Daily Tour to Petra – Guaranteed Departure from Eilat and Tel-Aviv
The tour to Petra starts from the pick-up in the morning (from the hotel in Eilat or the airport) and transfer to the Arava Border. After ending all border-formalities we will drive up to Petra through the "Desert Highway" and arrive to the "Rose Red City" - Petra - within 2 hours. We will enter the ancient city of Petra through the famous "Siq" - a narrow natural gorge that made the secret entrance to Petra. At once the valley of Petra will open in front of us, and we will see the famous "Khazane" ("Treasury"). We will visit the most famous monuments of Petra, carved in the red Sandstone and eat a buffet lunch (included) nearby, before we will return to our bus and leave Petra.
