What You Can Expect
Travelling in deluxe transportation via the Desert Highway your Petra Day Trip will head to the Hasan Prince Palace for stunning views of the Petra mountains. Remember to bring your camera! From here you will continue into Petra, where you will have 5-6 hours to take in the sights.
The entrance to the city itself is via a long, narrow gulley with impressive 220m (650ft) rock sides called the Siq. Emerging from here you’ll be greeted with the dramatic sight of the Treasury (El-Khazneh) – a majestic, red building, featured in several Hollywood films. While the purpose of the building remains a mystery, its sheer magnificence makes up for any gaps in its history. Standing over 40m tall and carved entirely of solid rock, this is one of the most elegant relics of the ancient world.
Visit Petra’s theatre, tombs, facades and colonnaded street before breaking for a well-deserved late lunch (included in price) at Nabatean’s Tent Rest. You'll have time to shop at the colorful Bedouin bazaars and stop to view Wadi Rum, the famous desert, before your drive back to Eilat (approximately 2.5 hours) to catch your Tel Aviv flight.
Absolutely amazing! Thank you!!!!

Unforgettable site, excellent organization of the tour
Even with the situation in GAZA this trip was well received an very pleasent. Ramsey was very knowlegdable and well prepared
Great trip.long day. But worth it. Flight, pick up and border crossing went smooth. And actual tour was very good and informative.
Due to a change in schedule in my international flight I had to change dates for the Petra Tour just a few data before the actual tour! Viator had an exceptional customer service!
Petra is simply breathtaking!
It was ok...to enter Jordan should be faster, because we lost 90 minutes. Our guide in Jordan was excellent.
Great experience! Definitely a tour that everyone must make once in their lifetime. The guide knew the place like a local and took us to the right places.
Wonderful trip! Just the guy that took care of us in Jordan was extremely hurried, did not really give us insight of what Petra is.... But over all, specially the guy fron Israel was wonderful,
