Our 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 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.

Notice that on our Petra private tours (or if you choose our two days Petra tours) you will be able to visit also the Monastery (Al Deir), which is the most impressive monument of 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 the walking tour in Petra, we will go to a superior local authentic restaurant, which is located not far from the entrance to Petra, where you will have a buffet lunch (included in the price).
