With a renewed sense of stability and a recovering tourism industry, 2015 is a great time to visit this kingdom of pharaohs before it makes the “hot list” once again. Great Safaris is offering an all-inclusive, 13-day Egyptian tour de force with your very own Egyptologist, who will make the history of this ancient world come alive throughout your tour.
The tour begins in Cairo, where you'll meet up with your private Egyptologist and explore many ancient wonders of the world, including the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Cairo Museum and Khan el Khalili Bazaar. Then fly to Luxor where you will walk through the awe-inspiring Temples of Karnak and the Queen Hatshepsut's Temple before descending into brilliantly colored tombs in the Valley of the Kings.
Next up, enjoy a four-night cruise along the timeless Nile River from Luxor to Aswan, with stops at Edfu and Kom Ombo to see the Temples of Horus and Sobek. Disembark at Aswan for a visit to the High Dam and the Unfinished Obelisk before winging your way to the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel. Last but not least, you'll fly to Alexandria for a two-night stay in “The Pearl of the Mediterranean”. Stroll through Cleopatra's city and make sure to visit the Greco-Roman Museum, Pompeii's Pillar and Alexandria's famous fish market.
Great Safaris' Great Egyptian Discovery package takes all-inclusive to the next level, adding a full-time private Egyptologist escort to the standard inclusions when you book a travel group of four or more during 2015. Pricing for the Great Egyptian Discovery starts at $3,995 per person based on double occupancy; guests have three accommodation levels to choose from.
If you would like to spend more time on the Nile River, consider Great Safaris' 12-day Cruise Egypt: Gift of the Nile tour, where you will enjoy seven nights cruising from Luxor to Aswan, disembarking each day to discover ancient, storied sites. SPECIAL: Book the Cruise Egypt tour and your companion travels at 50 percent off the regular land rate! This offer is valid throughout 2015 and is not combinable with any other offers.
