Description

Wake up early for an exciting full-day adventure on a spacious tour bus from Tel Aviv, heading towards the breathtaking south of Israel. Watch as the landscape changes colors with the sunrise, and catch a glimpse of the Red Sea and the Riviera of Eilat, Israel's premier resort city, after crossing the Arahav Valley. After arriving at the Israeli-Jordanian border, you'll embark on a 2.5-hour drive through a unique landscape to the lost Nabatean city of Petra, known as one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. Carved into the surrounding red cliffs over 2,300 years ago, many of its impressive temples remain pristine and untouched. Discover the mysterious Djinn Blocks, designed to hold spirits and grant wishes by touching the stone. Take breathtaking photos of the Obelisk Tomb, then follow the colorful, smooth Siq gorge to the renowned Petra Treasury. Here, marvel at the stunning, towering columns and intricate decorations that will leave you in awe. Explore the Royal Tombs and Petra Theater, and discover the numerous shrines, mausoleums, and remnants of a lost civilization. Finally, relax on the long drive back to the drop-off point in Tel Aviv, concluding an unforgettable day. Enjoy a Worry-Free Vacation: Our representatives will meet you and assist with the visa requisition and border crossing - and an expert local tour guide will meet you on the Jordanian side of the border and your adventure will begin.
