About This Tour

Our one day tour to Petra with an overnight in Aqaba is an amazing way to experience Jordan. Our tours depart every day and offer travelers the option to stay in Aqaba for 1 or 2 nights. Picking you up in Eilat and crossing the border the day before your tour to Petra, you’ll stay overnight in a hotel in the Jordanian resort city of Aqaba. The next morning you’ll depart on your adventure to Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. At Petra, you’ll enjoy a comprehensive tour, including all the major highlights and photo opportunities. It’ll be a lot to take in, but many of our guests reflect on this day as one of their greatest travel experiences ever! After enjoying an authentic Jordanian lunch, you’ll head back for a second overnight in Aqaba if requested, or if not, cross back to Eilat in the evening, with memories to last a lifetime. If you choose to stay for 1 night, you can do this before or after your visit to Petra. If you choose to stay for 2 nights, both before and after Petra, you will save the cost of the Jordanian visa.

You may choose to start the tour in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv at an extra cost. If you want the option with 2 nights in Aqaba, please send us an email at info@touristisrael.com and we will confirm the option for you. Arranging your own stay in Aqaba? Check out this tour.

The Jordanian visa fee of $60 is not required if you stay for 2 or more nights in Jordan. If you choose to spend two nights in Aqaba, the total cost of your tour will be similar to the cost of the one day tour from Eilat.

Important Information

Travel prep

Each of our tours clearly states what is included in the price and what is not. Generally speaking, the listed tour price includes everything except for the border fee and visa fee – this means guiding, transport, and entrance fees are included on all tours. Where applicable, overnight accommodation, flight transfers, and meals are also included. Please read the detailed information on the tour you are booking in order to see exactly what is included.
For tours crossing at the Sheikh Hussein Border in the north – our representative will collect the $65 border fee in cash upon pickup. Our Jordanian representative will collect the $60 visa fee in cash on the Jordanian side of the border (only for those 2-day tours). For tours crossing at the Yitzhak Rabin/Arava Border in the south – our Israel representative will collect the $65 border fee in cash when you arrive at the border. Our Jordanian representative will collect the $60 visa fee in cash on the Jordanian side of the border (only for those on 1 and 2-day tours).
The border crossing process is pretty simple and stress-free. All of our tours from Israel to Petra include border assistance service. More details about the crossing procedure at the Arava Border near Eilat (which the majority of our tours use) can be found here.
You will pay for your tour with a credit card when booking. Payment of visa fees, border fees, and tips must be in cash. You may bring cash and/or credit cards with you for personal needs on your trip.
Everyone traveling on our tours should bring $65 for the border fee. Travelers on 1 or 2 day tours should bring $60 for the visa fee. It is recommended to tip your guide and driver $5. It is also recommended to bring extra cash for souvenirs, food, and other personal needs.
As per our terms & conditions, Petra from Israel reserves the right to change the itinerary at any time. This happens rarely and only to meet travelers’ satisfaction. These changes will be reflected on the website and will be emailed to you in a reminder about your tour the day before departure. Please also note that all times on the itinerary are approximate, as we cannot always account for certain delays, including traffic, weather conditions, and more.
We recommend bringing good walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen, water, and snacks. Warm clothing/a jacket are also recommended for overnight tours and tours during the winter months. We also recommend that you bring extra cash.
Upgrades are subject to availability, so requests must be made in advance. We highly recommend selecting the chalet option when booking your tour, or contact us to arrange it, at least 24 hours in advance of your tour. Chalet upgrades are $120 per chalet ($60 when shared). The Martian tents are $240 per tent ($120 per person when shared) and must be arranged upon booking. Please contact us after completing your booking to confirm your Martian tent upgrade.
Visitors traveling alone on our tours will be charged a single traveler supplement fee of $25/night. If you are staying in the Bedouin camp, you have the option to upgrade to a chalet or Martian tent, both of which you will have to pay the entire price for if you are not sharing it with another traveler.
We use 3-star hotels on all our overnight tours, all of which have a 4 out of 5 or higher score on TripAdvisor. The regular hotel we use at Petra is generally considered to be 4-star. We often change hotels due to seasons and demand, but we are happy to give you an exact hotel name for your trip if you contact us with dates. Some tours include overnights in a Bedouin camp instead of hotels, but you may opt for a hotel instead if you ask in advance to arrange this.

Fees and Visa

Yes. However, the visa fee is waived for those staying more than 48 hours (anyone on our three- and four-day tours).
