Ancient Egypt and the Nile River
About the Journey
Follow the course of the Nile River into the very heart of ancient civilizations on a 14-day exploration of Egypt’s rich heritage. Go in depth to learn about the unparalleled architectural and engineering skills of master pyramid builders and enjoy unique behind-the-scenes peeks at archaeological sites. Among the many highlights of this itinerary are the Great Pyramids and special private access to the paws of the Sphinx of Giza; the brand new, soon-to-be-opened Grand Egyptian Museum; the Valley of the Kings, with specially arranged access to Queen Nefertari’s Tomb; the fabulous Temple of Karnak complex; and the colossal statues of Ramesses II and his favorite queen at Abu Simbel.
Accommodations are deluxe and memorable with a luxurious seven nights on board the 5-star Nile Adventurer, bookended by two unique stays in Cairo at the legendary Mena House Hotel and the Four Seasons First Residence.
