A seriously memorable guide experience
Having had experiences with guides all around the globe, I can certainly say that Mamoun's expertise puts him at the top level. Being in his presence will absolutely enhance your experience of Petra, and you'll leave rethinking not only what you may have heard about Petra, but of language and how history is written. Not satisfied with the stories often told about Petra, Mamoun has devoted the past quarter century of his life to Archeoastronomy, to understand the real Petra story, and the Nabataeans who inhabited it. He's also the President of the Pioneers Association for Astronomical Tourism in Jordan. Seriously, book him.
