From Jerusalem: Petra 2-Day Tour

1. From Jerusalem: Petra 2-Day Tour

This fully-packed two-day tour begins in Jerusalem. Driving through the Judean desert, head towards the border and go through the Allenby Bridge/King Hussein crossing into Jordan.

Eventually, arrive at your accommodation for the night, a Bedouin camp near Petra. The Bedouin hospitality, including an Arab-style dinner, will open your heart. Before going to sleep on a comfortable bed, sit beneath the clear desert skies and stargaze, as you have a cup of local tea. Wake up and start the day with breakfast in camp before heading out to Petra. One of the world's seven wonders and Jordan’s most treasured attraction, Petra is an unforgettable place. It was carved into the red rocks of the soaring cliffs in the early 1st century as the tomb of a Nabataean king and was hidden under sand for centuries before recently becoming accessible again. A licensed tour guide will lead you through the Siq (a narrow gorge), the Treasury, and the Amphitheater while you marvel at the beauty of each structure. Following, you will have time to explore independently: climb to the Royal Tombs, walk down the Roman Cardo or hike up to the Monastery. Meet the rest of the group again for lunch in Wadi Musa, before returning back to Jerusalem via the King Hussein/Allenby border crossing.

Informative guide and good food. Accomodation was simple but clean. The separate bathroom/shower area was also clean. Petra was amazing but the 4.5 hours there was a bit too short for me. There is so much to see that 6-8 hours at the site or even better, 2 separate days at the site would be even better. Also Abraham tours was a bit disorganized on our return to Israel and we had to wait about an hour at the border for them to get an additional bus to us as their original plan of combining two tours didn't quite work out. Having said that they did rectify the situation pretty quickly.

Great experience with Mohammad! The perfect day and if you have time to make it to Petra, this is the way to do it. Mohammad really went above and beyond to make our experience awesome!!

Sehr gut organisiert. Alles hat reibungslos geklappt. Die Übernachtung im Beduinencamp ist ein einmaliges Erlebnis.

Yes I love it. It’s a must if you love nature and in for something unique

Great time going to the dead sea, easy travel, and great guide!
