A nice day in Wadi Musa Petra.
Note that when you prebook the arrangement, you only pay for a regular guide up to a certain point witin the area. Then the guide will offer you extended tours for a extra charge. The guide will explain different routes within Petra. Unfortunately I didnt ask how much it would be in advance. That came as a chock afterwards, another 50 JOD! On top of that you should be aware of that the guide will present you to different salesmen witin the area for buying souvenirs often handmade of poor women that can cost you even more. Its almost that they expect you to take the horse carriage through the Sic on your way back, which leaves you with another 20 JOD to pay and another 10 JOD to tip the guide.
Still it was the most awesome place to be at and you could feel the history wings over the place.
Dont forget to drink plenty of water. It is really hot was there in the beginning of aug.
