Our 3 day tour to Petra and Wadi Rum from Eilat allows an in-depth visit of the two most iconic wonders in Jordan. After pick up from your hotel in Eilat, you will cross the border into Jordan, and make your way to Petra along the desert highway. You will spend the first day of your tour with a guide, discovering the secrets of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Nabatean city of Petra. The following day is dedicated to independent exploration of the site: you can return to your favorite place, or to hike along one of the trails, such as that to the impressive Monastery. In the evening, enjoy an authentic Jordanian dinner at our Bedouin Campsite in Wadi Rum, and lounge under stars in the desert sky. After an experiential night in the desert, sleeping in small tents or more permanent accommodation, wake up to enjoy a Jeep tour in the reserve of Wadi Rum, guided by local Bedouins. After this, head to the port city of Aqaba for a walk though its traditional Arab markets before crossing back to Israel and ending your tour in Eilat.

One word : AMAZING! I REALLY loved it. The buses were tidy and comfortable, the drivers were prudents and the guides SO NICE and knowledgeable. The tour itself so great, informative, and sights that make people go in « awe »when they see the picures. The overnight in Wadi Rum is a must!!! I would like to thank out Petra guide and also the gentleman who helped us through the process of going in to the Jordanian customs . They were really helpful. – Caroline, Canada
