Meet your local private guide. Begin your adventure by walking to the 1.2 km long, narrow canyon, the so called Siq, with its colourful sandstone. At the end of the Siq you will be rewarded with a view of the breathtaking Treasury. The monument consists of an enormous facade which is about 30 meters wide and 43 meters high, engraved out of the red rose sandstone in the early 1st century. You have plenty of photo opportunities. Continue via the Street of Facades to the Royal Tombs and Pharaoh's Castle. After around 2 hours the guide says farewell to you at the restaurant area. You have free time to explore Petra on your own. The young at heart for instance have the chance to climb the 800 stairs to the 45 meters high Monastery El Deir. Return to the main gate. Your driver awaits you and takes you back to your hotel in Amman.
