About

Petra, originally known to its inhabitants as Raqmu or Raqēmō, is a historic and archaeological city in southern Jordan. Famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system, Petra is also called the "Rose City" because of the colour of the sandstone from which it is carved; it was famously called "a rose-red city half as old as time" in a poem of 1845 by John Burgon.

Jawdat Yaseen is a great driver: very polite, friendly and punctual. It was an enormous pleasure to ride with him. It's perfect! Jawdat is a “pearl rare”. Journée patfaite!
