Exploring Egypt aboard Sun Goddess
Explore Egypt’s spectacular highlights on this 9-day exploration in the Land of Pharaohs and Gods. Enter iconic pyramids to discover impossibly vibrant depictions of life in ancient Egypt. Be dwarfed by Karnak Temple’s 70-foot columns and discover the long-held secrets of the Valley of the Kings. A Nile cruise has been a rite of passage for generations, and we will follow in the paths of Mark Twain and Agatha Christie as we explore the banks of this fabled river aboard the graceful Sun Goddess. See legendary sites like the Sphinx, Luxor Temple, and Abu Simbel while traveling by private flights and elegant small ship. As with our 12-day Passage Through Egypt aboard Oberoi Philae, the many exceptional pleasures of this shorter expedition also include first-class hotels and the company of renowned Egyptologists.
