What To Expect:
Egypt Travel Tour Highlights
Experience Egypt from a unique perspective where nothing is off-limits. This itinerary combines the must see-highlights and takes them a step further, allowing for exclusive access to sites that are normally not open to the public. Begin with the classic ancient monuments, including the Great Pyramids, where you will take a private tour inside the Sphinx complex and the Saqqara Pyramids as well as an after-hours tour of the National Egyptian Museum with the on-site curators. Walk through Tahir Square, the now infamous area that was the heart of the Egyptian Revolution in early 2011, and get an insiders perspective of the uprising that changed the course of Egyptian history. From Cairo, take a chartered plane to the dreamy Siwa Oasis, located in the far western reaches of the Egyptian Saraha Desert. Steeped in history, this area is one of the most fasicinating sites in Egypt and often overlooked on many itineraries. The oasis is known to have been settled as far back as 10,000 BCE. Explore the surrounding area from your base at the Adrère Amellal, a hotel stay as unique as they come. In perfect harmony with the environment, this hotel is out of a dream, built in the Siwan style, surrounded by ancient olive and palm groves, a pool fed by a natural spring, and exquisite cuisine that includes traditional dishes cooked in honey-glazed clay pots. Conclude your journey with a seven-night cruise on the Nile’s most luxurious sailing vessel, the Dahabiya, exploring ancient cities of the Nile with your own personal Egyptologist.
