When is the Best Time to Visit Egypt and Jordan?
If you are going to be booking one of our Egypt and Jordan tours from USA, then the best time to visit will essentially depend on what your priorities are. If getting the lowest possible prices is your top priority, then we would recommend visiting during the low season. Generally speaking, the low season stretches from May to September.
During the low season, hotel rates and Nile cruise prices are typically lower than they are during the high season. Even admission tickets to certain sites can cost less during the low season. This of course also allows us to offer lower prices. On the downside, the low season is generally also the warmest and/or wettest time of the year, depending on where about you are.
If you value milder and more pleasant weather, then it would be best to visit during the high season. The high season stretches from October to April. One downside of the high season is the potential for encountering large crowds. Some of Egypt’s most famous sites can be quite crowded during the high season. The same applies to the resort towns of Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada on Egypt’s Red Sea coast.
When is the Best Time to Book Egypt and Jordan Tours from USA?

Prices for our Egypt and Jordan tours from USA can increase very suddenly due to reasons beyond our control.

Imagine boarding your much anticipated Nile River cruise and then spending most of your time confined to your cabin because of an upset stomach. Fortunately, a few basic precautions can go a long way in helping you to prevent the most common health problems that many travelers encounter.
To begin with, only drink bottled water. Our tours include free bottled water during tours and road trips, but if need water at other times, bottled water inexpensive and readily available. We also recommend exercising a certain amount of caution when it comes to buying and eating street food. There is so much delicious street food available in places like Cairo, and we certainly recommend trying lots of different things, but just be weary of where you buy your food and/or snacks.
If you are out with one of our guides, they will be able to offer you advice and/make recommendations. However, if you are out on your own, we recommend that you should, at the very least, only buy food and snacks from places or venues that appear to be busy. Lots of local customers are a good indication of quality and good overall food hygiene. In short, if you pay attention to what you eat and you take reasonable steps to protect yourself against the sun and dehydration, you should be fine.
