LUXURY AND LEARNING ON THE NILE
Where Bible History Comes Alive

Experience the splendor of the iconic wonder of the ancient world – the great Pyramids of Giza. Journey back in time as you explore the temples, tombs and monuments of the East and rarely visited West Valley of the Kings. Daily life in Ancient Egypt and the pharaohs journey to the afterlife come alive as you explore Valley of the Queens, Nobles and Workers on 2 full days. Witness exquisite Nile River landscapes reminiscent of ancient Egypt and Biblical times. Gain insight into Coptic and Islamic Egypt on expert-led walks. Plus Memphis, Saqqara, Abydos and Dendera, Luxor and Karnak temples and much more.

“Here Osiris and his worshippers lived; here Abraham and Moses walked; here Aristotle came; here, later, Mahomet learnt the best of his religion and studied Christianity; here, perhaps, our Savior’s mother brought her little son to open his eyes to the light. They are all gone from the body; but the Nile flows and the pyramids stand there still.”
– Florence Nightingale “Letters from Egypt” 1862-1869
