Just 1.5 hours travel from the border or the port of Aqaba to reach one of the most spectacular sites in the world – the rose-red city of Petra. Enjoy a guided tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and still have plenty of time to continue exploring on your own. Duration of tour: 10 hours (approx.).
Your English speaking driver will meet you at the dock and transfer you by an air-conditioned vehicle for about 1.5 hours to the rose red city of Petra, a must-see in the Middle East. With your English speaking guide walk through the 1.2km-long Siq to reach the city of Petra passing the remains of Nabataean shrines, water channels, wall carvings and some of the original paving stones. See the magnificent Treasury as you exit the Siq, investigate the Street of Facades, the Theatre, Royal Tombs, Colonnaded Street, Byzantine Church, Winged Lion’s Temple, Qasr al Bint, and the Petra Museum. Climb to the Monastery and/or High Place of Sacrifice on your own. At a designated time (based on your ship’s departure) meet your driver for the return journey to Aqaba. Note: The tour in Petra requires considerable walking on uneven ground. A limited number of carriages can be hired from the entrance gates – prices to be negotiated direct with the owners.
