Full description

The tour begins in Jerusalem, as you head toward the Jordanian border. Cross at the Allenby Bridge border, and enter Jordan, driving through the desert for about an hour to then have a local lunch. Continue towards the exquisite desert landscape of Wadi Rum, virtually untouched by humanity. Travel through the vast scenic desert valley on a 4×4 Jeep tour, providing the best possible experience of this moon-like landscape, the red sand dunes, towering cliffs of weathered stone, and desert animals with the sunset’s beautiful colors.

From there, go to a Bedouin camp near Petra where you will enjoy Bedouin hospitality, including an Arab-style dinner and a comfortable bed for the night. Before going to sleep, sit beneath the clear desert skies and stargaze, as you drink a cup of delicious Bedouin tea. Waking up early the next morning, have a quick breakfast before getting on the bus and departing for Petra. This day of the trip is focused entirely on Petra, a famous archeological site set in a stunning red sandstone landscape. Discover the site, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

You will have the whole morning to tour Petra with a guide, before taking a lunch break at a local restaurant. Then in the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to explore the various sites, such as the monastery, on your own before heading back to camp for dinner and another night in the Bedouin camp. The third day of this tour will be a half day. Start with breakfast at the campsite and from there drive to Madaba, an ancient Jordanian city, and go up to the viewpoint of Mount Nebo. Have lunch and then head back to the Allenby Bridge border crossing, and arrive in Jerusalem in the afternoon.

I did a tour with Abraham Tour to Jordan- the 3 day option and we all had a blast. I did it in September 2022 I lucked out in having an amazong bunch of people in my group, our guide Wally (spelt I think Wa`hle or similar) was amazing. He is easily in my top 5 guides ever.... Abraham have terrible reviews from 2019 but newer reviews were amazing so I took a chance and decided it will be them. Also, theit itinery aligned with what I want to see. They were truly really good and my whole group had a lot of fun. I said I will go back to Jordan and I think partly because of the fun time I had. I spent a couple days wondering- 2 or 3 day tour. 3 day tour might be more expensive, but I do think you need a full day in Petra. We walked so much and went to the monastery and around. I think a couple hours are not enough. If you go for the 3 day one, the visa fee is lifted. Jordan is amazing and the Jordani guide and driver were terrific!

This was a well organized trip, which put a lot of interesting things in each day, so that we had 3 fully packed days. We had the impression to get the most possible out of everything, and there were also a lot of nice meals and the very special venue of the tends near Petra. Best of all was the super well informed and friendly guide Ali, who provided us always with all the relevant background information, answered every question with attention and a deep knowledge and took care of every small and big problem. He encouraged us to ask always more in order to get a real understanding not only of the sites but also of Jordan and it’s people. He gave us a very direct approach to everything. Only thing not organized perfectly well was the journey back to Israel: we got the last meal at noon and then had a long stretch to the border and further to Jerusalem. With the bus arriving late at the border we were back only at 8:30 pm… One (additional?) night within Wadi Rum would be very nice!

The days in Jordan flew by and our amazing guide Ali made the tour unforgettable. He imparted his knowledge in a pleasant way and you could tell his 20 years of experience. I always felt that I was in good hands with him and the driver. The camp is in a fantastic location and the sunsets and starry sky were a dream. The tents and beds were comfortable and fit for purpose, the sanitary facilities were clean. I was very happy that it was still low season, so Petra and the camp were not as busy as expected. Wishes: Make a stop in the capital on the first day, after all you drive past it so close (possibly a viewpoint, omit the castle). On re-entering Israel to find a bus with a note from Abraham Tour and a bus driver who had been informed by Abraham Tours how many people to take. This small part just after the border was really badly organized.
