    DAY 1: CAIRO
    Immerse yourself in the madness: grab a pair of authentic Roy Bands sunnies from the bazaar, embrace the kitsch world of Dr. Ragab's Pharaonic Village then share a sahlab (sweet, hot custard drink with nuts) and a sheesha pipe with your new travel buddies. Arrive in Cairo and get to grips with this busy city.

    DAY 2: CAIRO - PYRAMIDS - SPHINX
    Nobody's quite sure how the Sphinx lost its nose. Some say Napoleon's soldiers blew it off with a cannonball. Others say it simply wore away over time. Either way, as far as features go it's a pretty big one to lose. Take a trip to the Egyptian Museum, see the golden mask of King Tutankhamun. Drive out to the edge of the desert to explore the pyramids and the nearby Sphinx. Visit the Valley Temple of King Khafre (Chephren). Catch the night train bound for Aswan.

    DAY 4-6: ABU SIMBEL - NILE CRUISE

    DAY 7: LUXOR - VALLEY OF THE KINGS
    Be nice to your donkey and he'll take you on a peaceful sunrise stroll past fields of alfalfa into the Valley of the Kings. Upset him and you'll be sore for days. Another overnight train back to Cairo. Journey to the Valley of the Kings on donkeys. Visit the outstanding Temple of Hatshepsut. Enjoy an afternoon at your own leisure, perhaps visit Luxor Temple and the bazaar? Overnight recliner train back to Cairo.

    DAY 8-9: CAIRO
    Time for one last walk around Cairo. Head south from Bab al-Futuh (one of the medieval north gates), past the old Islamic monuments that stand watch over the bazaars. Time to leave the madness of Cairo behind.

    HIGHLIGHTS: Cairo - Dahab - Aqaba - Wadi Rum - Petra - Dana - Kings Highway - Amman - Jerash

    Day 1: Cairo
    Cairo, like someone you already know, needs no introduction. Spend time here walking (like an Egyptian, if you want), and getting to grips with this legendary city. Arrive in Cairo and get acquainted with this epic Egyptian city. Today is just an arrival day and no activites are planned until there is a group meeting around 6pm. Keep an eye out on the hotel lobby confirming the when and the where.

    Day 2: Dahab
    Drive from Cairo to Dahab, and stay the next three nights in a little bungalow, with the sound of the Red Sea to lull you off to sleep. It's a 9-hour drive (and not always scenic) so bring a deck of cards.

    Day 3-4: Dahab
    Whooaahh, wind down and ease yourself into the slow lane in Dahab. The snorkelling is excellent; here's your chance to see Nemo live on stage. On Day 4 there's an optional excursion to St Katherine's Monastery and climb Mount Sinai.

    Day 5: Dahab - Aqaba
    You might want to wake up early this morning for a final dip in the Red Sea before heading off to Jordan, where you'll meet your new local guide. Short drive to Nuweiba where you take the ferry to Aqaba in Jordan. Unreliable ferry timetables mean you could be waiting in the ferry terminal for a few hours so bring a book. Ferry staff will collect your passports and return them on arrival in Aqaba with your free Jordanian visa. On disembarking in Aqaba, you'll meet your Jordanian tour leader.

    Day 6: Wadi Rum - Petra
    Look up 'desert' in the dictionary and you might find a picture of Wadi Rum. Unless there's a picture of a chocolate cake, which means you can't spell. Awesome jeep tour into the desert. Continue the journey to Petra.

    Day 7: Petra
    Petra (the Indiana Jones bit) is huge. After a long day of exploring you should indulge in a Turkish bath back at the hotel. They'll slap, slather, slough and scrub until you're as shiny as a billiard ball. Explore the ancient city of Petra. Wander through the narrow 'siq' and the numerous tombs, temples and public buildings - as well as the rock-hewn amphitheatre. Relax with an optional Turkish Bath at the hotel.

    Day 8: Dana - Kings Highway - Amman
    There's evidence of Paleolithic, Egyptian, Edomite, Assyrian, Nabataean and Roman civilisations at Dana. So, you could say it's been around for a while. Follow the ancient Kings Highway, a road that dates back to the Old Testament. Reach Dana and stroll though the ancient village, maybe visit Dana's craft centre to purchase attractive locally-made silver jewellery and charms. Stop by crusader castle at Shobak, originally built to protect the eastern flank of the Latin Kingdom. Visit the Greek Orthodox church of St. George, which houses a 6th century mosaic map depicting the old city of Jerusalem. Arrive in Amman and head out on the town.

    Day 9: Jerash
    Obviously you're not meant to taste the water in the Dead Sea, but it's kind of hard to resist. It's like licking the inside of an empty salt packet, but saltier. Morning tour of the grand ancient city of Jerash. Free time in the afternoon, maybe visit the Dead Sea or explore Amman further.

    Day 10: Amman
    See if you can find Al-Quds Falafel on Rainbow Street, and order their famous falafel sandwich. The recipe has been around for over 40 years. Can you guess the secret ingredients? Trip ends in the morning

Enjoy a homestay in the heart of Zululand, camp under the glow of a thousand stars and relax in the glamorous seaside city of Durban for a varied taste of awesome Africa.

    Day 1 Johannesburg
    It doesn't always have the best reputation, but Johannesburg has fascinating, vibrant places to explore like Soweto, Alexandra, Rosebank Flea Market and its wonderful museums.

    Days 2-3 Kruger National Park
    Created to control diminishing animal numbers due to hunting, Kruger National Park became official in 1926 and is now deservedly one of Africa's premier safari parks.

    Day 4 Swaziland/Hlane Royal National Park
    Once the private hunting ground of the Swazi royal family, Hlane Royal National Park's vast expanse of bushveld offers an amazing opportunity to track elephants and endangered rhinos on foot.

    Days 5-6 Mozambique Beach Camp
    One of Mozambique's many unspoiled beaches, Ponta Malongane is a popular diving spot due to its clear blue waters, extensive coral reefs and amazing tropical marine life.

    Day 7 St Lucia Estuary
    St Lucia Estuary is home to thousands of varieties of birds, mammals and reptiles - with its most popular residents being the hundreds of hippos and crocodiles.

    Day 8 Zululand
    The Valley of a Thousand Hills is the traditional heartland of the Zulu nation and its magnificent scenery is dotted with tribal communities amid the rolling hills.

    Day 9 Durban

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
