Exploring the Exotic
The 8-day Egypt: Pyramids, Pharaohs & Ancient Treasures vacation begins with a welcome dinner and 3-days in Cairo exploring the Great Pyramids and Sphinx complex, Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, Citadel of Saladin, Great Mosque of Mohammad Ali and an opportunity to shop and dine in the Khan el-Khalili market, Cairo’s ancient souk.
The family vacation then shifts to Southern Egypt for a 3-day cruise on the Nile River, including a two-hour excursion on a traditional sailing craft called a felucca that has plied the river’s waters for thousands of years. Clients will then travel into the Valley of Kings to visit the tombs of pharaohs Tutankhamen and Ramses VI. One additional night in Cairo completes the trip and includes a farewell banquet.
A licensed Egyptologist accompanies clients throughout Cairo and through the Nile Valley. Other highlights of the trip include riding a camel at the Great Pyramids, learning to make papyrus, writing Egyptian hieroglyphics, receiving temporary Henna tattoos, dressing like an Egyptian and being entertained by Egyptian musicians, belly dancers and whirling dervishes. Junior adventures can play an art detective game while at the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities.
The 10-day option adds two exciting days following the Nile cruise in the city of Sharm el Sheikh, a resort destination perched at the tip of the Sinai Peninsula. Clients have the opportunity to snorkel among the tropical fish and colorful coral reefs of the Red Sea.
