This was such a disappointment, I wish someone had warned me against going. If you visit Petra by day, please skip it. You will only see the treasury light up in different colors, after listening to a Bedouin sing for 30 minutes. It's not worth...More

We read all the bad and good reviews and decided to see it anyway as we arrived to Wadi Musa just in time. We enjoyed the walk in the moonlight (got lucky with the full moon) and it was a good choice before exploring Petra...More

If you go by day, skip this. You'll take a few pictures with the Treasury lit up by different colored lights and that's it.

Noisy and absolutely not impressive. Especially if you visit the site during the day, you better go to bed early, save energy and money to explore further the next day I the early morning.

Sure, the walk to the treasury was nice and everything but it was poorly arranged and we waited for an hour for a dude to start playing the pan flute and a cup of tea. After that we left. I'm not sure if anything else...More

We did Petra by night before visiting Petra the next day and we consider the show as not the best value regarding the money spent. The show itself is sitting on a sand and listening of some traditional beduin music. The treasury surrounded by candles...More

We did this the day we arrived, then toured Petra the next morning. Seeing the treasury for the first time, at night, by candlelight, is just spectacular!!! The 30 minute walk is nice also, as the path is lit along the way, and the canyon...More

I apologize for the late response but you will certainly have to exit and pay to return. They are two separate events that both require payment to enter.

Yes, you can purchase just before, BUT what a tacky show. You will see nothing of Petra either on the walk in (in the dark over uneven, rough and sandy surfaces - 1.5 km). The Treasury will be lit only with candles placed... More
