About this event

About the tour

Known as one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, the city of Petra, capital of the Nabataean Arabs has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. Also called the "Red Rose City" because of the colour of the stone from which is it carved, the site is located 240 km south of the capital Amman and 120 km north of the red sea town of Aqaba.

People don't often realize how big Petra is! To discover it in full, I have created a series of 3 tours around this magnificent site.

In this particular tour, we'll take a walk to see the Bab al Siq, A 900m long path leading to a vast necropolis in the middle of enormous gorges. We'll then reach the Genie (Djinn) Tombs: three colossal, squared monuments that stand mightily beside the pathway. After a short walk, we will also see a carved 'Obelisk Tomb' with four pyramids perched on top as well as the water dam, and water dark tunnel. Be ready to be amazed!

Petra, the world wonder, is undoubtedly Jordan's most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction and one you shouldn't miss.

Organiser Heygo

Organiser of Petra, One of the 7 Wonders - Trail I

Heygo started as a way for co-founders John and Liam to keep exploring new places. As avid travellers themselves, they wanted to help people stay connected with the world and for those in the travel industry to continue doing what they love.

They believe that travel is an incredibly important way to break down cultural barriers and understand the world through other people’s eyes. They also recognize it is often a privilege reserved for the few. For many people, hopping on a plane half-way around the world is out of reach and comes with serious consequences for our planet’s health.

John and Liam realised that there needed to be a way to embrace the culture of other countries in an environmentally conscious way; to still travel when family obligations makes it difficult to get away; and to keep exploring even when an injury or disability means travelling is harder.

So that’s why they created Heygo - a travel specific live-streaming platform. One that would allow local guides to share the places they know best with the hope that it can bring people around the world closer together.
