The trip was long. 12 hours pickup to drop off. Maybe 45 minutes getting into Jordan and 20 minutes getting back into Israel.
Petra was amazing. Worth the time and money. We went in November and it was COLD COLD COLD.....and windy. Guide was great, well informed, but went on a 30 minute rant at the beginning to tell us what was wrong in Middle East. Oil, money, it thanks. The lunch provided was brutal. But Petra was great. Want to go again in warm weather.

Wish we had more time at the actual sight and informed that it would give us more time if we rode a carriage in.
