PETRA FAQs AND INFORMATION

 Spot Guides for Petra

We include a 2.5 hour guided tour for Petra in our tours. Normally the guided tour will be conducted by one of the guides that are contracted by our agency.

 You might find the guiding fees we offer are different from the rate available at the visitor's center of the site, but please consider the following :

The Local guides (who are at the visitor’s center of Petra site) are assigned at the visitor's center of the site and are employees of the Jordanian Ministry of Tourism. Travel Agencies cannot guarantee the quality of their services.

The guides that we employ at JHT we can guarantee the quality of their service with the following standards & criteria :

-Language fluency & its accent

-Historical and archeological background & knowledge

-Excellent customer service

In peak season we do not have enough contracted guides and therefore we may need to employ the services of a guide from the Visitors Centre guided tour. If the situation occurs that JHT guides won't be available on that day for our clients, then we will advise you and you can make the decision if you would like a local guide from the Visitors Centre. If for any reason there are any complaints about the Ministry of Tourism Guide then this should be reported to the Visitors Centre as we are not responsible and cannot guarantee the service and quality of those guides.
