Tour Schedule

Arrive independently to Tel Aviv Sde Dov Airport and board your flight to Eilat, the southernmost city of Israel on the shore of the Red Sea.

The tour starts with a transfer from Eilat Airport 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 making our way back to Eilat Airport for your flight to Tel Aviv.

Depart from Eilat back to Tel Aviv Sde Dov Airport having had a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.

What To Expect

The Petra tour from Tel Aviv starts with a short flight south from Tel Aviv’s Sde Dov Airport to Eilat. Although you need to get yourself to the airport independently the flight is included in the tour price. You will be met at the Eilat Airport and transferred to the Arava Border crossing.
Our representatives will assist with the border crossing procedure. Once in Jordan a local tour guide will met you and the journey continues along the scenic Desert Highway to Petra. The Rose City of Petra was carved out of rock cliffs over 2,000 years ago by the Nabataean people. Enter Petra on horseback or on foot through the narrow Siq, a gorge flanked by soaring cliffs.
As you enter Petra the sight that meets your eyes is the Treasury, a tomb with a breathtaking façade carved into the cliff with columns, statues and decoration. You may recognize the Treasury façade from the film Indiana Jones. In Petra tour the tombs, see temples and walk along the ancient colonnaded street admiring the intricately carved rock facades.
The stunning structures carved out of the red-hued rock cliffs served as the capital of the Nabataean civilization. As a stop on the ancient trade route from the Arabian Peninsula to the Mediterranean Petra welcomed merchant caravans from far and wide. The city was a vital oasis in the harsh desert environment and it had a plentiful water supply thanks to the ingenious water gathering system devised by the Nabataeans. Once you have seen the sites of Petra it is time to make the return journey through the dramatic desert landscape to Eilat for your flight back to Tel Aviv.
