Egypt: The Grand Tour


Main Trip to Egypt: October 14-26, 2020
Optional Postlude to Petra: October 26-30, 2020

Step back in time with Eric Dorfman, Director at Carnegie Museums of Natural History, to visit Pharaohs and pyramids, King Tut and temples, mummies and monuments. The banks of the River Nile unveil themselves to you as an unparalleled panoply of ancient, historical and natural treasures. A Nile river cruise offers the chance to stroll the streets of secluded villages, have picnics on the bank of the river, or nap on the deck as the winds of Africa gently nudge you from one Pharaonic treasure to another. Just like Agatha Christie in the early 1900s, stay at two of the world’s most amazing hotels – the elegant Old Winter Palace in Luxor and the stunning Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan, where she actually penned Death on the Nile. End your journey with an optional extension in Jordan exploring the long-lost, rose-colored city of Petra, the forgotten center of the ancient Nabatean culture. It doesn’t get much better than that!
