    We decided that it wasn't worth going just for one day and to really appreciate Petra, I think you need at least two. Emad at Dahab Excursiosn organised everything from the pick up at the hotel to the return journey to the hotel. He even organised a packed breakfast for us, which was a nice touch. The trip went pretty much flawlessly and Petra is an amazing place to visit. The price was fair as it included a night in a hotel (just beside the Petra entrance), entrance to petra which is 55 euro, buffet dinner, breakfast and lunch, and all transport.

    We also did the Mt. Sinai tour with Emad and it worked out great. We had an excellent guide and it was a nice morning.
