See the pyramids, sail the Nile and discover wonderfully-preserved reminders of the Pharaohs. You’ll discover Egypt’s rich and intriguing history as you explore the sights of buzzing Cairo, vibrant Luxor and laidback Aswan. Then, experience ancient
monuments and sacred sites in Jordan’s desert.
Home . CairoDestination Home . Cairo Meals included Hotel 4 . Barceló Cairo Pyramids, or similar Salaam Alaikum! Welcome to Egypt. You’ll be met at the airport and taken to your hotel near the Great Pyramids of Giza. A buzzing metropolis, home to at least 19 million people, Cairo gives you a great feel for Egyptian streetlife. It’s busy – almost frantic – and among the hustle and bustle, it’s an exciting blend of old world and new. Arabs call this city Umm al-Dunya (the mother of the world). There are many beautiful mosques to visit, like the Mohammed Ali Mosque in the Citadel. Or head to the oldest part of Cairo, the Babylon Fortress, to see ancient ruins. For stunning panoramic views of the capital, go up the 187-metre-high Cairo Tower. Try some street food – lamb shawarma, anyone? – or get a taste of Egyptian street life by visiting a cafe. Sit in an ahwa and sip traditional mint tea. The shisha pipe can be found in many ahwas and restaurants across Cairo. In the evening, join your guide and the rest of your group for a welcome meeting. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask hotel reception where it will take place. Please note - some flights may depart the day before.
Cairo . LuxorDestination Cairo . Luxor Meals included Breakfast, Dinner Hotel Overnight Sleeper Train, or similar Prepare to be spellbound by the ancient wonders of the Pharaohs. After checking out of our hotel, we’ll drive out to Giza, home to perhaps the greatest iconic structures ever created by man – the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Instantly familiar, yet retaining a mystique and power, getting up close to these incredible pharaonic tombs is captivating. There are over 100 pyramids in Egypt but the Great Pyramid of Giza, also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops, is a defining symbol of Egypt. With a height of 146.5 metres, it’s the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one still standing. For an additional charge, you may be able to go inside the Great Pyramid, although occasionally it may be closed to visitors. We’ll then head to the Egyptian Museum, one of the world’s greatest museums. Home to over 12,000 ancient Egyptian antiquities exhibiting many of the region’s treasures, your expert guide will take you through Egypt’s rich and fascinating dynastic history. You will then have some free time to explore on your own or you may wish to visit the Royal Mummy Room (optional and at extra cost). We will head back to the hotel, where you can freshen up in the day use room before you are transferred to the train station. You can take this time to relax, or purchase some supplies before boarding an overnight sleeper train to Luxor. Please note: Notes: The two-berth cabins are comfortable and air-conditioned. All bedding is provided onboard by the porter. Western-style toilets are located in each carriage, but we recommend bringing additional toilet paper. Keep in mind general train cleanliness may not be to the same standards you are accustomed to. An included dinner and breakfast are served on board. You may want to purchase something extra beforehand to supplement your meal, particularly if you're a vegetarian as only a single type of meal is served for dinner, which always includes meat. In rare circumstances you may be paired in your cabin with a group member of the opposite sex, depending on the group configuration. On other occasions, you might be sharing with another traveller of the same sex who may not be part of our group, again determined by the group configuration.
Luxor . Embark Nile cruiseDestination . Luxor . Embark Nile cruise Meals included Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Hotel M/S Nile Dolphin cruise, or similar After an early breakfast, the train rolls into Luxor, a vibrant place with an excellent bazaar. From the spectacular temple complex of Karnak to the Valley of the Kings, Luxor is full of wonderfully-preserved reminders of the Pharaohs. You will explore the magnificent Karnak Temple, which is perhaps the most impressive of all the ancient Pharaohs' monumental works. One of the world's most celebrated temple complexes, Karnak is a house of the gods built over a period of some 200 years. Your guided tour of this vast temple of impressive pylons, obelisks and chapels will reveal its finest sections, such as the Avenue of Sphinxes and the Great Temple of Amun. Later you’ll be transferred to your Nile cruise boat, your home for the next four nights. Feel free to relax by the pool on the boat or explore the town. The rest of the day is yours – perhaps shop in the excellent bazaar (open quite late) or experience the atmosphere of a local teahouse. Enjoy cruising the Nile for four nights between Aswan and Luxor, with all the comforts you would expect from a five-star floating hotel. Enjoy the view of the Nile, the palms and the desert from your room. OPTIONAL TOUR - LUXOR TEMPLE Constructed over hundreds of years by Amenhotep III, Ramses II, Tutankhamun, and other pharaohs, Luxor Temple was the largest and most significant religious centre in ancient Egypt. In what was then Thebes, Luxor Temple was “the place of the First Occasion,” where the god Amon experienced rebirth during the pharaoh’s annually reenacted coronation ceremony. Today, remains of this vast complex include the colossal Great Colonnade Hall, almost 61 meters long, with 28 twenty-one-foot-high columns, its decoration largely undertaken by Tutankhamun around 1330 B.C. Many of the temple’s sidewalls were torn down after the time of the pharaohs and recycled for building materials.
LuxorDestination . Luxor Meals included Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Hotel M/S Nile Dolphin cruise, or similar We’ll start early with the spectacular royal burial site of the Valley of the Kings. Buried under the arid hills here are over 60 tombs of pharaohs, many richly decorated with reliefs and paintings. With your tour leader, explore this sprawling and spectacular place, where the pharaohs of the New Kingdom (16th to 11th century BC) were secretly interred for all eternity, and where discoveries are still being made. Tutankhamun’s final resting place is also located here, and you’ll have free time to visit it as an optional tour. Your guide will explain the history and legends of these remarkable people, their funerary rites, and the significance of the many paintings and hieroglyphics, still well preserved in the deepest tombs. You will visit three of the most interesting royal tombs and then continue to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, a stunning colonnaded building set against high cliffs that create a spectacular natural amphitheatre. One of Egypt’s greatest queens, she built this temple to prove her importance – the scale and elegance of her temple certainly proves a point! Our final stop is the Colossi of Memnon, two 17-metre-high statues on Luxor’s west bank. Carved from granite blocks, they represent the Pharaoh Amenhotep III and were once part of an impressive colonnade. Enjoy lunch upon your return to the boat. There is time to relax on deck or in your cabin before you set sail for Edfu.
Edfu . Kom Ombo . AswanDestination . Edfu . Kom Ombo . Aswan Meals included Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Hotel M/S Nile Dolphin cruise, or similar Today we’ll be moored near Edfu. This city is best known for its beautifully preserved temple dedicated to Horus, the falcon-headed god. We’ll continue travelling upriver, with free time relaxing on the sundeck and taking in the surrounding sights, including lush riverbanks against a backdrop of desert hills. We’ll arrive at Kom Ombo Temple in the afternoon. Dedicated to the gods Sobek and Haroeris, this unusual double temple was constructed during the Ptolemaic period, which lasted from 108 to 47 BC. Set dramatically on the banks of the Nile, 47km north of Aswan and 168km south of Luxor, the soaring, chunky columns of the Great Temple of Kom Ombo are a magnificent sight as you arrive from the river. Today, Kom Ombo may be a sleepy agricultural backwater surrounded by sugar cane fields, but its prime position along the Nile once made it one of Upper Egypt’s most important centres. Wander through the temple’s colonnades, gazing up at scenes of kingly propaganda, and you’ll catch a feel of this glorious history for yourself. The temple is well preserved, especially detail on the murals and columns. One unique engraving is thought to be among the first representations of medical and surgical instruments. Don’t miss the mummified crocodiles on display in the Crocodile Museum attached to the temple. We’ll board the boat again at around 6pm and continue to Aswan, arriving at around 9.30pm. Please note: The only mode of transport available to visit the Edfu temple is by locally managed horse and carriages. As a responsible travel-focused business, animal welfare is extremely important to us and we want to ensure that we are not promoting any activities where the working animals are not properly cared for. Unfortunately, some operators of the Horse and Carriages have been found to be in breach of our animal welfare guidelines and it is, for this reason, we will no longer including the visit the Edfu Temple. In addition to the animal welfare concerns, we have had a substantial amount of feedback suggesting that the experience itself is quite uncomfortable due to the pushy nature of the vendors and local suppliers outside the site. While we recommend that you do not use the horse and carriage to visit the Temple, the decision is ultimately up to you. Edfu is an included port stop on the Nile River cruise schedule and is an optional tour. OPTIONAL TOUR - EDFU TEMPLE This temple is perhaps the best preserved in the whole country. The scale is incredibly impressive, with soaring sandstone walls covered in reliefs and hieroglyphics. You’ll pass through the Grand Temple entranceway into a colossal courtyard ringed with 32 towering columns, each richly decorated with patterns, and once the site of a great altar. The sense of awe that comes from touring this temple is incredible.
AswanDestination . Aswan Meals included Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Hotel M/S Nile Dolphin cruise, or similar Early this morning we’ll drive to Abu Simbel, near the southern Egyptian border. Often referred to as the Temple of Ramses II, the two enormous sandstone structures at Abu Simbel were built in 1255 BC by Ramses II to commemorate himself and his favourite wife Nefertari. The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Nubian Monuments. The larger temple, dedicated to three major Egyptian deities, features four large statues of Ramses II on its facade, while the smaller temple is dedicated to the love goddess Hathor, with statues designed to embody Nefertari. Set on the banks of the artificial Lake Nasser, the structures were once in danger of being flooded with the construction of the Aswan High Dam. They were saved by an extensive project to cut the temples into pieces and move them to higher ground, where they are seen today. This afternoon, we will enjoy a sailboat ride around the islands in a traditional felucca, stopping off at the botanical gardens on Kitchener's Island. Tonight, you may wish to partake in the optional Nubian dinner. OPTIONAL TOUR - NUBIAN DINNER Experience modern Nubian culture first-hand with a visit to Elephantine Island. On your visit you’ll join a Nubian family for dinner and experience true traditional Nubian hospitality. Here, you will encounter Nubian homes, traditional food and an unforgettable insight into the daily life of a Nubian. This is a rare and memorable experience, giving you the chance to become fully immersed in the local culture.
Aswan . CairoDestination Aswan . Cairo Meals included Breakfast Hotel 4 . Barceló Cairo Pyramids, or similar Your Nile cruise draws to a close this morning as we disembark for the last time in Aswan. You’ll be transferred to Aswan International Airport for the short flight back to Cairo (approximately one hour and 15 minutes) where you will be met and taken to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to see more of this exciting city.
Cairo . AmmanDestination Cairo . Amman Meals included Breakfast Hotel 4 . Geneva Hotel Amman, or similar You’ll bid farewell to Egypt and head for stunning Jordan today. At the appropriate time, you will be transferred to the airport to board your flight. On arrival at Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to your hotel. Jordan is cosmopolitan and contemporary, yet steeped in biblical history. Pick up a coffee from a cafe and partner it with an ara’yes, a toastie filled with spicy mincemeat. Head to the Old Town’s Roman Amphitheatre, find fine culture at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, look down on the city from the hilltop Temple of Hercules, or begin your trip with a relax in a Turkish bath house.
Amman . Dead SeaDestination Amman . Dead Sea Meals included Breakfast Hotel 4 . Ramada Resort by Wyndham Dead Sea, or similar Start the day exploring this bustling modern city. The historical places are located downtown, where we will visit the Citadel with remains dating from the Romans to the early Islamic period. Then we pay a visit to the Archaeological Museum, housing an excellent collection of several Dead Sea Scrolls. We stroll via the Souq, getting an idea of everyday life, then head to the Roman Theater which holds 6000 seats, dated back to the 2nd century. Afterwards you will have a short drive south-west (approximately 1 hour) to the Dead Sea. Don’t forget to pack your swim gear, because in the afternoon you can wash off the dust with a dip like no other. Named for the dearth of life in its waters, this lake is so intensely salty that the density of the water makes swimming and getting underneath the surface very difficult. Floating on the surface without any sort of lilo makes for a unique pleasure though. Grab a handful of the shoreline’s mud and slick it over your body on the way back in – it’s full of nutrient-rich natural minerals.
Dead Sea . PetraDestination Dead Sea . Petra Meals included Breakfast Hotel 4 . Petra Panorama Hotel, or similar After breakfast, we’ll head to Petra, referred to as the Rose City for the colour of the stone out of which it is carved. Then onto Madaba, about a 45 minute drive, which is home to a number of fine Byzantine mosaics. We’ll visit the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George and see an impressive mosaic map of the Holy Land that clearly depicts Palestine and Lower Egypt around 550 AD. It’s then about a three hour drive to the ancient village at Dana, on the edge of the Dana Biosphere Reserve, where local artisans sell attractive silver jewellery and charms. Later, the ancient Crusader castle at Shobak makes an imposing sight as you drive up to it. It was originally built to protect the eastern flank of the Latin Kingdom and its trade routes to the sea before it fell to Saladin in 1189. Stroll the site and discover a small chapel, original gatehouse and find out where a long, dark secret passage leads. We’ll arrive in Petra at night.
PetraDestination Petra Meals included Breakfast Hotel 4 . Petra Panorama Hotel, or similar Petra is justifiably on most people’s lists of ‘must-visit’ places. It’s the jewel of Jordan, the lost city of the biblical Nabateans, an impressive series of tombs and dwellings hidden behind ornate facades carved directly into the rock. The iconic Petra view – the Treasury’s glorious façade, glimpsed from the narrow cleft known as the Siq – is arguably the single most striking sight of the entire region. It’s almost surreal when you first see exquisite craftsmanship against such stark scenery. The Siq leads through the rock and is sometimes only a few metres wide, with walls soaring up to 180 metres on either side, and it is impossible not to imagine the armies and traders who made their way down here in ancient times. Petra's greatest surprise, however, is its size. With your guide you will explore the old Roman road, amphitheatre and several old tombs. You will also climb up to the second beautiful façade of the Monastery, from where you will have a magnificent view of the entire site. This is a memorable day exploring a truly extraordinary destination, a highlight of your trip. There is a cafeteria on site, where you can enjoy a light lunch. The rest of the day will be at your leisure – perhaps take the chance to witness Petra by night. Seeing the Treasury plaza lit up by flickering candle light while Bedouin music plays is a magical experience.
Petra . Wadi RumDestination Petra . Wadi Rum Meals included Breakfast, Dinner Hotel Hilawi Camp Wadi Rum , or similar Petra is an incredible site and almost demands more than one visit. If you want to see more, then get up early to soak in the dramatic setting, walk to extra sites like the High Place of Sacrifice, and just try to comprehend the history and life of this city that was once able to challenge the might of Rome. We’ll head into this desolate, romantic protected area in rather rickety old jeeps, operated by the local Bedouin community. This is an attempt by the Jordanian Government to bring much-needed income into this region – an initiative we also support. After lunch in the small village of Wadi Rum and a browse around the excellent and informative visitors’ centre, you will visit several of Wadi Rum's distinctive rock formations and soak in the vast silence and spectacular desert landscapes. Wadi Rum is a truly beautiful place with towering sandstone mountains. The wind-sculpted rock formations change hue throughout the day from sunrise to sunset. Wadi Rum is probably best known for its connection with the enigmatic British officer T.E. Lawrence, who was based here during the Great Arab Revolt of 1917-18. Much of David Lean's movie on his exploits, 'Lawrence of Arabia', was actually filmed in Wadi Rum. The Bedouins live in scattered camps throughout the area. You will enjoy an evening with them at one of their camps, which is set in an amazing location.
Wadi Rum . AmmanDestination Wadi Rum . Amman Meals included Breakfast Hotel 4 . Geneva Hotel Amman, or similar After waking up in the unique surrounds of the Bedouin camp this morning, you will enjoy a walk around the area before scaling one of the large dunes to enjoy sensational views of the surrounding area. Keen photographers will be delighted. You will then take 4WDs from your camp back to the main entrance, which is opposite the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the mountain named after Lawrence of Arabia’s book. The visitors’ centre here is also a great spot to buy some jewellery and handicrafts, mostly made by a women's cooperative that is aimed at supporting traditional local industries. Drive on to Madaba (approximately 4 hours), home to a number of fine Byzantine mosaics. Visit the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George and see an impressive mosaic map of the Holy Land that clearly depicts Palestine and Lower Egypt around 550 AD. In the same area is Mt. Nebo where Moses is believed to first laid eyes on the Promise Land. We then continue to back to Amman.
Amman . Jerash . AmmanDestination Amman . Jerash . Amman Meals included Breakfast Hotel 4 . Geneva Hotel Amman, or similar After breakfast, there is a short drive north (approximately one hour) to Jerash, once one of the grandest ancient Roman cities in the world. These Greco-Roman ruins are impressive. A favourite of the emperor Hadrian, it has a striking collection of archways and theatres, baths, public buildings and colonnaded streets, and is a beautiful place to spend a day exploring. Grand iconic columns encircle the city’s centrepiece, the Oval Plaza, a wonderfully atmospheric place to linger after exploring Jerash’s riches. Return to Amman for a free afternoon at leisure.
Amman . HomeDestination Amman . Home Meals included Breakfast Hotel N/A Enjoy one last delicious breakfast this morning, before your adventure comes to an end. You’ll be transferred to the airport to board your flight home.

As a general rule, porterage is not included, therefore at all times, you are expected to handle your own luggage where help may not be available. This particular tour is categorised as a “Superior":
Superior – Active Tour: A very good level of fitness and mobility is required for you to enjoy all aspects of the itinerary, as this is considered a fast-paced tour. While there is some free time scheduled either in the morning or afternoon, there are many full days of sightseeing with minimal rest and some early starts. You will be required to walk up and down stairs, get on and off the coach and participate in all scheduled sightseeing that may be conducted on uneven ground and terrain. Any physical ailments you may have must be disclosed at the time of booking to determine your suitability. If you have any form of walking aids, other than a walking stick or hiking poles, then this tour is not suitable.
It is the traveller’s responsibility to ensure they have a valid passport. The passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months from your intended date of return.
Australian passport holders do not require a visa to enter the European Union for a stay up to 90 days.
Some countries require e-visa . You will be able to obtain your E-visa when you have your tour documents indicating your date of entry into a country, approximately 120 days prior to departure.
Please note, the ETA has limited to 60 days validity from the date of arrival. We can assist you over the phone as best as possible, however additional fee of $300 will be charged if you want us to submit an application on your behalf.

A friendly reminder that tipping is not included in your package. At the commencement of your tour, you will be asked to provide tipping to your guide towards a ‘kitty’, which is then used towards the guide tipping for the services of helpers, hotel staff, restaurants and airport porterage. We recommend AUD$3 per person, per day, to be paid in local currency. Please note that this tipping is not for the guide or driver, merely for the guide to tip the services of other local workers during your tour. While not made compulsory, if you choose not to contribute to the kitty it means that the guide is tipping for these services out of their own pocket. Your cooperation in this instance is most appreciated.
Further, tips for your guide and driver will be collected at the conclusion of their services. To remove the uncertainty and stress of not knowing how much is appropriate to tip we recommend AUD$6-10 per person per day for your guide and AUD$3-5 per person per day for your driver to be paid in local currency. The amount you wish to contribute is dependent on the services received and at the complete discretion of the guest. Thank you for your understanding.
Any other tipping, such as tips for the camera and video fees, bathroom attendants or hotel porters that are taking luggage to your room, is at your discretion as are gratuities for additional requested special services. We encourage passengers to have a supply of small denominations of local currency to distribute for personal tipping.
Please note that all Tours and Packages are subject to availability and all prices are set. Any booking valued at or less than $1,000 must be paid in full amount after booking is made. Some airfares or services must be paid in full at the time of booking.
