What to expect

Explore the antiquities of Petra on this guided tour! You'll walk through one kilometer gorge of the Siq which constitutes the entrance to the city and admire the golden dazzling colors of the rock formations around you. You'll admire the monuments carved into the pink rock facades by the Nabateans trader population over 2000 years ago while proving their extraordinary engineering skills as well as the trading ones.

You'll then reach the temple of Al Khazneh and discover the elaborate rock-cut tombs decorated with intricate carvings, or the magnificent Roman-style theater, the sacrificial altars and the streets surrounded by colonnades.

After, you'll enjoy the panoramic view from the Ad Deir Monastery and learn about Petra's history at the Archaeological Museum and Nabataean Museum. At the end of the tour, you'll have some time to do some shopping at the traditional souvenir stalls set up by the artisans of Wady Musa or relax at a nearby Bedouin settlement before being dropped off at your hotel.
