Immersive Egypt Experiences

Feel the ocean breeze in one of Antiquity’s greatest cities

Absorb the rich history of Alexandria – the ‘Pearl of the Mediterranean’ – by taking in the remnants of its Graeco-Roman glory, from its theater and catacombs to the solitary spire of Pompey’s Pillar and its slew of fantastic museums. Stroll the lively Corniche to the modern edition of the celebrated library of legend: the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, itself a splendid architectural feat.

Get lost in the world’s greatest museums

Of Egypt’s enormous troves of ancient, medieval and Islamic treasure, vast stockpiles are arrayed on open display in its several superb – and suitably mammoth – museums. Be amazed by the masks and mummies of Downtown’s venerable Egyptian Museum, a gem in itself, and marvel at the soon-to-be-opened Grand Egyptian Museum by the Pyramids of Giza, a gargantuan assemblage of priceless items, including the coveted collection of Tutankhamun.

Rewind millennia by stepping into secret tombs

Absorb the grandeur of Luxor’s unrivaled assemblage of ancient temples and stand in amazement at the feet of the Colossi of Memnon before ducking beneath the earth’s surface at the Valleys of Kings and Queens. Enter the most legendary tombs – such as that of King Tutankhamun – as well the most elaborately adorned and the most rarely seen, among them a few tombs that remain strictly off-limits to the general public.

Cop a dose of desert adventure in Sinai

Feel a boost of adrenaline on an off-road adventure through the hauntingly beautiful wadis of Egypt’s Sinai, and soak up the silence of the desert on hikes up remote, rocky canyons, to be greeted by gracious Bedouin hosts. Peer into Moses' Well on a visit to the UNESCO-listed St. Catherine Monastery, and reap the rewards of a sunrise summit of Mount Sinai with its sweeping, indelible views.

Gaze in awe at the pyramids – minus the crowds

Those looking to further enhance their experience can beat the tourist crush with exclusive sunrise access to the great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Walking at the feet of the sole surviving Wonder of the Ancient World, you’ll enjoy a most eminent guide: Egyptologist and former Minister of Antiquities Dr. Zahi Hawass. A similar experience of solitude awaits at Egypt’s grande dame of museums, allowing you to peruse its massive collection before it opens to the public.

Sail along the legendary Nile

Embark on a sumptuous cruise up the Nile from Luxor and Karnak, drifting deep into Upper Egypt, with stops at the magnificent Temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo, the latter in honor of the crocodile god. Alighting in tranquil, breezy Aswan, float further aboard a felucca for some Nubian tea on the delightful islands that straddle the Nile.

Soak up the span of ages in Cairo – ‘The Victorious’

Crack the surface of the vast metropolis known as ‘Umm al-Dunya’, the Mother of the World, the living, breathing ‘city of a thousand minarets’. Descend into a secret tomb at the Step Pyramid of Sakkara and be whisked from ancient Memphis to the nostalgic Downtown. Taste Turkish coffee in the heart of a maze-like medieval bazar – the Khan el-Khalili – and admire the highlights of a long Coptic heritage and a glorious, unrivaled skyline of Mamluk mosques.

Snorkel at the Red Sea’s most spectacular sites

Take a dip in the crystal clear waters off the coast of Sinai for a glimpse of some of the world’s most dazzling reefs, with a mind-boggling spectrum of biodiversity to glimpse while floating at the surface. Enjoy snorkeling jaunts to laidback Dahab’s Blue Hole and the stunning coral landscape of Ras Mohamed National Park, or spend a day hopping from reef to reef en route to Tiran Island.

Delight in the charms of Egypt’s indigenous cultures

At Aswan’s Nubian Museum, be exposed to the fascinating history and culture of the indigenous people of Upper – or Southern – Egypt. Sample Nubian delicacies deep in the Sahara, not far from the Sudanese border at Abu Simbel, and taste the best of Bedouin cuisine in the twisting valleys of Sinai while enjoying a cultural treat: becoming mesmerized by the movements of belly dancers and the spinning of tanoura – Sufi-inspired skirts.
