Go beyond the Giza Pyramids with us... Discover the fascinating tombs, temples and rare antiquities of Egypt - including the wonders of Amarna
New roads, site openings and restorations mean that there's never been a better time to visit Egypt and explore its off-the-beaten track spectacles. This special Egyptologist-led itinerary will take you from the excitement of Cairo, Giza and ancient Sakkara, down on the safe new route through the middle of the country - a fascinating drive experienced by few - to explore the unspoiled towns, desert terrain and astounding antiquities of middle Egypt. The tour's centrepiece is a full day insider's view of Amarna, Akhenaten's lost 18th dynasty kingdom, guided by renowned Amarna archaeologist, Prof. Barry Kemp. In fact, part of your tour price will go to fund his important work through the Amarna project. And we shall do it all in style. This deluxe itinerary features exclusive encounters with ancient history by day, and luxurious accommodations by night.
