Full description
Start your journey to Petra with pickup from Sharm El Sheikh in a modern air-conditioned vehicle between 1:30 AM and 2:00 AM. Travel to the border crossing at Taba, arriving at approximately 6:00 AM. Be met and assisted at the border, and once in Jordan, travel to the port of Aqaba. Hop on the ferry and sail directly towards Jordan’s "Rose City", known worldwide as Petra.

Explore the lost city of the Nabataeans, which was carved into the mountains many centuries ago. Choose between walking or riding a camel to the Siq (canyon) which is a natural crack in the rocks. Follow the trail which leads to the city and discover the beautiful carvings of statues, idols, and various structures.

At the end of the canyon, you will be able to see the famous “Al Khazneh” which has been standing for more than 2000 years. See the Roman theater, the royal tombs, the Roman collonaded street, and Qasr al-Bent with a guide. After discovering the many beautiful sights of Petra, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant before travelling back to the port of Aqaba to take the cruise back to Taba. Finally, upon arrival in Sharm El Sheikh, be transferred back to your hotel at around 11:00 PM.
