Petra air excursion

Pick up from your hotel in Sharm el Sheikh

Pick up from your hotel in Sharm el Sheikh in the morning, transfer to Sharm el Sheikh airport and fly to Aqaba, Jordan. Take a coach and ride for 2 more hours to Petra city.

Walk through the Canyon or Siq

We start the tour on foot, though the Siq or the Canyon, a narrow, winding gorge over 1 kilometer in length. Beautiful sandstone formations of Petra were once occupied by the Edomites. One of the reasons why Petra was such an attractive site for the Nabateans is its virtual hiddeness behind a narrow and easily defensible canyon known as the Siq.

Visit of Al Khazneh or The great treasury of the Pharaoh

As you come to the end of this beautiful ravine, a very narrow opening offers a peephole to one of the most spectacular sites in Petra - the treasury. Carved out of the side of the sandstone mountain face probably in the first century BC, scholars debate as to it's actual function.

The Roman theatre & the Roya tombs

After the visit of the treasury we will visit the Roman theatre which dates back to Byzantine era & the Royal tombs. Not a lot is known about the ancient culture of the Nabateans, except that they were excellent engineers.With amazing skill and craft they built water conservation and irrigation systems and carved their homes, temples and tombs right out of the rocks.

Lunch time

Lunch will be offered in a local restaurant, drinks are not included.

Back to Sharm-el-Sheikh

At the end of the day drive back to Aqaba airport and catch your flight to Sharm el Sheikh. Transfer to your hotel .

Petra air excursion reviews

Another great tour! Our guide, Hussein, was excellent! He plied us with information and had a wicked sense of humour. The drive to Petra is beautiful and Petra itself is truly breathtaking! We loved this trip and highly recommend it!
