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.

Beautiful Tour of Petra with added night in Wadi Rum

I highly recommend this tour. Petra truly is a marvel and the extra night in the desert in Wadi Rum and the jeep ride the next day was awesome. Tourist Israel made the process of coming to Aqaba form Eilat and back seamless.
