What people are saying about Aqaba Governorate
The 21 hour trip is hard because of the driving (appx. six+ hours each way ),and a slow, very disorganized border crossing, but the Petra experience is worth it. We loved that we were able to go and next time, will plan a two-day trip with one night at a hotel. There is so much to see and nowhere near enough time to enjoy it all. Petra is absolutely astounding! Also, the "lunch" bag had terrible food - a plain, dry bagel with nothing inside, a very brown banana, one apple and one orange, a juice drink box (not real juice, but sugar and water), and an expired-date wafer bar. Our bar said it was good until December 2019 and clearly we are way past that . Considering we paid $300 pp, plus the extra fees of $125pp, a better lunch would have been reasonable to expect. Perhaps a quick lunch at a plaza cafe?
It was a fantastic trip and our guide and driver Ibrahim was exceptional! Friendly, professional, polite and really informative about the area and the places we were visiting. Ibrahim added lots of little touches ,like taking us for a delicious kunafa:) Spending the night in the Wadi Rum Desert was one of my favorite memories from the trip. Don't be affraid of cold, just take warm clothes with you. We can't thank you enough for the excellent service you provided while we were in Jordan. We are hoping to return for another trip!
Very good organization and assistance at the border crossing in Israel and Jordan. Everything went very fast. And the trip to Petra ... waw! Nizar is the best...made all the money. An educated man, with a broad general culture, who presented us all the history of Petra, but also of the Middle East! Everiting is ok!
Great Tour. Would recommend the Jeep tour in the desert and the great camp experience, with friendly and easy going staff. Food in the camp was also included (not mentioned in the description)
Mahdi was such a great guide. We had a great experience— it was a little colder than we expected but well worth the trip!
