This Petra tour from Tel Aviv starts with a short flight south from Ben Gurion Airport to Ramon Airport in Eilat.
In Eilat - Israel's Best Resort City - you'll discover the coral reefs of the Red Sea, enjoy water sports, go ice skating, and shop to your heart's content at the tax-free malls. Spend the night in a great Eilat hotel and the next day cross into Jordan.
Travel along a Desert Highway with gorgeous views all the way to Petra, a city carved out of rock cliffs over 2,000 years ago. Enter through the narrow Siq - a colorful, smooth gorge between towering mountains. Stand in awe as the famous Petra Treasury appears behind the Siq wall and marvel at its splendor. Then continue to the Royal Tombs of ancient kings, and see the Nabatean Theater, in this wonderful Indiana-Johns-like experience.
Return to Eilat and take your flight back to Tel Aviv.
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.
