With one third of all of the world’s antiquities and the only remaining monument of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Egypt is a superlative destination: astounding, colossal, epic. For thousands of years, travelers have journeyed from all over the world to witness the glorious temples built by the pharaohs. Today, the country is stable, safe and on the brink of a massive influx of visitors. Now is the time to see it for yourself.
Indagare’s signature Treasures of Egypt itinerary is conveniently packaged to offer immersion in bustling Cairo and once-in-a-lifetime experiences at such monuments as the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx and King Tut’s Tomb—plus, you can voyage down the Nile River as the ancient pharaohs once did, now on a luxury yacht decked out with modern amenities.
What to Expect
On this journey, immerse yourself in the legendary sites of ancient Egypt from the exclusive vantage point of the Nile River, aboard Oberoi’s luxurious river cruiser, the Zahra. Traveling by water allows you to easily move from Luxor to Edfu and Aswan (avoiding hours of driving), while private, expert-guided tours at such iconic sites as the Valley of the Kings bring history to life. You will also have the chance to add on further exploration in Cairo, where you can enjoy exciting cultural experiences and private touring—plus, relax at the beautiful new Four Seasons.
Inspired by our sold-out Egypt 2018 Insider Journey, this packaged itinerary combines the best of Indagare’s destination expertise and insider intel. It includes set dates, hotels and activities—so you don’t have to worry about planning—but allows for flexibility, customization and free time to explore on your own. Itinerary highlights include:
