Such an enjoyable tour. Our driver, Osama was right on time to pick us up from our cruise ship. He was a wealth of local information as he drove us to Petra. Our private guide met us there and walked with us into Petra and he explained the different areas of the site. Petra is huge and amazing. Our driver lent us a local phone so we could contact him when we were ready to leave. He took us to a local place for lunch and he even stopped and bought me some cookies that I enjoyed at lunch. We drove back to our ship after a quick tour of Aqaba with plenty of time before sailing. I would recomend this tour.”
