Behold the mysteries of ancient Pharaohs on an adventure to the heart of Egypt along the Nile. Present and past unite as towering monuments, majestic statues and colorful art depicting life that existed centuries ago are part of the everyday landscape. Experience the romance of desert sands and brilliant sunsets while unlocking the secrets of ancient rulers, crocodile and falcon gods, and the huge paws of the Sphinx. Cruise the Nile River viewing lush vegetation and desert dunes, and complete the adventure in Alexandria on the Mediterranean, the last seat of the Pharaohs before Roman occupation, with lasting vestiges of Greek and Jewish contributions. Indiana Jones should have been so lucky!

There are basically two seasons in Egypt: a relatively cool season that lasts November-March (by far the better touring season) and a hot season April-October. The Red Sea coast has fewer extremes and is nice year-round. In the spring (especially late March to early April), sand and dust storms called khamsin blow in and can reduce visibility (sometimes even in Cairo) to less than 100 feet.
