Pyramids to Petra SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Wonderfully chaotic and always colourful, Cairo's dazzling array of museums, mosques and markets are a fascinating mixture of modern city and ancient wonders.
Situated on the banks of the Nile, the Nubian city of Aswan has been Egypt's southern gateway to Africa and an important trading centre since ancient times.
Once the lifeblood of an ancient civilisation, cruise the iconic Nile on a traditional felucca and spend a night sleeping on deck under the stars.
From the spectacular temple complex of Karnak to the extraordinary hieroglyphs of the Valley of the Kings, Luxor is full of wonderfully preserved reminders of the Pharaohs.
Travel back to Egypt's capital. Uncover peaceful Coptic Cairo before moving on to the vibrant spiritual heart of the Islamic Cairo district.
Full of weird and beautiful lunar-like rock formations, Wadi Rum is home to some of the most sublime desert landscape on the planet.
Hewn out of the rose-coloured rock face, the ancient city of Petra is one of the Middle East's most spectacular destinations.
Famous for its Ottoman-style houses and beautiful Byzantine-era mosaics, the historical town of Madaba has a friendly village atmosphere.

Pyramids to Petra, May 2014
Fantastic. A very well organised trip with a great combo of touristy experiences and local experiences. Alexandria needs to be revised a waste of time.

Pyramids to Petra, April 2014
The trip was good but the re-route due to the conflict in the Sinai peninsula was a waste of time driving and going to the Dana nature reserve. Due to the re-route there was extra driving to and from Amman/Jeresh since we skipped Aqaba and Mt Sinai peninsula. Dana center... It was very disappointing and not even remotely a comparable exchange. i made a recommendation to Amr and Mohammed that we receive a greater discount if we want to take this part of the trip over. Not going to the Red sea and sleeping in the huts was a great disappointment. Dana was a lackluster setting and the accommodations were very basic.
