Day by Day

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day 6 Day 7 Day 8 Day 9 Day 10

Day 1: Arrival to Cairo

Welcome to beautiful, historic Cairo! We will be doing airport pickups all day today, and we recommend landing before 6 p.m. if possible. After collecting you from the airport, we’ll walk via Sky Bridge to the hotel. We’re expecting you to be tired from the journey, so we’ll take it easy today.

After some rest, we’ll have dinner as a group.

Meals: D

Hotel: Hyatt Regency

Day 2: Giza Pyramids & Sphinx with Camel Ride Included + Entrance Inside Grand Egyptian Museum Courtyard

Today is all about ancient history—and pyramids!

This morning we will explore Giza, where we’ll see the legendary Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Here, you'll ride camels to a famous panoramic viewpoint for epic pyramid shots, or, choose to purchase tickets to go inside one of the Great Pyramids.

After a day of exploring this massive complex, you’ll have some time to relax at the hotel before we have dinner as a group.

Meals: B, L, D

Hotel: Hyatt Regency Cairo

Day 3: Fly to Luxor + Tour Karnak & Luxor Temples

This morning, we’ll explore the sites and temples of Luxor's East Bank, including Karnak and Luxor Temples.

The Karnak temple complex at Luxor developed over more than 1,000 years, principally between the Twelfth and Twentieth Dynasties, and is the second most-visited complex in Egypt (second to the Great Pyramids). It was, at its peak, the largest and most important religious complex in ancient Egypt. The most significant structure, and the largest religious building ever built, is the Temple of Amun-Ra, considered to be where that god lived on earth with his wife, Mut, and son, Khonsu, who also have temples at the site.

Luxor Temple is one of the best-preserved of all of the ancient monuments containing large amounts of structure, statuary, and relief carvings that are still intact to this day, making it one of the most impressive places to visit in the Luxor area and all of Egypt.

After a morning of exploring these incredible sites, we will have lunch as a group.

Meals: B, L, D

Hotel: Hilton Luxor Resort & Spa

Day 4: Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride, Valley of the Kings & Queen Hatshepsut Temple

Today is action-packed! In the early morning, we'll be taking a sunrise hot air balloon above Luxor (weather permitting), and then exploring the sites and temples of Luxor's West Bank, including the Valley of the Kings and the temple of Queen Hatshepsut.

The Valley of the Kings is a series of tombs, and 3 of those tombs are included with your entrance ticket. Spend the morning walking through the tombs of pharaohs, or, choose to go into the tomb of King Tut (an additional entrance fee, but fascinating!).

After, we'll visit the temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut was the only female pharaoh in the history of Ancient Egypt. She came to power during the New Kingdom after the death of her father, Tuthmose I, and her half-brother and husband, Tuthmose II, who succeeded her father on the throne. Hatshepsut is the only female to rule Egypt, and she was a very successful and beloved pharaoh. Visiting her temple is always a highlight!

Meals: B, L, D

Hotel: Hilton Luxor Resort & Spa

Day 5: Fly to Amman via Cairo, Meet & Assist at Queen Alia Airport & Group Transfer to Hotel

Welcome to Jordan! Today we will meet you upon your arrival at Queen Alia International Airport and assist you with your visa to Jordan, and then walk with you outside the airport to meet our private driver.

From here, we'll continue to Amman for dinner and overnight at our hotel. We know you're probably tired from flying, so we'll keep the itinerary light today.

Meals: D

Hotel: W Hotel Amman

Day 6: Amman City Tour & Transfer to Petra with Optional Cooking Class

After breakfast at our hotel, we will check out and begin our adventure. 

We'll be exploring the Citadel and the Roman Theatre in downtown Amman, both sites that you absolutely cannot miss while visiting Amman. Depending on the time of day, you may also hear the sounds of the call to prayer, echoing from the many mosques in the city and bouncing off the hills.

Next, we’ll visit Jordan Rivers Design, a women-owned cooperative started by Queen Alia, to shop for beautiful handmade artifacts. 

Later, we’ll have lunch at a women’s co-operative, Iraq El-Amir. Here, we’ll choose a group activity for the afternoon - ceramics, organic paper making, weaving, or traditional food sampling “Mazze”.

From here we will transfer to Petra, stopping by Mt. Nebo along the way. The drive to Petra will take roughly 3 hours, and we will arrive in the late afternoon.

After arriving, transfer to the hotel and check-in. Dinner tonight is a cooking class, a great way to learn more about the region and its fascinating cuisine.

Meals: B, L, D

Hotel: Movenpic Petra

Day 7: Petra Full Day

Today, we're exploring Petra!

Spend your morning today as you wish, exploring all of the fascinating corners of this massive, mesmerizing World Wonder. Choose to hike to the Monastery, walk around to different points of interest, and enjoy this stunning wonder. Marvel at the beauty of the Lost City, the Red Rose City of Petra, exploring its many caves and tombs. Walk through the canyon and be astounded at the magnificent Treasury, the entrance guarding the ancient Nabatean city.

The group will meet later in the evening to rest and reset.

Meals: B, D

Hotel: Movenpic Petra

Day 8: Petra to Dead Sea

After breakfast at our hotel, we'll depart for our final locale of this tour: the Dead Sea!

Day 9: Free day at the Dead Sea

Today is your day to float your cares away!

There is a lot to see and do in Jordan, but this is also your vacation -- it's been jam-packed so let's relax today in the most gorgeous of places!

Lunch is on your own today, but we will have our final dinner together on-property as a group.

Packing: Sun protection (hat/sunscreen/sunglasses), comfortable walking shoes, and loose clothing are a must for this trip. Additionally you’ll want a small backpack for personal items and a scarf and/or long clothing for modest dressing. 

For entry into Egypt + Jordan, you'll need:

  • Passport
  • Visas
  • Travel Insurance*

*Note: We require proof of travel insurance for all international departures.

Will you match me? Of course! If you choose a space in a shared room but you're traveling solo, we will do our best to pair you with a roommate. Roommates are matched based on arrival time and perceived compatibility. Sharing a room is a great way to save costs, and make a new friend! However, we ask you to approach the situation with an open mind, some grace, and maybe a little humor.

While 99% our travelers are amazing, we can't guarantee that you'll hit it off with your roommate, or that your sleeping styles will be compatible.

Is sharing right for you? If you are a light sleeper, get easily irritated or just know that you need your own space, sharing a room might not be for you. Likewise, if you know that you snore, sleep with a CPAP machine or have other health conditions, sharing a room might not be the best fit.

What if I don't get along with my roommate? If you've tried but you absolutely can't get along with your roommate and need to separate, your trip leader will either swap things around, or, attempt to get you your own room. If the latter, additional charges will incur.

What if I book a double room, and you can't match me? We book a certain amount of hotel rooms before any tour, and are bound by their rules. In the event that we cannot find a roommate for you before the tour, and your room converts to a single room, there may be additional charges.

Small group trips require at least 4 people to run. We will confirm as soon as possible when the trip has met its minimum; up to 60 days before departure. For this reason, we recommend waiting until after a trip has been confirmed to purchase airfare. Any tour can be converted to a private departure when a trip does not meet its minimum. Additional costs may incur. Alternatively, apply your credit to any small-group tour departing within 12 months.
