PETRA & WADI RUM TOUR FROM EILAT, 2 DAYS
Experience the best of Jordan with this Petra and Wadi Rum 2-day tour from Eilat, featuring exotic Middle Eastern landscapes, the world-renowned city of Petra, and an exhilarating jeep safari through the stunning Wadi Rum desert.
Start your adventure with a pick-up from Eilat and a swift border crossing into the Kingdom of Jordan. Visit Mamluk Castle, a fort that overlooks the Aqaba Bay border nexus before embarking on an exciting jeep tour of Wadi Rum, a distinct desert wilderness with a landscape that resembles the moon’s surface. You will have plenty of opportunities to capture some amazing photos, as this is the place where several Star Wars movies were filmed.
Spend the night in an authentic Bedouin camp for an immersive cultural experience before heading to Petra. Carved out of the red-hued desert cliffs 2,300 years ago, Petra’s temples and tombs are a true wonder. Your first stop will be the famous Petra Treasury, an intricately decorated structure that locals believe holds a hidden treasure.
Explore the mysterious Djinn Blocks and the unique Obelisk Tomb, walk in the footsteps of kings to the Royal Tombs, and take incredible shots of the Nabatean Theater from between the impressive columns. After an unforgettable day in Petra, you will depart back to Eilat with memories to last a lifetime.
Begin your journey in the vibrant city of Aqaba, strolling through its charming and colorful alleys before visiting the imposing 16th-century Mamluk Castle. From this impressive fortress, you will be treated to a breathtaking panoramic view of four countries – Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia – all visible in a single glance.
Embark on an exhilarating Jeep tour through the otherworldly landscape of Wadi Rum, also known as the “Valley of the Moon.” With its unique rock formations and dramatic vistas, you will feel as if you’ve stepped onto the set of a Star Wars movie.
