1. From Eilat: Petra Guided Full-Day Trip with Lunch
Take this fantastic Petra tour from Eilat: A 2.5-hour drive through the exquisite, pristine desert landscape, will bring you to the famous lost city. The Nabataean civilization carved Petra out of red-colored rock cliffs about 2,300 years ago, and its shrines and temples remained untouched: you'll pass by the mysterious Djin blocks, used to house desert spirits; you'll see the beautiful Obelisk Tomb and walk down the colorful Siq gorge all the way to the marvelous Petra Treasury - a massive temple with intricate decorations. Then feel like Indiana Jones in the Petra Royal Tombs, and take awesome pictures in the ancient Nabatean Theater. After 3-4 hours in Petra, you'll ride back to Eilat, taking in more beautiful wilderness views. Enjoy a Worry-Free Vacation: The tour starts with a transfer from Eilat to the Arava border, where our representatives will meet you and assist with the visa requisition and border crossing. Our expert local tour guide will meet you on the Jordanian side of the border and your adventure will begin. Note that a 1-Day Tour of Petra won't leave you with enough time to fully explore this wonderful archeological park. This is why most travelers recommend a 2-Day Tour to Petra, in order to see Al Dayr - the iconic Petra Monastery up on the ridge and visit Qasr Al-Bint Temple and the Great Temple of Petra.
