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.
