The trip was well organized, the driver came on time for the hotel pickup and was friendly and made me comforatble (I was travelling alone) during the journey to Petra. The horse ride, entrance ticket, and the tour guide are all included in what you pay. Petra was out of this world and I enjoyed every bit of my tour. Overall, I had a problem free tour. I feel that the rate is little on the high side; when compared with similar tours organized by the agencies catering to the hotel I stayed.

Good value; all went off smoothy and plenty of time was allowed - no pressure to meet at a certain time and several good refreshment stops en-route. The guide in Petra was excellent; a great sense of humour and held our attention throughout. Excellent - well worth the (reat deal of) money the ticket cost! Could have got a similar trip cheaper from the hotel we stayed in - but the quality of this trip was well worth the extra

A local guide was chosen by the driver when we arrived in Petra.The guide wasn't very good.

7am start is too early for going to Petra from Amman, because you get there during the hottest part of the day. The guide they gave us was mediocre and the driver took us to 2 different souvenir shops, "for coffee." You are probably better off staying some place nearby and getting a really early start there, or going much later in the day to avoid the heat.
Do not get the cart ride, the drivers are not nice to their horses.
Petra is definitely worth going to, just don't do it with these guys. Figure something else out.
