Accompanied by an expert Egyptian guide, this singular small-group journey through antiquity begins in storied Cairo. Visit the acclaimed Egyptian Museum, Memphis’s open-air museum, splendid Sakkara, and the astounding pyramids of Giza with their Great Sphinx. Traveling to Abu Simbel for a fascinating Lake Nasser cruise, see its imposing temples — the setting for a dramatic sound-and-light show, then sail on to ancient Nubia’s other outstanding temples: Amada, Wadi el-Seboua, New Kalabsha, and Philae. After touring the massive Aswan High Dam, depart on a classic Nile voyage, enjoying a sail on a traditional felucca and visiting Kom Ombo’s unusual temple and Edfu’s remarkably preserved Temple of Horus. Reaching Luxor, explore its awe-inspiring temple complexes on both banks. Finally in Cairo, tour the exotic Khan el-Khalili bazaar and historic Old Cairo. Discover fabled Petra, ancient Jerash, and Amman with an optional five-day/four-night post-tour Jordan extension. Economy airfare included in tour price.Read More >
