Ancient City of Petra - Day Trip to Jordan from Eilat

On the voucher I read, you could not bring food or drinks, water included. The Israelian guide urged us to buy water before passing the border though, because it was life vital. So, we did buy some bottles from a machine on the Israelian side and it was no problem at all. ...Inge B., Netherlands – See more reviews
