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 journeyed from all over the world to witness the glorious temples built by the pharaohs. Today, Egypt is stable, safe and on the brink of a massive influx of visitors. Now is the time to see it for yourself.
What to Expect
In the words of Indagare’s founder, Melissa Biggs Bradley: “Words really cannot express the awe that you feel in the shadow of the pyramids or when surrounded by the still vibrant colors in Nefertari’s Tomb. There is simply no way to understand it without going—or returning as tombs continue to be discovered and treasures unveiled. Having just returned from my third visit, on our first Insider Journey on the Nile, I believe that there will never be a better time to explore Egypt’s wonders in our lifetime than right now.”
On this special Insider Journey, inspired by the success of our sold-out Journey in 2018, you will meet with experts in the field of Egyptology—including the famous archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass—for exclusive access to such monuments as the Sphinx, as well as touring at the Pyramids of Giza, the Khan El-Khalili bazaar and King Tut’s Tomb. Then, you can immerse yourself in the legendary cities, tombs and temples 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 Philae and the Valley of the Kings and special immersion experiences like camel rides and cocktail receptions at legendary hotels bring history to life.
