Treasures of Egypt: December 2019

Indagare’s Treasures of Egypt itinerary focuses on once-in-a-lifetime experiences of the some of the most incredible and famous monuments of human civilization. In addition to enjoying exclusive access to such monuments as the Pyramids of Giza (one of the Seven Wonders of the World), the Khan El-Khalili bazaar, the Sphinx, King Tut’s Tomb, Philae and the Temple of Edfu, you will also voyage down the Nile River on a luxury yacht and immerse yourself in the culture of modern Egypt with visits in Cairo.


What to Expect

With one third of all of the world’s antiquities and the only remaining monument of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Egypt is a superlative destination: astounding, colossal, epic. For thousands of years, travelers journeyed from all over the world to witness the glorious temples built by the pharaohs. Today, Egypt is stable, safe and on the brink of a massive influx of visitors. Now is the time to see it for yourself.

On this journey, travelers can immerse themselves in the legendary sites of ancient Egypt from the exclusive vantage point of the Nile River, aboard Oberoi’s luxurious river cruiser, the Philae. Traveling by water allows you to easily move from Luxor to Edfu and Aswan (avoiding hours of driving), while private, expert-guided tours at such iconic sites as Philae and the Valley of the Kings bring history to life. You will also have the chance to add on further exploration in Cairo, where you can enjoy exciting cultural experiences and private touring at the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, the Khan El-Khalili bazaar and the Egyptian Museum.

Inspired by our sold-out Egypt 2018 Insider Journey, this packaged itinerary combines the best of Indagare’s destination expertise, insider intel and special access to offer travelers an effortless and rewarding way to explore the world. It includes set dates, hotels and activities—so you don’t have to worry about planning—but allows for flexibility, customization and free time to explore on your own. In addition to the Main Trip down the Nile river on the Oberoi Philae, which runs from December 31, 2019 to January 4, 2020 (4 nights), travelers can also add on our Pre-Trip Package to Cairo for touring at the Great Pyramids and more, with accommodations at the Four Seasons Cairo at Nile Plaza, which runs from December 28 to December 31, 2019 (3 nights).
