    This trip was incredibly smooth especially considering we had to cross a border and deal with an Israeli and Jordanian travel agency partnership. We were accompanied every step of the way and by my count we had 5 people helping us. Despite the nearly 2 hour drive the 3 hours in Petra was definitely worth it. I was very surprised that we were only going to there for that long but it was very hot and we did not hike. The natural gorge and topography is fabulous but there is really only one building to see and you cannot go inside. There is little to learn as apparently there is not much known about the site and the civilization that was there. Be advised that it is a very long way back on foot or a 35 minute mule ride!
