Description

9 days |  11 days with Cairo extension

Demystify sites that define 5,000 years of history as you sail along the Nile River.

The perfect day in Egypt involves a little falafel, a little stroll through the souks, and a whole lot of ancient history. We’re talking deciphering hieroglyphics at towering temples and snapping photos of the Pyramids of Giza that look just like the ones you see in history books. Then, take to the Nile—because no trip to Egypt is complete until you discover the sites spanning the east and west banks of Africa’s longest, and most famous, river.
