We've completed our trip with AmaWaterways on their Secrets of Egypt and the Nile cruise tour. We've had a great time on this truly bucket list destination.
We begin today in Petra and end in the desert. This is our third day of our extension in Jordan as part of the AmaWaterways Secrets of the Nile & Egypt. Here's our first and second days if you want to catch up.
The Treasury of Petra. This was actually a tomb, but originally people thought it contained great treasurers of ancient civilizations.
This is the first post about our trip to Egypt with Ama's Secrets of Egypt and the Nile cruise. We decided to add Ama's pre-cruise extension to Jordan. In fact we added an extra day in Amman even before the extension started - an extension to the extension. That was a good decision. Our flight landed at 9 pm local time and because we had a long layover in Frankfurt, total travel time was close to 24 hours. Jordan is 7 time zones ahead of our normal east coast time zone. We splurged on business class which made the trip very tolerable. The key was access to the United / Lufthansa business class lounges which allowed us to shower and clean up in Germany before our 4 hour flight to Amman Lebanon. The flight from Newark to Frankfurt was easy, given the excellent business class seats on our 787. Still, it's a very long travel day.
