Overview

This Petra and Wadi Rum 2-day tour from Jerusalem will show you enchanting Middle Eastern landscapes, the well-known city of Petra - one of the Seven New Wonders of the World - and an exciting jeep safari through Wadi Rum.

Travel south in an advanced bus, then swiftly cross the border into the Kingdom of Jordan. Step through Aqaba's picturesque alleys to Mamluk Castle - an Ottoman fort overlooking Aqaba Bay's border nexus. You'll have free time to enjoy awesome beach activities such as boating and snorkeling and have fun at an excellent private beach with a pool and a Jacuzzi. 

Next, you'll head out for an exhilarating jeep tour of Wadi Rum, a remarkable desert wilderness with a moon-like landscape and an opportunity to take some fantastic photos. Several Star Wars movies were shot here, and you'll see why.

After an authentic, yet pampering stay in a genuine Bedouin camp, You'll head for Petra. This fabulous city was carved out of the red-hued desert cliffs 2,300 years ago, and its shrines and majestic mausoleums await you - starting with the awesome Petra Treasury. See the mysterious Djinn Blocks, explore the ancient Royal tombs, discover Nabatean History at the Petra Theater, and take fabulous pics of this UNESCO world heritage site.

Tour Overview

You'll start within the city of Aqaba, and walk through its colorful, picturesque little alleys. Then continue to Mamluk Castle – a 16th-century dreadnaught, offering a stunning panorama; in a single glance, you'll see Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. 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. 

Next, you'll 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"). 

See famous rock formations such as the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, and learn about the exciting geology around you.

Finish the Jeep Safari at daylight's end, not before experiencing the unforgettable Wadi Rum sunset.
