What to expect

On this one day tour of Petra you will discover the intricately carved sandstone city in the mountains of Jordan. With your experienced guide you will see how the stone transforms between pink, dark red, purple or orange throughout the day. You will learn about the legacy of the Nabateans who settled in the city more than 2000 years ago and left their mark upon the city's stones. From the main entrance you will pass between the precipitous cliffs through the awesome Siq, a huge crack in the sandstone 1,2 km. long. You'll head to the most famous of Petra's monuments, the Treasury, with its amazing carved facade in the sandstone. You will see the hundreds of building, facades, crypts, baths, mourning halls, temples, and the Roman amphitheater. After visiting Petra you will have lunch at a local restaurant with an extensive selection of oriental dishes. You will return back to Amman in the early evening and dropped off at your hotel.
