The colossal pyramids, temples and tombs of ancient Egypt are the highlights of this adventure vacation in Egypt. Our Great Sites of Egypt cruise begins in Cairo with two days of touring with a private Egyptologist guide, visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. A five-day luxury Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan brings us to ancient monuments, tombs and temples along the fertile Nile Valley. All cabins onboard the boat feature picture windows through which to observe the passing life of the river, looking much as it always has. There is an optional excursion to Abu Simbel, whose Great Temples of Ramses II and Nefertari were recreated in their entirety when the Aswan Dam’s construction flooded what is now Lake Nassar. Throughout the itinerary, you will be accompanied by our own Egyptologist guide, insuring you depart this ancient land filled with the stories and memories of a grand and timeless people.
