Newleyweds Planning Trip to Israel, Jordan and Egypt

Jump to last reply

Hi. My husband and I are in our 20s and are planning a trip to Israel, Jordan and Eygpt. We have about 10 days to spend traveling and we know that we will have to be busy to see everything we want to see.

In Israel, we would like to spend about 3-4 full days in Jerusalem, a day seeing Masada, the Dead Sea and perhaps Ein Gedi, a full day in Jordan to see Petra and 2 full days in Egypt to see the Pyramids and other sights around there. I've been to Israel twice before, but my husband has not. Neither of us has been to Jordan or Egypt, but we have traveled a lot together. We are open to going to Eilat to get on organized tours, but want to have freedom too and don't want to waste too much time on a bus, rather than just flying.

Are guided tours of Petra easy to get once you arrive?

Where would you recommend we spend 2 days in- Petra or Cairo? We would spend 1 in the other.

We can also fly home from Cairo rather than coming back to Tel Aviv.

We would appreciate any advice you could give us. Thanks!
