Accompanied by an expert Egyptian guide, this singular 15-day small group journey through antiquity reveals a storied land’s treasures. In 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 Aswan’s massive dam, depart on a classic four-night Nile voyage, enjoying a sail aboard 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. With two final nights in Cairo, tour the exotic Khan el-Khalili bazaar and historic Old Cairo. Discover fabled “rose red” Petra, ancient Jerash, and Amman with an optional 5-day/4-night post-tour Jordan extension.
