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 get to start by exploring what Tel Aviv is most famous for (it’s nightlife) on our TLV Pub Crawl. The next morning, you will explore the beautiful neighborhood of Jaffa on our late morning walking tour. 

On day 3 you will head to Jerusalem and 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. Finish the day with a fun evening activity of Paint & Pint in our hostel.

On Day 4 While staying in Abraham Hostel Jerusalem, 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.

The next part of the tour is three exciting days exploring the treasures of Jordan. We will cross the border at the Sheikh Hussein Bridge, and continue to visit the 900-year old castle of Ajloun. We will arrive at the ancient city of Jerash, an incredibly preserved Roman city with colonnaded streets, mosaics, baths, theaters, temples, and a hippodrome. 

Our next stop is the capital city of Amman. We will tour both the modern downtown of the city and the old Citadel, which includes the Temple of Hercules and historic palaces. We’ll have lunch at a local restaurant and try kanafeh for dessert. We then head south to the desert and will stay in a Bedouin camp for the night. The Bedouins, nomadic inhabitants of the desert, will share their delicious meals and comfortable tents with us.

One of the highlights of this tour is a whole day devoted to Petra. One of the seven wonders of the world, and poetically described as “a rose-red city half the age of time”, Petra is an incredible experience for any traveler. Carved into the red rocks of the desert cliffs thousands of years ago by the ancient Nabatean people, Petra was hidden under the sand for centuries before recently becoming accessible again. We will tour through the treasury, amphitheater, royal tombs, and monastery before heading back to the Bedouin camp for another night of good local food, too much tea, and music. On your last day in Jordan you will get to explore the red desert of Wadi Rum. 

After returning to Jerusalem, the next morning  we 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!
