Overview
Visit the ancient city of Petra on a day trip from Eilat, with guides to take care of logistics so you can experience the remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site worry-free. Enter Petra on foot or horseback, traveling through the winding Siq to the Treasury, and then exploring rock-cut architecture carved into cliffs. Entrance fees, lunch, and transport are included, as is time for photo stops in the beautiful Jordanian desert.
What to Expect

Meet a driver at your Eilat hotel for a group trip to the Arava Border Crossing in a climate-controlled vehicle; border crossing times vary and are beyond the control of the tour operator.

When you reach Jordan, transfer into another climate-controlled vehicle and enjoy views of the low desert hills during the trip to Petra. Upon arrival, enter the UNESCO Site through the Siq, walking or riding a horse along the narrow path.

Take in Petra highlights, from the soaring Treasury to rock-cut tombs, and then sample Jordanian cuisine at a restaurant before the return trip to Aqaba.

While crossing the desert, stop to see the dramatic cliffs of Wadi Rum, and, if time allows, pause for a tour of Aqaba, Jordan’s bustling Red Sea port.

After crossing back into Israel, the day concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

2 day tour of Petra + Wadi Rum overnight was excellent!

This experience was a true highlight of our visit to Israel. Outside of the things the tour company cannot control (i.e., long wait at Jordanian customs), the organization was top notch and the coordination among the various parties involved was seamless. Highly recommend opting for...More

AMAZING experience!

We booked multiple tours with Tourist Israel and all were fantastic. Would definitely recommend, especially for tours going across borders (into the West Bank, or Jordan). Petra was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and our tour was fantastic!More

Great Experience

Although it's a long journey from Jerualem or Tel Aviv, the exerience is worth the long travel hours. Border crossing can be a little long and boring but the guides ensure that everything goes well. Be prepared for expensive crossing tariffs to be paid in...More

Not recommended - False advertising and a ridiculous amount of waiting at the border

We went for the one day tour to Petra, which was advertised as including a drive THROUGH Wadi Rum and if time permitted, Aqaba. We were forced to wait an absurd 2.5 hours at the border for "Fun" Tours (which actually provided the tour) to...More

There are good reviews on Eco tour. Anything, but the company I used. Recommend paying with credit card with the exception of taxes, just in case.
