  • I have never believed that such a beauty, need 1-2 days to visit all museum. enormous, all carved in the red rock 
  • We toured this museum/centre after a full day around the ruins. It is free, well laid out, out of the sun and plots the History in a good educational manner. For me I was happy to read the English nar...  read more »
  • The photographs are breathtaking and posters very informative. Enjoyed looking around and unusual for Jordan it was free! 
  • Wow, what can I say. Amazing history and experience. Took a 3 day trip to Petra and Wadi Rum. You need to do a lot of walking, but what an experience. Did Wadi Rum by jeep not camel (much better). Remember to bring a lot of water with you. It gets hot and very few places to buy. The only negative is the locals trying to get you to ride the camels, mules, and horse carriages. I understand some people may need it to get around if they can't walk those distances, but they just keep annoying you and haggling you on prices.
  • Absolutely amazing place to see. This is one of those places that you're so happy you decided to see. You must visit if you go to Jordan. :-)
  • Incredible! Beautiful ancient buildings and wonderful examples of human ingenuity. I would advise setting the alarm clock early and getting there before the hoards of tourists. We were there at 6am and had the main event all to ourselves. 5 hours later, you could barely move!
  • Petra in general amazing. The people are very nice and the historical relics are breathtaking view. Nevertheless, the entery price is extremily high. They ask for 50 Dinars or 90 Dinar if you stay only 1 day in Jordan. It is 70USD to 127USD for only entrace without guide, or any thing more. That's the main reason why I gave 3 stars instead 5 stars.
  • Alright so I am the 777th reviewer for Petra. What can I add that hasn't been stated? Well I will say how I did it and why I think it's the best way to go. First off I saw this advertised in israel as a day trip. Don't do that. That's crazy busy schedule and far too rushed imo. I did Petra over 2 days. Day 1 I arrived about 2:30pm. I could have arrived earlier so why this time? For a start I saw Petra in June and it's boiling, 40+ so I wanted to avoid that as much as possible while allowing me to see Treasury, main stuff on the route and go up to the monastery. So I got up to the monastery at 5:30pm and I am the only person there advantage number 1. I went to a nearby viewpoint and again nobody there not even the hawkers who were done for the day. Finally when I got back to treasury to leave the complex around 6:45pm very few people about. Day 2 - I arrive at 6:05am. The complex opens at 6am. I was told by the ticket attended that I was the first person to arrive so naturally when I got to the treasury I was the only person there. I decided to do do the side track up to the place of high sacrifice which I would highly recommend. In total in the 3 hours I walked around I saw 1 other tourist and 2 or 3 hawkers. Most of them hadn't arrived yet. I had the place to myself. I was out by 11:30am before it got super hot. I could have done this all in 1 full day and if you truly only have 1 day than better than nothing but if you have a bit more time I would highly doing everything either very late or early.
