Caution: The recent increase in visitors and tours to Petra from Israel and Eilat has resulted in a colorful wave of internet 'tour operators'. Desert Eco Tours is the leading operator to Petra and Jordan from Israel. Be discerning, we wont compromise the quality of your tour, be sure you dont.
*Please Note* Entrance fees to Petra rose dramatically to $138. For people spending one night in Jordan the cost will be considerably less. We are recommending clients to consider taking the two day Israel to Petra and Jordan tour (Petra and Wadi Rum), which was always a better option than the one day tour to Petra. The lower cost of the entrance fees for those spending the night in Petra covers a significant part of the difference between the two Petra tours.
The New York Times is recommending Desert Eco Tours' trips to Jordan and Petra.

Jordan - Petra One Day Tour (Jordan tours)
Firstly a little word about why Desert Eco Tours is the number one choice for visitors to Petra and Jordan from Israel. We are Israel's leading tour operator from Israel to Petra and unlike the other companies we do not pool our tours with other operators, all our tours are exclusively Desert Eco Tours. Booking with us means means an early start for getting to and through the border first and avoiding the inevitable delays that the pooled companies must face, this gives our clients an average of one hour more touring Petra. Our permanent Jordanian tour staff are selected by us and operate according to our guidelines. Apart from having the best guides available we also use the services of Jordan's leading tour bus company for maximum comfort on route. On particularly busy days we add additional guides to the tour and divide the participants into smaller groups to ensure a high quality tour experience for everyone. We operate a large selection of tours, many of which run on a daily basis and our experienced staff are dedicated to providing the best possible service to each and every visitor.
On our two day Petra and Wadi Rum tours we spend a whole day exploring the highlights of the spectacular Wadi Rum (8 hours) in new, 4x4, air-conditioned vehicles driven by our local Bedouin English speaking staff. The ancient jeeps commonly used in the Rum by smaller tour operators are often driven by local youngsters and spend a maximum of 4 hours touring the Rum itself.
Petra day trip from Eilat - Israel: Departing daily this tour begins early morning at the Eilat hotels and heads to the border between Eilat and Jordan. We enter Jordan and continue on to Petra.
We arrive at Petra's visitor's center mid-morning. From there we walk to the Siq canyon which is the main entrance to Petra and one of Petra's most impressive sights. The walk through the Siq takes approximately 1/2 hour before that breathtaking experience of first stepping foot in Petra is upon us. Counted as one of the wonders of the world, Petra is an archaeological, anthropological and geological phenomenon. Your guide will share with you the legends, truths and myths of this incredible city. We explore all the major sites and ruins on the route. The walk through Petra is made easy by the endless sights and fascinating facts, all of which bring to life a history as colorful as the sandstone rock from which it was carved. Having explored the highlights of Petra, we walk back to the entrance; participants may choose to hire the services of the local donkey, camel and carriage drivers for this final part of the tour. Following the tour we have a late but hearty buffet lunch, then rejoin our mini-bus for the return journey to Eilat, arriving by evening.
