About this Trip

Your remarkable 15-day small group journey through antiquity begins in Cairo and its environs with the Egyptian Museum and Memphis’s open-air museum.  Continue on to the astounding Pyramids of Giza with their Great Sphinx.  Embark on a fascinating three-night Lake Nasser cruise through ancient Nubia from Abu Simbel to Aswan, visiting important temples en route.  A classic four-night Nile cruise takes you from Aswan to Luxor, exploring splendid temples and statuary including the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.  Return to Cairo for a U.S. Embassy briefing.  Discover fabled “rose-red” Petra, ancient Jerash, and the capital of Amman, with an optional 5-day/4-night Jordan post-tour extension. This tour will be led by Ambassador Mark Johnson.
