There is definitely a lot to see in Israel: history, culture, beaches, food, and a lot more. Even a three-week itinerary would not be enough to squeeze in all the attractions of this country. And yet, it is true that Israel is pretty small, which is a huge upside if you want to visit the neighboring countries. In particular, combined Israel and Jordan tours are extremely popular, and Genesis Boutique Travel has been offering such tours for more than two decades. Perhaps you are wondering how to go from Eilat to Petra? Our private tours are the perfect solution for you.
The distance from Israel to Jordan, and especially from Eilat to Jordan, is very small, this is certainly true. But make no mistake: this is not a Schengen border, but a proper national border with passports, stamps, and all the things any self-respecting border control has. Even if you prefer doing things on your own, bear in mind that it is not possible to go to Jordan on a car rented in Israel, nor another way round, so you will have to rely on public transport. Israel does not have any international buses, so after crossing the border you will be left on your own. There is no public bus that goes from the border with Israel to Petra and round way.
This is why, while we always recommend booking a tour to save your time, this is doubly true for a journey from Eilat to Petra. We will take care of all the formalities, our vehicles are comfortable, equipped with WiFi and air condition, and a licensed guide speaking your language will be with you throughout the entire trip. Contact us now for more details: rest assured that your vacation is in good hands.
Despite the geographical proximity of the two cities, going from Eilat to Petra on your own is not always the most pleasant experience. Our tours were designed to alleviate this problem so you could spend more time on enjoying your vacation rather than on waiting for the right bus to arrive. Whether you are visiting Israel for the first time or are a frequent traveler, we will be delighted to tailor the perfect itinerary and transfer that fits your needs.
The advantage of vacationing in a small country like Israel is that everything is near: it takes merely several hours to cross Israel from north to south. Another advantage is that it enables tourists to visit neighboring countries, such as Jordan, without tiresome plane rides. If you are going to Eilat, you have a fantastic opportunity to discover Petra without having to specially book a Jordan tour, and we highly recommend taking a trip to this terrific location.
