Beautiful Petra, very unprofessional guide
Anton_J
, Feb 2020
Definitely recommend to visit the Petra site. It is really a fabulous experience. The only problem was very unprofessional guide. When the group criticised him (some time delays of individuals), he almost physically attacked one of the guests. It was terrible experience to go through this.

Once in a life time experience

We were prepared that it would be a long day but at the end we have seen everything what was needed during the Petra stay. Transportation and border control took same time but was not so worse than described in other comments. At the end a wonderful day.

Everything went smoothly. We were picked up at our hotel by our Israelidriver ehoescorted us to passport control.We were met on the Jordanian side by our guide who helped us through passport and security. Petra itself was absolutely amazing and beautiful. The meal that was provided was excellent. Go if you have the chance. Not to be missed. This was our second time there.

The trip was fantastic and Petra is definitely worth the effort. It does get expensive when you look at the total costs. You pay the 200 american dollars on the onset and then have to pay another 160 american dollars at the border cash. I really loved the trip, only complaint was that the guide cut us off early, we all had to leave at 3 pm when we only got there at 1pm. There was no reason to take off early. I really highly recommend taking the trip, but would want to have at least 4 hours to tour rather than the two we were given.

Very nice trip and great guide...
Joao P

Very nice trip and great guide. Petra is amazing. The only thing is that the boarder crossing is kind of fishy since the first guide goes with you to the crossing and before crossing the boarder to the Jordan side he gives you an envelope with money and then you give it to the Jordan guides. Also it does not help that then they take out all the money and are showing it to you and playing with it

Michele J

The vendor for this tour was absolutely awful. The only thing that went well was the pickup and drive from Eliat to the border. The border procedure took a lot of time and I suspect some suspicious activity as the guide held onto our passports after crossing and I noticed that we never received any form of entrance visa or acknowledgement from Jordanian immigration that we entered their country. Stay away from this operation.

Fantastic trip! Our guide, Ali, was extremely knowledgeable providing incredible details about the history of Petra and local culture. Add in he's highly entertaining. The scheduled pick up occurred as scheduled, process through the border without issue and lunch very, very good great view from the restaurant.

Worth seeing. I enjoyed the trip...
Vija P

Worth seeing. I enjoyed the trip from Eilat to Petra very much and mostly because of our guide Ali. He is the best tour guide I have ever had. Perfect sense of humour, caring for every individual in the group. He swiftly switched from one language to a another so that everybody in the group could follow. The place itself is fantastic and I am happy I went there. Our guides from both sides Eilat and Jordan helped with all the border procedures.

Staff were professional at all times...
Harriet T
, Nov 2017
Staff were professional at all times that I saw, but the bus we were on needed new shock absorbers and seat belts. They did not have any water on the bus, would have appreciated a notice to bring our own. Petra was fascinating, the guide was knowledgeable and explained things well. If you have mobility issues, you should advise the guide early, as they seem to have a minimum speed in order to complete the tour within a set time limit. The border crossing seemed routine, but was slow.
