Along the Nile River's fertile plains, the earliest human civilization gave rise to one of the most intriguing cultures - the ancient Egypt. Since then, the Nile River and the Egyptian pyramids have always captivated our imagination like no other image. With the Pyramids and the Nile Tour, you'll embark on the voyage of a lifetime, exploring the ancient Egypt and sailing the Nile, one of the Earth's most revered rivers. You'll be rewarded with an unforgettable journey which makes the history come alive, as you discover the magnificent temples at Karnak and Luxor, the extraordinary painted tombs in the Valley of the Kings, the surreal Abu Simbel, and the Great Pyramids. You'll study the mysterious realm of the pharaohs, visit their colossal monuments and elaborate tombs. You'll learn about the pantheon of Egyptian gods, ponder the beauty of hieroglyphics, see the wonders of modern engineering in Aswan and participate in engaging discussions on modern Egypt. You'll also explore the vibrant Cairo and the ancient Alexandria and gain insight into a culture and religion that are integral to today's geopolitical issues. You'll see magical places full of architectural gems and important museum collections, and learn about life along the Nile as you cruise aboard a luxury riverboat.

The entire Egypt tour was fabulous. A trip of a lifetime. I like traveling in an all women group. Having most of the tour/meals set up for us is great. S and S sets up really nice accommodations for us. - Orma from Pennsylvania

This tour (Egypt) was fantastic. Seeing the pyramids in Giza was a life long dream. I really enjoy traveling with S&S. They provide great accommodations and knowledgeable tour leaders. Having transportation to your hotel upon arrival and transportation to the airport for your trip home greatly reduces the travel stress. Keep up the good work! Your company has great communication to the travelers prior to the trip. - Andrea from New Jersey

Great tour – great women – great Egypt specialist – loved Marta! - Kim from Virginia

This was a most fascinating and educational trip: I greatly appreciated the knowledge of our local guides. There is nothing like actually standing next to the pyramids and the Sphinx, going down into the beautifully decorated tombs and walking through the amazing temples of Egypt and Jordan! The tour leader, Marta, was always availableif/when needed. She was calm and through and extremely even-handed in dealing with all in the group. She was organized and collaborated well with the local guides. - Deborah from Florida

It was my first time with you & I absolutely will do it again. Everything was arranged for me, so all I had to do was enjoy! - Sally from Ohio

I am so very pleased to have experienced traveling with Sights + Soul – very well organized + all accommodations were great. - Rhea from Arizona

Simply put, I loved the Egypt trip. I felt safe and well taken care of, and I would highly recommend it. - Char from Nevada

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken! Having an Egyptologist with us an the entire tour was wonderful. He was able to build on the history as we went. - Susan from Arizona

Egypt was magical, and it was the smoothest, best run tour I have ever taken. - Wendy from Maryland

The Egypt trip was so much more than I even expected or hoped it would be. The connectivity between the tour leader and the Egyptologist guide made the tour a pleasure – all the logistics came off seamlessly. - Maria from Illinois

My decision to go on this tour was one of my best decisions of the last five years. I have traveled extensively, but the ancient treasures of Egypt leave one unable to speak, and then reconsider the history of civilization. - Alice from Georgia

Once again, you thought of everything. Thank you for making my 10th trip with S+S so memorable. - Andrea from Nevada

I had a great trip and it was REALLY hard to go back to work. The trip was everything I wanted it to be - a real escape, lots of variety, land and water, some good conversations, Judaic sites, immersion in a foreign culture, and a chance for me to spread my wings a bit and remember that, when I'm not working all the time, I can have a good time. - Robin from Pennsylvania
