About
Local Bedouin guide from the lost city of Petra in Jordan Ahlan wa sahlan! (welcome)! I'm Ahmad a Bedouin from Petra Jordan, where I have worked as a local guide for many years. I was born in one of the caves in Petra and know quite a few secret trails that not many locals know about. I am a huge fan of Bob Marley’s music, my Arabian horses, and classic cars. I offer horse riding, hiking, and sunset gazing experiences in Petra. Join me for an authentic experience and let me share my Bedouin food, culture and traditions with you.

This is a late post, but deserves it. We used Ahmad (Lost_in_Petra) during our October 2021 trip to Petra.

He's was our guide for a full day and then some.

Arrived the first night, and he treated us to a Bedouin style feast under the stars/ in a cave that he and his comrads made!

He then explained to us what the following day would look like. Meeting time, etc.

The next day, we had Petra pretty much all to ourselves for a short time. Ahmad was not only our chef the first night, but he was our guide and photographer on the second day. He is willing to take your photo/video and knows all the Instagram shots. Just check his Instagram out! He is well known in Petra, friendly and knowledgeable. He also helps communicate with the other guides in getting horses and camel shots.

The third day, he guided us again to The Monastery.

If I ever return to Jordan or Petra, I would only use Ahmad (Lost_in_Petra).

Incredible experience for our first time at Petra. Got some awesome views that most people won't get to experience going the normal route. Ahmed our guide was great, very personable and knowledgeable. Be prepared to walk and climb some steps, but its worth it.

Hiking in the valleys of Petra early in the morning was such as an unforgettable experience! Ahmed is friendly and really knowledgeable about the area. He also has a good sense of humor.

What an amazing tour!! We had a wonderful time with Ahmed and his colleague as we went to some hard to reach places with breathtaking views. Ahmed is very knowledgeable about the local history as it’s his family’s own history to tell. 10/10 would highly recommend!

A very unusual experience so much different from regular excursions, Ahmad will show you unique paths with authentic and breathtaking views that you will never forget. All this sprinkled with a little exercise, humor and extreme friendliness. 10/10!

My husband and I recently went on the private 3-hr Inside Petra tour with Ahmed and had the most incredible time. First off, the adventure itself is amazing— you’re taken up the back route to a viewpoint overlooking the Treasury, away from the crowds, and stepping out onto that ledge is an unforgettable moment.

But most of all, Ahmed is an AMAZING guide. He’s very patient and funny, and he will absolutely take care of you even on some of the tricky rock scrambles. He’s also a total photo pro and will climb to some wild heights to get the perfect shot. Seriously, if there is one singular reason to take this tour, it is Ahmed. He goes above and beyond, and he will make your trip memorable, guaranteed. By the end of the trip, you will feel like you’ve just made a new friend. 10/10, would absolutely do this again.

Ahmed is a genuine honest guide, I would recommend him to anyone visiting Petra. I selected his service based on the reviews here, and I'm sure you will not be disappointed if you do the same.

No Words to describe this tour. My husband and I loved everything, the hiking, the climbing, the views. It’s 100% worth it.
Ahmed is a really good man. We would love to come back one day and for sure we will contact him again. Thank you for everything. Enjoy your life.
