The tour to Egypt and Jordan was a life changing experience. To see that many sites in that short of time would have been impossible if I had tried to travel solo. It was worth every cent spent to travel with G Adventures.

The tour allows you to see many things that you would normally not be able to arrange. Overall, it was an excellent overview of Egypt and Petra. And you had opportunity to experience many aspects of society that you would normally not be able to traveling alone or in very large groups.

Well planned itinerary, covered the areas I really wanted to see. Without G Adventures pre-planning I could never have covered as much territory as I did in the time I was there.

The trip offered a refreshing experience, in two neighbouring Islamic countries that are somewhat culturally distinct from each other.

It was a great experience, somehow we managed to see and experience all the highlights of Egypt & Jordan. We had friendly and knowledgeable leaders, and I was lucky I think, to be part of a small group of 6 of very friendly and compatible people.
