What to expect

This one day Petra tour from Jerusalem is a convenient way to visit Petra for those on a tight schedule. Available daily departing from Jerusalem, the tour transfers in the southern city of Eilat with full assistance to cross the border. Once in Jordan, drive past the stunning Wadi Rum desert landscape en route to Petra. With a knowledgeable English-speaking guide, enjoy a guided tour throughout the stunning UNESCO park.

Enter through the Siq, a long and narrow passageway upon the entrance filled with unique details including carvings and shrines. Hear the history of the “lost city” of the Nabateans, visiting ancient sites like the Treasury, Obelisk Tomb, Jabal Madbach (the sacrificial palace), Roman Theater and Mountaintop Tombs. After two hours of guiding through these sites, enjoy time to explore Petra at your own pace and explore at leisure. Later in the afternoon, it will be time to head back to the border and cross into Eilat before returning to Jerusalem (drop off in Tel Aviv is also available).
