All the arrangements were expertly done. The driver showed up on time and the guide in Petra was top notch. I would have like a few more details on the logistics such as you will have one person drive you to Petra who will stop along the way for pictures but is not the tour guide and the tour guide in Petra has certain time limit assumptions. It would have been good to be able to coordinate those items ahead of time. BUT, those are minor points as the trip was fantastic and the guide was very well informed, helpful and friendly. Oh, and make sure you take some cash with you for tips and souvenirs.
