Sights Visited on This Tour

Home of the Ajlun Castle built in 1184, the town has great examples of Islamic architecture. Ajlun Archaeological Museum has all sorts of artefacts from the region.

Mediterranean port city in Egypt. During the Hellenistic period, it was home to a lighthouse ranking among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World as well as a storied library.

The modern and ancient capital of Jordan is one of the oldest inhabited cities. The city's modern buildings blend amazingly with the remnants of ancient civilizations.

Sunniest city of Egypt and a popular touristic stop for many cruises. The local market here is an excellent place to do some shopping and to find Egyptian fresh spices.

Cairo is the sprawling capital city of Egypt, located on the banks of the Nile River, known for its rich history, vibrant culture, and bustling city life.

“Gold” in Arabic, the city’s name was inspired from the golden sands by the Red Sea coast. Dahab offers Oceanside dinners and crystal-clear waters for diving and snorkeling.

Dead Sea is a 30 minute drive from Amman and you reach this unique spot in Jordan. It brings a sense of unreality to any traveler passing through.

Edfu has the most complete and best-preserved temple in Egypt, the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus, which was constructed between 237 BC and 57 BC

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and the only one still remaining to this day. An absolute must see.

Less than an hour drive from Amman takes you 2000 years back in time. Jerash hosts the best preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world.

Kom Ombo means ‘hill of the gold’ crowned with Temple of Komombo. The temple is unusual as one side is dedicated to the god Haroesis and the other side to Sobek.

A top travel destination in Egypt with a wealth of historic monuments and buildings bringing Egypt’s fabled past to life. Luxor is called the world’s greatest open air museum.

The incredible Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is described as ‘one of the most precious cultural properties of mankind's cultural heritage'.

Philae Temple, a beautiful temple complex is one of the most picturesque in all of Egypt. It sits on Aglika Island just south of the old Aswan Dam.

Sakkara is a vast ancient burial ground in Egypt, located about 30 kilometers south of Cairo, and is known for its remarkable collection of pyramids and tombs.

Shobak is a Crusader castle on the eastern side of the Arabah, perched on the side of a rocky, conical mountain looking out over fruit trees below.

The 42m long obelisk was left unfinished when some cracks appeared, but had this obelisk been completed, it would have been the heaviest, weighing nearly 1100 tons!

Absolutely stunning in its natural beauty, Wadi Rum summarizes the romance of the desert. You may meet some friendly Bedouins living close by.
