Egypt and Jordan Itinerary, please help me finalize.

Jump to last reply

Please help me make a choice. I have the first 9 days of my itinerary done, thanks to your input. I am going to post my two scenarios for the last 7 days. Not sure why I am having such a hard time to decide. Maybe because there is so much to see.

Route 1

Day 1-9 – Cairo, Alexandria, Abu Simbel, Aswan, nile cruise which includes 1 day in Luxor

Day 10 - Extra day in Luxor ??

Day 11 – Fly to Dahab – arrive about 3:00 (include drive from airport)

Day 12 - Dahab - Le Meridian

Day 13 - Dahab- Le Meridian

Day 14- Drive to Petra (stop over in Wadi Rum) arrive about 6:00 p.m.

Day 15 - Petra – all day sight seeing

Day 16 - Drive to Amman, can sight see all day along the way (flight at 11:45)

Route 2

Day 1-9 – Cairo, Alexandria, Abu Simbel, Aswan, nile cruise which includes 1 day in Luxor

Day 10 - Extra day in Luxor ??

Day 11 – Fly to Amman – arrive about 4:25

Day 12 – Drive to Petra, sight see along the way

Day 13 – Petra

Day 14- Drive to Aqaba

Day 15 - Aqaba

Day 16 - Drive to Amman, can sight see all day along the way (flight at 11:45)

Should I add an extra day in Luxor?

We have a car and driver, so would drive from Dahab to Petra, if that is the option we take. I am going to Dahab for the snokeling and the Le Meridian resort, not really to hang in the town.

In route 2, If we skip Dahab, would fly to Amman.
Our main goal in going to Jordan was to see Petra, but now I see there are so many other things to see.

We had wanted to include a beach stop off, just to relax. It is not mandatory, but I thought would be nice.

As always, I appreciate your input.
