I am going to Petra via Eilat and need to cross the border into Jordan (Aqaba). Having the Jordan Pass exempts me from having a pre-arranged visa (according to the embassy in Berlin, though I'm traveling from Sweden). However, my question is, is it possible to cross the border as a private person, without a car, as long as I can get to the border terminal from the airport in Eilat?
i got a quote 80JD for petra to holiday inn dead sea, just wondering if this is reasonable or already good enough?
for my second route - dead sea to jerash, i can only think of these 2 ways to get in:
1) taxi all the way, how much would it be?
2) taxi from dead sea to madaba, bus from madaba to amman, bus from amman to jerash. however, i cant find wheres the madaba bus stop, can anyone pls help.
any other ways? thanks.
Hi Everyone! I am looking to visit Jordan in October. The hike between Dana reserve and Petra is something I wish to do. Is it possible to do the hike without a guide ? If a guide is recommended, which tour companies will you suggest? Thank you!
We are doing an 8 day road trip that usually all do covering the regular and popular places. I would like to know if we need to rent a GPS or will our Phone internet and Google maps be enough?
Also which mobile network has the best coverage?
Pointers would really help! :D
Thanks in advance.
Can you recommend short / half day /dayhikes in Jordan that I can do in March without a guide ? (outside Petra and Wadi Rum)
Or is there a superb hike that I should do with a guide ?
I visited Wadi Rum 20 years ago and I did short hikes by myself while camping at the Rest House. Is it still allowed ?
Are there better (private) camps where I could do the same, near the entrance/village (accessible on foot) ? I'm not insterested in 4WD or camel tours.
I'm currently in Eilat and hoping to cross the border early morning this Friday 2nd March for a trip to Visit Petra and Wadi Rum.
I was intending to get a minibus but somebody told me that they might not go on a Friday. Can anybody shed any light on this?
If it is going, what time will I need to cross the border to have enough time to make the minibus?
What other options will I have if it's not going? I don't necessarily have to visit Petra first, I could get a taxi to Wadi Rum then try to…
