One day trip to Petra from Eilat was excellently organised and planned . The pick up , crossing at the border and handover to local team in Jordan and then drive to Petra and Guide and the overall visit and then lunch and drive back so that we can cross the border in time. precision. The guide , driver and handling agent at the border all did marvellous job and very courteous. One day tour is taxing but if you do not have the then it is fine. We saw the whole Monument. Absolute must do.

The 2-day tour is preferable, the value is similar and it has more activities, we take the private tour because we went with our 1-year-old son but it does not have much difference with the group tour. They take them to the same places, have lunch in the same restaurant, all the same.
