  • Petra Excursion Sharm El Sheikh

    Petra Excursion Sharm El Sheikh

    Sale! £235.00 "inc. Vat"
    If you're dreaming of a breathtaking adventure, you simply cannot miss the magnificent stone marvels of Petra. The journey may require a bus, boat, and horse or camelback travel over the six-hour trip from Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt, but trust us when we say that the experience is worth every effort. Petra is more than just a popular tourist destination in Jordan. It's a historical gem that boasts immensity, beauty, and significance that is incomparable to any other archaeological site around the world. You'll have the chance to explore the city of Petra, which was carved into the mountains almost 2,000 years ago, and witness its grandeur firsthand. Our itinerary includes pick-up at your hotel, a bus to the borders, a ferry to Petra, and a two-hour drive to Petra to start your adventure with an English-speaking guide. Petra was once home to 30,000 people who thrived in this dry desert and quenched their thirst through a channel and cistern system that harvested and stored winter rains for future use. The Nabateans were incredibly skilled engineers who even built gardens amidst the harsh environment. Your first walk in Petra will be through the stunning Canyon of Siq, a natural geological feature formed from a deep split in the sandstone rocks. This Canyon is one of the main reasons why Petra was such an alluring site for the Nabateans, behind a narrow and easily defensible canyon known as the Siq. Your next visit should be to the great treasury of the Pharaoh, which is known as Al Khazneh. It has classical Greek-influenced architecture and was originally built probably between 100 BC and 200 AD. The Nabateans were excellent engineers and built water conservation and irrigation systems and carved their homes, temple, graves, and tombs right out of the rocks. Let's not forget about the Roman Theater, where a period follows in which the dominant civilization combines Greek, Egyptian, and Syrian elements, pointing to the age of the Ptolemies. With the amazing skill of the Nabateans, they built water conservation and irrigation systems and carved their homes, temple, graves, and tombs right out of the rocks. After a memorable day of exploring, you'll get to enjoy a delicious lunch in an amazing restaurant in the city centre. But before we head back to the port, we'll take you to visit Al Habis Fort, where you'll have a fine view over the entire central Petra basin where Al-Habis Crusader Fortress is located. It is a secondary fortress, designed and sited to control the strategic communication route within the Petra basin that was not in sight of the Al-Wu'eira Fortress. Petra is not just a destination; it's an experience of a lifetime. If you're looking for a trip that will leave you with lasting memories and a sense of wonder, then Petra is definitely worth the journey.
