Petra, which today is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, was the capital of the ancient Nabatean Kingdom. This long lost city, carved entirely into rose-red sandstone rocks, is a mystic and magical place, an eternal tribute to a lost civilization.

In the end the Siq reveals the drama of Petra's most recognizable monument, the glorious Treasury building.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
