    We are interested in visiting Jordan in August and wonder how difficult it is to visit Petra. We would like to do this independently, combined with a tour of Egypt, perhaps on our own.

    Petra isn't difficult to's just that is too big to explore it all in one day. You will need at least a few days to explore the area. Also, you need to have a good fitness level because to reach Petra’s famous monastery you must take a long climb up steps

    Also, tour guides to Petra are licensed by the government and are generally good, though it's a good idea to find out that the guide actually speaks your language.
