Tour Schedule

With a free day in Eilat you can hang out on the beach, swimming and snorkeling among the coral reefs or enjoy more exhilarating activities. Try the many watersports or take a boat excursion on the Red Sea. Eilat has an IMAX theatre; underwater observatory and Dolphin Reef where you can swim with dolphins. In the surrounding mountains you can hike through the Red Canyon, take a camel or jeep excursion and visit Park Timna. Eilat is a tax-free city where you can shop-til-you-drop; one of the malls even has a large ice rink in the center!

The tour starts with a transfer from Eilat to the Arava border, where our representatives will meet you and assist with the visa requisition and border crossing. Our local tour guide will meet you on the Jordanian side of the border and you will start the two hour drive to Petra.
Traveling along the Desert Highway we pass breathtaking desert and mountain scenery. When we arrive in Petra you can choose to enter the city on foot or horseback. We’ll tour Petra, a magnificent archaeological site dating back about 2,300 years to when the Nabataean people carved their city out of red-hued rock cliffs. See intricately decorated tombs and grand temples as you walk down Petra’s ancient colonnaded street. Some of the rock facades will tower above you like the Treasury and the 40 meter high Deir Monastery. On the return journey we’ll stop at several observation points overlooking Wadi Rum, a desert wilderness known as the “Valley of the Moon.” We may have time for a brief panoramic tour of Aqaba, Jordan’s Red Sea port before ending this amazing tour day.
