Designed to enhance the experience of solo travellers, this 10-hour excursion to Petra allows you to explore the New7Wonder of the World in a social environment. Departing Amman, you’ll travel by air-conditioned coach alongside like-minded solo travellers. With a professional guide, discover the archeological wonders of Petra, an ancient site that dates back to 300BC and opt to enjoy relaxed free time. Entrance fees and round-trip transport from your Amman hotel are included on this tour.
At around 8am, board an air-conditioned coach at your Amman hotel. Greet your fellow travellers and delve straight into the ancient history of Petra, one of the New7Wonders of the World, while listening to commentary from your host.
Throughout the 2.5-hour journey, you’ll have the opportunity to stop to use the restroom and purchase refreshments. On arrival at the Petra Visitor Center, you’ll greet your professional tour guide and embark on an unforgettable journey into Middle Eastern culture.
Wander through Siq, a dramatic narrow gorge that marks the entrance of Petra, and gaze upon temples and tombs carved from vivid pink sandstone. Pose for photographs in front of the Treasury, undoubtedly Petra’s most iconic structure, and make logistical arrangements with your guide before enjoying free time.
Then, after your 3-hour tour, reconvene with your original guide and relax during the 2.5-hour journey back to your Amman hotel, having hopefully made new holiday acquaintances.
Petra itself is amazing. Well worth the visit. This tour was just transportation there, entry, and the briefest of explanations from the guide en route. There was no local guide included, even though it was advertised. Guide hustled for a tip at end of tour and was very rude when he didn't get one!
Pick-up on this tour was on time, and while we made the long 3.5 hour journey to Petra, our guide Omar kept us informed not only about Petra but also about the present day Jordan, its history and geography. Once we arrived there, he took us all the way to the end of the main trail, explaining the significance of the various landmarks that we passed by such as the Treasury, the Siq, the Theater and the Church. After that we were given a couple of hours to go off the main trail and explore on our own, while the guide waited for us at the entrance. This tour is recommended for those who do not wish to overnight in Petra and return to Amman the same day.
