Petra in a day
, Nov 2019
Our driver picked us up by the ship as arranged. Lovely comfortable, air conditioned car and an excellent driver. Very friendly and got us to Wadi Rum and Petra in good time The driver got our tickets for us and then handed us over to the private guide in Petra The guide was again excellent and we had a wonderful and informative tour of Petra Our driver was waiting for us when we returned and quickly got us to the airport as arranged. The driver was courteous and very professional and we would give the whole experience 5* Would definitely recommend this tour especially if you are short of time as we did it all and didn’t feel rushed or missed out. This was the VIP experience we hoped for and got. Excellent all round highly recommended

Private day tour to Petra on Sunday 03 November
, Nov 2019
The driver was good, the guide mediocre and the travel agency was lousy. They issued conflicting messages and lied about why the driver was late. The price charged was double what it would have cost if I had done it on site. This reflects badly on Viator and Trip Advisor.

A nice day in Wadi Musa Petra...

A nice day in Wadi Musa Petra. Note that when you prebook the arrangement, you only pay for a regular guide up to a certain point witin the area. Then the guide will offer you extended tours for a extra charge. The guide will explain different routes within Petra. Unfortunately I didnt ask how much it would be in advance. That came as a chock afterwards, another 50 JOD! On top of that you should be aware of that the guide will present you to different salesmen witin the area for buying souvenirs often handmade of poor women that can cost you even more. Its almost that they expect you to take the horse carriage through the Sic on your way back, which leaves you with another 20 JOD to pay and another 10 JOD to tip the guide. Still it was the most awesome place to be at and you could feel the history wings over the place. Dont forget to drink plenty of water. It is really hot was there in the beginning of aug.
Excellent tour, tour guide...
