The luxury and romance of a bygone era

Andante’s ‘Golden Age’ tours evoke the glamour and romance of exotic travel in the 1920s and 1930s with stays in historic 5-star grande dame hotels, superb food and drink, and classic tour experiences, all in the company of an expert Guide Lecturer. This superb Egypt itinerary takes in all the unmissable highlights in peerless style. You’ll luxuriate in the surroundings of the iconic Mena House, Old Winter Palace and Old Cataract hotels and a fine Nile cruise vessel, celebrate the centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb and the opening of the brand new Grand Egyptian Museum, and marvel at breath-taking monuments such as the Pyramids of Giza and the temples of Karnak and Abu Simbel, which attest to the glory of an extraordinary ancient civilisation.

Tour highlights:

  • In the centenary year of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, visit the tomb itself along with Howard Carter’s house in Luxor, and marvel at the glittering funerary treasure that forms the centrepiece of the new Grand Egyptian Museum
  • Follow in the footsteps of writers, travellers, film stars and royalty with stays in iconic grande dame hotels which retain their 1920s and 1930s glamour, and appreciate the romance of a classic Nile cruise
  • An air excursion to the extraordinary rock-cut temples of Abu Simbel, painstakingly relocated stone-by-stone in the 1960s to avoid being submerged by the waters of Lake Nasser
