    Myself and my wife went to Jordan for our honeymoon, while in wadi rum we got a taxi to Petra, Firas Alfarajat was our driver and wow he went above and beyond!

    Our journey from wadi rum to Petra was perfect, stopping off on route for a coffee and to get pictures of the lovely scenery.

    After we explored Petra,Firas picked us up the following day to drive us to Amman, he even stopped at the Dead Sea so we could have a bath! 😄

    He even organised for his friend to take us to Amman airport on the last day of our honeymoon.

    Firas is loyal, kind and a genuine nice guy, I know if we had any problems while in Jordan Firas would be there to help us out.

    His prices are cheap and he is very reliable! Thank you Firas you made our time in Jordan extremely memorable, I hope to see you in Cyprus soon! 🎉

    Nothing is like this scenery ! The fascinating Al Khazneh is one of many spectacular Arabic Nabataean Features carved into sandstone cliffs, it is indeed a breathtaking scenery when you walk through the Siq and at the end of this passage you get a glimpse of Al-Khazneh for the first time in your life. Don’t miss it .

    Amazing time tunnel, this is the feeling I got passing through this main entrance to reach Al Khazneh of the magnificent Nabataean Petra, the walk is thrilling and never experienced before.

    It is off the beaten path and doesn't take long to walk up to the top (approximately 20 minutes straight without stopping).

    The Royal Tombs of Petra had two layers of vaults and is thought to be the tomb of the Nabatean king, to reach them you have to climb a stairway Malchus II. It was converted into a church by the Byzantines.

    Was pleasantly surprised after the reviews I read here. The experience is mostly the thrill of being able to walk around at night, but that’s pretty amazing. The show isn’t too flashy but a good experience, with simple instrumentals and singing that highlight the culture and seem like you could be taken back 2000 years. Only the treasury is lit up and toward the end, but the experience isn’t a light show really. Yes, there were likely hundreds of people but I actually enjoyed and preferred that at times. People were for the most part polite and while going down just ambled together at a relaxed rate. It felt safer that way in the dark and part of a communal experience… easy to imagine a pilgrimage years ago. Just leave a little earlier than 10 and you’ll have the walk going up almost to yourself. Just be careful in the dark! The lanterns are lovely but almost entirely decorative. Especially once in the canyon w less artificial light, it is very very dark and one must be careful for sure. I wouldn’t recommend this for those with mobility issues, unfortunately. I would say that this was an easy adventure… relatively easy hiking but enough of adventure, navigating the dark, nonetheless. The tip I read here about trying to get a seat at the far left is great… nice padded benches outside the shop. Also, contrary to what I had thought, you did not need a day pass as well… so the price isn’t cheap but it’s a nice supplement to a trip to Petra! Enjoy the scenes at night, w the lovely stars above!

    The Obelisk Tomb is a Nabataean multi story burial complex that was constructed in the first century BC in Petra. It consists of two story tomb carved from the solid rock towered by four obelisks, which is very interesting and should not be missed .

    Like everything around the Petra complex a place well worth seeing. Also since it's the only area shaded from the sun a good place to sit and relax.

    It was a great evening and perfect way to experience the local cuisine. The chef picked a lot of recipes and it seemed daunting seeing them all on the white board. We made them all. The chef was very patient and fun to work with. It was a very small class so we got a lot of tips (e.g. chopping faster safely). Only two suggestions: (1) make sure you are hungry so you can fully enjoy all the amazing food you prepare; (2) when making reservations is to ask how many people will be in the class since they can hold up to 40 which means less hands on time for each person.

    Fine example of non cave buildings around the Petra complex. Built in the post Nabataean era and worth a slight detour from the main road.

    The combination of colours in the rock facade makes this a very nice place to visit. It's a short way up from the main road.
