Tour Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea for 4 days. This is one of the most popular tours on offer. Tour inside Petra, see the famous Treasury, the temples, and more. Travel to Wadi Rum, see how the Bedouins live. Swim in the Dead Sea.
Petra has become famous in the past couple years for being one of the seven wonders of the world. Petra was left to us over 2000 years ago by the Nabateans, and you can see how industrious they were, by touring Petra. The Treasury is a very impressive facade carved into the side of a mountain, in intricate detail. In the Treasury is a large room that was used for sacrificing animals to their gods. Continue on to tour the rest of the facades, the tombs, the mourning houses, the amphitheater, and much more.
Wadi Rum is situated in a valley in the middle of the desert. It is inhabited by the Bedouins, and has been for the past couple hundreds of years. The Wadi Rum desert is very beautiful, and the sandstone formations that seem to pop out of the sand are absolutely amazing.
Dead Sea was once a refuge for kings and nobles. Up until today and going back thousands of years, people have come to soak in the waters of the Dead Sea, for its curing minerals that the water contains.
