Sail the nile, see the Sphinx and be awed by pretty in pink Petra.
From the Land of the Pharos to the land of the nomads, take a trip you'll never forget through Egypt and Jordan. Lawrence of Arabia, Indiana Jones, Tutankhamen. These destinations attract the big names, and deservedly so. Cruise the Nile, haggle the Nubian Bazaar, see the Valley of the Kings, get lost in Petra and eat your weight in tabbouleh.
The Pyramids might be hyped, but when you see them you’ll soon be saying oh mummy, I see the point (sorry)
Masks don’t come much more famous than King Tut’s golden headpiece – check it out at the incredible Egyptian Museum
Jumping on a camel to ride through the desert and visit three tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Can you get any more Egyptian?
Sleep under the stars (or in a comfortable tent) at a Bedouin-style camp in Wadi Rum
Our guides are local and know all the best secret and hidden places to check out after a day of sightseeing
Only Petra’s Treasury is stunning enough to be the temple of the Holy Grail (well, according to Indiana Jones at least), and you’ll be blown away on a full day exploring the majesty and mystery of this world wonder
Set sail on a felucca cruise along the Nile. Back in the day, these wooden boats had zero facilities, but our new pimped-out boat has western-style toilets on board
Just one of the great things about this trip is that it gives you the power. There’s free time to do whatever you want, or optional tours to show you the way. Maybe budget a little extra cash for activities that aren’t included.
Egypt can get hot in the summer months of July and August. The good news is it's mostly dry heat, and easier to handle than humidity. Wherever possible, you'll be seeing the sights in the morning before it gets too intense.
Travelling on a felucca is awesome, but it's not for everyone. You will be sharing a sleeping area with your fellow group members for the night and a shared bathroom facility on board
The thing about ancient ruins and other super old sites in the Middle East is that they usually involve walking on rocky and/or steep hillsides. But if you don’t feel up for it on a hot day then you can just sit it out, or wander along at your own pace.
Egypt nights can get chillier than you think, particularly from December to February. Remember to pack at least some warm clothes.
Some entrance fees are not included. If you wish to take part in these activities, you pay these fees as you go along.
An optional single supplement is available on this trip. Please refer to your booking agent for further information.
Please note, on the following night the Single Supplement is not available:
- Day 5: Felucca
- Day 10: Wadi Rum
