Discover the new modern wonders of the world.
Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean caravan-city, situated between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia. Petra is half-built, half-carved into the rock, and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It is one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, where ancient Eastern traditions blend with Hellenistic architecture.
Avoid the crowds and travel in style to this new modern wonder of the world.
Devised for people who appreciate the highest standards, our charming English speaking driver and guide will collect you from your hotel in one of our luxury vehicles and take you on a private tour of the The Monastery at Petra.
We specialise in unique experiences and will happily tailor make your trip to be a truly 'once in a lifetime' experience.
New7Wonders of the World (2000–2007) was an initiative started in 2000 as a Millennium project to choose Wonders of the World from a selection of 200 existing monuments.
