Egypt Eternal with Penta

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, visitors can see these ancient treasures alongside new wonders—from the groundbreaking Grand Egyptian Museum (which is slated to become the largest archaeological museum in the world when it opens) to the glamorous luxury Oberoi yachts that cruise up and down the Nile.

In the words of Indagare founder—and your trip host—Melissa Biggs Bradley: “The awe that you feel in the shadow of the pyramids or when surrounded by the still vibrant colors in Nefertari’s Tomb must be experienced to be understood. There is simply no way to comprehend the immensity of this history without going—or returning—as tombs continue to be discovered and treasures unveiled. As the world opens back up after the last two years, I believe that there will never be a better moment in our lifetime than right now to explore Egypt’s wonders.”

A spot on this trip may be reserved with a 50% non-refundable deposit, per person, with the remaining balance to be paid in full by March 1, 2023.

For this special journey, we are thrilled to partner with Penta to give you unmatched access to Egypt. Highlights of this itinerary include the opportunity to:

  • Meet with experts in the field of Egyptology—including the famous archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass—for exclusive access to such monuments as the Sphinx and the awe-inspiring Pyramids of Giza, as well as the groundbreaking Grand Egyptian Museum, the world’s newest archaeological museum (scheduled to be fully open by the end of 2022), which will become the largest archaeological museum in the world when open and will contain the definitive collection of artifacts from ancient Egypt.

  • Explore the many treasures of the vast Egyptian landscape with ease (avoiding hours of driving) while sailing down the magnificent Nile River on board the pampering Oberoi Zahra — which you will have all to yourself, as we have reserved the entire boat just for our group.

  • Experience expert-guided touring at the legendary cities, temples and tombs of the Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel, Aswan, Philae, Edfu, Kom Ombo and Luxor.

  • Visit the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (with its famous “Mummies Room”), and enjoy expert-guided historic and cultural touring in bustling Cairo, including a walking tour of the winding streets of the Old City of Cairo and shopping at the Khan El-Khalili bazaar (reputed to be the largest bazaar in the Middle East).

  • Enjoy an exclusive visit to the historic Abdeen Palace, which was a former residence of the royal family of Egypt and today is one of the official residences and principal workplace of the President of Egypt—in addition to housing a unique collection of artifacts and art.

  • Bring history to life with immersive activities like cocktails at the storied Old Cataract Hotel or a hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings.

  • Experience an emerging destination in comfort, with an itinerary featuring five-star accommodations (at the St. Regis Cairo and aboard the Oberoi Zahra), expert guides, pre-planned transfers and meals, VIP airport assistance and more—with the perfect combination of three nights in Cairo and five nights sailing down the Nile.

  • Add on an Indagare-designed, four-night post-trip adventure to Jordan or the coast of the Red Sea.

  • Worry less, experience more: Indagare’s expert team will help you navigate a safe and responsible travel experience—and help plan custom trip extensions. Plus: you’ll be guided through the new travel landscape by our founder Melissa Biggs Bradley and our most trusted local partners, and you’ll have complimentary 24/7 access to the emergency medical, security and evacuation services of Global Rescue, while on the ground.
