Egypt & Jordan
Oh the wonders you will see!
August 8th - 15th 2020
From the Pyramids to Petra
This bucket list itinerary gives you a unique opportunity to discover the heritage and rich history of two interesting countries, Egypt and Jordan.
Ready to cross 2 world wonders off of your bucket list?
We have paired two of the ancient world’s most incredible wonders to create an unforgettable journey. Explore the land of the Pharaohs before crossing the Sinai Peninsula to Petra, the ‘rose-red which is half as old as time’.
Start in Cairo, where a full day tour takes you to The Great Pyramids. Built between 2560 and 2540 BC, it is also the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one still standing. Jordan’s capital, Amman is a thriving, progressive city, particularly in its west. With historic sights like the Roman Theatre and King Abdullah Mosque, this is an ideal place to begin your Jordanian adventure.
After a day touring the capital, set out for Petra, the symbol of Jordan. Spend two nights here, as you’ll want plenty of time to visit this millennia old city, with famous sights including the rock-cut architecture of the Treasury, the Street of Facades and the Amphitheater.
Head out to visit Wadi Rum, the breathtaking, almost alien desert landscape made famous by Lawrence of Arabia. Finally, visit the dead sea and Roman city of Jerash.
This is truly an experience like no other!
