Petra Day Trips from Amman

Petra Day Trips from Amman

The ancient city of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, is the jewel of Jordan. And, though you could spend days exploring this spectacular sandstone settlement, travelers who are short on time can see the highlights of the ancient city during a day trip from Amman. Find out more below.  

Private Tours

If you’re on a tight schedule but want to see as much of Petra as possible, private tours are the way to go. With private tours from Amman, you dictate the timings. This means you can get your trip underway as early as you wish, or perhaps a little later, with pickup from your hotel. 

Opt for private round-trip transfers from Amman and either explore Petra independently or hire your own local guide. Alternatively, pick a more comprehensive private tour package that includes a guided excursion of Petra. Tours can be tailored to your specific interests, be they art, history, or culture. It’s also possible to add on additional experiences, such as a short horseback or camel ride, as well as visits to Little Petra and the Dead Sea.

Group Tours

As with private tours, sightseeing experiences vary depending on which tour you choose. Pick a bare-bones excursion that includes transfers from Amman and free time at Petra, or opt for an all-inclusive tour with round-trip transfers, a guided tour of the site, a horseback ride, and even lunch.
