Egypt and Jordan


Egypt is an extraordinary land. It is famous around the globe for the great Pyramids and the Sphinx, but Egypt has created many, many other wonders to share with the world. Egypt is the birthplace of written language. In Egypt, agriculture developed and the world’s first nation-state was born. Thirty royal dynasties ruled Egypt over a three thousand year period, creating glorious cities filled with then-unrivalled art and architecture—so magnificent that when the Greek Herodotus showed up in Egypt in the fifth century BC, he wrote, “Nowhere are there so many marvelous things, nor in the whole world beside are there to be seen so many things of unspeakable greatness.”

Jordan’s history can be traced back to prehistoric times.. Amongst its marvels, it offers Roman cities, castles, desert citadels, and biblical sites. The rich heritage of ancient civilizations is evident the minute you land. Jordan also offers a diversity that ranges from its modern capital, Amman; to wonders like Petra, Jerash, and the Dead Sea. The people of Jordan are friendly and love welcoming visitors to their extraordinary country.
