Egypt Tours with Ruth Shilling & All One World
Our next tours are
Sunday, November 13 – Monday, November 28, 2022 = SOLD OUT =
NOTE: The Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) is hoping to open on November 4, 2022.
If it has not opened at the time of these tours, we will visit other museums in Cairo on that day.
Join our small group (limited to 18 travelers) for an unforgettable 16-day tour of the Ancient Egyptian treasures. Unlike the other tours which hurry through the sacred sites, we will do our visits in a slower, more peaceful way. There is time to marvel, photograph, and let it all sink in.
Part of WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT.
Extras included in our tours :
• Private 2-hour visit with just our group inside the Great Pyramid of Giza and a full day on the Giza Plateau
• A full-day visit to the new Grand Egyptian Museum (if open), otherwise we will visit other Cairo museums
• New sites at Saqqara – go INSIDE the Step Pyramid, the newly opened Southern Tomb, the Serapeum, and more!

• Abydos, Dendera, Silsila, Esna, Abu Simbel, Ramesseum, Medinet Habu Temple, Luxor Museum, Imhotep Museum (and, of course, the typical sites.
• Our own private dahabeya Nile sailboat enables us to visit sites which 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 dahabeya (also spelled “dahabiya”) is a large sailboat with 14 guest cabins, a full crew, specially prepared meals, and all the amenities, including wifi. We will have 5 nights on the dahabeya. Day-by-Day Itinerary.
