My driver Ammar was great, he took me to all the sites. Petra is such a great place to see and my wadi rum tour was fantastic. I highly recommend these guys!!
My guide picked me up promptly and we drove to the Wadi Rum. I recommend doing this first if you are doing the Wadi Rum and Petra in 1 day. I had a great trip out into the Wadi Rum by 4x4 with a very nice guide. Then we headed to Petra where I spent 4 hours walking down to the city center and back. I recommend the walk and also the Petra Museum, which is adjacent to the entrance. My guide let me pick the way back to my hotel at the Dead Sea, so we went across to the Dead Sea and drove up the coast to the resort. It was absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend it. Al in all it was a very memorable day and i high recommend it and my guide.
The tour was better than expected and well organised. The driver was kind and fun. The bedouin experience was incredible and the bedouin driver offered us an experience that we will never forget. The ride in the dessert was well organised stopping at a lot of locations worthing taking pictures. Worth staying until sunset in wadi rum (we had to pay a small fee for the sunset experience 10don each). The bedouin also offered us some tea which he made during the sunset time! Unforgettable experience!!
This is a busy but wonderful trip but be prepared for walking at Petra. We walked 11kms. We had a guide - 50jd- but with hindsight we didn’t really need one. You can look up about Petra before and after and just enjoy being there during your visit. We arrived at about 9.30am and saw the sun shining on the Treasury. Magical. It only shines directly on it for about 2 hrs a day. Wadi Rum is the place we’d return to and sleep in a Bedouin tent. The peace is incredible.
Our driver (Kamil?) was excellent. It’s good to have a local driver to negotiate the police check points for you. Viator once again lived up to expectations.
My driver Kemel picked me up from my hotel promptly at 6:30 AM. He was courteous and professional throughout the day. we went to Petra first, and then to Wadi Rum. At Wadi rum, he called one of his local contact Bedouin guides, Abdullah, who was amazing. (FYI - this charge is extra) He showed me the highlights of the desert and even made me tea during the sunset. This tour is convenient and efficient way to see two amazing sites in one day.
