This tour covers all the main sites in Egypt and Jordan. Following visits to the Pyramids, Sphinx and a city tour in Cairo, we enjoy a luxury cruise along the Nile from Aswan to Luxor. We then head via the Cairo and St. Catherine's Monastery & Mt. Sinai to Jordan and a jeep safari & Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum. From here we travel up the scenic King's Highway stopping to explore Petra, Kerak and Madaba, before finishing in Amman with a day trip to the Dead Sea and the Roman ruins at Jerash.

 

Itinerary: While Egypt's many historical sites are rightly famous, Jordan also has a lot to offer the modern traveller including historical remains from many different cultures, and beautiful scenery. We start by visiting the pyramids & sphinx and main sites in Cairo before featuring a luxury Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor. We visit St. Catherine's Monastery & Mt. Sinai, and enjoy some snorkelling, before heading to Jordan to travel up the King's Highway and visit Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea, among other sites.

You start your Egyptian adventure in Cairo with a visit one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the great pyramids at Gisa. Our next tour visits the famous Egyptian Museum, the Citadel, a couple of mosques, and the Khan-el-Khalili bazaar.

An overnight sleeper train takes you south to the beautiful town of Aswan, on the banks of the Nile just north of the Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser. Here the Nile is at its most attractive, and you have time to relax and watch feluccas sail lazily around the many small islands or experience traditional Egyptian life with a stroll along the mazy streets of the town’s colourful bazaar. We take you on a visit to the island temple of Philae and you have the option of a flight out to Abu Simbel, with its remarkable rebuilt temple to Ramses II, before beginning your cruise down the Nile towards Luxor.

You can relax by the pool and watching the world go by during the day, and enjoy different cuisines in the restaurant in the boat restaurant each evening. En route you will stop at the temples of Komombo and Edfu before finally reaching Luxor.

In Luxor you take a tour to the Pharaonic tombs in the Valleys of the Kings, visit Queen Hatchepsut and Medinat Habu temples, and also tour the vast temples of Luxor and Karnak.

From Luxor you travel back to Cairo where there is an option to visit the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, before we drive across the Suez Canal and into the Sinai peninsular where we spend a night at the foot of Mt. Sinai, next to St. Catherine's Monastery. After visiting the monastery and climbing Mt. Sinai (optional), we enjoy some spectacular snorkelling at the Blue Hole, just outside Dahab.

After crossing by ferry into Jordan, we feature an afternoon jeep safari amid the stunning desert & mountain scenery of Wadi Rum, before spending the night at a comfortable Bedouin camp. Our next stop is Petra, one of the highlights of the tour, where we have a full day tour of this world famous Nabatean city.

From Petra we head north up the scenic King's Highway to Amman, with stops to visit the crusader castle of Kerak, the intricate Byzantine mosaics at Madaba, and the peaks, churches and distant views at Mt. Nebo. We take a day trip out from Amman to bathe in the Dead Sea, and visit the Roman Ruins at Jerash. The tour finishes in Amman (Open Jaw flights are readily available to fly into Cairo and out of Amman).
