Full description
Day 1:
Start the tour at 8:30 AM when you will be picked up from your hotel or any point in Eilat. Set off for the Arava Border and pass over to the Jordan side. Meet your representative there and continue the drive to the Petra site. The drive takes about 2 hours in total. 

When you arrive, enjoy a tour of this iconic archaeological site with your guide. Visit the famous Treasury, the Amphitheater, and much more. After this, have lunch at a local restaurant. Return to Israel and set off on an overnight 10-hour drive to Cairo making a short procedural stop at the Egyptian border.

Day 2:
When you arrive in Cairo, visit the pyramids, the sphinx, the market, and the museum. Then, eat lunch and go to your 4-star hotel for dinner and your overnight stay.

Day 3:
After breakfast at the hotel, visit the Saqqara and Memphis area, about 27 km south-west of Cairo. Learn about how Memphis was the ancient capital of Egypt and Saqqara was its necropolis. Hear stories about how the deceased pharaohs and sacred animals were ceremoniously transported from Memphis to be permanently enshrined in one of the many temples on the site.

Then, stop for lunch before continuing the tour to Old Cairo. See the Church of St-Sergius, a 5th-century basilica, built over a crypt where the Holy Family is believed to have stayed. Admire the spectacular Citadel of Saladin, built-in 1183 in the medieval stronghold tradition. Also, marvel at the Mohammed Ali Mosque, also known as the Alabaster mosque. Finally, transfer to the Taba Border, where your tour concludes.
