Read, and read carefully....else you'll be fleeced. The nice, clean and modern Petra Visitor Center is the entrance to the "Lost City" and it's where your anticipation starts building up. The staff is friendly and very polite. There's a long hard walk in the heat ahead of you, several kilometers there and several kilometers back so do make sure you take plenty of water with you, have your sunglasses, use suntan lotion if necessary and a must is that you wear good walking shoes or sneakers. Now before you head off, I strongly recommend that you do not take a horse or carriage (even if offered to you "free" or included in your ticket). Also, avoid all dealings with any of the horse and carriage dealers and peddlers that you'll meet along the way, beginning on the left hand side as you start your journey. Just don't engage. Yes they are all lovely people and nice to start with but believe me in the end there can be serious $$$ hassles which will ruin your whole experience. Once you've got your ticket, be on guard and at all times avoid the scammers, don't ever take out and open your wallet. Also, if you're smart you'll make an early morning start when it's cooler. Your once in a lifetime and an amazing, priceless, most memorable experience is about to begin. I'll see you at the next stop ;-)

What a magical place!! The visitor center is very nice, clean and has everything you need. Once you pay and enter the Siq (canyon), the amazement begins. The whole site is mind blowing. The rocky formations are gorgeous and very impressive. Once you see the first temple, you can’t help but wonder how on earth they’ve sculpted these buildings and how long it must’ve taken. Truly a World Wonder! We went in the winter, walked 17km and shared a bottle of water. We skipped horse/donkey rides so can’t comment on that.

Before u going Jordan: Rent a car, it will be cheaper than paying excursions and guides When u arrived Petra: 1) Buy tickets only in ticket office 2) they write carriage to the treasury and back will cost 20JD, but the carriage people will ask of you 10JD tip additionally 3) dont go with bedoine-horse people. They will tell you the horse-riding to the treasury included to the ticket and "they will take you from their heart". But finally you will find them asking of you tip 40JD 4) you can go to the treasury and back by your legs. After u back home: If you used your bank card in Jordan - block your card and make new card

A very nicely built and well managed centre which is the starting point for your journey into the ancient city. It has a small museum, ticketing office and an official information centre. Plus restrooms, resting area/steps, restaurant/eateries and of course gift shops. Very nice staff and an ideal starting point for your trip. The parking for cars is around 100-200 meters away up the road that goes towards the Crowne Plaza.

Too much of walk of around 7kms. But worth a visit. Scenic place with quite a lot of history.
