ITINERARY

Day 1 - Amman, Jordan
Arrive in Amman, where you are met by an A&K representative and privately transferred to your hotel.

Day 2 - Amman
Journey this morning to Mount Nebo, in the footsteps of Moses, for expansive views of the Holy Land. Proceed to Madaba, known as the “City of Mosaics” for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad examples of the vividly colored local stone tiles. Later, explore the Royal Automobile Museum, where King Hussein’s collection mirrors Jordan’s modern history.

Day 3 - Wadi Rum
This morning, explore Amman, visiting its historic downtown, the Citadel and the impressive Roman Theater. Travel to Wadi Rum — the “Valley of the Moon” — which you explore by 4x4, traversing rose-tinted vistas and visiting a place where Lawrence of Arabia once lived. Tonight, embrace Bedouin life with a Chef’s Table dinner beneath twinkling desert skies.

Day 4 - Petra
Explore stunning Petra, the ancient Nabataean city carved from solid rock. Enter through a narrow gap, the Siq, to view the majestic Treasury, Temple of the Winged Lions and Palace Tomb. Once a stop for camel caravans bearing spices and silk, Petra was lost for 1,000 years until it was rediscovered in 1812 by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. After lunch, relax on a drive to your hotel along the shore of the Dead Sea.

Day 5 - The Dead Sea
Today, enjoy one of these Design Your Day options. Explore Third-Century Jerash, “Pompeii of the Middle East,” with its well-preserved Roman ruins, on foot. Visit Bethany Beyond the Jordan, on the eastern bank of the Jordan River, known as the baptism site of Jesus. Relax at the Kempinski Spa, indulging in the spa facilities and a 60-minute massage. Afterward, enjoy time at leisure, free to float in the restorative waters of the Dead Sea.

Day 6 - Cairo, Egypt
Fly to Cairo. This afternoon, visit the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities (or the Grand Egyptian Museum, upon its opening) to view a vast trove of artifacts.

Day 7 - Luxor
This morning, fly to Luxor and journey to the Temple of Karnak, where generations of pharaohs wished to record their names. Walk through the Great Hypostyle Hall with its expertly aligned columns, a sight to behold. Board Sanctuary Zein Nile Chateau, embarking on a three-night cruise to discover the Nile’s significant impact on ancient Egyptian civilization. After lunch, visit the striking Temple of Luxor. Along the front of the temple pylons, there were six large statues of Ramses II (of which three remain), while behind the East Tower is the Courtyard of Ramses II. Marvel at the Colonnade of Amenhotep III, which consists of 14 papyrus-headed columns, leading to the Court of Amenhotep III.

Day 8 - Nile Cruise
Discover the Valley of the Kings, the legendary burial ground of the pharaohs, including entrance into the tomb of “the boy king,” Tutankhamun. View the impressive Temple of Hatshepsut before returning to Sanctuary Zein Nile Chateau.

Day 9 - Nile Cruise
Cruise to the Temple of Horus, the falcon-headed god, at Edfu. Built in 230 BC by Ptolemy III, and having spent much of the modern era buried in sand and debris, this well-preserved and colorful structure reveals what temple worship in ancient Egypt was like. Sail toward Aswan while enjoying a Scenic Sundowner overlooking the Nile.

Day 10 - Aswan
Disembark in Aswan and ride a motorized boat to Philae Temple on the island of Agilika. Continue to the impressive granite quarries and site of the Unfinished Obelisk, thought to have belonged to Queen Hatshepsut. Arrive at your historic luxury hotel. Dating back to 1899, the property was built by Thomas Cook to house European travellers, among them Sir Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher and Agatha Christie, whose novel Death on the Nile, included this Victorian palace. Board a felucca (traditional sailboat) to sail around Elephantine Island, and later dine in your hotel’s famed 1902 restaurant.

Day 11 - Abu Simbel & Cairo
Fly to Abu Simbel and discover the commanding twin temples of Ramses II — Egypt’s longest-ruling pharaoh — and his wife, Queen Nefertari. Located on the banks of Lake Nasser, this site is both an ancient and a modern engineering marvel. Return to the airport and fly to Cairo via Aswan. Check in to your hotel and spend the remainder of the day at leisure.

Day 12 - Cairo
This morning, visit the necropolis of Sakkara, site of the storied Step Pyramid of King Djoser and the oldest-known Egyptian pyramid. Then, discover the pyramids built for Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus on the Giza Plateau. Take in the panorama of the Giza Plateau, backdropped by the soaring pyramids. Also see the fabled Great Sphinx, a monumental limestone statue. Tonight, toast to your travels with fellow guests at a farewell dinner.

Day 13 - Cairo
Transfer to the airport and board your flight home.
