Take an extraordinary journey on this escorted tour of Egypt, beginning and ending in Cairo, followed by a 4-night stay in Jordan. Begin with a 3-night stay in Cairo—called the “Mother of the World”—to explore the legendary sites you’ve dreamed of seeing. Stand before the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza; Sakkara’s tombs of the kings, and a mesmerizing evening light show at the pyramids. Survey King Tut’s treasures at the Egyptian Museum (note: upon its opening in 2022, the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza will replace Cairo’s Egyptian Museum for this itinerary.); visit Saladin’s 12th-century citadel behind the walls of Old Cairo; and visit Coptic Cairo, where the Holy Family sought refuge, and home to Cairo’s oldest Jewish synagogue. Fly from Cairo to Luxor and see the stunning of Luxor and Karnak. Walk among the pillars the colossal Temple of Amun Ra and along the Avenue of the Sphinxes. Embark on a luxury cruise on the Nile River to the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens and see the site where 62 tombs have been discovered so far, including the intact tomb of King Tutankhamun. In Edfu, visit the temple to the falcon god, Horus; and take a walk to the bluff-top temples of Horus and the crocodile god, Sobek-Ra, in beautiful Kom Ombo. Enjoy a presentation by an expert Egyptologist while sailing to Aswan. There, board a Felucca (traditional wooden sailing boat) to visit Kitchener Island’s botanical gardens and the grand mausoleum of Aga Khan. Disembark your Nile River cruise through Egypt for two nights in Cairo. Take an excursion to the granite quarries that supplied ancient Egypt with the stones that built the pyramids. See the famous unfinished obelisk remaining there. Visit the gigantic Aswan High Dam and board a motor launch to the island of Agilika—home of the Temple of Isis. You’ll also tour the world’s widest open-air museum and take a scenic cruise on a feculla boat. Your adventure continues with four nights in Jordan, with a flight from Cairo to Amman. Spend one night each in Amman and Petra, and two nights at the Dead Sea. Enjoy superior accommodations, transportation, and guided sightseeing with expert Local Guides to see the red city of Petra, Roman ruins of Amman, the ruins of Jerash, and the Dead Sea.

This tour /cruise was fantastic. The pre-cruise extension in Transylvania was for me the highlight and anyone considering the cruise should definitely include this. Our Avalon cruise director and the entire crew were outstanding as were the local guides who were extremely knowledgeable and spoke perfect English.

Outstanding cruise,ship and crew were excellent.Cruise Director Simona is a delight,extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Will travel again with Avalon.

I would travel on valon only in the future. Cleaner, newer, more comfortable ships with a great stafff. Better than my previous river cruises with a high end ship! And the cruise director has to be the absolutely best in the industry!!!

We had an excellent time! Avalon was so accommodating...will definitely book with them in the future. Thank you, Richard for all your help in making this trip happen.

Pairing lunch and dinner wines with the city/area we were in would enhance the experience. The cruise directors, Jean and Tony were outstanding. Very professional and always coordinating so there were no unpleasant experiences.

Don't be afraid to try the active excursions. They were amazing and they were honest if they felt a guest wouldn't be comfortable with the level of difficulty.

The overall dining experience was ok, not great

Avalon was excellent in every way. Beautiful room, excellent service, and delicious food. They performed without a hitch.

Wonderful tour directors . So accommodating and personable.

Avalon did a good job on most fronts. Staff, food and accommodations were all fine. Although they appeared to have some coordination issues with the hotel regarding baggage handling and definitely needed to improve traveler communication aboard the ship. Their reliance on the AvalonGo application for communication was misplaced since the wifi aboard ship worked only intermittently, leaving passengers to wonder about event times and procedures. The ship broke down near the end of the voyage, which suggested that the downtime during covid might have been used more effectively to maintain the propulsion system. Nightly briefings were helpful, but long-winded and repetitious.

Lost this trip two years in a row. Third time was a charm. Timing was perfect to see Keukenhof Gardens in full bloom. History of the Cologne region and The Black Forest in Germany was spectacular. An added bonus was wine tasting in the Alsace region in France. Everything was perfect. Looking forward to another trip in a different location. As far as an "all inclusive", this is a great value. Would highly recommend.

Loved the River cruise venue. Intimate, quiet, and friendly.

Avalon had all details worked out, never felt confused or unsure of the daily activities. Worry free vacation

We've sailed with Avalon before and love their ships.
