Egypt

Man fears Time, yet Time fears the Pyramids (Arab Proverb)

Egypt - one of life's great destinations ...

The sheer scale, age and volume of the ancient ruins and tombs found along the entire course of the Nile, is extraordinary by any standard. Magnificent temples, superb sculptures and intricately decorated ancient tombs are only some of the delights of this wonderful land.

Add to these bustling towns, diverse peoples, stunning desert landscapes, extraordinary bazaars, the World’s longest river, and of course, the Pyramids of Giza. Include in this mix the enormous and ancient city of Cairo, and you have one of the most exciting places to visit on Earth.

Our program in Egypt provides plenty of opportunity for you to add days at either end, and allows time for calm thought and personal contemplation of the mysteries of life, which a journey to Egypt seems to inspire.
