2010 September - October Egypt and Jordan.

Egypt is a land of superlatives: the largest and most ancient temple complexes in the world ... the grandest, most inspiring pyramids ... the priceless treasure of Tutankhamun ... and some of the friendliest, most welcoming people. Explored the kaleidoscopic city that is Cairo and  Pyramids of Giza. And sailed for seven nights along the Nile, where daily riverside life unfolds as it has for countless centuries, and where time stands still in glorious temples. 

Continue our trip with 7 days in Jordan including a stay in Amman and a visit to 2,000 year-old Petra, considered by many to be the eighth wonder of the world. Also Mount Nebo and Wadi Rum National Park.
