Egypt Tours
Great Pyramids of Giza

Welcome to Egypt

One of the most fascinating countries on Earth, Egypt is a vast, living archaeological site whose world-renowned antiquities tell this ancient civilization's compelling story, which has unfolded over some 5,000 years... explore Egypt's historic and cultural treasures – many of which are tucked away in remote desert locations, and have attracted travelers for centuries – firsthand, on unforgettable journeys including cruises on the Egyptian nation's lifeblood, the timeless Nile River. 

The Pyramids of Giza

Wonders of the Ancient World... Giza's Pyramids & Sphinx

The only largely intact survivor of the “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World,” the Great Pyramid of Giza (a.k.a. the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is one of the most recognizable landmarks on Earth… and reigned as the world’s tallest man-made structure for nearly 4,000 years! Completed sometime around 2500 BC, it’s the oldest and largest of the complex known as the Great Pyramids of Giza, which also includes the Pyramids of Khafre (Chephren) and Menkaure (Mykerinos), as well as the Great Sphinx, from about the same period as the Great Pyramid. Who built the Sphinx and why is still a mystery that’s lasted more than 3,000 years… as you’ll learn on your visit to this remarkable site.

The Valley of the Kings

Discovering Egypt's Valley of the Kings

Nestled in Egypt’s Theban hills west of the Nile River, near today’s Luxor, stands the Valley of the Kings – where, between the 16th and 11th centuries BC, complexes of tombs were cut out of the rock to house the remains of the Pharaohs and other nobles of Egypt’s New Kingdom, and prepare them for the afterlife. This UNESCO World Heritage Site contains more than 60 identified tombs and chambers. While many were once filled with treasures, most have been plundered through the ages… with the exception of that of the famous tomb of Tutankhamun, discovered intact in the 1920s, whose artifacts and remains have been removed and preserved. Visiting any of these tombs today is an experience not to be missed.
