Jerusalem and Petra - two days one night tour from Dahab

Day 1:
We depart from Dahab late evening at 22.00 (to be confirmed) and drive to Taba. After you are greeted and assisted at Taba we set out from the Taba boarder, driving along Arava Valley towards the Dead Sea, where we stop for a short break. Don't be afraid to ask about taking a short dip in the unique and healthy water of the Dead Sea.
Afterwards we ascend to the Holy City – Jerusalem. We start our tour with a panoramic view from the Mount of Olives (a good place for an introduction to the city and its history).
We visit the Holy sites of the three monotheistic religions represented in Jerusalem: we start with the Wailing Wall, which represents the last remnants of the Jewish Temple destroyed by the Romans; usually you can observe the various types of Jews who come to worship at this Holy place. It is open for visitors.
We ascend to the Temple Mount, where we can look at the famous Dome of the Rock.
We continue through the Arab market (suq) to the Via Dolorosa, otherwise known as the Jesus’ way of Suffering, which leads us to the church of the Holy Sepulcher, where according to the Christian tradition Jesus was crucified and buried.
The tour finishes at least at 6.30 pm.
We drive through the new city towards the Dead Sea and then back to Eilat. From there we drive to Aqaba border and then to Aqaba city. Overnight here in a hotel.

Day 2:
After breakfast we will be transferred from Aqaba to Petra by AC- bus.
Upon your arrival to Petra we will begin our 2-3 hour guided tour. We will enter Petra on foot, though the Siq, a narrow, winding gorge over 1 kilometer in length. We visit the Great Treasury (Al-Khazneh Farun), the Roman Theatre, the Royal Tombs (the Rainbow Tomb is a must for photographers), as well as hundreds of monuments, tricliniums, and obelisks, all carved from the multi-shaded, rose red sandstone. A walk through the colonnade of Roman Byzantine Petra brings us to the city centre. Afterwards, we continue our tour to the hill of Al-Habis (crowned with a crusader-era fort) for a breathtaking panoramic view of deep gullies and uniquely colored rock formations.
After having lunch at the Movenpick or Marriott hotel, we will drive back to Aqaba at 4 pm to cross the border to Eliat and to drive back to Taba.
Upon your arrival to Taba you will be met and transferred back to Dahab.
