As our invitations to travel with Ryan and Malaka on their escorted departures are limited and in high demand, we kindly request that only serious inquiries are made. Due to the fact that our departures are announced well over a year in advance in order to assist with our guest’s extended travel plans, they tend to sell out very quickly. We recognize plans can change and are always hopeful to be able to re-sell your space if we are in a sold out scenario, however, in the event we are unable to re-sell your space, we will charge a cancel fee equal to 10% of the cost of the trip.

Points of Interest


Queen Nefertari's Tomb

Long praised as the most beautifullydecorated of all the tombs on the West Bank of Luxor, this masterpiece of Egyptian art was restored by the Egyptian Antiquities Authority and the Getty Conservation institute in the USA. Specialists worked for 6 years to clean the paintings and re-affix them to the plaster walls from where they had been flaking, and today it is hardly conceivable that such vibrant colors have actually not been retouched since they were first laid thousands of years ago. 
A Simbel Ramses

Temples of Abu Simbel

Built by the Great Ramses II, Egypt’s longest ruling pharaoh, Abu Simbel is one of the most recognizable images in the country. Actually two temples, namely the Great Temple of Ra-Harakhte, fronted by the four colossal statues of Ramses II and the Temple of Hathor, dedicated to Ramses’ favorite wife Queen Nefertari.
Luxor Temple_Lights_Dan Ryan 2013

Temples of Karnak & Luxor

The Temple of Karnak was built over more than a thousand years by generations of Pharaohs. The great “Hypostyle Hall” is an incredible forest of giant pillars, covering an area larger than the whole of Notre Dame Cathedral. Proceed with your Egyptologist guide on a tour of the strikingly graceful Temple of Luxor dedicated to the god Amun.

The Sphinx

Visit the Valley Temple, housing the mysterious Sphinx, located in what was once a quarry to the east of Chephren’s pyramid. One theory suggests this Pharaoh’s workers shaped the body into a lion and gave it their king’s face, as a guardian of the necropolis.
