In the morning pick up from your hotel lobby in Amman, and transfer via the Desert Highway for 2.5 -03.00 approx. hours to the astonishing rock city Petra. This fascinating ancient Nabatean capital dominated long time the Arabian trade routes, and is a must see in the Middle East. Meet your guide at the Visitor's Centre and start to explore the mystic site. You pass the Siq, a narrow gorge where you get the first close views of the colorful sandstone, ending at the beautiful Treasury. Walk along the Street of Facades to the Royal Tombs, the Theatre and Qasr Al Bint. Free time on your own, then walk the same way back to the entrance gate. In the afternoon return to your Amman hotel.
Once you have arrived in Petra you will be taken to the Visitor Center where a guide can be arranged (if fully guided tour option not selected). After your ticket purchase, the tour of Petra begins. You will enter through the Siq where your tour guide (if purchased) will explain about the history of Petra. It is advised to stay close to your guide to capture the details of the fascinating history of the Nabateans who built the city out of rocks. You will then continue walking a further kilometer down into the Siq where you will come across the Treasury. You will have the opportunity to rest, eat, drink, and use the facilities whilst in Petra, just inform your guide, or converse with the friendly locals. You will then return through the Siq back to the Visitor Center where you will meet your driver for your 3.5 hour journey back to Amman.
