trip from Dahab to Petra

Is it possible to book a reliable one day Petra trip staying in Dahab? For what price? Are the local travel agents OK?

In general, yes they are OK and on a par with other parts of the country. But they do use Jordanian tour companies to get you from the border with Eilat to Petra or from Aqaba Port if coming by ferry. Personally I would not recommend a day trip... two or three night tours allow you to see Petra in much greater depth, whilst a day trip allows just 3 hours or so, and works out more economical.

Sorry but I do not really go n for recommendations... but my advice remains stay in Petra for more than one night. You could easily make your own way to Aqaba and take a Jordanian tour company so maybe you should also look on the Aqaba / Petra forums under Jordan.
