Full description

The tour departs from Eilat and heads towards Petra, crossing the Aravah border along the way.

Ride through the dusty desert landscapes, and marvel at the vast sandy scenery that stretches out all around you. Follow the scenic route alongside the mountains before arriving at Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Upon arrival, explore the highlights of the site with your expert guide and listen to fascinating stories and legends about the people who once lived here.

As you amble around, admire the vibrant hues of the rocks from which most of the buildings here were carved, earning Petra the nickname ‘red-rose city.'

It was an excellent trip. It took too long to get over the border to Jordan. But otherwise it was a great experience. Our guide spoke good English and was very patient with the group. The lunch was perfect to end the trip. The food was excellent. I went back for seconds!! Sandstone restaurant in Petra is 5 stars..

Very good organization and assistance at the border crossing in Israel and Jordan. Everything went very fast. And the trip to Petra ... waw! Nizar is the best...made all the money. An educated man, with a broad general culture, who presented us all the history of Petra, but also of the Middle East! Everiting is ok!
