From Eilat: 2-Day Petra & Wadi Rum Tour with Camp Stay

3. From Eilat: 2-Day Petra & Wadi Rum Tour with Camp Stay

Petra is the most famous tourist site in Jordan today. Petra was once occupied by the Nabateans, and almost everything in Petra was constructed by them. Visiting Petra, you'll be able to see over 800 objects, including the famous treasury, temples, mourning houses, caves, and more. Wadi Rum is everything you'd expect of a quintessential desert: extreme in heat in the summer and freezing temperatures in the winter. It is violent and moody as the sun slices through the chiseled canyons at dawn or melts the division between rock and sand at dusk. It is exacting on the Bedouin who live in it and vengeful on those who ignore the dangers it presents. Experience its power and beauty with your expert guide. Your tour will begin with a pick up from your hotel in Eilat at 08:30 AM. After crossing the Arava border, you will drive to Wadi Musa Petra and tour the site. After the tour, you will eat lunch in Petra and drive to Wadi Rum and stay overnight at an authentic Bedouin camp. Along the way, you will learn all about the Nabataeans, their history, their art, gods, and the Bedouin way of life. Upgrade your experience in the desert to a 4-star tent with a private bathroom which includes a shower and a toilet in the tent.

Nádherný výlet na krásná místa! Ačkoliv se nám postupně věnovalo několik lidí, organizace fungovala na jedničku. Obzvláštní pochvalu si zaslouží náš průvodce po Petře a celý první den. Oproti údajům v nabídce byla v ceně i skvělá večeře první večer ve stanovém táboře. Maximální spokojenost.

Alex is a cool Jew, he is super open minded and explained us not only the natural things about the tour but also any other questions we had on their culture. 100% recommended !

It was absolutely perfect! 2 days of total wonder! Our guide Neezar was really great, we learned a lot of things and we were amazed! it's a must!

Both my two kids and I felt safe and the help and guidance from the guides were really nice. From Marie

So beautiful, so much fun, and Alec was a great guide.
