When planning a trip to Petra from Tel Aviv, there are various options available for 1-4 day tours. To begin, you can reach Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport independently and take a quick half-hour flight to Eilat, which is Israel's southernmost city. Some Jordan tours may include this flight, while others require you to purchase the flight separately.
Once you arrive in Eilat, a tour company representative will meet you and transfer you to the Arava border crossing into Jordan. Two-day tours to Petra from Tel Aviv usually include a night's accommodation in either Eilat or Jordan, with additional activities such as a free day in Eilat, a jeep safari in Wadi Rum, or a tour of Aqaba.
For longer tours, 3-4 day options include a pick-up and drop-off service from your Tel Aviv hotel, as well as visits to other Jordanian sites like Jerash, Amman, Madaba, and Mt. Nebo. These tours provide overnight accommodation in both Amman and Wadi Musa near Petra in Jordan.
Throughout all Petra tours from Tel Aviv, travelers will receive assistance at the border, travel in air-conditioned vehicles, and have the services of a professional tour guide. While the entrance fee to Petra is included, border and visa fees are not. Visitors to Jordan will require a valid passport and may require a pre-arranged visa depending on their nationality. However, most passport holders can obtain a visa at the border.
Holders of most passports can be issued a visa at the border. For more details about the border crossing procedure, visas and any other questions feel free to contact our customer service staff. It is possible to arrange tours to Petra from Tel Aviv in several languages and on most days of the week.
