Independent Travel Information of Egypt to Jordan by Ferry

Tour Code: TEG225
If you plan to go on to Jordan after Egypt tour, there are two travel ways available: by air or by crossing the Red Sea by ferry. For most tourists, the best way is by air and they usually fly from Cairo to Amman, because the two cities are connected by frequent flights. However, if your last destination in Egypt is on Sinai Peninsula, like Sharm El-Shelkh or Dahab, it's also a nice choice to cross the Red Sea by ferry to reach Jordan.
