A fantastic 2 day tour to Petra. On the first day tour Petra with a professional guide. On the second day return into the Petra site and take your time to tour on your own, and see what you missed on the first day.
Petra is located in the middle of the Jordan desert. It was once inhabited by the Nabataens in 312 B.C. until 700 A.D. Petra fell into decline after the big earthquake in 363 A.D., and was only rediscovered in 1812. In Petra there are over 800 sites to see, including statues, facades, the Roman theater, temples, and much more. Upon entering the Siq, you will walk a ways and come out of the pathway to get your first look at the famous Treasury. This famous facade gave Petra its standing as one of the seven wonders of the world.
