In grade school, you learned that Egypt was the cradle of Western civilization. You might even recall 1 or 2 hieroglyphics from the blackboard. 2021 is the year to stop remembering and book. From its balmy Mediterranean coast to stark endless Saharan dunes, Egypt is so much more than you thought. You gasp at The Pyramids of Giza and when seeing the iconic Tutankhamun Tomb in Luxor, even at the Nile River as it snakes through the sand. But until you experience remote Abu Simbel with gigantic statues of Ramses II and Queen Nefertari, you have not yet felt this intensity. Combine our luxury Nile cruise, Cairo museums and markets, Sphinx and Pyramids presented to you by our private Egyptologist guide. Top hotels and cruise ships, wonderful small group meals, meetings with locals and personal assistance all enhance your experience.
