Our Petra & Wadi Rum Tour – 2 Days from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem will take you through the awe-inspiring 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 make your way through the inspiring Negev Desert in Israel towards the southernmost city of Israel, Eilat. From Eilat, you will transfer over the Jordanian border to the resort city of Aqaba.
You will have time to explore the city of Aqaba before heading to the Mars-like Wadi Rum desert, where home for the night will be 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 nighttime, you’ll relish in a traditional Bedouin meal, including Bedouin barbeque, salads, and bread, under the infamous star-studded Jordanian sky.
In the morning, you’ll head further into the desert towards the amazing rose 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. A 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 and settle in for the drive back to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem with tired feet and a head full of memories. This tour is also available beginning in Eilat for those staying in Israel’s southern city.
