Deal puts Cairo, the Pyramids and Petra at your feet

Deal puts Cairo, the Pyramids and Petra at your feet

This deal makes the mysterious Middle East accessible and affordable for those who want to see Egypt and Jordan.

Deal: Friendly Planet Travel has discounted its eight-day Pyramids and Petra Tour for departures between September and December so a couple can save $600.

The tour includes: round-trip flights from New York (JFK) on Royal Jordanian Airlines, fuel surcharges, arrival and departure transfers and all intra-Egypt flights and ground transportation; six nights’ lodging at first-rate hotels; daily breakfast, one lunch and one dinner; and sightseeing tour programs with English-speaking tour guides of the Pyramids and the Sphinx in Giza, Egypt, and the lost city of Petra (including a horseback ride and a walk through Siq, a narrow gorge flanked by enormous cliffs) in Jordan.

When:  $300 discount per person on bookings made before July 2, based on double occupancy.  Trip dates are: Sept. 4-11 for $1,699 and Oct. 9-16, Nov. 27-Dec. 4 and Dec. 4-11 for $1,799.

Tested:  All dates were available when I tested,  but if travelers wish to add on the optional three-night Dead Sea Spa Extension at the Movenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea, the Nov. 27-Dec. 4 tour has the most availability.  The Dead Sea Spa extension costs $349 per person for these dates. Travelers must arrive in New York by the evening of their departure date (for an outbound flight departing JFK at 10:30 p.m.).  

Caveat:  Travel insurance is recommended and costs $129 per person for tours costing less than $5,000.  A non-refundable $300 per person is required to hold a reservation with payment in full due 75 days before departure. The $1,699 and $1,799 prices do not include $158 (for U.S. and foreign taxes/fees) or a $28 Egyptian visa fee per person.

Five places to see in your lifetime

If you actually stop and think about how many holidays you can fit in during a lifetime you should actually be quite picky about where you go each year. The world is a big place and there’s a lot to see and do, but where are the must-visit locations you really need to experience before you can holiday no more?

The last standing structure of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Great Pyramid of Giza, is a must see for anyone interested in world history and one of the most fascinating ancient cultures to have graced our world. Situated on the west bank of the River Nile and a short trip from Cairo, Giza holds some of the world’s most impressive monuments, including the Great Sphinx. Why not tie in your trip to the pyramids with a luxury cruise down the Nile or a once-in-a-lifetime diving experience in the Red Sea? As well as its glorious beaches, the Red Sea has some of the best scuba diving in the world.
