More about Egypt Discover Egypt

Sure, you've seen photos of the pyramids and watched The Mummy movie, but nothing you can read or view will prepare you for the real-life thrill of experiencing Egypt! Egypt connects North Africa with the Middle East, but it feels like a world of its own. Of course, it's all about the historic monuments. From the colossal Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, to Luxor's rich Karnak Temple and the mind-blowing Valley of the Kings. Cairo is the capital city and the first thing you should allow time for is visiting the Egyptian Museum. It's the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East and houses the world's most impressive collection of Pharaonic antiquities. Many travellers regret not spending longer here, so make sure you put this high on your list. The second must-do experience is wandering around Khan El-Khalili. This 14th century market is a complete attack on the senses and bold introduction to Egyptian life. As well as being a thriving shopping area - selling everything from silverware and antiques, to spices, incense and souvenirs - it's a hub of cafes that serve traditional Egyptian food, a cultural melting pot and chaotic shapshot of medieval Cairo meeting modern day Egypt. You're also not far from Al-Hussein Mosque and Al-Azhar market.

More about Jordan

The one thing you probably know about Jordan is its famous ancient city of Petra. The archaeological site and the magnificent Treasury building is something you won't want to miss, but here are three other places in Jordan that our travellers rave about:
  1. On the highest hill in Amman you'll find the Citadel. The hill was a fortress for thousands of year and archaeologists have found artefacts from the Bronze Age. Two of the most impressive remains are the Temple of Hercules and the Ummayad Palace.
  2. Wadi Rum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in southern Jordan. The 74,000-hectare property is a rich and varied desert landscape of narrow gorges, dramatic cliffs, 20,000 rock carvings and a strong history of human occupation that dates back 12,000 years.
  3. The Dead Sea is actually a lake that's bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. The 'sea' sits 400 metres below sea level and the water is nearly 10 times more salty than most oceans. Aptly named because nothing can live in the water, that doesn't put off humans and bathing is must. The high salt levels make floating a breeze and the mineral-rich mud is believed to have therapeutic qualities that will make your skin shine!
Prepare to discover stunning cultural and natural wonders on an amazing Egypt and Jordan small group tour. This epic adventure is loaded with impressive sights and inclusions, like 5-star accommodation and most meals so that you can travel safely. From the ancient treasures along the Nile River to a magical desert safari in Wadi Rum and the gorgeous Rose City of Petra, this journey really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

This independent city stay gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace and the flexibility to visit the sights that interest you most. Of course, a trip to Egypt wouldn't be complete without visiting the pyramids, so we've included a great local tour of Giza and the Sphinx.

It has extensive displays that help put the incredible history of Egypt into perspective.
