Our Petra one day tour from Tel Aviv will take you on a visit to the unique and enchanted city of Petra. It might look like a long day, but the lifelong memories you’ll be left with at the end of your Petra Tour from Tel Aviv will make it worth it! Fully guided and including all transportation, guiding, water bottle, and entrance fees, this tour is a best-seller and a guest favorite.

Leaving from Tel Aviv in the early morning, you’ll travel to Eilat and transfer across the border into Jordan. Our tour departs early to ensure that we are the first group at the border in order to avoid delays and maximize the amount of time in Petra. Driving north to Petra, we’ll bring you to the amazing UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of Petra. Petra is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, a Nabatean city that was lost for hundreds of years. Rediscovered some 200 years ago, it is described by UNESCO as ‘one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage’. In our tour of Petra from Tel Aviv, you’ll explore the famous landmarks and hidden corners of the site, staring in awe at the imposing beauty of man’s construction almost 2,000 years ago. After visiting the site, you’ll head back to Tel Aviv passing by  Wadi Rum and the Negev Desert, stopping for a short view of the breathtaking desert landscape. You’ll return back to Tel Aviv in the evening having had an unforgettable trip. Over 20,000 people visit Jordan each year with Tourist Israel; will you join them?

Our tour includes $130 worth of entry fees to Petra!
