Back to where it all began
Egypt is an incomparably vast country, where centuries of civilization have crafted histories that entrance generations, and those civilizations' artifacts fill impressive museums around the world. From the pyramids that rise from the desert sands to the Nile River that winds through exotic terrain, all have had their part in shaping one of the world's most enduring dynasties and sustaining the world's premiere tourist destination.

It's a royal thing
One of the most impressive things about a visit to Egypt is the temples and monuments that honour centuries of revered gods and pharaohs, and other royal vestiges. Valley of the Kings is home to the pharaonic tombs of King Tut and Ramses the Great, while the counter for the queens has between 75 and 80 tombs belonging to queens of the 18th, 19th and 20th dynasties including that of Nefretiti. You'll also visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, the only woman ruler of ancient Egypt, and shrines to many ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.
The Egypt you know…and the one you don't
Few countries contain something as iconic as Egypt. The Great Pyramids, proclaimed by the Greeks to be among the Seven Wonder of the ancient world, have inspired artists for years and remain on many travel to-do lists. You'll see the Great Pyramid of Khufu and the Great Sphinx of Giza, before heading to the pyramid of King Zoser in Sakkara which precedes those at Giza by several centuries. You'll also visit the Aswan Dam after a cruise down the Nile - Africa's magnanimous river that has spawned terrible jokes and beguiled many a traveller. Your trip will be bookended with ample time in Cairo, where you can explore the ancient charms of the old quarter and peruse the world renowned Museum of Egyptian Antiquities.
Live like a Pharaoh
While in Cairo you'll stay at the Ramses Hilton or upgraded to the Sofitel El Gezirah (subject to availability) - a luxury hotel where an infinity pool pours into amazing views of the Nile. The TiYi and TuYu are deluxe Nile cruising ships that will be your home for the three nights you'll spend on the epic river, and a first class sleeper train will ferry you from Luxor to Cairo.
