"Petra By Night" Petra By Night Tip by RblWthACoz

Petra By Night, Petra: 4 reviews and 7 photos

for a mere 12 JD, as if the charge to get into Petra is not enough, you can do the Petra By Night tour. With candles lit the entire way, the tour goes from the gate to the Treasury and not beyond that. You are served tea at the Treasury and an English speaking guide gives a brief talk there. The tour begins at 8:30 and you will be back at the gate at 10:30.

Personally, I thought for the price it was not really worth it - even with the supposed 1,500 candles lighting my way.But it's the only legal way to get into Petra at night since it is a UNESCO protected sight now and people are no longer allowed to spend the night.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
