Following their strong performance, Scenic has added additional departures for its Egypt and Jordan tours, with new dates added from September to November 2019. Also, guests who book any departure from September 2018 through November 2019 before August 31 can receive free air or $1,000 in savings.
The Treasures of Egypt package takes guest on an 11-day cruise and land trip along the Nile. Aboard the 18-cabin Sanctuary Sun Boat III, passengers will sail from Luxor to Aswan. On land they will stay in five-star hotels close to local markets. Along the way, travelers will see the Great Pyramids and Sphynx, the temples of Ramses II and Nefertari, the Luxor Museum and many local markets.
In Jordan, the Kingdom of Jordan Unveiled offers a 10-day land-based tour. Along the way, participants will spend two nights in Amman, watch a reenactment of Roman chariot races, visit the World Heritage city Petra, see the desert at Wadi Rum and float or cruise on the Red Sea.
Those who would like to do both can choose The Essence of Egypt and Jordan. The package combines the two trips into a 20-day journey. Also available are two four-day extensions to Dubai and Israel.
In Dubai, travelers will see the Burj al Arab, Al Fahidi Fort and Dubai Museum. They will also ascend to the world’s tallest tower and go on a desert dune safari. On the Israel extension, those who join will see the Mount and Monastery of Temptation, the Old City of Jerusalem and the Wailing Wall.
