Also included here are tours that spend time in Egypt doing overnight felucca sailboat trips and desert jeep safaris & camps.The overall comfort level is still good, but you should expect some more basic nights.

If you’re looking to enjoy some ancient Egypt tours and to explore the highlights of Jordan in the same holiday, then our Ancient Encounters tour could be ideal. We start with Egypt pyramid tours, the sphinx, and Egyptian Museum in Cairo before heading to Aswan to visit the beautiful island temple at Philae and Aswan Dam. You can also visit the amazing temples to Ramses II at Abu Simbel. You will then start your traditional Felucca cruise down the Nile on your way to Luxor in the Nile Valley. Here you will visit some amazing temples and the tombs of the Valley of the Kings before heading the Red Sea for some relaxation and snorkelling. Egypt’s Red Sea has incredible diving, snorkelling, and amazing seafood and has loads of fun activities such as quad biking, kite boarding, windsurfing and horse and camel riding. We then fly into Jordan for a full tour of the main sites, including a jeep safari and a night in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum.
