Treasures of Egypt

Indagare’s Treasures of Egypt itinerary focuses on once-in-a-lifetime experiences of the some of the most incredible and famous monuments of human civilization. In addition to enjoying exclusive access to such monuments as the Pyramids of Giza (one of the Seven Wonders of the World), the Khan El-Khalili bazaar, the Sphinx, King Tut’s Tomb, Philae and the Temple of Edfu, we will also experience a luxury cruise down the Nile River and immerse ourselves in the culture of modern Egypt with visits to top city restaurants and performances.

What to Expect

Expert Egyptologists like Dr. Zahi Hawass will guide us through the legendary sites of Egypt, giving us an insider’s perspective on the history, the secrets and the myths that have surrounded these hallowed creations for centuries. We will also approach the Egyptian landscape from the water on a luxury Nile River cruise, which will allow us to easily visit other areas outside of bustling Cairo, like the ancient island Philae, the city of Nubia and the ruins at Edfu.

Finally, this journey explores the modern identity of Egypt with visits to popular restaurants, markets and artistic performances—all from the comfortable home base of the region’s best luxury hotels, with the possibility to add on a post trip experience at a desert oasis eco-lodge. This Insider Journey will explore the symbiotic relationship between the past and the present in one of the great cradles of civilization.
