Before you do the big Petra this is an interesting foretaste of better things to come. It's a scenic rocky location with some facades and is generally interesting, esp because of the absence of hordes of tourists. But after Petra itself it my seem less...More

If you have a couple of days in Petra, Al-Beidha (Little Petra) is a great little side trip. It's only 15 minutes by car from Wadi Musa, and takes about half an hour to walk around. There are signs for most of the tombs, so...More

hello, We are a group of four visiting Petra in October and would like to hire a guide to walk from Little Petra to Petra and hire a guide for Petra as well. Can you/anybody provide recommendations for a suitable guide or how to engage a guide?
