Petra was my second trip arranged in Jordan first was to Mount Nebo and the Dead Sea. Petra is a must see place in Jordan. My driver and companion for the whole day was waiting for me in the hotel. He was very professional, with a great English and knowledge about Jordan. The trip in the car passed very quickly. Unfortunately the driver is not allowed to enter with you in Petra and you are given a tourist guide who spoiled my day. The guy was rushing, and only waiting for the tip. He also promised the driver to inform him about my return but he never did so the driver was really worried. I would have done much better if I visited Petra without the tourist guide. He is included in the trip but you can always refuse to take him just like I refused taking a short trip on a horse. Fortunately, I only had to stay with the guide till we reached the Treasury which took us 40 minutes and then I discovered Petra on my own. It's a great place to visit but those who watched Indiana Jones movie might be a bit disappointed as the caves are empty inside. Nevertheless I would recommend this trip and have given the highest rate because the organization was perfect it's not agency's fault that Petra has such an awful guides. My driver was a great companion and I got to know from him lots about Jordan. I am sure I will be back there for longer and will see Petra by night.
