Subject: Egypt and Jordan
Good morning Ziners,

We are planning a 2 week trip to Egypt and perhaps Jordan in February. The tour we are looking at would allow us one day at Petra, driving from Amman and back the same day. Has anyone been to Petra and do you feel that the time allowed would be sufficient to get an overview of the place?

While in Egypt we also have the option of flying from Aswan to Abu Simbel for a day. The trip is expensive (nearly $800 CAD for 2 people) to go to Abu Simbel. Is it worth the price? We tend not to go back to the same place twice so this would likely be our only time in Egypt.

Thank you, Pauline in cold Southern Ontario
