Eilat's border with Jordan and the friendly relationship enjoyed by the 2 countries, makes it the key location for beginning & ending tours to Petra.
Depart Eilat early morning travelling along the Rift Valley to the Arava border where you will enter into the Kingdom of Jordan.
After meeting the Jordanian guide, the coach starts its ascent up the Edumea mountains and then travels north
along the mountain chain till Wadi Musa, winding around till the entrance of Petra.
At Petra,journey by foot, through the narrow Siq till the Treasury, the most impressive site and trademark of Petra.Continue on to explore the theatres, houses, tombs and temples, still intact - a tribute to the Nabatean work, whereby Petra thrived.
A buffet lunch in the canyon, gives a chance to relax and absorb the vastness & beauty of the mountain carvings - man's work intertwining with nature. (Lunch may be served near the visitor centre or on the main street in Wadi Musa)
Return to the coach and and start the journey back to Eilat, stopping in Aquaba (time permitting), for a short city tour.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
