The Cradle of Civilization
Step into the land of the Pharaohs, discover the ancient treasures, culture and remnants of a country with a long, rich and fascinating past. See 5500 years of history living through the people of Egypt, in the markets and squares, along the banks of the Nile and in the red- and orange-hued setting sun reflected in the sand of the Sahara Desert.
Will you follow in the footsteps of Cleopatra, cruise the Nile in a traditional wooden sailboat known as a felucca, camel-trek around the ancient pyramids and sip tea or eat baba ghanouj with the locals? Or would you rather just chill by the pool on your five-star Nile cruise ship while experiencing Egyptian hospitality at its best?
On the west bank of the Nile River and the Valley of the Kings, we’ll discover magnificent tombs carved deep into desert rocks. These tombs tell their own stories through the treasures of the afterlife, gifted to generations of Pharaohs. Here, you’ll discover the intricate relationship of Islam and other religions existing side by side in Egypt, from the mosques of Islamic Cairo to the churches of Cairo’s Coptic population, as well as the magnificent synagogues of the city’s Jewish community. At night, we’ll roam the markets of Cairo and discover antique books, trinkets, and handcrafted jewelry boxes alongside Kilim carpets.
Egypt is a gateway to discover a land of ancient monuments, and is filled with stunning remnants of the past. From witnessing the great Sphinx of Giza and its striking temples, all the way to culinary adventures of tastes and scents; join us as we travel, eat and connect throughout the cradle of civilization.
