About the Trip;

Marvel over the Giza Pyramids outside of Cairo; be transported 5000 years as you stand in the vividly colored tombs and temples of Luxor’s Valley of the Kings; feel the warmth of the Nubian people; hear the songs of the Ancients in your heart as you sail down the timeless Nile River and submerge yourself in the sparkling waters of the Red Sea.

Our tours are led by licensed guides who are passionate about Egyptian history and culture and love sharing it with visitors. All tours are educational and informative but casual and fun!

The people of Egypt are its best feature. They are charming, kind, warm and full of wit and good humor. We are extremely lucky to have a local Egyptian, born and raised in Luxor, accompany us on all our tours and act as our own personal ambassador to Egypt.

And of course, nothing beats the culture. You have not lived until you have had some warm Egyptian bread with tahina, smoked an apple flavored water pipe (shisha), dressed up in a ghelabiya, attempted to belly dance or looked down on the world from atop a camel’s back (even if you’re screaming ‘Just take the picture and get me down from here!).

Egypt is an intoxicant that has captured the hearts of visitors since the beginning of time. Let us show it to you.

This is an amazing trip and we had a really fun group last year. Hope to see you there!
