Petra Tour Description

Mantis Tours is a reputable local tour operator that is specialized in Petra tours. Our Petra tour from Eilat departs daily, usually in very small groups. So, it is recommended to book your Petra tour in advance.

We will pick you up from your accommodation in Eilat (we pick-up from all the hotels and airbnbs in Eilat) at 07:30am, and take you to Arava border crossing.

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

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 professional Jordanian English-speaking guide (guides in other languages are also available) who will take you to your Petra Tour.
