Overview
A magical day tour in Petra. Choose any date and enjoy a beautiful tour to Petra with pro guides. Pickup/drop off from Eilat, departures every day. Maximum 25 travelers per guide.
Highlights
  • Eilat to Petra day trip with lunch and stops at Wadi Rum and Aqaba
  • Visit Petra without spending the night in Jordan
  • Cross the desert in a climate-controlled vehicle 
  • Guided tour of Petra with optional horseback ride
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Eilat hotel for a group trip to the Arava Border Crossing in a climate-controlled vehicle; border crossing times vary and are beyond the control of the tour operator. When you reach Jordan, transfer into another climate-controlled vehicle and enjoy views of the low desert hills during the trip to Petra. Upon arrival, enter the UNESCO Site through the Siq, walking or riding a horse along the narrow path. Take in Petra highlights, from the soaring Treasury to rock-cut tombs, and then sample Jordanian cuisine at a restaurant before the return trip to Aqaba. While crossing the desert, stop to see the dramatic cliffs of Wadi Rum, and, if time allows, pause for a tour of Aqaba, Jordan’s bustling Red Sea port. After crossing back into Israel, the day concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

In my opinion, you should have one day free between those two tours. The Petra tour is a bit exhausting and you will need to rest after that.
