Update, please--Day trip from Aqaba to Petra

Recommended Posts

In searching for information about day trips from a cruise ship to Petra, the most recent was 2012. Anyone who has made this excursion, an update would be much appreciated.

We are beginning to look into Celebrity cruises from Rome to Abu Dhabi and/or Dubai for late 2019. Petra would be one of the highlights to include, if possible.

Any online links to private tour companies that have proven good for forum participants would be tremendous.

Thanks.

We took the ship’s excursion to make sure we were back on time, given that it is a long trip. It is fantastic, but quite hard work, as it is a long walk through the Siq to get to Petra, but very well worth it.

I am just starting to research a trip to Egypt and Petra and came across this video.

Enjoy.

I did a complete review of our April, 2018 Abu Dhabi to Rome cruise on the Constellation, which included a lot of info and photos of our day trip to Petra from Aqaba. An amazing place to visit. You can see our review on our website that is linked to in my signature. I hope that it helps you with your planning.

In all the pictures and videos I've seen about Petra, it appears like no one can enter any of these entrances....just look at them from outside. Is this true?

Thanks for the great input from all. It was especially good to have the links I can pursue.

I rather like the idea that tourists are not allowed in the buildings. They are just empty spaces and too many tourists inside could lead even to unintentional damage to these world treasures. I know other places where just the build-up of breath and moisture from throngs of tourists has resulted in irreparable damage to some sites.
