Accompanied by an expert Egyptian guide, this singular 15-day small group journey through antiquity reveals a storied land’s treasures. In Cairo, visit Memphis’s open-air museum, splendid Sakkara, and the astounding Pyramids of Giza with their Great Sphinx. After touring Aswan’s massive dam, embark on a fascinating four-night Lake Nasser cruise through ancient Nubia, exploring the outstanding temples at Philae, New Kalabsha, Wadi el-Seboua, Amada, and Abu Simbel–the setting for a dramatic sound-and-light show. Return to Aswan for a classic three-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, the world’s “greatest open-air museum,” explore its awe-inspiring temple complexes. With three final nights in Cairo, tour the exotic Khan el-Khalili bazaar, historic Old Cairo, and the acclaimed Egyptian Museum. Discover fabled “rose-red” Petra, ancient Jerash, and Amman with an optional 5-day/4-night post-tour Jordan extension.
