Fodor's Review

Horses used to be the conveyance of choice for the approximately 1-km (½-mi) trip to Petra's main antiquities. Your entry ticket currently entitles you to a horseback ride (no carriage) along the first 800 yards of the path before it narrows to become the Siq; you'll still be expected to tip though (about 5JD), and many people skip this.
