next morning drive to Petra, spend the day exploring, including a night tour, then the next morning drive back to Amman airport and fly out.
      I know this is a rushed tour but do you think it is possible? We are both quite fit so hiking for a full day will not be a problem for us.
      Thanks for any tips or advice.

      Have I left it a bit late?

      Petra May 21, 2012 at 8:19 AM

      I'm a lone female of 73 and have wanted to visit Petra all my life. Now I have the wherewithall to arrange my 'dream' tour I look at all these postings and fret that I may not be up to the long walk in the sun to see the sights, I am not disabled but just a bit lacking in stamina these days.
      I really do not like the donkey and camel rides offered in the Middle East, the animals look emaciated and flea-ridden and seem to be very badly treated.
      At first I had intended to spend a whole week in Petra but it would seem a couple of days would be enough - is it possible to add a Petra visit onto another tour of (say) Israel or Jordan? I know we don't have advertising on here but can anyone recommend a good tour compant I could contack from UK?
