Petra Plane Trip
We will collect you from your hotel in Jerusalem at 5 am and head to Sde Dov Airport, situated in the outskirts of Tel Aviv.
After a brief 1-hour flight, we will land at Eilat Airport located in the south of Israel. From there we will take the bus to one of the most famous archeological sites in Jordan, the ancient city of Petra.
Once we arrive, we will begin our fantastic tour around the site. An English speaking guide will accompany you to the main parts of the ruins. The most iconic sight here is the Al-Khazneh (The Treasury ), carved into the rock face by the ancient Nabataeans people.
Strolling through magnificent Petra canyon, you will also encounter other important remains of the ancient desert city, such as the theatre and the royal tombs. Our professional tour guide will reveal why the Nabateans chose this location to build their city.
