Highlights

Luxor


Luxor is often called the world’s greatest open-air museum, but that comes nowhere near describing this extraordinary place. Enjoy a 2-day/1-night complimentary trip to Luxor, a magnificent Ancient City. Optional excursions in Luxor include a discovery of the Valley of the Kings, the Hatschepsut Temple, dedicated to the only ever female Pharaoh and the Colossi of Memnon.

St. Catherine's Monastery


Visit St. Catherine's Monastery, the remarkable Orthodox Christian monastery that is believed to be in use since the year 381. The monastery has a large collection of codices, old bibles which make it the second most important collection in the world, only surpassed by the Vatican archives.

Cairo


Giza is most famous as the location of the Giza Plateau: the site of some of the most impressive ancient monuments in the world, including a complex of ancient Egyptian royal mortuary and sacred structures, the Great Sphinx, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and a number of other large pyramids and temples.
