We had a fantastic two and a half day experience in Petra and would like to thank Travel Local and your local partners in Jordan and especially our assigned agent Muhammad for organising our tour.
We had a fantastic two and a half day experience in Petra and would like to thank Travel Local and your local partners in Jordan and especially our assigned agent Muhammad for organising our tour. The organisational side was very efficient, the itinerary and practical arrangements with regard to transport and accommodation was explained in advance and fulfilled as per specifications. The assigned vehicle for the entire journey was very comfortable.
For those travelling via the Allenby Bridge we would recommend that the border procedure and costs (Israeli exit visas, bus ride over the bridge, etc.) should be explained in detail in advance. We have given the agency specific recommendations.
We were particularly impressed with our driver/guide who had a good sense of humour, impressive knowledge of the history of the region and its people and gave us excellent advice on local custom and traditions.
The following comments do not concern the remit of the agency's work. Research border crossing procedures before your trip. Petra is hot in September, the month we were there. Consider travelling later. Some may find exploitation of the animals on the site very upsetting. We would recommend that the visitors do not use animals as means of transportation.
