We took a customized 3-day (Southern Israel + Petra + Wadi Rum) tour with Desert Eco Tours. We started the trip from Jerusalem, going south and explored Ein Gedi, Masada, Dead Sea and the Negev, before crossing the border to Jordan and continue on to the 2 day tour of Petra and Wadi Rum. Since no one else is doing... More

They are based in Israel but pair... More

We used Desert Eco Tours for a trip to Petra from Eilat. (1) This was a logistically difficult trip - border crossings in and out, a night in Aqaba, and different departure times back to the border for different members of our group. Despite all that, it came out fine - no one forgot to come get us, or didn't... More

Our guide spoke mostly in Hebrew since six out of the eight of us did not speak English. Gave us a quick review in English of what he told them.

This was a great tour. Our guide Ali was so knowledgeable and friendly. We were accompanied by a tour representative through customs start to finish. Petra was incredible, truly a once in a lifetime must see. Although expensive, this was worth it.
