Know More about this tour

From Jerusalem, your first day starts by crossing to Jordan via the Sheikh Hussein border. Driving past the lush mountains of the countrys north, your first stop is one of the worlds best-preserved Roman cities: Jerash. The impressive Hadrians arch marks the entrance to a variety of colonnaded streets, perfectly designed theatres and vast squares.

After a traditional lunch, youll head to Ammans Citadel, where you can learn about the history of one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, and enjoy the panoramic views across this modern capital. In the afternoon, the route will take you to a Bedouin camp near modern Petra, allowing the unique experience of Bedouin hospitality including a delicious dinner, local music and stargazing next to a warming campfire. Youll spent the night here in one of the traditional, comfortable huts, where real beds and sheets are provided alongside a towel.

The next morning, youll board your minivan again just after breakfast and depart for Petra. The entire day is dedicated to wandering the red-rose city and its famous archaeological sites built by the Nabataeans some 2.000 years ago. The first half will be a guided tour past the siq and the treasury, while after a local lunch youll have time to go explore other sites like the monastery or royal tombs. In the evening, youll head back for dinner and another night in the Bedouin camp.

Your last day consists of an exciting 4x4 Jeep tour through the virtually untouched, moon-like desert landscape of Wadi Rum. After lunch at a local restaurant, youll make your way to the Allenby Border crossing, and arrive back in Jerusalem by late evening.

    This is a must-do for anyone who wishes to visit Jordan! I absolutely enjoyed everything during the tour. Ali was an amazing guide and Anas was an incredible driver. The Bedouin campsite experience was out of this world. Food was also amazing. To top it off, the tour group was so super fun and bonded that it felt like a big family. I left Jordan with not only beautiful memories but also a group of new friends. Thank you Abraham Tours!

    Don't be tempted to save a day and do the two day tour. Don't go with a different tour operator. Don't miss out. This three day tour is simply outstanding. Ali was out guide and could not have been more caring, knowledgeable and professional. He clearly loves his country and his people, and he was so helpful in guiding us through how to be good guests and explaining the history and culture. Each day was varied with the first and the last having significant amounts of driving but broken up with stops and visiting attractions. The travel went by quickly and the coach was comfy. The middle day was the clear highlight with a spectacular full day in Petra. Come ready to walk and hike if you want to make the most of it but it is an experience you will never forget. I thought it might be helpful to capture a few things I wish I had known before I left. - You don't need foreign currency before you leave. The Israeli exit fee (184ILS I think) can be paid on card and there is a cash machine and currency exchange at the Jordanian border. To pick up Dinar. - I was a solo traveler and I took out 70 Jordanian Dollars for drinks, tips and one small gift purchase. You can easily spend more and some managed with less but it felt about right. No matter how much water you take to Petra you will inevitably need to buy some liquid during the day if it's hot. You will also want to be able to tip generously throughout and your guide will advise what is appropriate. - The accommodation at the Bedouin Camp is out of this world. I think it changes in winter but we stayed in the 7 Wonders Bedouin Camp with warm showers, comfy beds, and incredible hosts. Some in our group had upgraded to luxury tents so contact Abraham Tours if you're interested in that. They had en suite facilities and viewing windows I think. - Every meal was a buffet so there was always choice but honestly, every meal was outstanding. - The borders take a bit of time to navigate but you'll get there. When you check in your bags you get given a sticker - hold on to it because you'll need it to get your bag back. - We were back in Jerusalem at 8pm on our return. It sounds as though this varies a lot depending on the Israeli border but we sailed through. I hope this is helpful. Overall, it is the trip of a lifetime and not to be missed. I thought it represented incredible value for money. Big thanks to the wonderful Ali!

    This was a fantastic tour and thoroughly enjoyable. It was well organized and we enjoyed the company of our fellow travelers. The tour guide, Ali, was excellent - very knowledgeable and also warm and entertaining. He did a great job of shepherding the 18 of us in his flock and keeping us on schedule for a very busy trip. Also the driver “the second best driver “ (which we all changed to “number 1”) was excellent - we felt safe at all times. The seven wonders camp was clean, comfortable and the all the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Petra and Wadi Rum were standouts. In particular the trail up to the “monastery” at Petra is recommended but it can be pretty tiring and make sure you bring sturdy (hiking type) footwear ! Definitely recommended!

    We went on the 3 day Petra tour as a family of 6 with 4 children aged 11-17. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour and gaining a full day at Petra was definitely worth the cost of an extra day to go on the 3 day tour. Our guide was a fluent English speaker, very knowledgeable and really helped bring Petra and all the different sites to life. Food was buffet style, tasty and with vegetarian options. Accommodation at the Bedouin tents was good, with small rooms with a lock (not so tent like but with carpets on the walls and ceiling), central area with toilets and showers (try not to get the tents near to them), and a fire pit area for relaxing at night with some songs and tea. An amazing overall experience and value for money. Thank you Abraham Tours

    My partner and I participated to the 3 day Petra and Wadi Rum trip organized by Abraham Tours. Honestly, it was just perfect, we loved every moment of it. Everything went smoothly and was well organized. The experience at the beduin camp was very interesting and we felt very well taken care of all the staff there. Obviously Petra was the main highlight of the trip but Wadi Rum jeep tour was also amazing. And, last but not least, our guide Mahdi was absolutely, absolutely fantastic!! I think the trips was so succesful also thanks to him!! Super knowleadgeabe, good humour, answerwd all our questions on Jordan and provided so much interesting info on all the sites that we visited, bravo to him! And also to our bus driver Norman, very good driver, we always felt safe and, as we spend quite a bit of time on the bus, it was very important to have a good driver. All in all very recommended trip and it was certainly the highlight of our holiday in Israel and Jordan!!

    For the most part, this was an absolutely marvelous tour. The site visits were all simply amazing, natural beauty at Wadi Rum and Petra that was literally breathtaking and the sites beyond description. While it is true that these sites merit more time than is possible on a 3-day trip, the Abraham tour allows enough time at each destination to have the experience of a lifetime. At Petra, the morning is spent a group trek to the Treasury, then you have the afternoon on your own to hike up to the Monastery or other sites within Petra. Our guide in Jordan, David, was outstanding as well - knowledgeable and funny. Having the group on WhatsApp was also very helpful. That said, there are a couple of things to be aware of when taking this trip. First, there is a *lot* of time spent on the bus. Obviously, distances are what they are, and there’s nothing that Abraham Tours can do about this, just know that on the first day it was ~15 hours from Tel Aviv to the evening’s accommodations, of which perhaps only 2 1/2 hours were spent actually touring. There are breaks/rest stops/lunch, but be prepared for a great deal of seat-time. Second, the accommodations at Petra are hostel-level and very basic. Abraham Tours did not oversell or disguise this so it’s not a problem but if you are used to staying in 5* (or 4*, or 3*, or 2*) hotels, this is going to be a different (and interesting) experience. Food was meh, but there was some great music performed by the fire one night! They even had hookahs if you choose to partake. Third, Petra is amazing but you should have some level of fitness and mobility. It’s a fair chunk of walking - I did about 12 miles/20km that day with some (generally optional) climbing, and I’d guess that much of our group put that to shame. The organized morning section is probably 5 miles/8km? It’s all through some of the most amazing scenery you’ll ever see, though. The one area that Abraham Tours fell short was on the return to Israel. COVID restrictions are a moving target, but the tour did not give us timely information on the testing and immigration forms and procedures ahead of time - the links in the emails were outdated, and we should have been given a reminder the evening before returning. As a result, probably half or more of the group didn’t realize that we still needed to be tested upon our return, didn’t fill out forms or prepay, etc. Also, there was no Abraham Tour representative waiting at the border (just a bus driver, who was not responsible for herding us through) and as a result group got split up, with some waiting in the bus for over an hour while others filled out forms, then paid for and waited to get tested. Also, the bus from the border to Jerusalem was *much* smaller than the bus in Jordan, and it took the driver a while to Tetris in all the luggage; I still don’t know how he as able to do it. While I gather that the testing requirements have now been eliminated, and this will be less of a problem going forward, their handling of the border crossing was still a pretty hard fail for Abraham Tours.

    The tour in Jordan was very good, even if you must expect a lot of time driving. The problem was the organization from Abraham tours on the way back, where we’ve waited for hours on the bus, waiting for other group. Nobody from Abraham tours was joignable and the driver said he had orders to wait for everybody. While that when you book they say never more than a hour waiting. If a problem people would come by taxi.

  • 15-Apr-2022

    The tour was a great experience. Jordan is such a nice a diverse country. Our tour guide, Ali, was such a friendly and knowledgeable person. Petra and Wadi Rub are really must-see place. Everything was organized by Abraham tour very smoothly, so easy crossing of the border, great camp to stay for the nights, very nice other travellers. I higly recommand to do the tour if you are in Israel and have some spare days.

  • 13-Apr-2022

    The tour was great! The very prepared guide, the very attentive driver and the incredible places we visited! Dana, super friendly to see the preparations for the trip! However, given the high price paid, we would have expected a better room, at least with a private bathroom.

    Petra/Wadi Rum - Jordan - 3 day Our guide Mo, what a character! Loved him. Super sweet, loving, friendly, open hearted, gentle, caring, interesting, intelligent, just a treasure. There were some issues, though.  The first day was exhausting, with an early pick up, our Jordan vehicle/driver/guide being delayed at the border. The transfer to Jordan through their customs check felt complicated and uneasy, but that is nobody's fault. We had a nice lunch near Amman, then a rushed drive through the country to get to Wadi Rum.  Wadi Rum - AMAZING - such a beautiful space and so glad I got to be there for an evening. I wish we got to stay later.  The document provided at the Israel/Jordan Border informing what to do in the event of being detained at the border upon return was distressing. I did not like it. It brought anxiety for me.  Myself nor the other travellers enjoyed the vehicle or driver used throughout Jordan. It was uncomfortable, had no seatbelts, and was driven by a gentleman who drove to fast and without caution. He hit a dog which apparently isn't uncommon, but for American or European tourists, this was tough!   Mo our guide was great. Really appreciated his candor, friendship, and communication. He is a keeper, but maybe encourage him to slow down and smell the roses a bit more. I felt rushed the whole time which made it less pleasant. I encourage you to keep using his business but maybe ask him to take it easy a bit. We're there to learn and be on vacation and see beautiful things, not to rush.                      Mo tried to allow for some guests to see Petra Night Tour, which I was too tired for, and the fact that we were rushing to get the guests there made the drive stressful and a bit much. Too much for one day in my opinion. Jerusalem Old City - 1/2 day Amir Kasher was the best tour guide I've ever had and he taught me sooo much. Bravo to him and Jerusalem. So grateful for that. I can't explain how much we did in one day, Western Wall, Temple Mount, Via De La Rosa, Austrian Hostel, Arab and Jewish Quarter marketplace, Holy Sepulchre. I can spend at least another day or two in old city with Amir. Masada, Ein Gedi, Dead Sea - 1 full day Samuel the guide and driver was wonderful, loving, kind, a great safe driver and super friendly and helpful. He is great and I would love to tour more of Israel with Samuel and Abraham.  I am interested in more nature exploration in the North as well as visiting Egypt. I found Abraham Tours to be very helpful for me to solo travel in a new country and experience what Israel has to offer, which is a lot. Thank you sooo much!!! The services were overall great and I would definitely recommend Abraham Tours despite any moments of challenge referenced above.
