Dear Travelers:
Join us!... as we discover the extraordinary antiquities and colossal monuments of Egypt.

It is a great time to go to Egypt as the world reawakens after the COVID-19 crisis. Egypt is simply not to be missed.

This program will include exciting recent discoveries in Egypt in addition to the wonders of the pyramids and astronomy in ancient Egypt. Visits will include the fabulous new Alexandria Library (once the site of the greatest library in antiquity) and the new Alexandria National Museum which includes artifacts from Cleopatra’s Palace beneath the waters of Alexandria Harbor.

The expedition offers an excellent introduction to astronomy and life of ancient Egypt and to the ultimate monuments of the Old Kingdom, the Great Pyramids and Sphinx!

Discover the great stone ramparts of the Temple of Ramses II at Abu Simbel, built during the New Kingdom, on the Abu Simbel extension.

The trip will be led by an excellent Egyptologist guide, Amr Salem, and an Egyptologist scholar, Dr. Bojana Mojsov.

Join us!... for a treasured holiday in Egypt!
