Israel, Petra & Wadi Rum 8 Day Discovery Package

This package is a comprehensive tour of our most popular destinations, providing 8 days of adventure all over the country and neighboring Jordan. This is a partly guided tour, combining fascinating, informative guiding with individual exploration.

You begin your package in Tel Aviv, the city that never sleeps! During your stay in Tel-Aviv you will begin with an evening activity called “Paint & Pint” which is a great way to meet fellow travelers on your first day in the country! The next morning, you will explore the beautiful neighborhood of Jaffa on our late morning walking tour. 

On day 3 you will head south toward the desert for another exciting part of the tour. You will climb and explore the ancient fortress and archaeological ruins of Masada, while enjoying a spectacular view of the desert and Dead Sea below. Then you will hike in the Ein Gedi nature reserve, and lastly, swim and float in the mineral-rich Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth!

On Day 4 While staying in Abraham Hostel Jerusalem, you will join our Holy City tour, an amazing way to experience the rich history of the old city. The tour is packed with amazing sites holy to Jews, Muslims, and Christians and fascinating to history lovers, such as the Western Wall, Dome of the Rock, Al Aqsa Mosque, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. 

The next part of the package is 3 exciting days in Jordan! We will cross at the Allenby Bridge border, and enter Jordan, driving through the desert for about an hour where after about an hour we will stop for lunch at a local restaurant.

We continue towards the exquisite desert landscape of Wadi Rum, virtually

untouched by humanity. We will travel through the vast scenic desert valley on a 4×4 Jeep tour, providing you with the best possible experience of this moon-like landscape, the red sand dunes, towering cliffs of weathered stone, and desert animals with the sunset’s beautiful colors.

From here we will go to a Bedouin camp near Petra where you will enjoy Bedouin hospitality, including an Arab-style dinner and a comfortable bed for the night. Before going to sleep, sit beneath the clear desert skies and stargaze, as you drink a cup of delicious Bedouin tea.

Waking up early the next morning, we will have a quick breakfast before we get on the bus and depart for Petra. This day of the trip is focused entirely on Petra, a famous archeological site set in a stunning red sandstone landscape. One of the new seven wonders of the world, and the highlight of this trip, Petra was once a major crossroads of the ancient Near East, and its Nabataean people flourished through commerce. You will have the whole morning to tour Petra with the guide, before taking a lunch break at a local restaurant. Then in the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to explore the various sites, such as the monastery, on your own before heading back to camp for dinner and another night in the Bedouin camp.

The third day of this tour will be a half day. We will start with breakfast at the campsite and from there drive to  Madaba, ancient jordanian city, and go up to the viewpoint of Mount Nebo. We will have lunch and then head back to the Allenby Bridge border crossing, and arrive in Jerusalem in the afternoon.

This fully-guided tour is a truly memorable experience in Jordan, including full transportation to all locations. We recommend the Abraham Tours extensively informational travel app for smartphones and tablets, for additional information about each of the sites. The app includes maps, information and pictures, and can be downloaded in advance so it doesn’t require an internet connection while you’re on the tour.

After returning to Jerusalem, the next morning you will head to the West Bank for our Best of the West Bank Tour that covers Bethlehem, Ramallah & Jericho – where you’ll get a taste of Palestinain culture & important sites to Christianity such as the Baptism Site on the Jordan River & The Church of Nativity in Bethlehem.
