This extended three day tour to Petra and Wadi Rum starting and ending in Eilat gives you two days at the Wonder of the World, Petra, and a jeep safari at Wadi Rum, one of the most spectacular desert landscapes of the world. Starting in Eilat, you’ll cross into Jordan and travel north along the Desert Highway. Reaching Petra, you’ll experience a fully guided tour of this impressive site, followed by lunch.
