Ancient RuinsRich with ancient architectural treasures and remarkable monuments, Egypt is a destination unique to the world. Escorted by a fully qualified Egyptologist, touch and explore the pyramids, emblems to a country and a source of fascination for humankind for thousands of years. Uncover their history at the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, old city Memphis and the original step pyramids of Saqqara on the 24-day Epic Egypt, Jordan and Israel tour. Observe the Tomb of King Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings on one of our Egypt tours, the 17-day Egypt and Jordan Adventure.
In Jordan, explore the legendary lost city of Petra filled with ancient temples, tombs and caves. Admire the red rose city carved into the sandstone rock and the Treasury, the first historical building within the site. For the avid explorer, discover more with the option to walk up to The Monastery, a huge carved temple reached by approximately 800 steps.
Delve into the past with a visit to the holy city of Jerusalem, Israel's capital. Here you will see The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a place of great importance in faith and religion as it is believed to have been built around the sites of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. In the Old City, the Western Wall is also a site not to be missed.
Desert Dreams and Salt WaterThe unique, lunar-like landscape of the desert in Jordan has to be seen to be believed. Enjoy an enriching Bedouin camp experience in Wadi Rum where you will savour the flavours of a traditional Arabic feast and drive through the sand in a Jeep. Learn more about astrology with a guide as you gaze into a sky dazzling with stars.
From the Wadi Rum Desert, visit the Dead Sea, known for being the lowest point on earth. Spanning over 600 kilometres, this inland lake is rich with thermal minerals and nearly 10 times saltier than the ocean. The natural health benefits of the water and mud can be experienced through the Ma’in Hot Springs. Enhance your relaxation with the 15-day Jordan and Israel Discovery.
