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.
