Full description
Discover the site that UNESCO described as "one of the most precious cultural properties of man's cultural heritage.” One of the 7 New Wonders of the World, Petra was constructed in the 3rd century BC, and encompasses a series of massive temples, tombs, and structures carved into the red desert mountains. There's truly nothing on earth that compares to the immensity, ancient craftsmanship, and sheer beauty of the ruins at Petra.

Your tour begins conveniently with pickup from your hotel in Petra, at which point you’ll be driven directly to the site. After ambling through the vast rock formations that form a canopy above the desert sky, you’ll get your first glimpse of the ancient city. Tour the monolithic treasury, mourning halls, caves, tombs, temples — and more breathtaking sights of this one-of-a-kind locale. 

After your visit concludes and you hit the gift shop, you’ll stop for lunch at a restaurant specializing in local delicacies. After a detour for some more stunning historic sights at Aqaba, you’ll return at around 4:00 PM to your hotel, in perfect time to digest the sights over dinner that evening.
