ONE DAY TOUR TO PETRA
WITH HILA MUKDASI & YAEL TWITO
The tour is fully organized and will be managed by Eilat Attractions Company only.
The responsible of the trip and its management is not by Camp Bitnua at all but "Eilat Attractions" company only.
Our tour to Petra from Eilat starts with a Pick up from Isrotel Sport Club Eilat and transfer from Eilat to Arava Border-crossing with the help of our professional crew.
Border passing includes: border control and customs.
This process may take up to 2 hours, so your patience is appreciated.
Transfer from the border to Petra in our newest model air-conditioned vehicles. Transport takes approximately 2-3 hours, passing through a vast and comfortable highway (the "desert way"), following through a scenic route on the mountain side, and arriving at Petra's historical site, known as one of the Seven Wonders Of The World.
The tour of Petra begins at the entrance to the site - fully guided tour of the lost city of Petra including the Siq, Obelisk Tomb, Calligraphy, Treasury and the Theater. Optional in your package is a horseback riding for the first 200 meters of the route. The ride allows you to taste the unique atmosphere of the place (tipping the carrier is required, ranging from $2-$5 at your discretion).
Lunch at a local authentic restaurant.
We recommend having a snack before entering Petra site as sometimes lunch gets late
