Day Trip to Petra by Boat

Day Trip to Petra by Boat

    You will be collected from your hotel in Sharm el Sheikh at around 02.00. This is estimated time and we will confirm with you once you have let us know in which hotel in Sharm El Sheikh you are staying. You will travel  by air conditioned comfortable vehicle, and will make your way to Taba Heights Marina, stopping along the way in Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba to collect other guests.

 

    On arrival in Jordan you will drive to Petra with your guide in an air conditioned vehicle to begin your tour.

 

    We start the tour on foot, though the Siq or the Canyon; a narrow, winding gorge over 1 kilometre in length. The beautiful sandstone formations of Petra were once occupied by the Edomites. One of the reasons why Petra was such an attractive site for the Nabateans is because of its virtual invisibility; behind a narrow and easily defensible canyon known as the Siq.

 

    As you come to the end of this beautiful ravine, a very narrow opening offers a peephole to one of the most spectacular sites in Petra: the treasury. Carved out of the side of the sandstone mountain face, probably in the first century BC, scholars continue to debate as to its actual function.

 

    After the visit to the treasury, we will visit the Roman theatre (which dates back to Byzantine era) and the Royal tombs. Little is known about the ancient culture of the Nabateans, except that they were excellent engineers with amazing skill and craft. They built water conservation and irrigation systems and carved their homes, temples and tombs directly out of the rocks.

 

    Lunch will be at the Movenpick hotel in the city centre.

 

    We will continue on to the hill of Al-Habis fort, which dates back to Crusader's times, for a breath-taking panoramic view of deep gullies and uniquely coloured rock formations.

 

    We will drive back to Aqaba where you will have one hour free time for shopping. Then we will make our way back to the marina for the boat back to Taba. Once across the border and back in Egypt we will travel back to Sharm el Sheikh and you will be driven back to your hotel.
