Very glad we did a private tour and not a massive group tour. The cost of the trip went to hotel pick up and drop off, transport to Petra and entry to Petra guide included. There was no where near enough time at Petra and the trip to Petra took a very long time due to frequent stops for the driver to have a cigarette or show you a tourist shop where prices are significantly elevated. The car was small and the driver was tall so the person behind the driver had no leg room for the entire trip. On the positive side , we could stop for photos whenever we wanted and we went to a good little restaurant for schwarmas on the way home. Driver was nice enough.

The reason why I do not recommend is because of the driver. When we got to Petra, he proposed us to be back in 1.30hrs, but we pushed to 2hrs thinking we could see everything we wanted. At the end, we realized that we needed at least 3hrs. Besides the tour says 10hrs right 6hrs travel time to Petra both ways plus 4hrs of site seeing. I felt ripped off by the driver.
