We had a great time on our trip. We never felt unsafe. Yes it was hot but the plus side was no crowds which was wonderful. I was glad we started in jordan and ended in cairo so the weather got cooler as we went. Our travel company did a great job organizing everything. The pickups and dropoffs were always seamless. Our guides were all really good, especially our guide in luxor and Aswan. He was a wealth of information.
We really loved seeing Petra and wadi rum in jordan. The temples and tombs in egypt by valley of the kings were amazing. The pyramids were much bigger than we had pictured. Being able to go inside the great pyramid was really special. We really liked the catacombs and biblioteque in Alexandria but felt very rushed at both stops. It would have nice to spend more time there.
I wish I would have known that the guides wouldn't be able to text usa phone numbers. We spent over $125 to have texting added for overseas with our phone company because the info provided said we would need to be able to communicate with our guides. It also would have been helpful to know that the guides all wanted us to use the what's app feature. We were unable to load that on my phone when we were there, but had I known that info ahead of time I would have made sure to have that app downloaded before we left.
