Constructed in the 6th century BC by the Nabataeans, Petra is often described as ‘The Rose-Red city half as old as time’ and it’s difficult to overstate this place’s beauty. While walking around you will be overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the rainbow-coloured sandstone gorges, carvings, tombs and obelisks. Petra, discovered by the Swiss Explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812, has been described by the BBC as ‘one of the 40 places you have to see before you die’.

Pick up


We will pick you up from your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh at 2 am and transfer you by A/C minibus to Taba Port to catch the ferry to Aqaba, Jordan.

From there you will drive by A/C coach to Petra where a guided tour begins.


Petra and the Great Treasury


We will enter Petra on foot through the spectacularly beautiful narrow and winding gorge over 1kilomete in length, until the gorge opens out revealing the Great Treasury.

The Roman Theatre


We will continue to walk to the Roman Theatre which was constructed in the early 1st century AD by the Nabataean civilization. It was later enlarged and improved by the Romans shortly after their annexation of the Kingdom in 106 AD. They accomplished this by ruthlessly gouging away a street of houses and tombs in order to extend the rear of the auditorium, which could at that time accommodate 3000 people.


Ancient Tombs of Petra


The next stop on your guided tour is to the Royal Tombs (the Rainbow Tomb is a must for photographers), as well as hundreds of monuments and obelisks, all carved from the unique rose red sandstone.

Lunch in the City Centre


A walk through the colonnade of Roman Byzantine Petra brings us to the city centre for lunch at the Movenpick Hotel.


Al-Habis Fort


After lunch, we continue our tour to the hill of Al-Habis (crowned with a crusader-era fort) for a breath-taking panoramic view of deep gullies and uniquely coloured rock formations.

Free time and Shopping in Aqaba


After you have seen the magnificent sights of Petra, you will be driven back to Aqaba for an hour of free time, perfect for shopping or if you prefer having a drink and relaxing. 


Return to Sharm

After seeing Aqaba, you will be transferred to Aqaba Port to catch the ferry back to Taba and then from Taba you will be transferred to your hotel by A/C minibus.
