Why we chose this tour

Our Petra & Wadi Rum Tour - 2 Days from Eilat will transport you to an unearthly world, unlike anything you've experienced before. This tour is perfect for travelers who are hungry for adventure, history, and culture. Journey to places that are beyond your imagination and absorb the dramatic scenery and spectacular colors that surround you. Stay overnight in the Martian-like desert in-between days of exploration.

This tour is currently available starting in Eilat but ending in Aqaba due to the restriction against tourists entering Israel via land borders. Once entry via borders is possible again, return to Israel will resume.


Our Petra & Wadi Rum Tour – 2 Days from Eilat will take you through the captivating Wadi Rum desert to the ancient city of Petra. Petra is Jordan’s top tourist attraction and one of the most impressive archaeological sites in the world. Your tour will start bright and early when you’ll cross the Jordanian border to the resort city of Aqaba.

 

You’ll have time to explore the city of Aqaba before heading to the Mars-like Wadi Rum desert, where you will sleep under the stars at a Bedouin campsite. You’ll be spoiled with authentic Bedouin hospitality that the desert nomadic group is renowned for. As the day cools, you’ll enjoy an exhilarating desert Jeep safari and be spellbound by the otherworldly surroundings. At night, savor a traditional Bedouin meal, a feast of Bedouin barbeque, salads, and bread, under the star-studded Jordanian sky.

 

In the morning, you’ll head further into the desert towards the rose-hued city of Petra. You’ll stop for a view of Mt. Haroun, Aaron’s Tomb, on the way. Arriving in Petra, you’ll enjoy a fully guided tour of one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. An experienced local tour guide is indispensable as you explore the amazing feats of mankind. You’ll pass tombs, temples, and an open-air theater, which were all carved into the red sandstone centuries ago. After your tour, you’ll have free time to explore the archaeological city on your own, with an option to hike to the monastery if you choose.

 

In the late afternoon, you’ll head back to the border where you will again cross with assistance back into Israel, where you’ll be dropped off in Eilat with tired feet and a head full of memories. This tour is also available beginning in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for those staying in Israel’s central cities.
