Overview

This Petra 2 day tour from Eilat takes you into Jordan and along the Desert Highway to Petra. Enter Petra on foot or horseback through the “Siq”, a narrow gorge flanked by high cliffs. Petra was carved from red-colored rock cliffs more than 2,000 years ago and its breathtaking rock architecture has earned it UNESCO World Heritage Status. On day two you’ll have free time to explore Petra independently, revisit places you loved and discover new Petra sites. In the late afternoon rejoin the group and head back to Eilat via Wadi Rum. Time permitting take a brief panoramic tour of Aqaba.

Tour Schedule

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.
