What our specialists say...

Combining two magical countries, this itinerary incorporates some of the world's most iconic sights in one comprehensive trip. Beginning in Jordan, the impressive Roman site of Jerash can be visited from Amman. Next it's on to mythical Petra, a Modern Wonder of the World offering an unrivalled combination of history, scenery and culture. Via a night at the Dead Sea, the trip moves on to Cairo's pyramids, museum and mosques. This is all put firmly in context on a Nile cruise to discover the myriad of Pharaonic sites between Luxor and Aswan, before the trip climaxes at the Red Sea.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Amman
  • Petra
  • The Dead Sea
  • Amman
  • Cairo
  • Aswan
  • Luxor
