Full description
After an early pickup from your hotel in Jerusalem at 4:45 AM, head to the Ben Gurion Sde Dov Airport for your 6:40 AM flight to Eilat. Upon arrival, at the Eilat’s Ramon International Airport, catch the shuttle bus to Eilat Central Bus Station. Meet the professional crew who will drive you to the Arava border between Israel and Jordan.

Pass through border control and customs at 8:45 AM. This could take up to an hour. On the Jordan side of the border, transfer to a new model air-conditioned car/van/bus and head towards Petra. The transport time is approximately 2.5 hours, on a vast and comfortable highway.

After traveling along the beautiful scenic route of the mountainside, arrive at Petra’s historical site, and see why it has been deemed one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. At 11:30 AM, begin your guided tour of the site at the entrance. Included in your package is an optional horseback ride for the first 200 meters of the route. (Tipping the carrier is required, between $2-5 at your discretion.)

At 3:30 PM, enjoy lunch at a local authentic restaurant. On the trip back to the border, stop at a few observation points so you can enjoy the beautiful landscape of desert Wadi Rum. You’ll be dropped off back at the Eilat Central Bus Station at 19:00, with plenty of time to catch the shuttle back for your 8:55 PM flight from the Ramon Airport to Ben Guiron.

Your driver will meet you in the Ben Gurion Airport and drive you back to your hotel in Jerusalem.
