I have just read last year`s thread between Art from Korea and the folks who answered his query, but he didn`t report back on his visit to Petra.
We`d like to hear from anyone who has input/experience with visiting Petra from Israel.
Does anyone have experiences with Kibbutz Eilat? (It apparently isn`t possible to contact them directly - there is an automatic reservation page, but no email, and the phone number is just a recording).
We have found some packaged tours to Petra, but prefer to be on our own.
What about these ``bordering crossing fees`` - what`s up with that anyway?
How long does it take to get from the Rabin crossing to Petra? I know we have to take a taxi because the car rental contract doesn`t permit the car to be driven across borders; is the taxi fare from Rabin Crossing to Petra still $75?
How long does it take to drive from the Rabin Crossing back to Eilat - or is there a budget-priced accommodation closer to the border?
