Summary

The archaeology of ancient Egypt is one of the most instantly recognisable of all the great civilisations. This is a narrative of power, vision and ambition. The monuments of Egypt are much more than dry and dusty stones – through the real expertise of our Guide Lecturers, we ‘meet’ the real ancient Egyptians: from legendary pharaohs to the humble workers, who built their tombs and palaces.

Our adventure starts in Cairo then on to Luxor, followed by a Nile cruise to Aswan. The grand finale of this journey will be our visit to Egypt’s most impressive temple site, Abu Simbel.
