Sharm-el-Sheikh/Egypt to Petra/Jordan

Can anyone tell me how to get to Petra from Sharm-el-Sheikh. Are there any organized tours or can I take a bus to Aquaba and on to Petra? Thanks a lot for your advice. Rose

When I was on the Sinai Peninsula in '94 there was a large ferry that ran from Nuweiba (up the East Coast of the Sinai) to Aqaba. According to my Knopf guide it says that it runs daily. There should be a bus from Sharm El-Sheik to Nuweiba.

I just got back from Sharm-el-Sheikh Saturday. There are organized 1 day tours to Petra by airplane. I believe the price is around $370.00 and you fly to Petra in the morning, tour Petra and then return to Sharm-el-Sheikh in the evening.

Rose, We were in Petra in April. I suggest that you stay 2 nights there, because you need a full day to be in Petra. We spent 8 hours there and I think you would be pretty rushed to see it all in just a few hours.
