Why is this tour less expensive than the other operators?
• We are supported and controlled by ASEZA (Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority).
• We get our booking direct from our clients, no intermediate channel managers, thus you’re getting product right from the source, and hence our advertising/marketing costs are lower. Other companies advertise elsewhere and pay commissions and hence charge you more.
• Our mission is to provide you with a memorable experience of the real Jordan; we want you to carry home the image of the Amazing Jordan to remind you of our remarkable country – exciting, exotic, interesting and unforgettable. We really care that you will be more than satisfied with our services because we want you to book with Wonders T&T again and recommend us to your friends. This is our profit and advertisement.
Does the tour cost include taxes?
All the mentioned rates are in US Dollars and including; 10% services charge, 16% government tax.
Will my driver be my guide?
No, Driver can’t be the tour guide at the same time.
Your driver will not be a certified guide. Drivers have a lot of information about the country, traditions and the sites in general, but they are not professional certified guides. Even if the driver speaks fluent English, it is also impossible to have your driver to be your tour guide at the same time. This is just the rule of Wonders Travel and Tourism.

The most comfortable seasons, weather-wise, are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November).
At these times, temperatures are pleasantly warm, with highs around 30C. The wildflowers are out and the angled sunshine highlights texture and color in the desert rocks. Summer temperatures (between late May and early September) can be blistering, often reaching 40C or more. In winter (from late November to late February) Desert in Jordan (Petra, Wadi Rum ..) gets very cold, with rain and occasional snow: it’s rarely more than 15C, with temperatures often dropping below freezing at night.
How should I dress?
There is no dress code for Jordan. Generally: When planning your clothing needs (particularly women), remember that you will be travelling in a Muslim country, though not a very conservative one.
Four tours, our recommendations:
For summer months: cotton shirt or T-shirt, shorts (not too short!!), hat & comfortable walking shoes or good sturdy sandals. For winter months: Warm clothes in layers (easy to take off as you walk along and warm up) comfortable walking shoes. Keep in mind that during winter months (October – March) it may rain & even snow.
Do I Have To Tip?
Tipping is not a must but will be greatly appreciated. Since it is a personal matter, please do not feel uneasy about it. What or when you choose to tip depends entirely on how you rate a service but you are not under any obligation to do so. But we suggest you tipping those who have been especially kind and done extra service for you.
Do I have to ride the horse into Petra?
The horseback ride upon entry to Petra is included in Petra entry fee price, but the ride is optional. The horseback ride is very short (about 700 m’ / 2100 ft.) and goes from the gate till the opening of the Siq – the narrow gorge.

If you chose to ride the horse, keep in mind that you have to tip the horseman – if you don’t tip the horseman he will not let you off the horse 🙂 !
