A country nearly as old as civilization itself, Egypt brings out the explorer in all of us. With sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids, and towering Pharaonic temples you’ll be mesmerized by the history of Egypt. Visit the Valley of the Kings in Luxor where Tutankhamen’s tomb was unearthed. See the glittering finds in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Hop off a Nile boat to visit Edfu or a colorful spice market in Aswan as you cruise the longest river in the world. A Nile cruise is one of those journeys you feel it imperative to take, at least once in a lifetime. See temples that have stood for thousands of years deeply etched with hieroglyphs that tell the story of an ancient civilization. Relax on the deck of your river boat and watch as donkey-carts lumber past ramshackle internet cafes. You’ll find that the sunsets on the Nile are some of the most gorgeous you’ve seen! The Nile has been the lifeline of civilization in Egypt since the Stone Age and explorers have long been fascinated by the river, people, and the ancient tombs and temples that dot the landscape.
