This itinerary took me on a journey through the wonders of Egypt that I'll cherish forever. Exploring the Pyramids of Giza left me in awe of human ingenuity, while sailing on a felucca along the Nile felt like a dream. Luxor's Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple truly changed my mind about what is ancient. I had a lot of time to think and relax as well, often in beautiful surroundings. Must come back!

From the moment we arrived in Cairo, we knew this itinerary was going to be extraordinary. Cairo was mesmerizing. Never saw a city like it. Aswan's Nubian Bazaar was a vibrant experience and contributed to a heavier suitcase heading back home. The felucca sail along the Nile was something else. Also, Luxor's Valley of the Kings nothing less than marvelous. This itinerary is what the doctor prescribed for those who yearn for culture and history.
