Very good organization and assistance at the border crossing in Israel and Jordan. Everything went very fast. And the trip to Petra ... waw! Nizar is the best...made all the money. An educated man, with a broad general culture, who presented us all the history of Petra, but also of the Middle East! Everiting is ok!

It is not very cheap. The tour costs 183 euros plus 125 dollars visa. BUT: Alone the entry in the price of over 100 euros is included in the 183 euros. In that sense, the price is OK. The bus is modern and has Wi-Fi. At the border it took us about 2 hours to arrive.

Very well organized trip with a towering guide Nizar. He was great on the bus on the way to Petra and gave us a lot of background information about Jordan and Petra. When we were stopped on the way back by the Jordanian police, he mastered the situation so that we could continue without the police entering the bus! Petra is beautiful and exciting and with hindsight it is better to plan more time than a 1-day trip. If you have little time, this trip is ideal.
