From ancient Pyramids and deluxe Nile River cruises to bustling souks and glorious Roman ruins

Egypt and the Middle East is an intoxicating mix of cultures, ancient treasures and exquisite scenery. History comes alive in major cities all across the region. Luxor, a hub for Nile cruising, has often been referred to as “the world’s greatest open air museum”, whilst the age-old burial tombs of powerful Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings are incredible to explore.

The Middle East is a hive of culture and history. Petra and the ancient city of Jerash remain Jordan’s greatest Treasures, and across the salt-filled waters of the Dead Sea lies Israel and the Holy Land, a fascinating mix of religions and cities. Jerusalem and Bethlehem hold a wealth of hidden treasures and religious meaning. Discover Mount Zion, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial site.

A double-page spread is devoted to Oman. This captivating country is filled with wondrous cities and sights, deserts and mountains. Our 3 day Nature’s Bounty tour combines the stunning coastal Ras Al Jinz Scientific Centre with the mountain oasis town of Nizwa. Watch baby turtles come in to nest for the night in the Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve and explore the stunning red and white Wahiba sand dunes before visiting the breathtaking Al Hajjar Mountains.

Due to the proximity of these Middle Eastern countries, we highly recommend a 3 week stay, visiting 2 or 3 countries to gain a real understanding of the different cultures. Our 15 day Egypt and Jordan tour combines the best sites of both countries, and includes a classic Egyptian cruise down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan. Our packages are designed to be taken on a private basis for two people and our experienced travel specialists can tailor-make the perfect itinerary for you.
