National Geographic Exclusive Departures

Trace the history of one of the world’s most ancient and greatest civilizations, from the oldest standing pyramid, to the grand tombs and temples of Luxor, and the Coptic churches, Islamic mosques, and bustling souks of Cairo. Stand in the shadows of the great Pyramids at Giza and gaze into the eyes of the Great Sphinx; then puzzle over colorful hieroglyphs in the Valley of the Kings. Travel in the style of the ancient pharaohs along the storied Nile River—the lifeblood of Egypt—and soak in the riverbank scenery of lively villages, lush date palms, and striking remnants of Egypt’s multilayered history.
