You will be picked up from Aqaba port were you will meet your friendly, professional English-speaking drivers after your cruise ship docks. Proceed to the Nabatean Red Rose City of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, for a classic visit. A city 245 kilometers from Amman, carved in stone more than 2000 years ago in order to dominate the trade routes of ancient Arabia. First a walk through the “siq”, a narrow path of 1.2 kilometers; this is the main entrance to the city. At the end of the “siq”, the visitors will be amazed by the treasury - “Khazneh”, which was believed to hold countless treasures. Other monuments you will see are the Theater, and the Royal Tombs. Come and explore one of the world’s wonders of architectural engineering combined with the ingenuity of carving for an unforgettable adventure just like the one in Indiana Jones!  Proceed to Wadi Rum for an extraordinary experience. Wadi Rum, almost 70 kilometers from Aqaba, where the movies The Martians and Lawrence of Arabia were filmed; is a uniquely shaped massive mountain that rose amongst the rosy red sand of the desert with towering cliffs of various brownish, reddish, and golden colors. Within this emptiness and silence you can explore the desert in Jeeps 4 x 4 visiting the seven pillars of wisdom and the holographic pictures carved before Christ.

Our ship docked in Aqaba. Prox 3 hour drive to Petra. Driver Nasser was very knowledgable and spoke good English. Picked up English speaking tour guide in Petra. This was a once in a life time experience. On return from Petra did tour of Wadi Rum which highly recommend-very exciting driving through the desert, seeing the formations meeting Bedouins. On way back Nasser took us on some sightseeing that was not a part of the original package. Highly recommend -would not want to miss chance to see Petra and Wadi Rum was an excellent bonus. This is long day but was one of the highlights of our 28 day cruise. Pricing much more reasonable than through the cruise line.
