What To Expect - Petra Day Tour from Jerusalem

Wake up early for a whole day of adventure: relax as our advanced tour bus takes you from Jerusalem to the beautiful south of Israel: the landscape will change color as the sun rises, and after crossing the Arahav Valley, you'll have a glimpse of the Red Sea and the Riviera of Eilat - Israel's best resort city.

Your next stop is the Israeli-Jordanian border, and then a 2.5-hour drive through the unique landscape, all the way to the lost Nabatean city of Petra – considered one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. 

The city was carved into the surrounding red cliffs over 2,300 years ago, and many of its impressive temples were left almost undamaged.

See the enigmatic Djinn Blocks, constructed to house phantoms and make a wish touching the stone, Take fantastic shots of the Obelisk Tomb, then go down the Siq – a multicolor, smooth canyon all the way to the renowned Petra Treasury; here you'll stand in awe in front of its impressive, huge columns and elaborate decorations.

explore the Royal Tombs and the Petra Theater – and see the many shrines, mausoleums, and relics of a lost culture. Complete your day with a long ride back, all the way to the drop-off point in Jerusalem. 

Enjoy a Worry-Free Vacation: Our representatives will assist with the visa requisition and border crossing. Our expert local tour guide will meet you on the Jordanian side of the border.

Note that a 1-Day Tour of Petra won't leave you with enough time to fully explore this wonderful archeological park. This is why most travelers recommend a 2-Day Tour to Petra, in order to see Ad Deyr - the iconic Petra Monastery up on the ridge and visit Qasr Al-Bint Temple and the Great Temple of Petra.
