Little Petra, is not visited by the bus tours, making it pleasant and quiet. A short walk through the area, no gate charge to enter. If you have time and enjoyed Petra, make this side trip. Again pleasant and quiet.

Small compared to big Petra but perhaps more authentique. In 40 minutes you have seen it. With a guide we paid no entrance.

I visited it before seeing Petra and should be done this way. It is beautiful in itself but much smaller than Petra.

You don't need a guide for Little Petra it is only a couple of hundred metre long. There are locl guides just after the car park if you really want one. It is far to far to walk to Petra itself, took us 15 mins on the coach.
