One of my bucket list items is a visit to the Biblical Holy Land so when I was sent details of this tour I had to share it in case there's anyone else out there who would love this discounted Emerald Waterways trip which also incorporates highlights of ancient Egypt. And maybe take me along.
So much can be learned about this region from history books, but with this tour you can delve deeper and witness spectacular desert landscapes and thousands of years of history as you follow in the footsteps of the mighty Pharaohs as well as a visit to the biblical holy land.
During this 16-day river cruise and land tour from Tel Aviv to Cairo, highlights include a tour of the Knights’ Halls, the Crusaders’ main fortress; the Garden of Gethsemane; access to the open-air temple complex of Karnak with ancient hieroglyphs as well as the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut in Luxor, a woman whose reign is a storied part of Egyptian history
