This Petra and Wadi Rum 2-day tour from Eilat combines exotic Middle Eastern landscapes, the iconic city of Petra - one of the Seven New Wonders of the World - and an exhilarating jeep safari through Wadi Rum.

You’ll be picked up in Eilat and taken swiftly across the border into the Kingdom of Jordan. Start with a visit to Mamluk Castle, a fort overlooking the border nexus of Aqaba Bay. Then enjoy free time to explore the seaside city of Aqaba, and enjoy beach activities such as boating+snorkeling, and fun on a private beach. 

Next, you'll take an exciting jeep tour of Wadi Rum, a distinctive desert wilderness with a moon-like landscape and an opportunity to snap some amazing photos. Several Star Wars movies were shot here, and you'll see why.

After an authentic, yet pampering night in a real Bedouin camp, You'll head for Petra. This extraordinary city was carved out of the red-hued desert cliffs 2,300 years ago, and its temples and tombs await you - starting with the famous Petra Treasury. This intricately decorated structure is a sight to behold and locals still believe it holds a hidden treasure.

See the mysterious Djinn Blocks and the unique Obelisk Tomb, Walk in the footsteps of kings to the Royal Tombs, and take awesome shots of the Nabatean Theater from between the impressive columns.

Next, you'll have free time to enjoy beach activities such as boating+snorkeling, and fun at an awesome private beach with a pool and a Jacuzzi. 

From there we'll head out to explore the fantastic Wadi Rum – a desert wilderness known as the "Valley of the Moon" – from the back of a powerful Jeep. 

This outstanding tour will take you through the unique landscape, which is out of this world: The photos you'll snap will look like they were taken on a Star Wars set - both "The Rise of Skywalker" and "Rogue One" were filmed here (And for lovers of classics: "Lawrence of Arabia").
