Excursion overview

We will pick you up with our private AC mini van from your hotel in Dahab at 5:00am.

We will drive to Petra by bus for approx. 2 hours, where our 2-3 hour guided tour will begin.

We enter Petra on foot, though the Siq, a narrow, winding gorge over 1 kilometer in length. We visit the Great Treasury (Al-Khazneh Farun), the Roman Theatre, the Royal Tombs (the Rainbow Tomb is a must for photographers) as well as hundreds of monuments, tricliniums and obelisks, all carved from the multi-shaded rose red sandstone. A walk through the colonnade of Roman Byzantine Petra brings us to the city centre. Afterward, we continue our tour to the hill of Al-Habis (crowned with a crusader-era fort) for a breathtaking panoramic view of deep gullies and uniquely colored rock formations.

After sightseeing Petra a late lunch buffet will be served at the Movenpick hotel at the entrance to the site

Afterward we will drive back to Aqaba. We offer you an hour free time for shopping before taking the ferry back to Taba at 7:30pm. From Taba you will be transffered back to your hotel in Dahab.

    So I went on the 1 day tour to Petra. It was....amazing!!! They provided me with a packed breakfast which was a really nice touch. The people at penguin organized transport to nuewieba where we caught the ferry into Jordan. The tour guide was very funny spoke very good english and was very informative. After walking around Petra for 4 hours which was amazing, we went for a lunch at a restaurant..(try the arabic food..the baba ganoush and the other mezze was lovely) after that we caught the ferry back and transport back to penguin. I would like to thank everyone involved, particularly the people at Dahabexcursions as the trip was very well planned, and the people were very helpful and informative in booking the trip. Thanks guys!!!
