Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Dead Sea Hotel - Petra Visit - Dead Sea Hotel    

07:00 your driver will pick you from the Dead Sea hotel (Jordan) lobby, holding a sign in your name. Start your day tour with a 3 hours' drive to Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Petra was first established around the 6th century B.C. by the Nabataean Arabs, a nomadic tribe who settled in the area and laid the foundation of a commercial empire that extended into Syria. Meet your local guide and walk to the 1.2 km long, narrow canyon, the so-called Siq, with its colourful sandstone. At the end of the Siq you will be rewarded with a view of the most beautiful monument: the Treasury. Continue via the Street of Facades to the Royal Tombs and Pharaoh's Castle. After around 2 hours the guide says farewell to you at the restaurant area. You have free time to explore Petra on your own. The young at heart for instance have the chance to climb the 800 stairs to the 45 meters high Monastery El Deir. Return to the main gate. Your driver awaits you and takes you back to your hotel at the Dead Sea.
