It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one to remain largely intact. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC. At 146.5 metres the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years. Not far from the Pyramids, you will also see the Great Sphinx of Giza hewn from natural yellowish limestone – it measures 73 metres long from paw to tail and 20 metres high from the base to the top of the head.

The tour takes approximately 1.5 hours and ends at the exit, situated at the rear of the monument. Your vehicle will be waiting to return you to the airport where you will go through a security check. The airport waiting room has a small snack counter and bathrooms for your convenience.

Abu Simbel is one of the most impressive archaeological sites in all of Egypt, not only for its historical significance, but for the great engineering success in moving these temples to their present location. Of all the temples of Egyptian antiquity, amongst the most spectacular and best preserved are the Temples of Abu Simbel. The master builder was Ramses II, one of Egypt’s greatest Pharaohs. The larger temple celebrates the Pharaoh himself while the smaller one honours his wife Queen Nefertari. When the new Lake Nasser Dam was built in the 1960s, the temples were moved to save them from a watery grave. In an amazing feat of engineering, the temples were hewn into huge blocks of thirty tonnes and relocated 180m further inland.

Later, transfer to the airport for your flight back to Aswan and transfer to your hotel. Today for the Abu Simbel tour, pack some snacks, bottled water and a good sunhat etc.

Day 3: Wed 03 Jun: Amman – Madaba – Mt Nebo – Kerak - Petra (BD)

This evening savour a dinner at the Cave Bar Restaurant in Petra. You will be based at the Petra Guest House Hotel or similar for 3 nights.

Petra, nestled in the mountains south of the Dead Sea, is perhaps the most spectacular ancient city remaining in the modern world. The city was the capital of the Nabateans who dominated the lands of Jordan during pre-Roman times. They carved this wonderland of temples, tombs and elaborate buildings out of solid rock. For centuries, Petra fell into the mists of legend, its existence a guarded secret known only to the local Bedouins and Arab tradesmen. In 1812, a young Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt heard locals speaking of a "lost city" hidden in the mountains of Wadi Musa. Burckhardt disguised himself as a pilgrim and discovered the secret of Petra, revealing it to the modern world. In order to best savour the atmosphere of this ancient wonder, visit in the quiet of the morning or late afternoon when the sandstone rock glows red with quiet grandeur.

Day 4: Thu 04 Jun: Petra (BLD)

This morning explore the famous Nabatean rock-cut tombs and temples of Petra. Entry is via a narrow ‘siq’, reaching hundreds of feet high. Your first sight is of Al Khazneh - the Treasury, carved ornately in the red rock. The Nabataeans were an industrious Arabian people who settled in South Jordan more than 2,000 years ago. Other sights include the 3,000 seat theatre (1st C. AD) and the Palace Tomb designed in Roman style. Stop for lunch at the Nabataean Tent Restaurant in Petra, which was founded with the assistance of kiwi born Marguerite van Geldermelsen, who later settled in Petra with her husband Mohammed. There will also be an opportunity to visit the family shop, managed by Marguerite’s family. This afternoon either free time to further explore Petra at your own
pace or return to your hotel to relax. We recommend stopping for a drink at the Cave Bar at your hotel, as you exit Petra. Dinner is included this evening at the Petra Guest House. Optional Petra By Night.

Day 5: Fri 05 Jun: Petra - Wadi Rum - Petra (BL)

Today travel south to Wadi Rum where Lawrence of Arabia rode across the desert with his Arab liberation army. Take a 4WD ride through this impressive moon-like landscape, with its dramatic canyons and dunes. Experience the warm hospitality of a local Bedouins over lunch with a family. Later return to Petra. This evening dinner is own arrangements, chose to dine at your hotel, or perhaps at many of the local restaurants, located nearby your hotel.

Day 6: Sat 06 Jun: Petra - Dead Sea (BD)

Today drive north to the Dead Sea. Travel through some spectacular scenic desert hilly terrain. En route stop at a local shop which specialises in therapeutic Dead Sea products. On arrival at the Dead Sea Movenpick Hotel early this afternoon, there will be an opportunity to experience the uniqueness of the ancient waters and float in the Dead Sea, or perhaps sample a spa treatment.

The Dead Sea is 75 kilometres long and from 6 to 16 kilometres wide. It is fed by the Jordan River, but it has no outlet. As its name suggests, the Dead Sea is entirely devoid of plant and animal life. This is due to an extremely high content of salt and other minerals—350 grams of salt per kilogram of water, as compared to about 40 grams in the world’s oceans. This concentration is caused by a rapid rate of evaporation. These natural elements give the waters of the Dead Sea certain curative properties, recognized since the days of Herod the Great over 2000 years ago. (Due to the high salt and minerals properties, we recommend not to shave for at least 24 hours prior)

Your accommodation in Dead Sea has been reserved at the Movenpick Dead Sea Hotel overnight. Dinner is included this evening at your hotel with a farewell drink included.

Day 7: Sun 07 Jun: Dead Sea - Amman - Departure (B)

Today you will be transferred to Amman Airport for your onward flight. Or option to continue your special Travel Companions holiday and discover Israel/Holyland.
