What To Expect - Petra Tour by Bus from Tel-Aviv

Rise early for a full day of adventure: sit back and relax as our spacious tour bus takes you from Tel Aviv 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 pristine and untouched.

See the mysterious Djinn Blocks, created to hold spirits and make a wish touching the stone, Take great shots of the Obelisk Tomb, then continue down the Siq – a colorful, smooth gorge to the famous Petra Treasury; here you'll see all the jaws drop, in front of its amazing, huge columns and intricate decorations.

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

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.
