Petra Day Trip

At 4 am on the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Amman ready for your adventure into the desert in the south of Jordan.

We'll reach Petra between 7:30 and 8 am. This ancient rock-cut city, originally known as Raqmu, was a thriving trading hub and the capital of the Nabataean Kingdom dating back as early as the 5th century BC.

Immerse yourself in the incredible desert scenery on horseback. You'll feel just like Indiana Jones in The Last Crusade! Riding through the narrow gorges that snake between towering rock faces, you'll reach the iconic Treasury or Al Khazneh, the best-known structure in the Petra archaeological complex, an elaborate temple that is believed to have been a royal mausoleum. 

After marveling at its breathtaking interior, you'll walk through the city to the royal tombs, while your guide reveals the history of the Napataen people and the importance of Petra under the Roman Empire.

You'll then take a well-earned break enjoying lunch at one of the local restaurants. At the end of your visit, you'll make the return journey to your hotel in Amman, arriving at 7:30 pm.

Entry to Petra

When making your booking, you'll be able to book a ticket either with or without entry to Petra.
