December 6–20, 2021

statuesAccompanied 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.  Traveling to Abu Simbel, embark on a fascinating three-night Lake Nasser cruise to ancient Nubia’s outstanding temples:  Abu Simbel – host to a dramatic sound-and-light show, Amada, Wadi el-Seboua, and New Kalabsha.

After touring Aswan’s massive dam and the Temples of Philae, depart on 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 for a two-night stay, explore its awe-inspiring temple complexes.  With three final nights in Cairo, tour the exotic Khan el-Khalili bazaar, the acclaimed Egyptian Museum, and historic Old Cairo.  Discover fabled Petra, ancient Jerash, and Amman with an optional 5-day/4-night post-tour Jordan extension, December 20-24.
