Great Accommodation from Beginning to End
Our tours are as much about comfort as they are about sightseeing. To this end, all of our existing Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia feature 4 and/or 5 star hotel accommodation exclusively. The only exceptions would be if choose one of our Egypt and Jordan tours from Australia that feature camping in the desert. A few of our multi-destination tours might also include accommodation in eco-lodges which essentially don’t have any star rating. However, even such accommodation is bound to impress you.
Cruising the Nile in Style
Nearly all of our existing Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia include a Nile River cruise. As is the case with hotel accommodation, we only ever book our clients onto 5-Star cruises. These river cruisers are very much the same as hotel. They include the same sort of amenities that one would expect to find at any good hotel.
There are also various services available on board these vessels, including massage and spa services. All the cruises that are featured in our tours include full board. Enjoy 3 full meals a day throughout your cruise without have to worry about additional expenses. Most cruises also include free on-board entertainment in the evenings.
Things like snacks, beverages and any additional meals are not included in the prices of our Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia. Laundry services are available on board the vessels, but laundry expenses are not included in our tour prices.
It is worth noting that most of the services and amenities mentioned above are not available on a Dahabiya cruise. These traditional river yachts are far smaller than the larger boats, and space is therefore limited. Dahabiya boats can typically only accommodate up to about 12 to 15 people. These cruises also include full board. They also tend to cost more, but if you want a much more personal experience compared to a regular cruise, then it would take a lot to beat a Dahabiya cruise.
Expertly Guided Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia
All of our Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia included the services or professional English-speaking guides. In nearly all instances, tours in Cairo are private guided tours with one of our Egyptologist guides and your own private driver. If your chosen tour includes a Nile River cruise, all tours and excursions during the cruise will be small group tours. Tour groups are kept small, and they are also led by one of our Egyptologist guides.
One or more of our guides always sail with the boat so that they can accompany our clients to the various sites that are visited during a Nile cruise. They only sail with the vessel to serve as guides during excursions. Under no circumstances will they invade your privacy during your cruise, but they will always be there to offer assistance if need be, or to share their vast amount of knowledge with you.
In Jordan, you will have your own private English-speaking driver, but you won’t have a full-time guide with you. Instead, we work with local English-speaking specialist guides at the various sites that are featured in our Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia. For example, you will have a specialist local guide to show you around at the Lost City of Petra; different guide to show you around at Jerash, and etc.
The Best Sightseeing Imaginable

Most of our Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia begin in Cairo. Generally speaking, there will be one or two full days of sightseeing in and around Cairo. Places such as the Giza Pyramids; the Sphinx and the Egyptian Museum feature in more or less all of our existing Egypt and Jordan tours from Australia.

Nile River cruises run between Aswan and Luxor, with fantastic sightseeing in Aswan, Kom Ombo, Edfu and Luxor. Some of the most notable attractions that feature in nearly all cruises include places like Philae Temple; Kom Ombo Temple and Edfu Temple. In Luxor we visit several more extraordinary sites, including Valley of the Kings; Hatshepsut Temple; Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple.
Several other historical monuments may also be included in your tour itinerary, depending on which one of our Egypt, Jordan tours from Australia you opt for. In Jordan, you will generally visit fewer attractions than you will in Egypt, but those that you do visit are no less amazing.
