. Desert Eco Tours is the leading operator to Petra and Jordan from Israel. Be discerning, we wont compromise the quality of your tour, be sure you dont.
*Please Note* Entrance fees to Petra rose dramatically to $138. For people spending one night in Jordan the cost will be considerably less. We are recommending clients to consider taking the two day Israel to Petra and Jordan tour (Petra and Wadi Rum or 2 days Petra only), which was always a better option than the one day tour to Petra. The lower cost of the entrance fees for those spending the night in Petra covers a significant part of the difference between the two Petra tours.
People booking tours with us can also take advantage of our very special rates on hotels and domestic flights in Eilat and all of Israel. Our best hotel deals are reserved for tour participants.

Jordan - Petra One Day Tour (Jordan tours) Firstly a little word about why Desert Eco Tours is the number one choice for visitors to Petra and Jordan from Israel. We are Israel's leading tour operator from Israel to Petra and unlike the other companies we do not pool our tours with other operators, all our tours are exclusively Desert Eco Tours. Booking with us means means an early start for getting to and through the border first and avoiding the inevitable delays that the pooled companies must face, this gives our clients an average of one hour more touring Petra. Our permanent Jordanian tour staff are selected by us and operate according to our guidelines. Apart from having the best guides available we also use the services of Jordan's leading tour bus company for maximum comfort on route. On particularly busy days we add additional guides to the tour and divide the participants into smaller groups to ensure a high quality tour experience for everyone. We operate a large selection of tours, many of which run on a daily basis and our experienced staff are dedicated to providing the best possible service to each and every visitor.
On our two day Petra and Wadi Rum tours we spend a whole day exploring the highlights of the spectacular Wadi Rum (8 hours) in new, 4x4, air-conditioned vehicles driven by our local Bedouin English speaking staff. The ancient jeeps commonly used in the Rum by smaller tour operators are often driven by local youngsters and spend a maximum of 4 hours touring the Rum itself.
Petra day trip from Eilat - Israel: Departing daily this tour begins early morning at the Eilat hotels and heads to the border between Eilat and Jordan. We enter Jordan and continue on to Petra.
We arrive at Petra's visitor's center mid-morning. From there we walk 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 before that breathtaking experience of first stepping foot in Petra is upon us. Counted as one of the wonders of the world, Petra is an archaeological, anthropological and geological phenomenon. Your guide will share with you the legends, truths and myths of this incredible city. We explore all the major sites and ruins on the 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 mini-bus for the return journey to Eilat, arriving by evening.

Jordan - Petra and Wadi Rum 2 Day Tour (Jordan tours)
First Day - Departing Eilat with the daily one day tour we are amongst the very first to get to and through the border thus avoiding the lengthy delays that follow. We set off to Petra in plenty of time to take in all the sites of the one day tour route and still have extra time to cover the places that the one day tour doesn't reach. This is an ideal opportunity for people to spend more time touring Petra and take in other major attractions such as the Monastery or the High place of Sacrifice. Our Petra tour guide returns with the one day tour but before he departs he will give you advice on how to spend the rest of the afternoon according to your interests and energy levels. The Monastery is quite a difficult walk up but is the most popular choice for the more energetic visitors. You can explore Petra at your leisure and a short walk from the entrance to the site takes us to our Jordan office nearby, from there you are driven to your hotel or Bedouin Camp.
Second Day- Today we set off bright and early into the magnificent expanses of Wadi Rum. This is where Lawrence of Arabia famously served during the first world war and the epic movie about his adventures was also filmed here. We go off-road into Wadi Rum taking in all the major attractions including the Seven Pillars, Lawrence's Well and the inscriptions of Khaz Ali canyon. To see the very best desert scenery we head away from the tourist traps and go right off the beaten track into the depths of Wadi Rum whose breathtaking scenery is few tourists get to see. We return to the road late afternoon and make our way to Eilat arriving by evening. Tour Price: 2 people- $890, 3 people- $440 per person, 4+ people $425. 6+ people 415 (Incl night in 3* hotel or a nice Bedouin camp for 10$ more p.p.)

Tours are not held back for late participants and although alternative transport is provided for reaching the group in Petra it inevitably impacts the tour experience in a negative way.

There's a array of attractions, lots of restaurants and a huge selection of hotels and accommodations to suit all tastes and budgets.
People booking tours with us can take advantage of our very special rates on hotels and domestic flights in Israel. Our best hotel deals are reserved for tour participants.
