Avalon Waterways will return to Egypt next year with a
10-day itinerary that includes the highlights of Cairo and a luxury cruise
along the Nile on the 120-passenger Farah.
"We are thrilled to
return to Egypt and the Nile River with this once-in-a-lifetime vacation," Avalon
managing director Pam Hoffee said in a statement.
Avalon last offered Egypt itineraries in 2016.
With prices starting at $3,281, the Taste of Egypt itinerary
visits the Pyramids and Sphinx in Giza; the Ramses II and Alabaster Sphinx in
Memphis as well as Cairo’s oldest church -- the Hanging Church -- and
Tutankhamun’s Tomb in the Egyptian Museum.
Along the Nile, travelers will visit the Luxor Temple;
Avenue of Sphinxes; the massive Karnak Temple Complex, including the Temple of
Amun-Ra; the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens; the Temple of Kom
Ombo (an unusual double temple); and the Temple of Isis.
