Our Petra and Wadi Rum 3 day tour from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem is designed for those who want to linger exploring the world famous Petra in depth and experience the wonder of the stunning red desert of Wadi Rum. Departing from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, you will make your way through the Negev Desert to Eilat, and cross into Jordan aided by our assistants. The first day you will have time to explore Aqaba and its bustling markets and later in the day check into your accommodation at the Bedouin Camp in Wadi Rum. This Jordan experience would not be complete without a night in the middle of the desert, at a Bedouin Camp, and a Jeep tour in the “Valley of the Moon” during sunset. Enjoy a traditional Bedouin feast for dinner. The following day is for exploring Petra with a licensed guide, to visit the highlights and learn about the history and geography of the ‘Rose Red City’. On the third day, you will have the chance to explore at leisure, reaching every corner of this huge, unique site, including the famous Monastery. Return is to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.
** On Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays this tours allows you to join “Petra by night”, the candlelight show in Petra (enquire for more information) **
