What To Expect

The Petra tour from Tel Aviv starts with a short flight south from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport to the Ramon Airport near Eilat. After crossing the border, a local expert tour guide will meet you and the journey continues along a picturesque desert Highway to Petra. We take a 2.5-hour drive through the magnificent, pristine desert landscape, past ruby mountain sceneries, and stunning vistas on our way to Petra.

The Nabataean people carved Petram their capital city, out of red-colored rock cliffs about 2,300 years ago. Today Petra is an untouched archaeological site; We pass obelisks and the 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 down Petra’s ancient road past shines, temples, and tombs that will make you feel just like Indiana Jones, and other structures all carved out of the reddish cliffs. You'll see the mysterious Djinn Blocks, visit the majestic Palace Tomb, marvel at the mesmerizing colors of the Silk Tomb, and learn about the fascinating Nabatean city. After 3-4 hours in Petra, we will head south toward Eilat, through the gorgeous 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.
