1. Tag: Kairo

Welcome to Cairo! You will meet with your trip leader and the rest of your group at 6 pm this evening. If you arrive with time to spare before your tour begins, maybe go immerse yourself in the madness: grab a pair of authentic Roy Bunds sunnies from the bazaar, embrace the kitsch world of Dr Ragab's Pharaonic Village, or wash down the dust with a sahlab (sweet, hot custard drink with nuts).

Be ready tonight to put your tastebuds into overload as you head out with your new travel buddies for some koshari where all the locals go.. downtown of course. Koshari? think vegetarian Egyptian chilli, you may want a fresh lemon juice with that.

Special Information: It’s very important that you attend the welcome meeting as we will be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this time. If you are going to be late please let your travel agent or hotel reception know. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place.
All listed optional activities listed do not include transport or a local guide. Please speak to your trip leader for more details on how to organise these.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

2. Tag: Kairo / Pyramiden / Sphinx

Today you'll take a trip to the Egyptian Museum to see the golden mask of none other than King Tutankhamun. Drive out to the edge of the desert and explore the Pyramids and the nearby Sphinx (nobody's quite sure how it lost its nose). A guy called Khufu was responsible for building the Great Pyramid. It’s 4500 years old, 146 metres tall and made from 2.3 million blocks weighing around 2.5 tons each. And how did they honour him? With a 9 cm tall statue. Bummer. Later there are plenty of options, like visiting the Valley Temple of King Khafre (Chephren). Just remember these will cost you extra. In the evening, it's time for your sleeper train to Aswan (Sleeper Train to Aswan sounds a bit like the title of an adventure novel, doesn't it? Just you wait).

Special Information: The two-berth cabins on the overnight train are comfortable and air-conditioned. All bedding is provided on board by the porter. Western-style toilets are located in each carriage, but we recommend bringing additional toilet paper. Keep in mind general train cleanliness may not be to the same standards you are accustomed to. An included dinner and breakfast are served on board. You may want to purchase something extra beforehand to supplement your meal, particularly if you're a vegetarian as a meat-based meal is served for dinner. In rare circumstances you may be paired in your cabin with a group member of the opposite gender, depending on the group configuration. On other occasions, you might be sharing with another traveller of the same gender who may not be part of our group, again determined by the group configuration.

Optional Activities:
Cairo - Camel ride at the Pyramids - EGP100
Cairo - The Egyptian Museum Mummy Room - EGP150
Cairo - Sound & Light Show at the Pyramids (entrance fee only) - EGP1100
Cairo - The 2nd Pyramid of Khafre - EGP60
Cairo - The Great Pyramid of Cheops - EGP300

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Cairo - The Egyptian Museum
Cairo - Pyramids and Sphinx

Unterkunft: Nachtzug

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Abendessen

3. Tag: Assuan

Hit the bazaar this morning on a tour with your leader. Be prepared for friendly shouts of ‘welcome’ and ‘where are you from’ coming from the vendors. Visit an oil and perfume merchant to learn about how aromatic botanicals have been used in Egypt throughout the ages. From mummification to smelling pretty for a date, you’ll discover their myriad uses. Later, choose whether to join an optional tour to the Philae Temple Complex. A standout here is the Temple of Isis (the Goddess of health, marriage and wisdom) that was rescued from the rising waters of the Nile and relocated in the 1960s. In the afternoon, pop on a lifejacket and grab a paddle for the kayaking adventure of a lifetime as you navigate the Nile. For dinner, you’ve got the chance to head to a Nubian village and enjoy an included dinner with a local family.

Optional Activities:
Aswan - Philae Temple - EGP140
Aswan - Philae Temple Sound & Light Show (entrance only) - EGP150
Aswan - Unfinished Obelisk (entrance only) - EGP80

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Aswan - Nile River Kayaking

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

4. Tag: Assuan

This morning is yours to spend as you please in Aswan. If you can manage a (very) early start, the optional drive to Abu Simbel is well worth it. Cut out of a solid rock cliff, this temple’s a real winner as far as sightseeing in Egypt goes (and that is obviously saying a lot). Renting a minivan with your fellow travellers is the cheapest option. Remember, it takes 3 hours to drive there and 3 hours to drive back, plus you’ll want at least 2 hours to explore when you’re there. Back in Aswan the evening is free to check out the town.

Optional Activities:
Aswan to Abu Simbel: return transport by bus & entrance fee (price from per person - minimum 4 passengers) - USD110
Aswan to Abu Simbel: return flights and entrance fee (book with www.egyptair.com - prices from approx) - USD320
Aswan - Nubian Museum (entry fee) - EGP100

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

5. Tag: Feluke auf dem Nil

Chill this morning before boarding your overnight felucca. A bit like a floating tent, a felucca is a traditional Egyptian vessel and the perfect way to explore the Nile. Later, take a stroll through a colourful Nubian village and discover what life is like for people living along the Nile. Depending on the group vibe, tonight might include a little beach party.

Special Information: A felucca sailing excursion is one the best ways to experience the relaxed lifestyle of the Nubian and Egyptian culture. Part of this immersive experience in sharing a sleeping space with your fellow travellers. You’ll be sharing a massive mattress like a happy can of sardines. Blankets are provided, but we recommend travelling with a sleep sheet. There is a toilet on board and mosquito net coverage, though it never hurts to have insect repellent on hand.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Nile - Nubian Village Visit with Dinner
Nile -Felucca Sailing
Nile - Dinner and Music Felucca

Unterkunft: Feluke

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

6. Tag: Luxor

Disembark your fine felucca this morning. While your body might be crying out for a shower, there’s one more temple to see before heading to the hotel. Check out the Temple of Edfu, where inscriptions give insight into life during the Hellenistic period when the temple was built. Continue to Luxor, where you’re free to explore this open-air, museum-city on your own. Can we suggest Karnak as the first stop? Wandering through this ancient village is a cool way to get a sense of life here more than 3000 years ago (hint: religion was a big deal). Legend has it that is you walk around the granite scarab that is west of the Sacred Lake seven times, you’ll meet your soulmate.

Optional Activities:
Luxor - Karnak Temple - EGP120
Luxor - Sound and Light Show at Karnak (Entry) - EGP250
Kom Ombo - Kom Ombo Temple - EGP80
Edfu - Edfu Temple - EGP100
Luxor - Bicycle Hire - EGP100

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

7. Tag: Luxor / Tal der Könige

We hope you missed being on the water, because today you’ll jump back on a boat to discover the West Bank. Check out three burial tombs in Valley of the Kings, with the option to pay for an exploration of the formerly lost tomb of Tutankhamun. Continue to the Colossi of Memnon, where two huge statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III will have you pondering whether posting selfies to Instagram twice a day is really the height of narcissism. If your fellow travellers are up for it, you can choose to finish your West Bank adventure with an optional visit to the tomb of Hatshepsut. She became pharaoh when she married her half-brother, which wasn’t all that uncommon at the time. If you’ve got any energy left, there will also be time to squeeze in a visit to Luxor Temple before your overnight train to Cairo.

Special Information: Audits were carried out on balloon operators within Egypt to assess the safety of their operations, and unfortunately we were not able to ascertain that safety standards of these balloon operators met our own. Therefore, we are not able to recommend or assist in the booking of any balloon excursions.

Optional Activities:
Luxor - Hatshepsut Temple - EGP82
Luxor - Tomb of Tutankhamun (Entry) - EGP250
Luxor - Luxor Temple (entry fee) - EGP100
Luxor - Luxor Museum (Entry) - EGP120

Luxor - Valley of the Kings (3 tombs)

Unterkunft: Nachtzug

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Abendessen

8. Tag: Kairo

Head south from Bab al-Futuh (one of three remaining gates from the Old City), walking past the old Islamic monuments that stand watch over the bazaars. Join in some good nature haggling at the Kahan-el Khalili bazaar, then head to El Fishawy. This ramshackle 240-year-old cafe is the perfect place for a cup of tea or a glass of cold water with lemon and mint. While there is nothing scheduled for tonight, we recommend heading into town as a group for one last bowl of koshari (pasta, rice and lentils).

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Cairo - Khan Al-Khalili Bazaar

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen

9. Tag: Amman

Farewell Pharaohs with a flight from Egypt to Jordan. Touch down in main town – Amman. When you get here you'll meet your brand new leader and any fellow travellers joining the trip here in Jordan at a 6 pm welcome meeting tonight. Make sure you’ve got all your important docs and deets on you. You've got some time to wander around - you don’t know the meaning of ‘bustling labyrinth’ until you walk around the Jordanian capital. If it all gets too cray, duck into a cafe for a sweet mint tea. Make a beeline for Rainbow Street for a falafel and a sheesha. It's what the locals would want. Something more substantial? Maybe head to the Old Town’s Roman Amphitheatre, have a cultured afternoon at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, snap some pics of the city from the hilltop Temple of Hercules, or sweat it out in a Turkish bath house. Afterwards, rendezvous with your new Intrepid crew for a team catch-up. It may or may not be at the local pub.

Special Information: As this is a combination trip, your group leader and the composition of your group will change at this location. There will be a group meeting to discuss the next stage of your itinerary and meet your new fellow travellers

Optional Activities:
Amman - King Abullah Mosque - JOD2
Amman - Jordan Museum - JOD5
Amman - Bethany Baptism site - JOD12
Amman - Roman Theatre - JOD2
Amman - Citadel - JOD3
Jerash - Roman ruins - JOD10

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

10. Tag: Wadi Rum

This morning, take a tour with your leader around Amman – best to begin at the hilltop Citadel, then follow the edge of the walls down into town past the Roman Theatre, the Nymphaeum ruins and the Al Husseiny Mosque. Be sure to stop in at some nut shops or a souq for some snacks along the way. After lunch, drive 4 hours to Wadi Rum. Once arrived, you'll meet your Bedouin hosts, who'll show you around camp and offer you many rounds of ‘Bedouin whisky’ (mint tea), so settle in for a night of traditional hospitality. This evening you'll be dining on traditional Bedouin cuisine, sleeping in Bedouin-style tents and gazing up at some traditional Bedouin skies. Did we mention Bedouin?

Special Information: The tents tonight are simple but comfortable. Expect single beds with all bedding including a nice thick blanket for those cool desert nights. During the colder months (October to March), temperatures can get as low as 5°C at night so you may want to bring along a sleeping bag too. The camp has flushing toilets and showers and is powered by solar panels, so it's not as 'rough' as you may think!

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Amman -Guided Walking Tour

Fahrzeit: ca. 4 Std.

Unterkunft: Wüstencamp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Abendessen

11. Tag: Wadi Rum

You won’t want to miss this: Wadi Rum rarely looks as fine as she does early morning. Wake up early to take in a magical sunrise, and once you're breakfast-ed, it’s time to head on safari. Jump in one of the jeeps and begin driving around the curious landscapes around, passing by Lawrence Spring – a rocky landscape contrasted by a freshwater spring, with panoramic views over the valley. You’ll also stop at Lawrence House, supposedly the house where Lawrence of Arabia lived and stored his equipment. Continue on to one of the largest sand dunes in Wadi Rum and check out some of the famous rock bridges. The deserts around Wadi Rum have got a real otherworldly feel to them, and so you wouldn’t be surprised that many Hollywood blockbusters have been shot in and around where you’ll tour today. Later in the afternoon, return to your camp and enjoy a second night of Bedouin hospitality.

Optional Activities:
Camel ride - JOD25

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Wadi Rum - 4WD jeep safari and desert camp
Wadi Rum - Guided trek

Unterkunft: Wüstencamp

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

12. Tag: Petra

Today, farewell your Bedouin mates and journey on to Petra (about a 2-hour drive). You’ll have two full days exploring Petra and its surrounds, so be sure to take your time in seeing the spectacular archaeological site. Once you’ve arrived, take a guided tour of the site, where you’ll learn about its thousands of years of history, and the many films that have used this as a backdrop – Indiana Jones, anyone? You'll get to follow in Indiana Jones’s footsteps on a guided tour that'll take you through the site's narrow siq (a narrow crack in the mountain) to Petra's tombs, temples and rock-hewn amphitheatre. For those wanting to admire the 'rose-red city' from a different angle, there's also the option of continuing up a cliff-top path past the Monastery for elevated views over the site. After a long day of exploration, you’ll probably be feeling quite weary, so the cave bar is good place to relieve your parched throat and put your feet up for while.

Special Information: A two-day entrance fee to Petra is included with this trip. Please note that when entering Petra as a group, a complimentary horse ride is included in the ticket price from the entrance point down to the Siq. Intrepid doesn't recommend that passengers take this option due to the safety and insurance liability involved.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Petra - Guided tour of Petra

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

13. Tag: Petra

You’ve got another day to explore the majestic Petra, and the best thing is you’re free to do as you please. Perhaps walk the road to Al Khanzneh (The Treasury) – one of the most stunning temples of the whole site. Or, if you didn’t make it yesterday, head up the stairs to El Dier (the Monastery). Other great options today are to hike to the royal tombs or visit the incredible Byzantine mosaics. Your leader will know all the good things to do, so ask them for help with arranging these.

Optional Activities:
Petra - Little Petra - Free

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

14. Tag: Madaba

This morning after breakfast, head away from Petra and drive down the King’s Highway towards Madaba. You’ll stop to check out the renowned Dead Sea and have a swim in these salty waters. If you’re feeling a bit sore and weary after your Petra expedition, do not fear, as the Dead Sea’s mud has known healing properties and will be sure to bring back your youthful good looks. Afterwards, swing past Mt Nebo and view the Promised Land, just like Moses did. Arrive in Madaba – the city of mosaics – and take a leader-led walking tour to get your bearings of the city. Included this afternoon is a visit to St Georges Church where you’ll see the intricate mosaic map, containing the oldest surviving cartographic depiction of the Holy Land and Jerusalem. Later on, perhaps head out tonight with the gang for dinner – there are some awesome places to eat in this city; your leader knows where to go.

Special Information: Madaba is a satellite city of Amman and transfers to the airport are really easy from here and often quicker due to traffic. You can reserve a private transfer with Intrepid, grab a taxi or check with your Leader how to catch the local bus. Mount Nebo and Dead Sea Entry is not included.

Optional Activities:
Mt Nebo - Mt Nebo Entrance - JOD1
Dead Sea - Visit - JOD40

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Madaba - St Georges Church

Fahrzeit: ca. 2 Std.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

15. Tag: Madaba

Your Jordan exploration ends in Madaba after breakfast. Because there’s loads to see in Madaba and Amman, we recommend that you spend an extra day or two to check out what you missed. If you would like to spend more time here, we’ll be happy to organise additional accommodation (subject to availability).

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

Reisestil
Seien wir mal ehrlich: Niemand geht auf Reisen, um den Spaß zu erleben für 3 Stunden in einer Warteschlange für Tickets zu stehen oder erfolglos nach einem Restaurant mit authentischen Speisen zu suchen (um schließlich aufzugeben und bei McDonalds zu landen). Deshalb beinhalten unsere Reisen einige Eintrittsgebühren zu den Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten, die Unterkünfte, alle Transportmittel, gelegentliche Mahlzeiten sowie das Know-How eines örtlichen erfahren Reiseführers. Zwar gibt es auch genügend Zeit, damit du dein eigenes Ding tun kannst, es sind aber auch Gruppenaktivitäten enthalten - weil manche Dinge gemeinsam einfach mehr Spaß machen! Diese Tour ist eine Backpacker-Tour, jedoch mit einer guten Portion Planung, so dass du dich auf das Wesentliche konzentrieren kannst: Das Erleben und Entdecken von Ägypten und Jordanien!

Hinweis
Der Flug von Kairo nach Amman ist unbegleitet. In dieser Verbindung sind die Flughafentransfers inkludiert. Die Gewichtsbeschränkungen für diesen Flug belaufen sich auf 23 kg für aufzugebendes Gepäck und 7 kg für Handgepäck.
