Experiences

Discover the famous Red Rose City of Petra: Embark on a guided tour of Petra with free time. Back in 300 BC, Petra was the capital of the prosperous Nabatean Kingdom. Swiss explorer Jean Louis Burckhardt famously wrote about it in his diary. “It's one of the most elegant remains of antiquity existing.” He penned this when he discovered the site in 1812. It's easy to see why - Petra is simply breathtaking. It is also known as the 'Red Rose City' due to the colour of the stone from which it was carved. However, the site is best known for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system. 

Sleep in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum: Sleep under the stars and experience the magic of the Wadi Rum desert with a night in a private, Bedouin-style camp. The nomadic tribes and clans of the Middle Eastern deserts are known as Bedouins.

DAY 14: Wadi Rum - Madaba - Mt. Nebo - Dead Sea - Amman

Next, it’s time for another highlight of the tour - a visit to the Dead Sea! Enjoy time to swim and relax in the salty waters. Finally, return to Amman for an included dinner this evening.

Experiences

Explore Mount Nebo: According to the Old Testament, Mount Nebo is where Moses lived out his final days and saw the promised land. For this reason, Mount Nebo is a religious site of great importance. It also acts as a fantastic viewing platform from which to gain sweeping views of the Dead Sea and even Jerusalem on a clear day!

Swim in the Dead Sea: The Dead Sea is actually not a sea at all, but a lake, around 30% of which is made up with salt. It is also the lowest place on earth, at 417 feet below sea level. The water's properties are said to cure various skin conditions. It may also relieve respiratory ailments. The lake's mud is used in spa treatments at the hotels along its shore.

Amazing Adventure
All the places we visited were incredible, a real once in a lifetime experience! The temples, historical sites and tombs were fantastic and exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful tour group of 9 people, and we really enjoyed travelling around with them. All of the hotels we stayed in were clean and well located, the buffets provided were of good quality although the selection could have been a bit more varied. The tour was organised well however we did have a few hiccups along the way; there was some confusion on our hotel booking for the first night and some of the excursions could have been more thoroughly explained. We were disappointed with the felucca cruise overall, the food was great however we didn't do a lot of sailing (just travelling from one bank to another) and the sleeping arrangements were poor. Overall we enjoyed the trip, the guides were excellent and very friendly. Petra and Dead sea are a must. Would absolutely recommend but be prepared for the felucca/wadi ru

Amazing experience!
My husband and I just returned from this tour of Egypt and Jordan and we absolutely loved it! This was our second trip with Expat so we knew that we should expect a jam packed itinerary with early rises and a lot of wonderful things to discover. The Egyptian portion of the trip was amazing and our tour guide Ramez was absolutely the best! Being an Egyptologist, he certainly knows his stuff and is very knowledgeable and passionate about it. He was also very well organized, a good communicator, patient with everyone, fun and extremely friendly. We had a small group of 15 wonderful people which made the whole experience even better. We had opted for the Felucca cruise on the Nile and it was a lot of fun. Crew on the boat were extremely friendly and made everything they could to make the experience enjoyable and memorable. They even through a birthday party (with the help of Ramez) to one of us in the group including a cake, music and dance around a bomb fire. This was so much fun! T

An amazing experience
If I was just scoring on my Egypt tour, it would definitely have been a 10/10. Ramez was the most amazing tour leader and didn't let us down at all. His passion and knowledge for everything Egypt was fantastic and he was very well organised and we knew exactly where we were going and where we had to be everyday. Thank you Ramez for making my bucket list trip an adventure I will not forget. I was so lucky to have a great group as well - thank you to you all for sharing this experience with me. Thanks also to Sam and the other tour leaders - you made me feel so welcome. I had read that the Jordan leg of the trip was a bit rushed - and it definitely was. I still enjoyed it and loved seeing Petra and swimming in the Dead Sea but would have liked to have had more time to enjoy it all. Ou accommodation was excellent throughout the trip and meals were ok but I was definitely over buffets by the end of the tour. WiFi was great in Jordan but definitely not so good in Egypt but Sam and

Bucket-List Experience
Egypt is a must-do for all travellers and expat were a great company to experience it all though. Our itinerary was brilliant, never making us feel rushed but ensuring we got to experience the best Egypt has to offer in a 10 day visit. Ramez our guide is the best you can hope for. His knowledge of Egyptology, care for us as a group, organisation and kind and happy nature left us with memories and friendships that will last a life-time. Not once did I feel unsafe or at risk as a solo mid 20's female traveller. The Jordan part of the trip, while a beautiful country with amazing sites and experiences also was a bit rushed and felt disorganised. Don't let this stop you from booking the Egypt part of the trip though! I would recommend this trip to anyone, especially with the overnight on a Felucca boat - a highlight of the trip for me!!

Egypt & Jordan Adventure With Felucca Cruise Oct 2022
The tour was a total of 15 days, and while fast-paced, the overall experience was magnificent! The locations visited were breathtaking, and the knowledge provided by our tour guide Ramez was unsurpassed. I cannot recommend him enough. He went above and beyond in making everyone feel welcome and safe during the tour while bringing much fun to the adventure. Great thought went into the planning of the itinerary (particularly in Egypt), so that we would visit attractions at times when both crowds and the heat were minimal. Favourite activities included visiting the Valley of the Kings (including the sunrise hot air balloon ride over the region), Abu Simbel, and the overnight felucca ride which included dancing and merryment around a fire for a group member's birthday. Our group was of about 15, and by the end of the trip we all became great friends. The Jordan segment of the trip was slightly more rushed and disorganised, but still very much enjoyable. Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea are a defi

Is this the right tour for you? 

What is a felucca boat and what is it like to spend the night on board? 
A felucca boat is a traditional wooden sailing boat with a large, covered, cushioned communal area. You will be sharing a sleeping area as well as bathroom facilities with your fellow travellers for the night during the Egypt boat trip. It might not be everyone's cup of tea but this is an exciting and authentic Nile River experience! 

Will I be comfortable sightseeing in the sun without shade? 
This is the Middle East and Africa so it can get hot and sunny. You will be exploring many temples, sights and desert areas so be sure to pack sturdy, comfortable walking shoes, adequate sun protection and remember to stay hydrated. There will also be plenty of time to relax! 

What is the accommodation like? 
During this tour, you will stay in twin-share rooms. If you are a single traveller you will be paired with a fellow traveller of the same gender. If you would prefer some privacy, you can pay a single supplement and enjoy your own room.

Please note: Some hotels in Egypt may not have lifts, so you may need to carry luggage up stairs. Be sure to bring a suitcase and luggage that is relatively easy to handle. 

Can I charge my gear? What plugs are used in Egypt? 
Egypt uses plug types C and F (similar to those used in Europe), while Jordan used plug types C, D, F, G and J. Be sure to pack a travel adapter to make sure you can charge your tech gear while travelling. 

If you are looking for an immersive, history-filled and exciting way to experience Egypt and Jordan, this is it!
