We hit the jackpot with Sam as our tour guide while visiting Petra! Our amazing driver Muhammad picked us up from the airport with a name sign, and safely drove us to Petra where we began our day with Sam. Sam is filled with amazing facts, and historical references regarding Petra and Jordan as a whole. He even made recommendations for the rest of our trip. Throughout the day he pointed out so many things we would have missed along the way if we did not have a tour guide. He made the entrance easy; since the tickets were included in our tour we did not have to stand in the long line. As we walked throughout Petra, Sam helped us to find the most amazing places to take photos!!! We are forever grateful!!! Make sure you bring comfy walking shoes, water, and a hat/sunglasses. It’s quite a long walk if you make it to the end like we did! :) Our driver, Muhammad brought us safely to our hotel. He was very professional and safe.

Conversing with driver was extremely educational. Guide spoke perfect British English. He was son of former Minister of Antiquities. Explained Petra to us in terms of world history, culture and architecture. He drew parallels to current world events. Petra was so much more interesting and complex than we expected. It was an unexpected high light of our multi country vacation. S

While in Amman on business, I only had limited time to visit Petra. My personal driver arrived early, was well dressed and his car was very clean. The driver was very knowledgeable of all aspects of the drive from Amman to Petra. Once in Petra, he ensured that the handoff to the local guide in Petra went well. While at Petra I learned so much more than I would have if I had done it on my own. I would highly recommend this tour.

The driver met me in the hotel right on time (in fact he was there sooner) and drove me in a nice and very clean car to Petra in about 3.5 hours. We had plenty of time to chat and stopped on the way for a rest as well. Once arrived, the guide met me right there and we started exploring the site alongside a couple who also joined us. The guide was very good and knowledgeable with perfect English. The views at the site are magnificent. I was lucky with a nice and sunny day without much wind (and dust).

Petra is a site to behold, one of the best of the modern world wonders in my opinion. Our custom trip for the five in our family was booked through Viator. Our van driver Basam was very punctual and courteous throughout the trip. The tour guide Mamoun was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area and the Nabateans, the builders of Petra. His explanations were detailed and he pointed out some of the shortcomings in the popular archeologists' views which contradicted common practices and designs of Jordanians and Nabateans, which made the narration very interesting. Mamoun is an academic and author of several books on Petra. Recommend doing the tour early in the morning, especially in the summer months. The rocks contribute to high heat indexes.
