Our Petra and Wadi Rum tour from Aqaba is available daily with guaranteed departures, providing the ultimate two-day experience visiting Jordan’s two greatest highlights. The ‘forgotten city of Petra’ is one of the 7 Wonders of the World, unrivalled worldwide and never failing to impress visitors new and old. Wadi Rum is the unique reddish desert that has been termed the ‘valley of the moon’. Our Petra and Wadi Rum tour from Aqaba combines these two amazing sites with an overnight stay in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum for an added experience, to create a trip that will remain with you forever.
As border operating hours are currently reduced, the order of the tour will be slightly changed. Petra will be visited on Day 1, followed by an overnight in Wadi Rum, and Wadi Rum jeep safari on Day 2. The tour will end in Aqaba at 15:00 on Day 2.
