    4.5 - Excellent

    There was a marked difference between the two parts of this tour. The Jordan half was notably inferior with poor hotels and a guide who was knowledgeable but rather disinterested in any sort of engagement and gave the impression that he'd rather be elsewhere. Egypt couldn't have been more different with caring contacts throughout. I was extremely well looked after from only a few minutes after leaving the plane in Cairo right through to passport control on departure. Instructions were very clear, the itinerary was full and carefully planned and the guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and engaged. I can't think of any way that the Egypt leg of this tour could have been bettered.
