Egypt Tour Meets Classic Jordan
This comprehensive small-group Egypt travel tour combines Egypt’s great “must sees” with classic Jordan, taking in Petra and Jerash — even a relaxing stay on the Dead Sea! Although not declared a country until the 20th century, the fingerprints of the world’s oldest civilizations are found on the desert landscapes and red rock of Jordan. The Nabataeans, Romans and Byzantines each traded and built cities here, leaving behind an eclectic blend of architecture and cultures. Petra was hewn by the Nabataeans into rock colored with countless geologic shades and swirls; temples to Zeus and Artemis are only part of the Roman ruins in Jerash; and the call to prayer from a mosque mixes with church bells in Madaba, where Byzantine-era mosaics decorate the church floors.
