Jordan and Egypt
Has anyone tried the G Adventure Jordan/Egypt package? Comments? They also have a package with Israel but the price spikes rather sharply if Israel is in the mix. I have 2 weeks so Jordan/Egypt seem like a good choice. Debating if I can do both solo and would I actually save money...
Is November a good time to go?
Is language a serious issue? Do people in each country know a little bit of English? What about signage? Are there any English signage at least in the main tourist areas?
How hard are these places logistically if I go solo? Let's say I budget 1 week (similar to the G-Adventure plan) for each country, is replicating that same plan feasible for a solo traveler? What method of transportation makes the most sense? I want to hit the main attractions (definitely Wadi Rum, Dead Sea and Petra for Jordan).
How is the safety? I'm a guy so I shouldn't be a prime target.
Also, is haggling normal?
