What You Can Expect
On arrival at Eilat Airport, meet your local guide and hop inside your air-conditioned minivan or coach. Cross the border into Jordan at Arava and take the scenic journey along the desert highway to Petra.
Stop at a viewpoint to absorb views of the Petra Mountains, and after a roughly 2-hour drive, arrive in Petra.
On arrival, set off on a guided walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site. Sculpted from rose-colored stone more than 2,000 years ago by the Nabataeans, this extraordinary city was once a major crossroads of ancient trading routes.
Follow your guide to the Siq, the narrow entrance gulley to the city that snakes between 650-feet (190-meter) rock walls. Hear about Petra’s history and relish your first sight of the Treasury (El-Khazneh), the rock-hewn building that starred in Hollywood films such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Marvel at the 131-foot (40-meter) building and hear how its original purpose remains a puzzle. Pose for photos by the magnificent facade before continuing through the gorge to see the spectacular theater, rock-face tombs, colonnaded street and other rock-cut wonders.
Afterward, return to Eilat by coach, stopping briefly to see beautiful Wadi Rum on route. Arrive at Eilat Airport and fly back to Tel Aviv where your experience ends at the airport.
Petra trip was one of my best tour so far . It was a long day , but full of pleasure. Be prepared for a long walk through the Canyon where you get very dusty. That doesn't matter , the trip is worth every penny . I can not forget it !
The day trip to Petra from Tel Aviv was fantastic! Petra is one of the seven wonders of the world. The tour was extremely well run and the guide and drivers were outstanding. It is a long day but well worth it.

My wife, daughter and I did a 2 day tour which if you ask you can do. Second day is on your own as is a hotel for that night and you return with the tour for that day.. The one day tour is a hard day leaving Tel Aviv at round 5:30am and returning late that same night. You could possibly do the trip on your own but the border crossing was all very smooth with our guide. All in all very good trip with all things going as planned. The one day tour gives you about 3 to4 hours in Petra which may be OK for some. .
Absolutely amazing! Thank you!!!!
