How much costs a tour to Petra from Tel Aviv?

The price of an one day tour to Petra from Tel Aviv is $200 per person (not including the border fees and the visa fees) plus 112 NIS (about $35) for a round trip by Egged bus from Tel Aviv to Eilat and back. We will pick you up from Eilat central bus station, and drop you off back at Eilat central bus station.

Another option is to book a Petra Tour from Tel Aviv for $300 per person (not including the border fees and the visa fees) from your hotel in Tel Aviv or from some online agency, without knowing which is the tour operator that will actually operate the tour. You’ll take a taxi in the middle of the night from your hotel in Tel Aviv to a meeting point in Tel Aviv, where you’ll wait for your transfer bus. you will spend about 4.5 hours in a drive from Tel Aviv to Eilat, about 1.5 hours in crossing the border and 2 hours drive from the border to Petra. You will have about 2 hours in Petra, and than return back to Tel Aviv through Eilat spending about another 6.5 hours in a bus (not including the time at the border crossing and the waiting time), arriving to Tel Aviv late in night, and then find a taxi that will take you from the dropping point in Tel Aviv back to your hotel in Tel-Aviv.

Both options don’t look very appealing. Although, the first option is cheaper, and at least you will know with which tour operator you travel.
