About This Trip
On this adventure, you’ll get on your hands and knees as you climb through the cavernous mazes inside the Great Pyramid to reach the pharaoh's tomb. You’ll ride a camel on the Giza plateau and a donkey past the step pyramid. As if that’s not already cool enough, you’ll board a 5-star cruise that will take you from temple to temple down the Nile River as your local guide, an egyptologist, explains what the hieroglyphs and carvings mean. You’ll fly over the Valley of the Kings in a hot air balloon, and when you come back down to earth you’ll actually go inside the colorful tombs of King Tut and Ramses IV.
Then we’ll take you to the Red Sea where you’ll see some of the most exotic fish in the world as you snorkel, scuba dive, and swim with dolphins. To top it off, in classic Travel Young fashion, we will grab a dune buggy and head out to an oasis in the Sahara desert to camp under the brightest stars you’ll find in the world. You’re gonna leave Egypt in a permanent state of adrenaline, mystery, and awe.
