I was travelling with my two adult sons and wanted them to have the best experience possible. I booked the day trip to Petra and we had a wonderful day. Our driver was Khader Dawood and he was amazing. He confirmed the trip the day before, collected us on time and made our day very special. Khader speaks very good English and is very knowledgeable of Jordan being a local. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and made a 3 hour journey each way pass very quickly. He took an interest in us and talked about his family too. We could have taken the JETT BUS option but we all agreed it was worth the extra cost to get the VIP treatment.

Very impressive, Petra is worth it but it takes at least 4 hours to see the usual below and also walk up to the royal tombs. If you still want to climb to one of the higher vantage points, for example the place of sacrifice, 6 hours are necessary. Please note this when arranging the time with the driver

This was a wonderful experience. The driver was very knowledgeable about the routes and showed me some views of difference destinations which was extra. Zach, was punctual and was very eager in making sure you were safe and satisfied. I enjoyed spending time with him. He also gave pointers on things to look out for while touring Petra. There are people that will try to swindle and take advantage but you’ll just have to say no and keep moving. I did not do any donkey or camel rides for to me it wasn’t worth it. It will take the same time walking. I was able to do the tour myself without guide. I simply did a lot of research and reading prior to trip.
