Petra Shannon7

An overnight tour to Petra and Wadi Rum which will provide an unforgettable experience to explore what are arguably Jordan’s two most iconic sights. Leaving Eilat, you’ll cross into Jordan, travelling north along the desert highway, to Petra. You’ll enjoy a guided tour of the ‘lost city’ of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, before enjoying an authentic lunch at a local Jordanian restaurant. After lunch, we’ll head south, and stay overnight in the port city of Aqaba (because of the cold desert weather making overnight stays uncomfortable). The following morning, we’ll head out to the desert and explore Wadi Rum with a jeep tour, before heading back to Aqaba for a tour of the city’s markets. The tour will end with a transfer back across the border into Israel, and return to your hotel.
