How it works:
- After entering Petra, touts will offer you a free horse ride, claiming it is included in your ticket.
- It is indeed, but once you get off, you will be hounded for a "compulsory" tip of 20 to 50 JD!
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Walking can actually be more interesting, as you get to see sites in more details. Further, the horses are mistreated and you can tell that they are exhausted.
- If you do take the horse ride, be prepared to pay a tip, or negotiate it in advance.
