The beautiful treasury in Petra

Petra Tours

A holiday in Jordan would not be complete without a visit to the remarkable rose city of Petra, which was once the thriving capital of the Nabataean empire. Nestled in a secluded valley surrounded by Jordan’s rugged mountains, Petra was left deserted and hidden from the world for hundreds of years. After being rediscovered in the 1800s, the lost city of Petra is now not only Jordan’s leading tourist attraction, it’s also one of the world’s most incredible archaeological sites, and was recently voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. As all of our group tours and private tours to Jordan include a visit to Petra, we've highlighted some of our most popular Petra tours below...

Highlights of our Petra Tours

 

On our Petra Tours travel on foot or horseback down a towering narrow canyon known as The Siq to reach the spectacular, ancient rose city, famed for its red-hued sandstone facades. Upon entering the city all attention is drawn to The Treasury, a magnificent facade carved deep into the rock face which famously featured as the resting place of the Holy Grail in the film ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.’ Petra is home to over 800 registered sites including 500 tombs, an 8000 seat amphitheatre and a Roman rock carved street. The ancient capital’s largest and most iconic monument is the Monastery which can be found at the top of a steep sandstone trail and is well worth the climb.

 

On all of our tours of Jordan we offer a full day of guided sightseeing in Petra and there’s the unique opportunity to return to the rose city of Petra the following morning on a scenic hike, which takes a back route into Petra, along the ‘secret road’ of al-Madras.

 

The most incredible way to experience the mystic splendour of Petra for the first time is by booking ‘Petra By Night’. In the evening make your way through the narrow Siq to the iconic Treasury, which is illuminated by the glow of thousands candles on the floor and stars in the sky, then sit back and soak up the atmosphere to the sound of haunting Bedouin music. 'Petra By Night' can be booked locally on all of our Petra group tours and of course we can also organise it on a tailor-made tour of Petra.
