The Pyramids, Beaches & Desert tour starts in Cairo and ends in Madaba. The Pyramids, Beaches & Desert is a Explorer tour that takes 17 days taking you from Cairo to Madaba and 9 other destinations in Egypt.

Myth, religion and wonder come together on this expedition across the timeless terrain of Egypt and Jordan. From the mysteries of the Sphinx to the sublime stone structures of Petra, discover ancient sites galore. Travel on a felucca down the mighty Nile, stay on an undiscovered stretch of Red Sea coast and spend a night with Bedouin locals amid the sand dunes of Wadi Rum – these are just some of the highlights that make this adventure across the sands of time truly memorable.

Before booking on this trip we recommend that you read the ‘Safety’ section in the trip notes regarding special safety considerations for Egypt trips.

TRIP CHANGES FOR 2017:
From 1 January 2017 this trip will no longer travel to Dahab, Red Sea Beach Camp and Aqaba and the trip length will be 15 days instead of 17. These changes come as a result of traveller feedback and the advice of our local operator. We found that the ferry from Nuweiba to Aqaba was often delayed resulting in a loss of time in the next destination and a frustrating experience for our passengers.
On Day 8 of the new itinerary the group will now fly from Cairo to Amman and then continue to Wadi Rum, Petra before arriving into Madaba the finish point for this trip. The new itinerary will also give the group one more day in Wadi Rum (Days 9&10). This will allow the group time to spend in Wadi Rum with our Bedouin hosts and trek through the spectacular desert landscape.

Due to this trip not travelling to the coastal towns of Dahab, Red Sea Beach Camp and Aqaba, we have changed the name of this itinerary to Discover Egypt & Jordan

The new itinerary is outlined below:

Day 1 Cairo
Day 2 Cairo
Day 3 Aswan
Day 4 Aswan
Day 5 Nile Felucca
Day 6 Luxor
Day 7 Luxor
Day 8 Amman
Day 9 Wadi Rum
