Featured in the film "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," the lost city of Petra can only be entered through the Siq - a narrow canyon barely wide enough to admit a horse and rider. Explore Jordan's finest national monument on a walking tour that explores such fabulous ruins as the Royal Tomb and the Treasury, carved out of walls of solid rock.

WHAT YOU VISIT
Siq - The tour of Petra begins with a stunning entry into the city: your guide leads you through a natural canyon, often no more than 16-feet wide, that winds through towering rock walls over 650 feet tall.

Khazneh - The "Treasury" is actually an ancient tomb carved from solid sandstone. Legend has it that pirates left treasure in the urn that sits on its upper level. The bullet marks on the urn were made by treasure seekers trying to shoot the urn open.

Roman Amphitheater - Today, archaeologists believe the stunning 8,000 seat amphitheater was carved out of the rock not by Romans but by the Nabatean people in the 2nd century BC.

Royal Tombs - Three royal tombs are carved into the face of Jebel Khubtha: the vaulted Urn Tomb, the Corinthian Tomb, and the three-storied Palace Tomb.

LUNCH
Enjoy a buffet-style lunch at a nearby restaurant in the upper area of Petra.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
From the ship board air-conditioned motorcoarches for the 2 hour ride through Aqaba and out into the desert to Petra. Your guided walking tour covers approximately three to five miles over uneven gravel and packed sandy stretches. A long, gradual slope leads from the Siq to the Treasury and Royal Tombs. Take in the many tombs, water channels, carved temples, gates and arches along the way.

SPECIAL NOTES
This is a strenuous walking tour and recommended only for those passengers who are physically fit.

Horses or mules are available for the approximately half-mile trip from the entrance of the site to the beginning of the Siq. From there all must walk approximately 3/4 mile through the Siq and enter into the city ruins. On the return, the horses will again be available to the site entrance. Passengers may choose to walk as the ride is not included as part of the tour. It is customary to tip the horses' owners at the end of each ride as payment for the services.
