Travel through Egypt and Jordan and become acquainted with traditional Middle Eastern culture
Make like Arabian merchants of old and embark on a Middle Eastern expedition from the chaotic streets of Cairo to the steadied atmosphere of Amman. Wander around the legendary Pyramids of Giza, unravel the mystery of the Sphinx and set off down river on a Nile felucca cruise. Weave a course through the ancient caravan route town of Aswan, soak up some rays on Dahab's golden sands and trek to the top of much fabled Mt Sinai. Then cross the Gulf of Aqaba into Jordan, witness the dramatic desert landscapes of Wadi Rum and be awed by the temples of Petra. Far more than simply a sparse region of sand, pyramids and camels, this trip delves into the cultures of these ancient and enigmatic nations.

What's included in this trip
Egypt & Jordan Experience SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Wonderfully chaotic and always colourful, Cairo is a fascinating mixture of modern city and ancient wonders.
From the spectacular temple complex of Karnak to the Valley of the Kings, Luxor is full of wonderfully preserved reminders of the Pharaohs.
Experience the ancient wonders of the Valley of the Kings. Just watch your step - over 60 pharaohs are (or were) buried under the surrounding hills. Hop on board a riverboat and begin a cruise down the famed Nile.
The Nile, Elephantine Island and white-sailed feluccas: welcome to Aswan. This Nubian city is Egypt's southern gateway to Africa and an important market town - take time here to check out one of the country's best bazaars.
By far the largest city in Africa, Cairo is a bustling metropolis with an abundance of noise and energy in its streets and markets.
Once a simple Bedouin fishing village, Dahab has transformed into a popular tourist town, luring travellers with its excellent diving.
The holy site where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments, the summit of Mt Sinai provides glorious views of the surrounding desert.
Blessed with idyllic beaches and world-class dive spots, the resort town of Aqaba is Jordan's seaside playground and a fun place to chill out.
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 Nabataean city of Petra is one of the Middle East's most spectacular destinations, and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Amman offers a fascinating mix of ancient sites and modern culture to explore.
