I will be in Eilat in February and was thinking of "hopping" over to Petra.
It seems that 1 day tours are not enough time (only about 4 hours in Petra), so was thinking of doing a 2 day tour.
Any suggestions / comments on how to do it myself (getting to Petra, sleeping at Petra, returning to Eilat). Specifically the transportation back and forth and the border crossings are what I am interested in.
I read in this forum that guides are not really needed to see Petra, so I would do it on my own.
Thanks to all.
