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.

Wadi Rum


The dessert of Wādī Ramm, known also as "Valley of the Moon", is the largest desert valley (wadi) in Jordan. This cut into the sandstone and granite rock desert valley has been used as a background setting of extra-terrace planets surface in numerous science-fiction films and since 2005 has become one of UNESCO's protected World Heritage Sites.

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.
