Egypt’s grandeur and mystery has drawn in visitors for thousands of years. While you might expect to find towering pyramids, you’ll discover so much more among the sands of the Sahara Desert. No trip to Egypt is complete without visiting the Cradle of Civilization: Ancient Egypt. Take the images you’ve seen of the pyramids and turn them into something tangible. The Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx are just two of the most recognizable structures from this incredible time found here. Immerse yourself further into Ancient Egypt with a trip down the Nile on a river cruise. Short and long cruises are both offered down the Nile, which is surrounded by the lush valley created by the great river. On your journey, you’ll see the Egyptian farmland and animal-inhabitants as you sail peacefully along. You’ll be thrust into modern Egypt as you arrive in the major city of Cairo. With skyscrapers and highways existing alongside ancient monuments, your trip to Egypt will certainly broaden your horizons.
