Egypt Through The Ages

January 17, 2023 - February 2, 2023



This unique trip combines the very best of the ancient pharaonic sites with later Coptic (early Christian) and medieval Islamic sites. This is a luxurious, in-depth, small-group, all-inclusive, well-paced, 17-day trip.
Learn with a distinguished and engaging Egyptian scholar plus one of Egypt’s most experienced tour manager/guides.
Travel with a maximum of just 16 guests plus your two leaders. Enjoy the best accommodations, including 10 nights at luxurious, 5-star hotels in Giza, Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan; a three-night Nile cruise aboard a comfortable, eight-cabin dahabiya (traditional Nile sailboat); and two nights in the center of Medieval Cairo at a boutique, 17-suite hotel.
Highlights include:

Touring the amazing Giza pyramids and Sphinx as well as Saqqara’s Step Pyramid of Djoser and newly-discovered, closed-to-the-public, Tomb of Wah Ti.
Exploring spectacular museum collections in Cairo: the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, the Museum of Islamic Art, and either the historic Egyptian Museum OR, if it is open, the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza.
Discovering with your experts one of the world’s greatest cities—Cairo, the “City of 1,000 Minarets.” See magnificent Islamic architecture spanning the Fatimid, Mameluke, Circassian, Ayyubid, and Ottoman periods.
Exploring the astounding temple complex of Karnak as well as Luxor Temple, plus spectacular royal mortuary temples and tombs in the Valleys of the Kings and Queens, such as those of Seti I and Nefertari.
Cruising the Nile from Esna to Aswan aboard an eight-cabin sail boat, away from the convoys of large riverboats, so that we visit remarkable temples without the typical crowds. From the spacious top deck, observe timeless pastoral scenes of feluccas, farmers, herders, and village life during a visit to a farming community.
Flying to Abu Simbel to visit the stunning and enormous rock-cut temples of Ramesses II and Nefertari.
The option to extend your trip with the seven-day, post-tour extension to the Siwa Oasis and Alexandria.
