Travel with our Canadian & Egyptian Egyptologists

Nov 21 - Dec 3, 2017 & Oct 31 - Nov 12, 2018

Trace the footsteps of the great explorers, kings and conquerors of the past as you discover Egypt's wonders, ancient and modern. With the inspiring insight of Laura, your Canadian Egyptologist guide - and Ramy, your local Egyptologist guide - the storied past of the Pharaohs will come alive.

Climb into pyramids, immerse yourself in the colourful souks and village life, sail the Nile like Cleopatra, ride a camel - and be transformed in this exciting and exotic two week small-group cultural adventure featuring all the highlights (and hidden treasures) of Egypt.
