Our tour driver Muneer was great. He was very informative, punctual and always asked us what we wish to do and was flexible to accommodate our requests. Thanks Muneer for making our tour interesting, pleasant and safe. Shoukran my friend.

Absolutely amazing! Couldn't recommend this trip enough. If you are planning to visit Petra from Amman in one day, then this is the most convenient way. Our driver (who was amazing) picked us up and headed for Petra. We stopped for breakfast/coffee on the way, then got to Petra where he helped us get tickets and a tour guide (included in the price). He then left us to our own devices for a few hours before we headed back. You'll be exhausted by the end!
Note: Bring money for tipping the tour guide and for drinks (water...etc. is readily available at the entrance). Wear comfortable shoes and bring a hat because it gets VERY sunny. On the way in, you are descending therefore walking is easier - the further you go, the harder your ascent back to the entrance will be!

Highly recommend! This is a long trip to do in a day but is definitely possible. Our driver arrived promptly at the hotel and stopped to get us coffee at our request on the way. He introduced us to our guide upon arrival. Note, the guide is included in the trip as is the horse ride to the entrance but the tip for the horse guide is not (he told us our tip was insufficient and that most people give something like 10JD for the 5 minute ride, although this person is not affiliated with Viator, just letting you know). The tour guide was very knowledgable and nice and provied great detail. We had 5 hours at Petra before meeting our driver in the afternoon. There is a lot to see and we didn't get to see everything but if this is all the time you have it is certainly sufficient. Great experience, definitely a must see in Jordan and recommend the tour company.

Our driver was a very competent individual. He arrived at the hotel on time, the car was a clean recent model Nissan 4 door. The driver was fluent in English and also had vast knowledge of history and current events. The driver battled both rain and snow to get us to Petra safely. The driver was very helpful in advising do's and don'ts while in Petra and introducing us to our guide. A job well done!
