Legends of the Nile

Behold ancient pyramids alongside an expert Egyptologist

Discover ancient Egypt with your host, Grammy-award-winning opera singer Sylvia McNair. In addition, on every major excursion, you will be accompanied by an expert, licensed Egyptologist.

This thrilling 10-night adventure starts in Cairo. Seek out handmade treasures in the old bazaar—Khan el-Khalili—and visit the pyramids at Giza, situated near the Great Sphinx.

Next up: Luxor. Here, learn how ancient treasures are restored and preserved, and drift along the Nile aboard a felucca boat. About an hour from the city is the Valley of the Kings—home to 62 tombs carved from rock, including King Tut’s. End your day with an authentic belly-dancing performance.

Leaving Luxor behind, embark on a four-night Nile cruise. Highlights of this voyage include the extensive Karnak Temple Complex and the massive Abu Simbel temples.
