CLASSIC ITINERARY

History Comes Alive

Few places in the world loom as large in the imaginations of the adventurous as Egypt. Who among us hasn’t dreamed about looking up in awe at the Great Pyramid of Giza or gazing upon the enigmatic Great Sphinx? A favorite chapter of world history, Egypt is home not only to the Pyramids of Giza — the last surviving wonder of the ancient world — but a wealth of temples, fortresses, tombs, and cities whose history stretches back nearly five millennia. Stand and ponder as scientists and historians have for hundreds of years about how and why these massive monuments were constructed. Journey up the Nile River as travelers before you have done for thousands of years, past groves of date palms and fields irrigated by the river’s life-giving waters.
