For travelers looking for Petra Tours from Israel, Jordan offers a fascinating extension, brimming with historical and biblical significance. Journey beyond the border and discover the rose-red marvel of Petra, an ancient city carved into sandstone cliffs. Explore the Siq, a narrow gorge leading to the iconic Treasury, and wander through the sprawling necropolis, marveling at architectural feats.
However, Jordan boasts more than just Petra. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of Jerash, a remarkably well-preserved Roman city with its colonnaded streets, temples, and amphitheater. Explore Amman, Jordan's vibrant capital, where bustling markets and modern structures contrast with ancient citadels.
For a spiritual connection, visit Mount Nebo, the place where Moses is believed to have glimpsed the Promised Land to take in breathtaking views of the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea. In Madaba, known for its Byzantine mosaics, visit the St. George's Church, showcasing the oldest map of the Holy Land.
Combining Petra Tours from Israel with these other Jordanian gems creates a well-rounded experience. Multi-day tours offer a convenient way to explore, handling border crossings, transportation, and accommodation. Prepare to be dazzled by Jordan's archaeological wonders and rich heritage.

What is the best way to visit Petra from Israel?
The best way for you to visit Petra will depend on your budget, travel style, and preferences, but if you are looking for a hassle-free experience, then an organized tour is the way to go.
This is the easiest and most convenient way to see Petra and other highlights of Jordan. Tours include transportation from your hotel in Israel, border crossings, entrance fees, and a knowledgeable guide as well as meals and overnight accommodation in Jordan.

Is Petra a day trip from Israel?
Petra is technically possible to visit as a day trip from Israel, but it's a long and busy day. Most tours take 12-16 hours, depending on your departure city in Israel. Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are the furthest locations, so expect a longer travel time.
While it is a long day, it can be a good way to see one of the new Seven Wonders of the World if you're short on time. However, you won't have much time to explore Petra at your own pace, and you'll be exhausted by the end of the day.
If you decide a day trip isn't for you, there are multi-day tours available that include overnight stays in Jordan and give you the chance to visit other sites in the kingdom as well as Petra..

Do you need visa to visit Petra from Israel?
In most cases, yes, you will need a visa to visit Petra from Israel. However, you can obtain a visa upon arrival at certain border crossings, provided you are not a citizen of a country that requires a pre-arranged visa.
At either of these border crossings, you will pay a visa fee of around US$60.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind:
On our multi-day tours to Jordan, we arrange a free visa waiver for you.
There is a separate $65 border fee which covers departure taxes from both Israel and Jordan upon arrival and departure.
If you are planning to cross the border at Allenby Bridge (between Jerusalem and Amman), you will need to obtain a visa in advance from the Jordanian Embassy. This is because visas are not issued upon arrival at this border crossing.
