Cairo to Petra and return 3 days/2nights Approx

Hi Everyone!

I am researching a trip to Petra from Cairo for only a few days. I have searched some travel agencies in Cairo, but cannot find any that do only a few days. Mostly they are 7 days. Would consider the day trip, but would prefer to stay overnight in Petra.

I am very inclined to do it through Cairo agents, they need the business more than the larger companies.

My preference is Egypt Melody, but they only do the 7 day trip.

Does anyone know of any good companies that I can use or suggestions anyone?

Seems a shame to be in such a rush, nice to take your time of the journey getting there and back and seeing a few other sights apart from Petra. This part of the world runs at rather a slow pace, guess that has to be learned......

Why not post of the Nuweiba forum, believe the ferry goes from there, perhaps you will get some good advice on how to do it on your own.

We are taking a 3 night add on trip to Petra with Travel In Style. We'll already be traveling on a completely private tour with TIS and choose to add their Petra trip.

I am sure Omar will set you up with just a Petra trip even if you are not using them for the Egypt portion of your trip. Thus far we have been very pleased with their customer service and attention to detail.

Here is a link to their Jordan page:
