For centuries it was a lost city until in the 19th Century the ancient city of Petra was discovered by Europeans. Discover all the historic secrets of this hidden corner of Jordan.
Petra Full Day Plane Trip
We will collect you from your hotel in Tel Aviv and then head to Ben Gurion airport on the outskirts of the city. After a flight of just one hour, we will arrive at Eilat Airport in the south of Israel. From there, we take a bus to the iconic archeological site of Petra located in Jordan.
After a road trip of around two hours, we will reach the famous ruins. During our guided tour of Petra, we will learn all about the history of this ancient city. The remains lay forgotten in the heart of the desert until it was rediscovered by the Europeans in the 19th Century by Swiss adventurer Jean Louis Burckhardt.
We will also encounter the Royal Tombs and the magnificent Al-Khazneh (The Treasury) which you will recognize from several major Hollywood films. One of the most famous explorers on the silver screen had adventures here. Can you guess who this character is?
When the tour of Petra has finished, we will regain our strength with a delicious local lunch in the surrounding of the site. The menu includes regional specialties for you to try.
After eating, we will return to Eilat Airport to catch a return flight to Ben Gurion airport. From there, we will finally take you back to the different hotels around Tel Aviv.
