January 13-22, 2023


 Please join them for an adventure to ancient Egypt, as well as
its modern enjoyments on a Nile River cruise for the ages.
Arrive in Cairo, and explore the pyramids and Sphinx of Giza.
See the Ramses II statue in Memphis and King Tut’s tomb in
Giza’s brand new Grand Egyptian Museum. In Old Cairo, see the
Church of the Virgin Mary (also called the Hanging Church),
built in the place where Mary and Jesus were said to find refuge
during their flight to Egypt, and visit the Alabaster Mosque.
Next, fly to Luxor to embark on your Nile River cruise. You’ll
visit the Temple of Luxor, the Avenue of the Sphinxes (recently
restored and reopened), the monument of Karnak, and the Temple of Amun-Ra before enjoying an
onboard welcome reception on your ship. Visit the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens,
where the pristine tomb of King Tut was found with undisturbed riches and splendor. This incredible
cruise on the Nile River takes you to amazing ancient sites, including the twin temples at Kom Ombo,
devoted to the crocodile god Sobek-Ra and the falcon god Horus. Ponder the magnitude of the task of
building the pyramids with a visit to the granite quarries—where an unfinished obelisk still remains.
You’ll visit the Temple of Isis, then take a return flight to Cairo to wander the world’s largest open-air
museum, and browse the bustling maze of the endless bazaar in Cairo’s medieval alleys. Join them for a
once-in-a-lifetime vacation tour in Cairo, expedition to the Egyptian
pyramids, and a Nile River cruise you’ll never forget.
