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. Once in Jordan, visit the historical site of Mount Nebo, a unique viewpoint of the Jordan River's west bank. After lunch at a local restaurant, take your time and gaze at the ancient mosaic map of Jerusalem in the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George at Madaba. From there, enjoy a scenic drive south. 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.

From Eilat: 2-Day Petra & Wadi Rum Tour with Camp Stay

2. From Eilat: 2-Day Petra & Wadi Rum Tour with Camp Stay

Petra is the most famous tourist site in Jordan today. Petra was once occupied by the Nabateans, and almost everything in Petra was constructed by them. Visiting Petra, you'll be able to see over 800 objects, including the famous treasury, temples, mourning houses, caves, and more. Wadi Rum is everything you'd expect of a quintessential desert: extreme in heat in the summer and freezing temperatures in the winter. It is violent and moody as the sun slices through the chiseled canyons at dawn or melts the division between rock and sand at dusk. It is exacting on the Bedouin who live in it and vengeful on those who ignore the dangers it presents. Experience its power and beauty with your expert guide. Your tour will begin with a pick up from your hotel in Eilat at 08:30 AM. After crossing the Arava border, you will drive to Wadi Musa Petra and tour the site. After the tour, you will eat lunch in Petra and drive to Wadi Rum and stay overnight at an authentic Bedouin camp. Along the way, you will learn all about the Nabataeans, their history, their art, gods, and the Bedouin way of life. Upgrade your experience in the desert to a 4-star tent with a private bathroom which includes a shower and a toilet in the tent.

The tour was amazing. Ihab, our guide, was a wonderful person. He supported us throughout the whole process and, even though we requested last minute destination changes and added an extra person to the tour, it was no problem and he was concerned about giving us the best experience possible. I highly recommend this tour, and if you hire it ask for Ihab, he will make your experience the best of the trip.

An amazing day, with beautiful experiences. Our guide at the tour when we walked inside Wadi Musa and Petra was very pleasant and spoke English fluently. We would like to give a special thank you and all our best recommendations to Mr. Ali, our driver to and from Petra, he made every trip we had all worth it. We will definitely go to Jordan again! All the best.

Jawdat Yaseen is a great driver: very polite, friendly and punctual. It was an enormous pleasure to ride with him. It's perfect! Jawdat is a “pearl rare”. Journée patfaite!
