The 21 hour trip is hard because of the driving (appx. six+ hours each way ),and a slow, very disorganized border crossing, but the Petra experience is worth it. We loved that we were able to go and next time, will plan a two-day trip with one night at a hotel. There is so much to see and nowhere near enough time to enjoy it all. Petra is absolutely astounding! Also, the "lunch" bag had terrible food - a plain, dry bagel with nothing inside, a very brown banana, one apple and one orange, a juice drink box (not real juice, but sugar and water), and an expired-date wafer bar. Our bar said it was good until December 2019 and clearly we are way past that . Considering we paid $300 pp, plus the extra fees of $125pp, a better lunch would have been reasonable to expect. Perhaps a quick lunch at a plaza cafe?
The travel is early, no problem is not near from Tel Aviv, as expected that time. But the visitors are usually in hotels and they don’t serve the breakfast so early. I pass until 2 o’clock without eating nothing, because in te moment that we stoped to take a coffee, and the place that the guide stoped didn’t have anything to eat, of course we didn’t know the places there ro take things to eat. So I just have something to eat at lunch that was so late.
Great and safe driver who told us a lot about the places we passed. He stopped several times to let us make pictures. He made the trip very comfortabel and interesting for us. We had a great local guide in Bethlehem who told us a lot about the history and the local situation and showed us around to the interesting places. The Dead Sea was a special experience and so was Jericho. We had a long and exciting day. Thank you all for making this happen.
Our Driver and guide was Enrique. He was very friendly and informative. He was able to communicate to all parties in the group and he was able to answer all our questions Having booked other GetYourGuide tours previously, we were not disappointed with the tour provided
Great trip and very well organised, guides and coach driver excellent. Not the most religious of individuals but found the trip amazing interesting and educational, definitely one to tick off live's bucket list of things to see!!!
