Meeting at Eilat airport, transfer to Arava border crossing to Jordan, continue to Petra.
We arrive at Petra's visitor's center mid-morning leading to the Siq canyon which is the main entrance to Petra and one of Petra's most impressive sights. The walk through the Siq takes approximately 1/2 hour ending with the breathtaking experience of first stepping into Petra. Considered one of the wonders of the world, Petra is an archaeological, anthropological and geological phenomenon.
Your guide will share the legends, truths and myths of this incredible city with you. We explore all the major sites and ruins en route. The walk through Petra is made easy by the endless sights and fascinating facts, all of which bring to life a history as colorful as the sandstone rock from which it was carved.
Having explored the highlights of Petra, we walk back to the entrance; participants may choose to hire the services of the local donkey, camel and carriage drivers for this final part of the tour. Following the tour we have a late but hearty buffet lunch, then rejoin our vehicle for the return journey to Eilat, arriving by evening at Eilat airport.
