Group Trip

Discover the wonders of ancient Egypt while staying in luxury hotels and travelling in style. This trip includes four nights onboard the SunBoat IV, a magnificent Nile cruiser. There’s no better way to sail down Egypt’s fabled river.

You’ll visit the enigmatic Sphinx, the temples of Luxor and The Valley Of The Kings And Queens. At the Step Pyramid of King Zoser, you’ll see the world’s oldest standing stone structure. Over at the Pyramids of Geezer, you’ll see the only surviving relic of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The history of ancient Egypt lasted roughly from 3100 BC until the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC. The cultural legacy of ancient Egypt and its Pharaohs continues to fascinate, arguably more than any other ancient civilization.

For those wanting to venture further, you can join an optional Jordan extension. You’ll visit Amman, Madaba, Wadi Rum and the red sand desert landscape of Petra.
