Petra Wadi Rum

I am a middle aged lady planning to go to Petra and Wadi Ram from Modiin in Israel in November. Can anyone recommend a good group tour to these places.Which is better --to leave from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem or preferably from Modiin? I don't particularly want to go to Eilat.

Almost all of the tours to Petra go via Eilat. Crossing at the Allenby Bridge requires that you get a Jordanian visa in advance.

Since you are in Modi'in, the simplest and quickest way to get to Eilat is to fly from Ben-Gurion airport. Look at the "Israir" and "Arkia" websites for schedules. Otherwise you will have to go to Jerusalem or Tel-Aviv to get a bus to Eilat - a 5 hr ride. Look at the "Egged" website for information.

The tour company that receives the most recommendations on the travel forums is "Desert Eco".

Just google "Tours to Petra from Jerusalem" and a number of tour companies will be displayed.
Have a great time.

We did one last year from Jerusalem that did not go to Eliat. We first went to Jerash which was fantastic, two nights in a bedouin camp and the last day Wadi Rum. I booked with Abraham tours, and there were only 9 in our group all around the 45-65 age range
