Petra (Jordan) - Full Day Tour

Starts everyday about 6:50

pick up from your hotel

Price : $263 per person

(border tax $65 per person to be paid locally)

We begin the one day Petra Tour from hotels in Eilat around  6.50 to ensure we are amongst the first to arrive at the border crossing.

Our Eilat office staff will guide you efficiently through the border procedures, as you cross to Jordan your tour guide and tour staff will meet you. Here your Jordanian tour guide will take care of the border procedures and once the visas are issued we are on our way to Petra.

Once aboard the mini bus, you will receive bottled mineral water. It is not permitted to take food or drink into Jordan from Israel, but you may bring an extra bottle of mineral water in your bag if you choose.

You now begin the two-hour drive to Petra. Your specialist guide will give you an in-depth briefing on the history of Jordan and its culture. Nearing Petra we stop at a viewpoint overlooking the town of Wadi Musa (Moses Valley) and on a hilltop in the distance we can see the shrine, which marks the grave of Aaron, Moses' brother.

Before we start our tour of Petra, we enjoy some local Baklawa (Arabian cake).

From the 'Visitors Center' at Petra's entrance, we walk to the Siq Canyon (400 meters). Arabian horses are available for this short walk, but a tip is expected from the handlers of (2-3 Dinar or 5 dollars), we advise clients not to take these horse rides. It is preferable to walk with the guide to the Siq, this gives a better view of the sights on the way and you don't miss the introduction to Petra. On the route we see the ‘Silica Quarries', The Jinn Blocks and the first large site, the 'Obelisk Tomb'. At the entrance to the Siq we see the stone dam that protects Petra from floods and the ancient drainage channels of the site. Entering the Siq we see the remains of the Arch that marked the entrance to Petra. We also see the beginning of the Petra's ingenious water system that runs the whole length of the Siq. Within the Siq we find several deities and ancient carvings adorning its towering canyon walls. At the end of the Siq we find Petra's most renowned monument 'The Treasury' (in Arabic; Al Khazneh). Here we take a few minutes for photographs before continuing our tour along the impressive Street of Facades towards the Nabataean Theater. We get an impression of some of the most impressive graves 'The Royal Tombs'. If time allows, we walk along the Colonnade Street and visit the Great Temple. On the way back to the bus, you have time to take more pictures and to look again at the sites that interested you most.

For those who have difficulty with the walking the whole distance of Petra, carriages for two are available from the treasury and back again at the end of the day. This costs about $30 return journey, paid directly to the handler.

We leave the site and stop at a nearby restaurant in Wadi Mussa for a hearty buffet lunch which is included in the tour price, please remember that drinks are not included with meals and are paid for by the clients, this is usual practice on organized tours. The restaurant enjoys views of the mountainside and the town of Wadi Mussa (Mosses Valley) where Petra is located. We commence our return journey to Aqaba and Eilat. Before returning to the border crossing, time allowing, we stop at Aqaba's colorful market, here you can get some traditional Arabian sweets, souvenirs, or oriental spices. After getting an impression of Jordan's only port city, you return to Eilat and your hotel by evening.
