Early morning drive for approx three hours to Taba port to take the Ferry boat at 07.30am to Aqaba, arrives at 08.45am. Drive to Petra by bus for approx. 2 hours, where a 2-3 hour guided tour begins. We enter Petra on foot, though the Siq, a narrow, winding gorge over 1 kilometer in length. We visit the Great Treasury (Al-Khazneh Farun), the Roman Theatre, the Royal Tombs (the Rainbow Tomb is a must for photographers), as well as hundreds of monuments, tricliniums, and obelisks, all carved from the multi-shaded, rose red sandstone. A walk through the colonnade of Roman Byzantine Petra brings us to the city centre for lunch.
