I would advise other travelers to bring a bottle of water and healthy snacks (if they want healthy snacks). The bus does make stops at places where there are toilets and food but nothing very healthy. The tour company should give people a timetable so they know what to expect: i.e. stop 1 time, stop 2 time, arrive at Petra approximately noon, return to bus at 4:30, etc. It clearly was carefully planned, but it was poorly communicated. The site itself is amazing but it is a 1 1/2 walk at minimum down a dusty road with horse drawn carriages passing by. Thus a scarf or mask to cover your face is also a good idea. The walk back is all uphill. The tour company needs to call some taxis to meet the bus in Tel Aviv because it arrives after midnight. These are suggestions, but the sites themselves were just amazing. I'm glad I went but the tour company could improve the visitor experience with suggestions and improved logistics on the return.
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!
This tour is a all day tour, is very nice if you short of time but it will be a long day. The tour is good the guide at Petra did a great job, there is not lunch or anything so bring some snacks. At Petra you can eat before you go back, it will be a long drive back plus have to cross the border again.
Highly recommend this trip to anyone! Very nice guide and actually the time in desert is exactly right - not too much and more than enough. Thank you very much!!!!! We enjoyed
Well organised but stopped a lot of time on the traditional stores, even if we didn’t choose... but actually Petra it’s amazing so it was perfect and great experience
