One day extended private tour to Petra and the Monastery from Eilat – $385

Tour Description:

Mantis Tours is a reputable local tour operator that is specialized in Petra tours. Our private tours to Petra from Eilat are available everyday. Nevertheless, it is recommended to book the tour in advance, in order to assure the availability of a private guide and driver, and for a smooth preparation of the tour.

We will pick you up from your accommodation in Eilat (we pick-up from all the hotels in Eilat, from Eilat airport and from Eilat central bus station) at 07:00am, and take you to Aravah border crossing.

Our representative in Eilat will collect the money for the tour and for the border fees, offer you as a gift fruits of the season, and help you with the border procedures in the Israeli side of the border.

* Your package also includes a free breakfast box (sandwiches, salad, eggs, several kinds of cheese, olives, chocolate snack, juice and mineral water).

Just after crossing the border to Jordan, our Jordanian representative will meet you at the border, help you with the border procedures in the Jordanian side of the border, and take you to your personal Jordanian English-speaking guide (guides in other languages are also available) who will take you to your Petra day trip in a private new model A/C car.

Our private Petra tours starts in a short panoramic tour of the port city Aqaba. From Aqaba we will have about two hours drive to the UNESCO city of Petra, traveling through a scenic route of the “Desert Way”, and stopping on the way in an observation point on the magnificent view of Wadi Rum. During the drive, your specialist guide will give you an in-depth briefing on the history of Jordan and its culture.

* We will provide you free water in the car.

We offer to you an extended tour in Petra until the Basin. Upon arriving to Petra, your guide will give you the entrance tickets to Petra, and we will enter Petra through the Siq (a narrow gorge). Included in your package is an optional horseback riding for the first 600 meters of the site, from the Visitor’s Center until the beginning of the Siq (tipping the handler is required – minimum $3).

On the way to the Siq, we will see the ‘Silica Quarries’, the Jinn Blocks and the ‘Obelisk Tomb’. We will walk through the narrow Siq into the rock-cut city of Petra. Right by the end of the Siq, we will reveal the most famous monument of Petra – the Treasury (Al Khazneh). After visiting the Treasury, we will continue our tour along the impressive Cardo (a Street of Facades) towards the Nabatean Theater. We will see the views of the Royal Tombs, which you will be able to climb on your free time.

We will stop at the Basin for a buffet lunch at a deluxe local authentic restaurant inside the archaeological site of Petra (included in the price), and afterwards we will continue our guided tour to the Monastery (Al Deir), which is the most impressive monument in Petra.

* Those who have difficulty walking can hire a donkey-drawn buggy for a supplement payment to the local people.

On the way back to the Visitor’s Center, you will have an option to ride on horses and camels, and have carriages for extra charge.

After our Petra tours, we will drive back to Aravah border crossing, where our representative in Eilat will wait for you around 19:00 to take you back to your accommodation, and you will also be given a personalized souvenir as a present.
