Amazing game lace where you can see the four countries Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and Saudi at this tip. You can enjoy mountains and sea view with a fresh air and enjoy historical place like the castle.

Hi, the price depends on where you stay because you book from the yacht or boats in the hotel. If you went check with the front disk in your hotel for more info. They should have daily trips twice a day or so.
