Time and Space in the Temples and Pyramids
Egypt Tour with Ruth Shilling
Sunday, February 17 – Saturday, March 2, 2019
= SOLD OUT =
Join our small group (limited to 12 travelers) for an unforgettable all-inclusive 2-week 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.
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 7 guest cabins, a full crew, specially prepared meals, and all the amenities, including wifi. We will have 7 nights on the dahabeya.
