Experiences of a lifetime

Explore biblical lands untouched by time from atop Mt. Nebo, at sandstone Petra, and in ancient Roman cities surrounding Jordan's Dead Sea shores. Sail down the River Nile on a journey that spans 5,000 years of history in the world's oldest civilization. Visit pyramids, temples and tombs that speak volumes about the lives of Egyptian kings and queens, traveling by felucca, camel and small boat to places immortal and intriguing. And indulge in modern-day luxuries, enriched by the past, at premier hotels and resorts with views of the iconic sites you've dreamed of seeing.

Explore the awe-inspiring wonders of ancient Jordan and Egypt on this 13-day journey from the Dead Sea to Cairo, including a 3-night cruise on the Nile from Aswan to Luxor aboard a luxury riverboat. Begin in Amman, Jordan, with a visit to the Dead Sea, a popular vacation spot for its spas and historical sites... in Madaba visit St. George Church, famous for its Byzantine art and 6th-century mosaic map... re-discover the "lost" city of Petra, carved out of pink sandstone in a mountain pass at Wadi Musa... Board your luxury riverboat at Aswan for a Nile River odyssey to ancient Egyptian sites, including Abu Simbel, the grand temple built by Ramses II, with towering statues of himself... the Philae Temples, a breathtaking complex of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman temples and monumental statues on Agilika Island... the House of the Crocodile and the Castle of the Falcon at Kom Ombo... the dazzling tomb of Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens... the vast necropolis at the Valley of Kings and the tomb of Tutankammen... and the Avenue of Sphinxes at Luxor. Along the way, shore excursions include jeep safaris, camel rides, a visit to a Bedouin camp, dining at local restaurants, and an Arabic cooking lesson in Amman. Stay three nights at the exclusive Mena House in Giza, your base for exploring the Khufu Pyramid and the Great Sphinx with an expert Egyptologist, as well as treasures of Cairo, including the Hanging Church, the Al Rifai Mosque, the Khan El-Khalili Market, and the new Grand Egyptian Museum.

Visiting "The Breakers"

Day 7

Explore one of Newport's grandest "cottages," The Breakers

Newport, Rhode Island is home to the opulent summer retreats constructed during the Gilded Age (1878-1889) by super-wealthy businessmen with names like Schermerhorn, Wetmore, Belmont, Astor and Vanderbilt. With the vast fortunes they amassed during this period of booming industry, these "tycoons" built "cottages" called The Elms, Kingscote, Chepstow and m. But perhaps the grandest of them all was – and still is – one that you'll visit: The Breakers, a 70-room Renaissance-style palazzo inspired by the 16th-century palaces of Genoa and Turin, completed in 1895 as a summer home for Cornelius Vanderbilt II, son of "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt of the New York Central Railroad. It has to be seen to be believed!

A New England lobster dinner

Day 4

Dig into a traditional New England lobster dinner on Cape Cod

In the Boston and Cape Cod area, local accents make words ending in "r" sound more like "ahh," turning words like "lobster" into "lobstahh"... which is a particularly apt pronunciation for a delicious regional specialty that is plucked directly from the cold waters off the New England coast and perfectly prepared at traditional clambakes... or at the traditional New England "lobstahh" feast you'll enjoy during your stay on Cape Cod.

Farewell dinner on Narragansett Bay

Days 6 and 7

Newport, Rhode Island

Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island forms the largest estuary in New England, an expansive natural harbor that opens to the Atlantic Ocean – and Newport, Rhode Island, sits at the southern end of the largest of the Bay's 30 islands, Aquidneck, facing the Atlantic. After a day of historic sightseeing, we invite you to join us for an exclusive farewell reception and dinner at the city's newest luxury waterfront venue, overlooking the harbor.

Lucky us! In 2012 we saw the Egyptian treasures during a period when tourism was very light, but safe. Our guide protected us from the desperate sellers of souvenirs and everything was beautiful for this brief hiatus. The pyramids, Abu Simbel, Karnak, Valley of the Kings and other temples are awesome. This was once such a glorious and rich empire!

Most Memorable Moment:

Abu Simbel was most impressive because there was no suburban sprawl encroaching on it in the same way that the Sphinx and pyramids are being covered up by civilization. The local folks are starving in Egypt so theft of artifacts is inevitable--leaving less and less for tourists to admire. See the sights sooner rather than later.
