Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Amman. Upon arrival into Amman you'll be met at the airport and driven to your hotel.

  • This morning you drive up north to explore the Roman ruins of Jerash with a local guide. You have the afternoon at leisure back in Amman — explore the city under your own steam.

  • Travel along the 5,000-year-old King's Highway to Petra stopping en route at Mount Nebo, with its spectacular views over the Dead Sea; the Christian mosaics of Madaba; and the crusader castle of Kerak.

  • Today you'll enjoy a full day guided tour of Petra. This will probably be one of the highlights of your trip.

  • One day is never enough to fully take in the wonders of Petra, so you have an extra day to explore independently.

  • Beginning your journey back north, you'll stop to experience the unique charms of the Dead Sea, with one night at one of the luxurious hotels. On the way you'll enjoy a guided jeep tour of the vast, stunning landscapes of Wadi Rum.

  • In the morning you'll be driven to Amman Airport for a flight to Cairo. Here you'll be greeted and transferred to your hotel in the city.

  • This morning you'll be met at your hotel by your private guide for a full day tour of the pyramids at Giza, Memphis and Saqqara.

  • After breakfast you'll be taken to the airport in time for a short flight to Aswan, where you'll be greeted and driven to your cruise ship in time for lunch. In the afternoon visit Philae Temple, the High Dam and the Unfinished Obelisk.
