Where should I start & end (Cairo, Luxor, Jerusalem, Petra)?
I am planning a trip for the end of the year. I have a free flight that I have to take before the end of the year with American Airlines and I want to visit the following sites:
- Cairo (Giza and the Pyramids)
I am not sure what city I should fly into to begin my trip. American can get me to either Tel Aviv or Cairo. From there I have had many suggestions:
- Take a train (at night) from Cairo to Luxor and then fly to Tel Aviv. After seeing Jerusalem, take a tour bus into Jordan (after switching buses) and spend a couple days in Petra then take a bus to Amman or back to Tel Aviv and fly back to Cairo for my return home.
Has anyone taken a train from Cairo to Luxor? If so, how was it?
Is there a train to Jerusalem from Cairo?
Has anyone taken one of the many tours from Jerusalem to Petra? How was it?
Any suggestions you could provide would be great!!
I have tried a couple travek agencies but they all include airfare and I already have the free flight that I have to use.
