Amman to Petra Destination Reviews

Nice trip
Bus Round Trip, JTT, Dec 18, 2023
The bus was clean and on time and got us very close to the entrance to the archaeological site. The return was also well handled by the staff. I am satisfied.
Bus Express, JTT, Jan 31, 2023
It is so easy to book and get confirmation in less than 24 hours. We got to the bus station (1.5 JOD by Uber from our Hotel), sit back and relax and we reached Petra with one time break at Midway in 3.5 hours. The services is on top, the driver drove steadily, breakfast and dinner are free (we did not know though). No hustle and bustle. Highly recommended!

Everything is fine but there is some confusion. I did not make another reservation from Amman to Aqaba for two passengers on October 11. The operators told me the same thing. Can you please check my reservation?

Not possible to charge the phone on the bus. No wifi on the bus. Only one bus line per day, only a single departure time per day. Only a single bus company operating.

It worked perfectly to book bus tickets for Jordan from Germany. The PDF e-ticket was converted into a normal ticket on site, the passports were checked again, but none of that was a problem. The luggage transfer also worked perfectly.

12goasia has a very reliable service to get the tickets and since them are not immediate they are also very responsive by answering . The bus service between Amman and Petra is also overall very good on time. The journey takes 3.5 hrs one way with a mandatory stop to a shop for 15 minutes both ways( 5 JD for a can of iced tea and one potato chips) Bus are medium buses with seats that are a bit narrow for two people but a/c .
