PETRA & WADI RUM TOUR FROM TEL AVIV WITH BUS, 2 DAYS
Join us on a two-day tour from Tel Aviv that takes you through stunning Middle Eastern landscapes, the world-famous city of Petra – one of the Seven New Wonders of the World – and an exciting jeep safari through Wadi Rum.
Begin your journey with a southward drive in our advanced bus before crossing the border into the Kingdom of Jordan. Take a stroll through Aqaba’s charming streets to the Mamluk Castle – an Ottoman fortress overlooking the border nexus of Aqaba Bay.
Next, brace yourself for a thrilling jeep tour of Wadi Rum, a unique desert wilderness with a moon-like landscape that offers a chance to capture some incredible photos. Several Star Wars movies were filmed here, and you’ll soon understand why.
After an authentic yet indulgent night in a genuine Bedouin camp, we’ll head to Petra. This stunning city was carved out of the red-hued desert cliffs 2,300 years ago, and its shrines and majestic mausoleums await you – starting with the renowned Petra Treasury. Discover the enigmatic Djinn Blocks, explore the ancient Royal Tombs, learn about Nabatean history at the Petra Theater, and capture stunning pictures of this UNESCO world heritage site.
Begin your adventure in Aqaba, strolling through the vibrant and colorful alleys of the city. Marvel at the beauty of the 16th-century Mamluk Castle, which offers a breathtaking panoramic view of four countries in one glance – Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.
Next, climb aboard a sturdy Jeep for an unforgettable journey through the awe-inspiring Wadi Rum desert wilderness, also known as the “Valley of the Moon.” With its otherworldly landscape, it’s no wonder that this location has been featured in films such as “The Rise of Skywalker,” “Rogue One,” and “Lawrence of Arabia.” Prepare to be amazed as you explore this remarkable terrain and its fascinating geological formations, including the Seven Pillars of Wisdom and Um Furth Arch.
As the sun begins to set, be sure to capture the magical Wadi Rum sunset before the end of your jeep safari. This is an experience you won’t soon forget.
