Treasures of Egypt

8 days - Designed on Request
Departing Saturday

Overview
Itinerary
Dates & Prices

If you have just a week, Treasures of Egypt is a perfect introduction to this land of antiquity! A stay in Cairo isn't complete without seeing the Pyramids and you will do just that before flying to Luxor to board your Nile River cruise ship for a 4-night cruise to Aswan. Along the way, walk in the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, where more than 70 tombs have been discovered. See the Temple of Horus, Egypt's second largest, the Temple of Isis and much more as your ship travels along the Nile to Aswan. By the time you reach Cairo, you'll wish your trip was longer! It's easy to add an excursion to Abu Simbel to this trip - and well worth the visit.
