Advice for traveling in a tour through Egypt and Jordan?

I will be taking a tour
through Egypt and Jordan at the end of April, and am looking for advice in terms of what clothes would be appropriate (I am a married woman in her late 20's, traveling with my husband, father, and brother), what kind of things I should bring or avoid, or any advice that you can give (preferrably if you have been on a similar trip to that part of the world).

The tour has a religious theme with regards to the itinerary (visiting lots of historical religious sites, etc), but I don't think it is religious in, er, spirit.
I've already read that women should try to dress modestly (covering arms and legs), and that western women should wear dark sunglasses to diminish the eye-contact (and resulting over-familiarity) issue.
I am also wondering about the weather at that time of year. Will it be hot? Cold? Should I even consider bringing sandals, or just stick to walking/hiking shoes?
Any other thoughts people can contribute?
