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 other companies are often driven by local youngsters and spend a maximum of 4 hours touring the Rum itself.
Private tours to Petra from Jerusalem or Tel Aviv: the Monastery
One day Petra tour From Eilat, Tel Aviv or Jerusalem
Since there is so much to see in Petra it is important we make good use of our time. The day before your tour, your passport details are sent to the border for the Visa lists, this saves us valuable time at the border crossing. You are collected around 7.00 to ensure we are amongst the first to arrive at the border crossing. Our staff will guide you efficiently through the border procedures, as you cross to Jordan your tour guide and tour staff will meet you. Here your Jordanian guide will take care of the border procedures and once the visas are issued we are on our way to Petra

We encourage visitors of the overnight tour to Petra to spend an additional night in Aqaba before their tour. Apart from the $60 savings at Petra, people staying two nights also get the $60 visa for free. On top of that hotels in Aqaba are cheaper than those in Eilat and the later morning pickup times mean guests get to enjoy breakfast in their hotel before the tour begins.
1.5 day tour to Petra & Wadi Rum
Day two is a full day touring Petra independently or with a local Bedouin scout (no guide); Our staff take you from your accommodation back to Petra and you spend the day exploring yet more of the major sites, you may choose to get a closer look at the Royal Tombs and the archeological ruins on the lower grounds, or for the more energetic the 'High Places' of El Deir (Monastery) and the High Place of Sacrifice are particularly popular, you should be aware that to cover both of these high sites on a single day requires an early start and a high level of physical fitness as each one requires a good uphill hiking ability and for most people one 'high place' is enough on a single day. Please advise our office in advance if you wish to see both sites on the same day so we can prepare the early transportation. Lunch is again included. And by afternoon you meet up with our tour staff and join the one day tour for the drive back to Eilat. The cost of a local scout to lead you on your route on the second day is $88 inclusive for the whole group. The local scout is generally a young person from the local village with limited English. Their role is simply to accompany the visitor and lead the way to the requested sites, don't expect a local scout to offer guide services or briefings about the places visited, he's just there to keep you on the right track. More details of our two day Petra tour options are available on request.
2 days tour of Petra & Wadi Rum
Two Day Petra: With Monastery, the high place of sacrifice and Aaron's Tomb
This breathtaking tour is for experienced hikers only and covers some of the most incredible scenery and mountain trails in the Petra area.
The first day is spent with the one day tour and when the tour group heads back to Eilat with the guide you continue on to explore independently more of Petra's highlights including a hike up to the 'High Place of Sacrifice' with or without a local scout to lead the way ($80). After exploring Petra you head back to our office near Petra's entrance and are driven to a local hotel by one of our staff.
Day Two; Beginning with a tour of 'Little Petra' we then head over to a dramatic hiking trail that leads us over a stunning mountain trail that leads us to the Monastery along a rarely trodden but fabulous mountain route. We descend from the Monastery into Petra where we board a local Bedouin 4x4 pick-up for the off-road drive to Mount Aaron. We leave the vehicle where the jeep trail ends and begin the half hour ascent to its summit on foot. On the mountain peak we find Aaron's shrine and enjoy the astonishing panoramic views from the summit. From here we head down and make our way to Petra's entrance for the return journey to Eilat.
Additional cost for this tour $190 inclusive up to 3 participants 4 people and more $65 each. $80 supplement for Bedouin scout on the first day, if required.

Please be advised that the issue of the animal handlers in Petra is entirely out of our hands and therefore we cannot accept any responsibility for the services they provide. Unfortunately, based on a lot of experience, we must advise you to avoid using them if you possibly can. We hope that very soon we will be able to update this page without these negative points but for now, we cannot stress strongly enough our stance against using any animal transportation services in Petra.
