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 explore the Street of Facade, which is the name given to the row of monumental Nabataean tombs carved in the southern cliff face. At the end of the Street of Facades’ necropolis, we'll take a look at the monumental theatre, proof that Petra was also a true "city of the living". We'll then move on to discover the series of large mausoleums rising majestically and overlooking the centre of Petra called "Royal Tombs before ending our tour at the Great Temple, one of the key sites in the Nabataean city.

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 II

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.
