Our Itinerary, Sites

One of the reasons that we chose this tour from Ancient Adventures is that it really allowed us to see a tremendous number of sites and yet still gave us enough time to relax and wander about on our own. Yeah, a few of the 'outings' are a bit cheesy (I can't imagine that a Bedouin tribe taking a bunch of tourists out into the desert are doing so because they're intrigued by yet another bunch of privileged travellers) but they were certainly fun.

Note that we didn't see everything listed, because we often changed the plans for the day on the fly. Where we have pictures, I've linked to the pages for them.
