Explore the Middle East with Bunnik Tours

Cruising the Nile with Bunnik Tours

Bunnik Tours have launched their 2018/19 Middle East brochure with two deluxe ‘in-style’ journeys through Egypt and Jordan.  These itineraries will see guests stay at some of the region’s most celebrated palace hotels, resorts and luxury camps and get a taste of the finer life with some truly enriching experiences.

New for the upcoming season is the deluxe 25-day Egypt & Jordan In Style. The tour begins in Amman, Jordan with an excursion in Jerash to visit the exquisitely preserved Roman cities of Umm Qais and Jerash.  Marvel at the ruins as the local guide brings the historical cities to life.

Soak in the vastness of the landscape below from the biblical site of Mt Nebo, the ridge from which Moses is said to have seen the Promised Land.  Venture further into the desert to explore the Castles of Qasar A-Kharrana, Quseir Amra and the black basalt fort at Azraq.

A mesmerising experience awaits at Wadi Rum, the desert home of the Bedouin people.  Camp overnight at a luxury desert camp under a star-studded sky, before rising the next morning to head to Aqaba on the Red Sea.

Beyond the coastline, experience the magic of the Lost City of Petra at night as it is lit by more than 1,000 flickering candles.  Marvel at the ancient city bathed in an orange glow and be transported back to a different era.

Petra at Night with Bunnik Tours

Say goodbye to Jordan in style with a float in the Dead Sea to absorb its natural minerals before heading to Egypt to be immersed in another one of the oldest civilisations in the world.

In Egypt wonder at the spectacle of the Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx.  Go on to explore the heart of Cairo, along with other Egyptian highlights including the temples of Upper Egypt and spectacular views of the Nile.

Enjoy the vast Egyptian waterways first-hand with a four-day luxury cruise on Lake Nasser followed by a cruise on the Nile to Luxor. Explore the Luxor Temple, before heading to the West Bank to discover the Valley of the Kings.

There will be much to reminisce about at the farewell dinner in Cairo with so many highlights on this itinerary. Best-selling Egypt in Depth, Egypt, Israel & Jordan and Egypt & Jordan in Depth tours are expected to be popular again for the upcoming season, continually delivering unforgettable experiences.

Pioneers of the small group touring concept, Bunnik has a maximum group size of just 20 passengers in the Middle East.

“As one of the first countries we began running tours to, Egypt is a destination that is very close to our hearts and this is reflected in the experiences our clients have. Our Egyptologists really bring the ancient stones to life and at the same time share the modern culture of Egypt. It really is an incredible place to visit,” says founder Marion Bunnik.

Global Journeys consultant, Jemma has recently travelled to Egypt with Bunnik Tours.
