Petra & Wadi Rum Tour from Tel Aviv (3-Day Tour)

Our three fully packed days begin in Tel Aviv, as we head toward the Jordanian border. We cross at the northern Sheikh Hussein border, and enter Jordan, driving through the Judean desert for about an hour.

We continue towards Jerash, where we have lunch at a nearby restaurant before continuing to the ancient city of Jerash, one of the best-preserved Roman provincial towns in the world. The historical city contains an ancient cardo, a hippodrome, oval forum, temples, and Hadrian’s arch. Step back in time as you walk through the ruins of this 4000-year-old city, while your guide explains this wonderful blend of Greco-Roman architecture and the Mediterranean world.

We then continue to the capital city Amman, where we will drive by sites like the Royal Palace, King Hussein National Mosque, and get a general overview of the city. Before moving on from Amman, we’ll get to taste a delicious local sweet, called Knafeh.

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 archaeological 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 spent in 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 moonlike landscape, the red sand dunes, towering cliffs of weathered stone, and desert animals. After the jeep ride we will have lunch at a local restaurant, then head back to the Allenby bridge border crossing, and arrive in Tel Aviv by late evening.

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.

For more information on the sites we’ll be passing, download our free travel app to your smartphone.

Can I change my return city?

After crossing back into Israel, we have different vehicles waiting for you to take you to either Jerusalem or Tel Aviv. The size & number of vehicles are determined by the number of participants who departed from each city. Therefore getting off in the other city cannot be guaranteed.

Can I stay in Jordan after the tour ends?

If you plan to leave the tour in Jordan let us know in advance, and we will make the necessary adjustments.

How do we cross back into Israel?

The tour returns to Israel via the Allenby Bridge Border Crossing.

There will be a short stretch of time in which you will be in the crossing without the guide (who will remain on the Jordanian side), while our drivers will be waiting for you on the Israeli side.

For this, it is important to note the following:

* Be patient – during busy periods the crossing might be crowded and slow.
* Returning to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem on your own – there is a small chance that you will be delayed by extra questioning, and have to go back to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv on your own. If you are concerned this may happen to you, please read more about it under “What if I experience issues while crossing the border?”.

This is how it goes, step by step:

Try to stick together as a group to make the process easier, unless someone is delayed for questioning. This is not uncommon, and is not a reason for concern. The group should continue through the border, as the delayed passenger can take a shared taxi back to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv once they’ve crossed the border.

* Please note that our representatives are not allowed into the terminal and cannot
assist you inside.

1. Check in your luggage: Once you finish the procedure on the Jordanian side, the bus will transfer you to the Israeli terminal, where you will be dropped off with your luggage. The first queue is to drop off your luggage for security screening and get a sticker on your passport with the number of pieces of luggage. You’ll still need to get the sticker, even if you only have hand luggage.

2. First security check: The second queue is to get your passport scanned and put a security sticker on it. Please introduce yourself as a group.

3. Hand luggage and personal security check: You will then enter the terminal and put your hand luggage through a baggage scanner, and go through a metal detector. Please remove all metal objects before passing through the detector (coins, belts, phones, etc.).

4. Passport control: At this point you might be asked questions about what you have done in Jordan, what your plans are in Israel, etc. Occasionally the immigration asks a person to wait for further questioning. This process may take a while. If you have been delayed, and the Abraham Tours bus has already left with the rest of the group, you can return to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv using the shared taxis (explained further under “What if I experience issues while crossing the border?”).

5. Luggage and Passport stamp check: Your luggage and passport will be checked to make sure you have gone through all necessary security procedures.

6. Pick up your luggage, pass through customs and you are done! Outside the terminal our driver and bus will be waiting to transfer you back to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.

What if I experience issues while crossing the border?

As this tour crosses international borders, our ability to ensure the group is able to cross without delay is limited, due to security, customs and visa related issues.

As such, whilst we attempt to wait for all tour participants before departing from the border, both on the way into and on the back from Jordan, if a passenger is delayed we will attempt to provide or suggest alternative transport arrangements for this person to join the group, or arrive in Jerusalem at a later point, to ensure the tour is able to run as scheduled for the rest of the tour participants.

In the event you have been delayed while crossing the border:
In this case, if you can’t find any Abraham Tours bus or sign, the bus may have already left with the group to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, so as not to delay the whole group. This is how you can return to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv:

Take a seat in a SHARED Taxi to Jerusalem: Once you exit the terminal, 5 meters from the door, on the left hand-side wall, is a taxi booth for Al-Nijmeh taxi company. Buy a ticket for a seat in a SHARED taxi. The ticket costs 42 ILS per person and 5 ILS per piece of luggage. Be sure that you are taking the shared taxi and not the private, which costs 350 ILS. You will be directed to the taxi, where you may have to wait until the taxi fills up (this, unfortunately, may take some time). Once the taxi departs, get off at the final stop – Damascus Gate.

1. Getting back to Abraham Hostel Jerusalem: from Damascus Gate it is a short walk west to the Tram stop. Buy a ticket for 5.9 ILS. The Davidka Square stop (where the hostel is located) is the 3rd stop on the tram, in the direction of the Central Station. Alternatively, you can take a brisk 25-minute walk – follow the Old City walls up the hill to Jaffa Road, and walk on Jaffa, with the tram tracks, all the way to the hostel.

2. Getting back to Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv: from Damascus Gate it is a short walk west to the Tram stop. Buy a ticket for 5.9 ILS and get off at the Central Station (6 stations from Damascus Gate). In the Central Station, go up to the 3rd floor. Look for bus number 405 which will take you to Tel Aviv Central Bus Station for the cost of 16 ILS.

Walking from Tel Aviv Central Bus Station: head northeast on Tsemach David St toward Levinsky st. Turn left onto Levinsky st and walk along Levinski for 600 m. Then turn right onto Chlenov St and after 230 m. continue onto Barzilai St. After 140 m. turn right onto Levontin St. The hostel is located on 21 Levontin St. The walk takes 17 minutes or so in total.

Taking a bus: from central bus station take bus number 5 to Allenby/Yehuda Halevi st (4 stops). It’s a short walk from there. A single fare is 5.9 ILS and it takes about 15 min.

* Please note: If you arrive on Shabbat (Friday evening or Saturday during daytime), or after 11:30PM, you should take a share taxi to Tel Aviv instead, which costs 25-35 ILS (no extra payment for luggage). These leave from the corner of HaNaviim Street and Monbaz Street, a 10 minute walk from Damascus gate up HaNaviim street.


Refund your costs: We are happy to reimburse you for the cost of your journey at our Travelers Center at the hostel. Please keep your receipts and we will refund the shared taxi to Jerusalem of 42 ILS, luggage fee of 5 ILS, bus to Tel Aviv of 16 ILS, bus ticket of 5.90 ILS – according to the transportation you used.
