Calm place, good atmosphere, no stress. Everybody enjoyed it, including the children as they could explore the caves and climb around. For the kids, Little Petra was more fun than Petra itself. Also they loved the tea they got at “The Best View”-place at the...More

I enjoyed this smaller site. However, after 2 days in Petra, this couldn't compare. We were looking for something to do that avoided the crowds and long walk from the main entrance. This had both of those. So, you decide! Of course, this is a...More

.... if for no othe rreason than that it is, in it's own way, just as spectaclur as Petra 'proper' but it doesn't have the hordes of people swarming all around.

Al-Beidha - Little Petra is smaller but much easier to reach especially for senior citizen and kids. While it is much smaller in size and less in details, it is much much less crowded even on a holiday of peak tourist season. Besides, you can...More

Little Petra was an unexpected highlight of our visit to Petra. We had wanted to see Petra at Night, but they only offer it three nights a week. Instead our driver brought us here. I'm so glad. First, it's free. Second, its lovely and authentic....More

At first, we thought we could probably just skip "Little Petra" -- after all, we had seen the "real thing" (Petra) the day before. Luckily we didn't though! This is definitely a site worth visiting in its own right. First of all, entry is free....More

Little Petra was pleasant short visit. Though similar to Petra, it's a short walk from the entrance. You can walk into everything. One of the bigger "caves" was a temple and had plastered and painted walls. The "best view in the world" at the back...More

Great excursion for a family. A guide is not necessary. Follow everyone else, all signs and descriptions are in English and Arabic. I recommend to get a donkey to take you up to the monastery (too many steps to walk up), then walk down afterwards....More

Free entry to little Petra is unexpected. A guide is a must. A smaller site that takes about an hour to visit. Evidence of Roman invasion as well as ingenious water harvesting by Nabuteans. A few Beduoin stalls - and a lot of hospitality. A...More

A real surprise go find this spot. It is a virtual replica of the Big Petra. Only 500 meters deep... with everything being a scale model of the Big Petra. You can see it all in one hour. No entry fee. Very nice.

4pm would be too late as it gets darker early in January. You may not be able to explore the area fully.

You don't need a guide for Little Petra it is only a couple of hundred metre long. There are locl guides just after the car park if you really want one. It is far to far to walk to Petra itself, took us 15 mins on the coach.
