Petra is an ancient Nabatean city famous for its burial palaces carved into the sandstone of the Red Mountains, hence the Hebrew name "Red Rock". The city was the sprouting capital and was chosen in 2007 as one of the seven new wonders of the world. Petra is located in southern Jordan, about 100 km north of Eilat. It is also called the "pink city" by the local residents due to the shade of the rock.

We arrive at Petra’s visitor’s center mid-morning leading to the Siq canyon which is the main entrance to Petra and one of Petra’s most impressive sights. The walk through the Siq takes approximately 1/2 hour ending with the breathtaking experience of first stepping into Petra. Considered one of the wonders of the world, Petra is an archaeological, anthropological and geological phenomenon.
Your guide will share the legends, truths and myths of this incredible city with you. We explore all the major sites and ruins en route. The walk through Petra is made easy by the endless sights and fascinating facts, all of which bring to life a history as colorful as the sandstone rock from which it was carved.
Having explored the highlights of Petra, we walk back to the entrance; participants may choose to hire the services of the local donkey, camel and carriage drivers for this final part of the tour. Following the tour we have a late but hearty buffet lunch, then rejoin our mini-bus for the return journey to Eilat, arriving by evening at Eilat airport / Eilat hotels.

We collect from most of the hotels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as well as from the major hotels in Netanya and Herzliya. Simply select your hotel from the list of hotels while registering for the desired tour and wait in the hotel lobby at the time indicated. The driver will pick you up from the hotel lobby.
Group tours depart from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Herzliya and Netanya. If your hotel is in one of these cities but is not on the list, please contact us by email and we will provide the nearest pick up location with directions.
Most tours are conducted in English as the main language, and in an additional language such as Spanish, French, German and Russian. You can find your desired language while registering for the tour. On some of the tours with languages other than English the prices may change. In addition, for each tour you can find an organized table detailing the days the tour is operated and in which languages.
Yes. You can be picked up and dropped off by advance notification from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Netanya and Herzliya. When registering fill in your desired pick up and drop off locations in the appropriate boxes.
Yes. The cost increases because the tour prices are based on pick-up and drop off in the same location. If there is a change in the drop off location, the tour price changes. However, in most cases the cost will be lower than that of a taxi between cities. An excellent option for saving time on transfers.
You can take one suitcase with you on business class tours and up to 2 suitcases on economy class tours. Please coordinate the number of suitcases you intend brining with the office by using the special comments box. It should be noted that we attend to the safety of your belongings but cannot take responsibility for them.
The difference is in the number of participants on the tour. The business class is a minibus with maximum 19 seats and economy class is a bus with maximum 50 seats. The tour route and languages are identical for both.
Good question. The benefits of private tours are a free and complete choice of the sites, hotels, duration of the trip and more. The benefits of groups tours are mainly financial - sharing with other passengers allows travel at lower prices, there are a variety of tours available daily, and you can save on transfers when moving from city to city (for example, you can start the day at check-out from the hotel in Tel Aviv and end at check-in to the hotel in Jerusalem), and most group tours guarantee departure from 2 passengers.
