Take this incredible Petra tour from Eilat which starts with a 2.5-hour drive through the majestic, pristine desert landscape, past ruby mountain sceneries, and stunning views on our way to Petra.
The Nabataean culture carved the city of Petra right out of red-colored rock cliffs about 2,300 years ago. Nowadays, Petra is an untouched archaeological site; We pass obelisks and cave tombs, then enter Petra on foot or horseback via a long narrow gorge or “Siq” flanked by high rock cliffs.
As we reach the end of the Siq, the incredible Petra Treasury looms up in front of us. The Treasury's facade is intricately decorated and carved with columns, statues, and a 3.35-meter-high urn.
The tour takes you to tombs that will make you feel like Indiana Jones, and other structures all carved out of the rosy rock cliffs. See the Palace Tomb spires over the ridge, decent to the ancient Petra Theater, and make a wish at the Djinn Blocks.
After 3-4 hours in Petra, we will head south toward Eilat, through the beautiful wilderness.
Enjoy a Worry-Free Vacation: 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 expert local tour guide will meet you on the Jordanian side of the border and your adventure will begin.
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.
