If you are visiting Israel you have the unique opportunity to include Petra and Jordan in your itinerary. Jordan and Israel share a border and the two countries have friendly relations so it is a simple process to cross the border for a visit. If you have limited time you can fit in a one-day tour to Petra but there are also Petra tours from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Eilat.
To join a Petra tour leaving via Eilat and the Arava Border Crossing, you will need to take a short flight from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport. The one-day Petra tours from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Eilat return on the same day. 2-day tours can include an overnight stay in Eilat or Jordan and even a jeep safari in Wadi Rum.
3-4 day tour packages to Jordan include pick-up and drop-off service from your Tel Aviv or Jerusalem hotel and take you into Jordan via the Sheikh Hussein Border Crossing. These tours include accommodation in Jordan and visit Jordanian sites like Amman, Madaba, and Mt Nebo as well as Petra.
On Petra and Jordan tours you are accompanied by a knowledgeable tour guide; travel in air-conditioned vehicles and have assistance at the border crossing. Tours are available in several languages. Visitors on Jordan tours require a valid passport and some nationalities require a prearranged entrance visa. For more information and any questions, you might have contact our customer service staff.
