How to visit Wadi Rum

  • I visited Wadi Rum for 1 day and 1 night the day after Petra. From my research I don't think it's possible to see Wadi Rum on your own. Most people book a jeep/camel/hiking tour that leaves from the Wadi Rum Village, lasting anywhere from 1 day to 3 days
  • I booked a tour with these guys. Make sure you figure out with your guide ahead of time where he will meet up with you, as some of them meet you at the Wadi Rum Visitor Centre and others will meet you at the Wadi Rum Village. Also write down or print out the name and the confirmation number of your tour.
  • Tripadvisor has a whole page of these tours
  • Getting from Petra to Wadi Rum
  • After Petra, I stayed the night in Wadi Musa (which is the closest town to Petra), and had my hotel there reserve a spot for me on the 630am bus from Wadi Musa to Wadi Rum (the bus picked me up from the hotel) for 7 JOD
  • The bus to Wadi Rum took 2 hours. It first stopped at the Wadi Rum Visitor Centre, where I had to hop off to get the entrance ticket for 5 JOD (~5 GBP). The bus then went to the Wadi Rum Village where I met up with my guide
  • Getting from Wadi Rum to Amman
  • The next day, I took a taxi from Wadi Rum Village to the city of Aqaba, costing 25 JOD (~25 GBP)
  • I made sure the taxi driver dropped me off at the JETT bus station in Aqaba
  • From Aqaba, I took a JETT bus to Amman, which was 8.6 JOD
  • Here's the official JETT bus schedule and price list. For Amman stations look for Abdali, Tabarbour, 7th Circle, and Wehdat
  • The desert tour itself was great. We went to see a bunch of places on the jeep and camped out in the desert at night. The guides took care of everything so all I had to do was enjoy the trip and taking photos
