  • A magical place. Camel rides are so much fun!
  • Beautiful beyond words and very rich in history. Very informative
  • Very nicely done little museum.
  • Wow! Super great. We spent all day here. The siq going to the Treasury is amazing and then it opens up and it's just unbelievably beautiful. My small group also walked to the monestary and I'd say the extra 900+ steps are totally worth it. Just watch out for runaway donkeys! Haha
  • Nice place. This is really the best way to get an overview of Petra before you go inside! It’s nice how they tell the story their own way.
