Join our small groups (limited to 10 travelers) for unforgettable tours of the Ancient Egyptian treasures. Unlike the other tours which hurry through the crowded sacred sites, we will do our visits in a slower, more peaceful way and avoid the crowds. There is time to marvel, photograph, and let it all sink in.

Part of WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT.
Extras included in our “Time & Space in the Temples & Pyramids” Tour
 :

• SMALL GROUP: Limited to 10 Travelers (however, Private Tailor-made Tours can be 6-50 persons)
• Fully escorted by American Tour Leader/Guide, Ruth Shilling

• Our own private dahabiya Nile cruise boat enables us to visit sites that are not accessible to the large cruise boats. We move at our own pace and truly relish the peacefulness and beauty of this renowned river. A dahabiya (also spelled “dahabeya”) is a large sailboat with 10 guest cabins, a full crew, specially prepared meals, and all the amenities, including wifi. We will have 4 nights on the dahabiya.  Day-by-Day Itineraries.
