Buried by sand for centuries and rediscovered in 1812, Petra is a three-hour drive south of Amman and features breath-taking architecture in its tombs, temples and theatres built into sandstone rock.

Cited as one of the wonders of the ancient world, Petra is now offered as a day excursion from the Red Sea by specialist tour operator Peltours – the only UK operator to offer pre-bookable day trips to the historic city for guests visiting Egypt.

The full day trip to the historic city costs £109 per person and includes lunch, a scenic boat trip and the services of an experienced tour guide to make the most of your visit.
