Visitors to Israel who are based in Jerusalem can make a
side trip to Jordan. 1-2 day Petra and Jordan tours from Jerusalem cross into
Jordan from the Arava Border Crossing in Eilat. Arriving at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport independently you will take a short flight to Eilat where you will be
met by a tour representative and transferred to the Arava Border Crossing then
continue on to Jordan.
There are one-day tours from Jerusalem to Petra that include the Tel-Aviv to Eilat flight and a two-day tour to Petra that includes an overnight stay and free day in Eilat or accommodation in Petra, Wadi Rum, or Aqaba, Jordan.
On two-day tours, you can explore Petra and even experience a jeep safari in Wadi Rum. With 1-2 day tours that do not include the Tel-Aviv to Eilat flight, you have the option of purchasing the flight separately. 3-4 day Petra and Jordan tours from Jerusalem take a different route. These tours include pick-up and drop-off services from your Jerusalem hotel.
The tour proceeds across the Sheikh Hussein Border Crossing and continues on to Jordan. The 3-4 day Jordan tours from Jerusalem include overnight accommodation in Amman and at Wadi Musa near Petra. On these tours, you’ll see sites like Mt Nebo, Madaba, Jerash, and of course Petra.
All Petra and Jordan tours from Jerusalem include the services of a professional tour guide; assistance with the border crossing and air-conditioned transportation. The tours are available in several languages and on most days of the week. Prices do not include border crossing fees and visa fees.
Holders of some passports require a pre-arranged visa to enter Jordan and other nationalities can be issued a visa at the border. For more information, you are invited to contact our customer service staff.
