Lake Nasser cruise

Discover the treasures of the Middle East on a five-star journey through Jordan and Egypt. Admire the desert skies from your bed in Wadi Rum, feel the magic of Petra by night, marvel at the temples of Egypt and cruise Lake Nasser and the Nile in style.

Discover the Lost City

This luxury tour starts in Amman, the capital of Jordan where we explore impressive Roman ruins. Our next stop is Wadi Rum and a night under the stars in a luxury desert camp. We continue to Petra, an amazing destination made famous in classic movies such as Indiana Jones. The entrance is located at the end of a dark, narrow chasm; words cannot describe the unique beauty of the magnificent entrance to the Treasury.  It’s then on to the Dead Sea, where we enjoy swimming or (floating!) in the sea and indulging in Dead Sea mud treatments – known for their purifying qualities.

Cairo's treasures

From Jordan we fly to Egypt and begin our Egypt tour in Cairo, standing in front of the awe-inspiring Great Pyramids of Giza before. We visit to the world-famous Egyptian Museum, home to Tutankhamun's priceless treasures, the Citadel of Cairo and the Mohammed Ali Mosque, before a trip to the lively Khan El Khalili bazaar.

Cruising in style

We spend 4-nights on a luxurious Lake Nasser cruise. Whilst cruising we have time to both relax and enjoy shore visits to the famous temples of Amada, Kalabsha, Wadi El Seboua & the stunning Abu Simbel, some of the oldest in Egypt. The next part of our Egypt tour is a cruise along Egypt’s Nile River. On the way we stop to enjoy more famous sights of Egypt including the ancient temples of Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor and much more. Our cruising ends in Luxor with a visit to the Valley of the Kings before heading to Cairo where we finish with a group farewell dinner.
