This private tour gives you the opportunity to see the landmarks of the lower parts of Petra like the Treasury and the Royal Tombs. What makes this tour special is the guided visit to the Monastery El Deir in Petra. You reach this impressing building of 45 meters height by climbing several hundred stairs. Lunch and a complimentary pick up and drop off at your hotel in Amman are included in this minimum 11 hours tour.
Your English speaking driver picks you from the lobby of any hotel in Amman. We recommend 07:00am as start time, because you need approximately three hours to drive to Petra. During the long transfer you can chat with the driver, or relax; we provide also free WiFi and free bottled water.
Your guide waits for you in Petra and assists you as quick as possible with the ticket procedures. From the main gate you walk through a narrow canyon to the Treasury, the most popular monument of the Nabatean architecture. Following the main trail you proceed to the Street of Facades, the Theatre, the Royal Tombs and Qasr Al Bint.
