Egypt & Jordan trip in February

Jump to last reply

A friend and I are travelling to Egypt and Jordan Feb 13 - 27 and looking for a reputable travel agent to help us coordinate. We are looking for someone to help us with authentic travel experiences, including climbing Mt. Sinai. Here's the itinerary (not set in stone at this point, but we think it looks good). Any info on a great travel agent (we are looking for nice hotels but they don't have to be 5 star). Unfortunately the first travel agent recommded only does 5 star hotels and hence the trip was too expensive.

Feb 14 - Arrival Cairo
Feb 15 - Cairo sightseeing (Full day pyramids - or we can do half day)
Feb 16 - Cairo sightseeing (Islamic/Egyptian Museum
Feb 17 - Flight from Cairo to Abu Simbel, then back to Aswan for cruise embarkation, this afternoon you can do a lazy felucca sailtrek or even a one hour camel trek to St. Simeon's Monastery. overnight Aswan
Feb 18 - Kom Ombo/Edfu on cruise
Feb 19 - East Bank AND West Bank of Luxor on cruise (Valley of Kings, Hatchepsut, and Karnak would be nice)
Feb 20 - Early morning non-stop flight to Sharm, transfer to Dahab (arrival time approx 09:30) - full day rest/relax/snorkeling (Because you really need a day to rest in between the sites and the ascent)
Feb 21 - St. Katherine/Mt. Sinai trekking/ascent (9-10am departure from Dahab and 7-8pm return - sunrise, not touristy ascent)
Feb 22 - Free morning Dahab, Sharm-Amman direct flight, Arrive at 4pm, Overnight Amman
Feb 23 - Jerash and transfer to Petra for Petra by Night Experience, Overnight Petra
Feb 24 - Petra, Overnight Petra
Feb 25 - Transfer to Dead Sea for some relaxation, Overnight Dead Sea

Feb 26 - Transfer to Madaba via Baptism site, visit sights in Madaba, hotel in Madaba until flight, Transfer to airport
