Accompanied by an expert Egyptian guide, this singular 15-day 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 three-night 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 four-night 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. With two final nights in Cairo, tour the exotic Khan el-Khalili bazaar and historic Old Cairo. Discover fabled Petra, ancient Jerash, and Amman with an optional 5-day/4-night post-tour Jordan extension.
