1 Day Tour to Petra - Private Tour Daily from Eilat

The tour to Petra starts from the pick-up in the morning (07:30-08:00am from the hotel in Eilat or the airport) and transfer to the Arava Border. After ending all border-formalities we will drive up to Petra through the "Desert Highway" and arrive to the "Rose Red City" - Petra - within 2 hours. We will enter the ancient city of Petra through the famous "Siq" - a narrow natural gorge that made the secret entrance to Petra. At once the valley of Petra will open in front of us, and we will see the famous "Khazane" ("Treasury"). We will visit the most famous monuments of Petra, carved in the red Sandstone and eat a buffet lunch (included) nearby, before we will return to our bus and leave Petra. After a short city-tour in Aqaba (the neighbor city of Eilat) we will reach the Arava Border and return to Eilat.

The tour inside the Petra site includes 8km walking and takes around 3.5-4 hours. One can use horses / donkeys / camels / carriages inside the site (some of the way). To be payable directly to the Bedouins.

Discount for big parties.
