City breaks in Egypt, Jordan & Syria

Visiting one of Egypt, Jordan or Syria's major cities for a short break is increasingly popular, and also practical with flight times from the UK of under 5 hours. The capital cities of Cairo, Amman and Damascus all have rich histories and a wealth of ancient historic sites and attractions to explore, none more so of course than the pyramids and sphinx at Gisa on the outskirts of Cairo. We can run short breaks in all of these cities, and customise them to fit around your available time and flights, also taking into account whether you would like a full, busy sightseeing itinerary, or more free time built in. Accommodation options are also varied, and include beautiful converted old merchant houses in Damascus, spa hotels by the Dead Sea just outside Amman, and luxury 5-star hotels built around former palaces in Cairo.

Customer feedback

"Wow what a fantastic time I had in Dahab. I've dived at several locations around the world and never knew how exciting the Red Sea was. Caverns, canyons and the excellent Blue Hole have made this holiday the best I've been on. Where else can I go?"

Mr. A. Rayson (tailor-made diving tour)
