From Jerusalem: Petra 2-Day Tour w/ Meals

1. From Jerusalem: Petra 2-Day Tour w/ Meals

Our two fully-packed days begin in Jerusalem, as we head toward the Jordanian border. We cross at the King Hussein / Allenby border, and enter Jordan, driving through the Judean desert for about an hour. We continue towards Madaba, an ancient jordanian city, and go up to the viewpoint of Mount Nebo. Then we will have lunch. From here we will go to a Bedouin camp near Petra where you will enjoy Bedouin hospitality, including an Arab-style dinner and a comfortable bed for the night. Before going to sleep, sit beneath the clear desert skies and stargaze, as you drink a cup of delicious Bedouin tea.. On the second day we will tour Petra. One of the seven wonders of the world, and Jordan’s most treasured attraction, Petra is an unforgettable place. It was carved into the red rocks of the soaring cliffs in the early 1st century as the tomb of a Nabataean king, and was hidden under sand for centuries before recently becoming accessible again. We will enter through the Siq, a narrow gorge, and tour the Treasury and Amphitheater with our guide who will explain the sites and history as you marvel at the beauty of each structure. Then you will have free time to continue individually as you wish: climb to the Royal Tombs, walk down the Roman Cardo, hike up to the Monastery, and explore the different sites. We will meet up for lunch in Wadi Musa before returning back to Jerusalem via the Allenby border crossing.

What people are saying about Madaba

Our guide Abdullah made this trip excellent. The first day we crossed the border and headed south. Stopped to see the Crusaders castle. When we arrived to the Bedouin camp, it was beautiful abd dinner was excellent. We asked and got to go to Petra by night which was beautiful. The next day we did the sunrise over Petra and then all day at Petra. This is definitely the trip you want to book. Excellent two days. Abdullah was the best guide. Super patient with any requests we had and very knowledgeable. Petra is miles of walking. I would recommend sturdy shoes, not sandals. We rode donkeys and horses there. I wore jeans under my dress. Very beneficial. There is also an ATM at Petra entrance. (BE AWARE...when on the Israel border and exchanging your money to dinar, it's awful. I gave $140 usd. Was supposed to get back $100 dinar. They gave me 84. You don't have to change here. There's an immediate stop after the border and they have an ATM. Just use that. 5 dinar charge but better than exc

I am really impressed in general of Jordan, when you see pictures of Petra you do not imagine the greatness of that place. They took very good care of us from the moment we arrived at the meeting point, they transferred us to the Alenmy border, which is slow. They received us at the end of the migration process in Israel and took us to the Jordanian side to pass migration and it is easy and fast. The guide Majmud knows how to do his job, we made two very interesting visits and we traveled to reach the Bedouin camp, the place is very nice, clean and tidy, they take good care of you and the food is very good, the bathrooms are common but they are kept clean . The return is a bit long but it is worth the experience.

Informative guide and good food. Accomodation was simple but clean. The separate bathroom/shower area was also clean. Petra was amazing but the 4.5 hours there was a bit too short for me. There is so much to see that 6-8 hours at the site or even better, 2 separate days at the site would be even better. Also Abraham tours was a bit disorganized on our return to Israel and we had to wait about an hour at the border for them to get an additional bus to us as their original plan of combining two tours didn't quite work out. Having said that they did rectify the situation pretty quickly.

Ibrahim Al Sammak is absolutely fantastic! He was an excellent driver and went above and beyond to ensure I had to best time. He was flexible and always made sure I had enough food and water. He shared great knowledge of Jordan with me! I couldn’t recommend him more, he most definitely made the trip amazing!

Mr. Walid is an excellent gentleman. He was very passionate in showing us everything we are interested in seeing. We are very fortunate to have such a caring and helpful person taking us around on this tour.
