Subject: Egypt
Hello Ziners:

Am researching a trip to Egypt in January or February 2005. Any help from travelzine members who have been there would be appreciated.

We are budget travellers, usually don't like tours, but think that in Egypt it will probably be the way to go. Wondering if we should do an organized tour or hire a private guide.

We are also interested in going to Jordan (in particular to Petra) on the same trip.

Thanks, Pauline in Ontario, Canada
