An astounding tour of Jordan and Egypt, with a Wadi Rum desert safari, a full-board Nile cruise, a tour of the Pyramids and much more – travel included

Jordan, a land of deep red deserts, stunning archaeological sites and a history of significance stretching back over millennia, is a must-see destination. Now conjure up the vivid potency of Ancient Egypt and all its remaining archaeological feats exuding jaw-dropping mysticism, and you have two culturally rich countries that beg exploration.

During this awe-inspiring tour, you'll travel from bustling cities to the lunar-like desert and onto the tranquillity of the Dead Sea, before gazing at the Pyramids, sailing along the majestic Nile and stopping at astonishing temples along the way. You'll stay at hand-picked hotels throughout, including a Jordanian desert camp and a five-deck Nile cruiser.

Your tour starts in Jordan's capital, Amman – a modern and cosmopolitan city with a chic, contemporary cafe and culinary scene sitting alongside chaotic souks. Next, you'll head to Petra, visiting the Mosaic city of Madaba en route – where the oldest map of the Holy Land exists. A full-day tour of Petra will see you walk through the Siq (a narrow and winding fissure between the cliffs) to reach the Treasury, the Roman Theatre, the Courts, Qasr Bint Pharaoun, Temple of the Winged Lion and other monuments.

Next up is the moon-like terrain of Wadi Rum, where a Jeep safari will tour you over the rich red sands. Then, you’ll move on to the Dead Sea in the Jordan Rift Valley, with its year-round sunny skies, dry air and one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water.

The next day, you’ll visit Jerash to witness the best-preserved examples of Roman civilization, before an outstanding example of Arab/Islamic military architecture at Ajloun. The following day, you'll go on a fascinating Amman city tour - the capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which is now known as the ‘White City’ due to the white stone used to build its houses, and you’ll also visit Al Salt City – an attractive place that’s tightly built on a cluster of three hills.

Landing in Cairo, you'll spend half a day admiring the majesty of Giza's pyramids and snapping the regal Sphinx, before flying south to Luxor the next day. Here, you'll board your five-deck cruiser to float serenely down the age-old Nile.

Over the next four days, you'll visit the temples of Karnak and Luxor; tour the legendary Valley of the Kings; gaze out from the Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut; and see the country's best preserved and second largest temple in Edfu, dedicated to the hawk god, Horus. Finally arriving in Aswan from Kom Ombo, you'll return to Cairo for a final night to soak up the Egyptian capital's magnetic buzz, before flying home to the UK.
