I am SOOOO happy I booked this tour. It was the jewel of my entire trip to the middle east. We met our driver and our group of 14 at Abraham Hostels in Jerusalem. Then we were driven to the border in a mini bus that has wifi!. The driver helped us cross the border into Jordan and gave us all the info we needed to cross. At the Israeli border you will need to pay 105 shekels in order to cross. Once over the border, the Israeli driver handed us over to our Jordanian guide, Emad. He helped us purchase our Jordanian visa which was 50 dinar. There's a currency exchange next to the office in case you need to exchange money. The border crossing took us all of about 25 minutes- although this was January and in low season. Once we were all finished we met our driver Zach and loaded into the bus. The bus is pretty tight so prepare yourself for cramped legs and LONG drives. Before we left the border we were also assigned a police officer that stayed with us the entire time. I wasn't expecting that- but it gave us some added protection which was nice. We then drove to Jerash and walked around the ruins for about 2 hours, then had a nice buffet lunch and a touristy hotel/restaurant. Then we drove to Amman to see the citadel and look around. Before leaving Amman, we made a quick stop and Emad came back with Jordanian desserts to try while we continued the drive. We selected the bedioun camp instead of the hotel-- although 4 out of the 14 in our group opted to go with the hotel instead. The bedioun camp is a MUCH better experience than the hotels- I think the 4 at the hotel felt very left out actually. At the camp we were greeted and sent right into the dinner room where a hot dinner was waiting for us. After that they gave us towels for the showers and showed us to our rooms. There is power and wifi until midnight. After getting situated we went into a large tent where they had hookah, a nice warm fire and served us sweet tea while we lounged around and chatted. Soon they started singing and playing music for us. The men that run this camp are great, very friendly and welcoming. It was nice just to sit aorund and chat with them. Our tents were very nice- actual twin beds with sheets and 6 blankets-it was freezing in the winter! You have a little candle in your room as well after the power goes out. I also brought a small flashlight with me that was helpful when getting ready in the morning. The showers have hot water and they have regular toilets and sinks as well. I would hardly call it camping! haha. In the morning there was a hot breakfast waiting for us before we left for the grand finale- Petra! Walking into Petra is breathtaking. It's a lot of walking, maybe 5-10 miles but its so worth it. After 4-5 hours there, we had another nice buffet lunch and then made the drive back to border which was a breeze and the Israeli driver picked us up on the other side and drove us back to Jerusalem. We got back around 8:30PM. I am so so happy I did this tour. It was worth every penny. Everyone that took care of us, especially Emad was amazing. You will not regret booking this tour!!

Petra is a must-see when in the Middle East. Tour Guide Abu Hadj ?, ham radio handle DE was excellent - knowledgeable and entertaining. A long bus ride but well worth it. Jerash was nice even though cold and rainy our day, Amman drive-through was educational, Petra the crown jewel. Over night stay at the P4 Quattro Hotel which was outstanding - very helpful staff.

We had a wonderful trip to Petra. Our guide was Ranya and she was knowledgeable and friendly. The border crossing both ways was well explained, we knew what to expect and appreciated that. The stop in Jerash was great and lunch was very good. Ranya recommended the mint lemonade and it was very tasty. Another fun experience was watching our table bread being made in a brick oven outdoors. In Amman the stop was also very interesting and we had a surprise stop at a pastry shop where Ranya shared a Jordanian version of cheesecake with us. The Bedouin camp was wonderful, both food and atmosphere and the beds were comfortable and the tents private. Petra was terrific. Ranya mentioned taking mules up to the monastery after her guided tour and walking down. We were glad we did that, as it gave us more time to see the sights. Petra is very large and you do not have enough time to see it all in the allotted time, so this suggestion allowed us to experience more of the ruins. The lunch spot after Petra was also wonderful. We would highly recommend this trip.
