Full description
Discover the famous archaeological site in Jordan's southwestern desert on a day trip to Petra from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. After being picked up from the meeting point in Jerusalem, climb into a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle with your professional guide. Transfer to the Aravah border where you will receive assistance entering the country of Jordan.

Set off for Petra, an ancient monument renowned for its charm and cultural heritage. Petra marks the achievement of an impressive civilization, the Nabataean Arabs, who perfectly carved the city into its mountains. It has now been declared to be one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Learn about how Petra's name comes from the wonderful color of the rock also known as the rose-red city, from which many of the city's structures were carved. Enjoy a full guided tour through the monument with entrance fees and a guide included.
