Full description
Day 1: After an early departure from Eilat and crossing into Jordan, travel 2-3 hours along the scenic mountain route and through the desert to Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World – briefly stopping for an overview.

Pass the Obelisks in front of the cave tomb, then enter the narrow, 1,200 meter long canyon, the Siq, with an option to ride for the first few hundred meters. Walk through a gorge with the towering red stone on either side and marvel at the incredible sites carved into the red mountain.
The Deir (temple) will dwarf over you, forty meters high with columns reaching more than two storeys tall. See the Roman theater and its uniquely designed tombs, along with the sacrificial altar. Then, after dinner in Petra you will have a free evening. 

Day 2: In the morning spend free time exploring Petra on your own and enjoy the Bedouin market. Begin the return journey after lunch, and stop at a number of observation points to enjoy scenic views of the desert landscape and of Wadi Rum, before crossing to Eilat.
