Our two day Petra and Wadi Rum Tour from Tel Aviv (or Jerusalem) is a great value way to enjoy the highlights of Jordan. Departing from Tel Aviv and transferring to Eilat, you’ll cross into Jordan, and head to Petra. You’ll be blown away and transferred into a different world as you tour the amazing city of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, a place that time has forgotten and the feats of mankind have been proven by. After reflecting on this incredible site with lunch at an authentic Jordanian restaurant, you’ll move on, staying overnight in a Bedouin campsite in Wadi Rum, and enjoying the authentic famous hospitality that the desert nomads have to offer. The following morning, the sunrise will breathe light onto this amazing desert landscape, which you’ll then explore with a jeep safari tour. Heading back south, you’ll visit Aqaba’s markets, and then free time to relax in Eilat and see some of its highlights if the schedule allows. You’ll arrive back in Tel Aviv that evening, having had a two day tour to Petra and Wadi Rum that you’ll never forget.
This tour will continue to operate in 2018 with no need to pre-arrange a Jordanian visa
“The trip was incredible thanks so much. I really appreciate the flexibility you guys had in accommodating our tour into Wadi Rum. Honestly, everything worked incredibly smoothly as well. All the guides were on time and made the experience seamless. I would do it again for sure.” -Nick S, USA
“Nizar, our tour guide. What a character, what a dude, what a king. He knew every angle for the best pictures any time of the day, was inclusive, hysterical, and an all around good time. I went into this trip open to the possibilities, and I never thought he could give me such a fruitful vision of Jordan’s past, present and future. He was fascinating, he was entertaining, he was knowledgable, and he taught us with facts rather than opinions. Nizar – highly recommended! You guys killed it with this tour. Loved every second of it. And by the way, I never write reviews about anything, but this trip was 100% worth it.” – Rebecca Z, Israel
“We were very satisfied with the tour to Petra. Very good assistance from everyone. Everyone was on time and the guide was very prepared and very kind.” -Luca, Italy
