Description

Your journey into Jordan's past starts with a picturesque two-hour drive, accompanied by your guide, through the arid desert to Petra. Your walking tour covers around five to six miles, so wear comfortable shoes, and make sure you have plenty of sunscreen and a long-sleeved top. Stroll through a narrow gorge call the 'Siq', which is the entrance to Petra. Carved in vivid red sand stone, this ancient city boasts numerous monuments including the Khazneh, a tomb carved into the cliff face, the 3,000-seater Roman Theater, and the Royal Tombs, which are carved into the face of Jebel Khubtha, a sandstone mountain. Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch served at a nearby restaurant, after which you will have free time to browse for gifts before boarding the bus for the scenic journey back to Aqaba.
