You will be transferred to Taba via a modern air-conditioned vehicle. Then move to Taba Heights marina, take the boat to Aqaba, where you are met and assisted by our representative, then transferred directly to Petra. Petra is situated about 3 hours south of Amman, 1 hour north of Aqaba, 1 and half hour from the Dead Sea which is called the Dead Sea because nothing lives in it. It is some of the saltiest water anywhere in the world, almost six times as salty as the ocean.
Petra is surrounded by towering hills of rust-colored sandstone which gave the city some natural protection against invaders In Petra, you see the wonderful the red rose rock city, the city of the Nabateans, the lost city, all carved in the mountains, riding horse to the Siq (canyon), the natural crack in the rocks to the Roman Theatre, Royal Tombs, the Roman colonnaded street, Qasr Al-Bent and then the archaeological museum. Lunch, then back to Aqaba city for a short city tour and free time for shopping. Back to drive back to Dahab.
