Our two day Petra and Wadi Rum Tour from Jerusalem departs every day with guaranteed departures, and allows you to visit two of Jordan’s most impressive gems in one easy package. It begins with a stunning drive through the Negev Desert to the Jordanian Border. From here, a ride along the ‘desert’ highway leads to Petra, one of the greatest, UNESCO recognized archaeological sites. With an experienced guide, you will explore the wonders of this ancient city. Lunch will be in a traditional Arabic restaurant, with delicious, authentic local cuisine. In the evening at Wadi Rum, gaze at the star-lit sky with an overnight stay in a Bedouin campsite. The next morning, after a quick breakfast, you will explore Wadi Rum via a jeep tour. This stunning and mesmerizing desert landscape is not to be missed! From there, you’ll head back over the border to Eilat, with time to check out the city, sunbathe on the beach and grab a meal. In the evening, you will return to Jerusalem.
This tour will continue to operate in 2018 with no need to pre-arrange a Jordanian visa
“The Petra and Wadi Rum tour from Jerusalem was exactly what I wanted. I would recommend the tour to others. I travel alone most times and this type of coordinated short tour works for me. But I do my homework, and read lots of others reviews before I book.” -Patricia, USA
“Good atmosphere in the group, good guide, good food and great place. Everything was perfect. Congratulations and see you next time.” -Jose, Spain
“We had an amazing experience, thank you so much for suggesting it and helping book it! The whole two day trip was really well organised and to a very high standard. We were particularly impressed by Elias, who was the perfect guide and host in Jordan.” -Rob, UK
