Amman and Petra question. Please help.

Jump to last reply

Will be going alone to Turkey next March-April, and would like to visit Petra/Jordan for a few days. My itinerary is flexible. Have a few specific questions.

1) To Petra
Assuming that there is no direct flight from Turkey to Petra, I plan to go to Amman first - spend a couple of days, and find my way to Petra.

What is the best way to go from Amman to Petra? I don't want to join a tour because I want to spend 2-3 days in Petra. My research says it is a 3-hr ride and cost about 50 dinars. Is it possible to pre-arrange a cab/taxi?

Are there private guides that will take me to Petra (admittedly I have not done research on private guide)?

2) At Petra, is Wadi-Musa the only location where I can stay? are there other options/locations

3) I read that it IS possible to go into Petra by yourself? so I plan to either join a group tour, or get a private guide there for 1 day, and do it on my own on the seocnd day (to different places). Is that a good idea? I do not want to ride a camel or horse and do not mind walking.

Last fo all, can anyone recommend any other places in Jordan to visit before returning to Turkey? Thanks
