Overview
Experience Jordan’s greatest ancient treasure on this private day trip to Petra from Amman. After traveling from Amman to Petra with a private driver, enjoy a 2-hour guided tour of UNESCO-listed Petra: a rock city cut into a sandstone valley some 2,000 years ago. Walk or ride a horse along the “Siq” entrance canyon, and behold the rose-tinted Treasury, Royal Tombs, and more. During your explorations, learn about Petra’s history from your local guide and see lesser-known Little Petra, whose sculpted rock buildings were a suburb of the main city.
Highlights
  • Private Petra and Little Petra tour from Amman in an air-conditioned vehicle
  • Guided tour of Petra with a local Bedouin guide; entrance fees included
  • Option to ride a horse through the Siq entranceway
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Amman hotels
What to Expect
Start the day with pickup at your hotel in Amman and then begin the 140-mile (225-kilometer) trip to Petra, traveling through Jordan’s expansive desert.
Upon arrival at Petra, you’ll meet a local guide before entering the UNESCO World Heritage Site through the winding Siq, a towering slot canyon that you can traverse on foot or horseback.
Visit the gorgeous Treasury, Petra’s ancient theater, the Royal Tombs, and the Altar of Sacrifice, a place of ancient rituals and ceremonies that has sweeping views across the archaeological site. Following your time in Petra, head to Little Petra, a Nabatean settlement featuring rare, colorful frescoes. The day concludes with return transfer to Amman and drop-off at your hotel.

As a world traveler I've seen quite a few amazing places in my life but I must say Petra is definitely one of the most special ones. It compares to when I first visited Angkor Wat and what I imagine Machu Picchu will be like....More
