Splendors of Egypt with Colleen Alsberg - SOLD OUT

October 8 – October 20, 2024 | 13 Days

Cruise the Nile River and See the Pyramids on a Guided Tour of Egypt

Join Colleen Alsberg on her third trip to fascinating Egypt! The Great Pyramids of Giza and ancient temples, tombs and treasures that line the vast River Nile have been attracting visitors to Egypt for over 4,000 years. Although the pyramids have come to symbolize this exotic destination, they are just a small portion of what this timeless land has to offer. Egypt’s vast wealth of antiquities take center stage. Marvel at Karnak, the Pyramids and Sphinx, Tutankhamun’s treasure, and the ubiquitous hieroglyphics. The stories told and the memories made will last a lifetime!

Tour Highlights

Giza: Meet the enigmatic Sphinx and venture deep inside one of the pyramids to the chamber where the pharaohs went to meet their Gods in the afterlife

Cairo: Gaze upon the most recognizable symbols of ancient Egypt: the full-faced funeral mask, gold coffin, gilded throne and precious jewelry of Tutankhamun’s treasures

Philae Island: Board a motorboat to the temple complex and see the Temple of Isis

Aswan: On a traditional Nile felucca, meet a sailor and learn the art of sailing this ancient Nile craft. Enjoy the sunset and high tea in colonial English-style at Aswan’s famous Old Cataract Hotel.

West Bank: Embark with your Egyptologist to visit the Temple Hatshepsut and royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings

Karnak: Stand amid a vast forest of columns in the largest temple complex known to man

Cruising: Join the fun at an Egyptian dinner and galabeya party

Meet Your Host and Tour Manager: Colleen Alsberg

Colleen hosted our Egypt Splendours tour in 2022 and the trip was nothing short of amazing!  Upon returning, travelers were expressing their gratitude for the well thought out and immersive guided tour.  We couldn’t wait to offer this trip again in 2024 based off the high level of interest!

Here is what Colleen had to share upon returning: 

“There are not enough adjectives to describe what an amazing adventure we shared in Egypt! Our travel director Hazem took us on a magical journey through the history, culture and beauty of his country. Our group was all in, experiencing every minute, sometimes outside of their comfort zone, to see and do the unimaginable. Crawling into a pyramid tomb, camel rides, hot air balloons and dancing the night away in a full galabia! Egypt was extraordinary!”
