Border procedures at the Yitzhak Rabin border crossing at Arava assisted by our representative. Meeting the Jordanian tour guide. Traveling to Petra via Wadi Yatam,
driving through some enchanted landscapes. A short stop to freshen up. Two hours from the beginning of the trip we will arrive in Petra, enter the Petra nature reserve and a take a short horse ride (those who wish to do so). Petra, the Nabatean capital, is carved into the rock, and is situated in the far end of Wadi Musa. The road leading there meanders through the narrow, deep, winding and breathtaking Siq (the shaft) at the end of which the striking splendor of the burial shrine Al Khazneh (the treasury) is revealed to us. We will stop to take pictures and then arrive at our ultimate destination, the ancient and picturesque city of Petra. We will visit the theater, the façade, the Winged Lions Temple which is still under excavation and more… At noon we will have lunch at a nice restaurant.
and after we drive back south to Wadi Rum:
Wadi Rum, situated in the southern part of Jordan, is regarded by many as one of the most beautiful desert landscapes in the world. The sandstones and granite rocks make up this vast valley, the largest in the Hashemite kingdom. Wadi Rum has also been made famous by Lawrence of Arabia, who wrote his book "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" during his stay there. (It is also the site where the film "Lawrence of Arabia" was made).
We will take a two hour jeep ride into the sunset and through the imposing landscape of the desert and the magnificent colors of the mountains, all of which are sure to be an outstanding experience for all our tourists. In the course of the jeep ride in the wadi we will make several stops at some unique sites, such as the Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
we leave the desert and drive back to Aqaba, and if we have time, we will tour the city. Close to 7 pm we will cross the border back into Israel.
