Short Description

Journey through ancient Egypt and see some of the most revered monuments in the world. Stand before the mysterious Sphinx and the mammoth Great Pyramids of Giza. Feel the grandeur of the imposing statues at Abu Simbel. Delve into incredibly well-preserved underground tombs in the Valley of the Kings, and gaze upon the ancient symbols carved in stone at the temples at Luxor, Kom Ombo and Edfu. Lose yourself in the collection of riches at Cairo's Egyptian Museum. And cruise the life-giving waters of the great Nile - traveling like ancient royalty in your luxurious Presidential Suite. An Egyptologist-Guide accompanies you throughout your journey, to provide historical insight that will make your journey come alive.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
