Our Petra one day tour with overnight in Aqaba is an amazing way to experience Jordan. You will be picked up in Eilat and depart to your adventure and explore the ‘Lost City of Petra’, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Enjoy a comprehensive tour with our local expert and discover all the major highlights. After enjoying some free time, you will return to Aqaba, where you will spend the night. Experience Aqaba the next morning on your own and return to Eilat in the afternoon. Our one-day tour to Petra with an overnight in Aqaba departs every day and offers travelers the option to stay in Aqaba for a night.

If you’d like to spend a second night in Aqaba after your tour, there is a tour available with this option as well. The Jordanian visa fee of $60 is not required if you stay for 2 or more nights in Jordan. If you choose to spend two nights in Aqaba, the total cost of your tour will be similar to the cost of the one-day tour from Eilat. Over 20,000 people visit Jordan each year with Tourist Israel; will you join them?
