Exploring The Ancient Treasures Of The Nile!

December 4-15, 2018 with Optional Red Sea Extension to December 17, 2018 - SOLD OUT

November 5-16, 2019

Dear Travelers:
Join us!... as we discover the extraordinary antiquities and colossal monuments of Egypt, November 5-16, 2019.

This program will include exciting recent discoveries in Egypt in addition to the wonders of the pyramids and ancient Egypt. Visits will include the fabulous new Alexandria Library (once the site of the greatest library in antiquity) and the new Alexandria National Museum which includes artifacts from Cleopatra’s Palace beneath the waters of Alexandria Harbor.

The expedition offers an excellent introduction to the land and life of ancient Egypt, from the great stone ramparts of the Temple of Ramses II at Abu Simbel, built during the New Kingdom, to the ultimate monuments of the Old Kingdom, the Great Pyramids and Sphinx!

Led by an excellent Egyptologist and author, Dr. Bojana Mojsov, learn about the history of ancient Egypt as you explore the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens at Thebes, where tombs of more than 60 pharaohs and 80 queens have been discovered, all plundered by grave robbers except for the rich discoveries in King Tutankhamun’s tomb and a tomb discovered in 2005. Dr. Mojsov’s recent book, Alexandria Lost, tells the extraordinary story of classical Alexandria.

On the opposite bank of the Nile at Luxor and Karnak, see the splendor and glory of Egypt during the finest hour of the New Kingdom.

There will also be opportunities to learn about contemporary Egyptian life, to marvel at the grace and beauty of feluccas at sail on the Nile, and to discover the desert shores of the Red Sea on the post-trip extension.

Join us!... for a treasured holiday in Egypt!
