The modern metropolis of Cairo pulses with activity, yet the past is so close by. The great Pyramids of Giza and Memphis are all within easy reach. Inside the city the world-renowned Egyptian Museum allows a glimpse of the rich heritage of this land. Whether exploring the ancient or living the present, Cairo will leave you with an impression of excitement & awe.

Cairo is Egypt’s capital city, and with over 16 million inhabitants, it ranks as one of the largest cities in Africa.  This city of contradictions will enthrall you with its ageless charm.  The ancient and the modern co-exist in surprising harmony, and the hospitality and friendliness of its people will set you at ease.  Historic Cairo includes the wonders of the pharoahs, as well as a religious heritage embodied in the numerous jewish, coptic and islamic monuments that abound.



The southeastern city of Luxor is home to some of the most remarkable ancient monuments in all of Egypt. The vast Karnak Temple Complex, ancient religious and educational center, is one of the most spectacular examples. There is also the Valley of Kings, where the famous tomb of King Tutankhamun was found, and the Valley of Queens, final resting place of Queen Nefertari. In addition to the splendor of its museums and ancient temples, Luxor is also the perfect location to embark on a Nile Cruise.



The southern city of Aswan is one of Egypt’s most important attractions. It is one of the sunniest cities in the country, small enough to walk through and enjoys an ideal location on the bank of the beautiful Nile River. Close at hand is Elephantine Island with its pre-dynastic ruins, and Kitchener’s Island, home to a lush tropical garden full of exotic plants and flowers. Aswan is the perfect spot to embark on a Nile cruise or simply enjoy the river views from the comfort of your hotel.



Petra (from the Greek, meaning 'rock') lies in a great rift valley east of Wadi 'Araba in Jordan about 80 kilometers south of the Dead Sea. It came into prominence in the late first century BCE (BC) through the success of the spice trade. The city was the principal city of ancient Nabataea and was famous above all for two things: its trade and its hydraulic engineering systems. It was locally autonomous until the reign of Trajan, but it flourished under Roman rule. The town grew up around its Colonnaded Street in the first century CE (AD) and by the mid-first century had witnessed rapid urbanization. Following the flow of the Wadi Musa, the city-center was laid out on either sides of the Colonnaded Street on an elongated plan between the theater in the east and the Qasr al-Bint in the west. The quarries were probably opened in this period, and there followed virtually continuous building through the first and second centuries CE.

According to tradition, in ca. 1200 BCE, the Petra area (but not necessarily the site itself) was populated by Edomites and the area was known as Edom ("red"). Before the Israelite incursions, the Edomites controlled the trade routes from Arabia in the south to Damascus in the north. Little is known about the Edomites at Petra itself, but as a people they were known for their wisdom, their writing, their textile industry, the excellence and fineness of their ceramics, and their skilled metal working.

The next chapter of history belongs to the Persian period, and it is posited that during this time the Nabataeans migrated into Edom, forcing the Edomites to move into southern Palestine. But little is known about Petra proper until about 312 BC by which time the Nabataeans, one of many Arab tribes, occupied it and made it the capital of their kingdom. At this time, during the Hellenistic rule of the Seleucids, and later, the Ptolemies, the whole area flourished with increased trade and the establishment of new towns such as Philadelphia (Rabbath 'Ammon, modern Amman) and Gerasa (modern Jerash). Infighting between the Seleucids and Ptolemies allowed the Nabataeans to gain control over the caravan routes between Arabia and Syria. Although there were struggles between the Jewish Maccabeans and the Seleucid overlords, Nabataean trade continued.

With Nabataean rule, Petra became the center for a spice trade that extended from Arabia to Aqaba and Petra, and onward either to Gaza in the northwest, or to the north through Amman to Bostra, Damascus, and finally on to Palmyra and the Syrian Desert. Nabataean Classical monuments reflect the international character of the Nabataean economy through their combination of native tradition and the classical spirit.

But among the most remarkable of all Nabataean achievements is the hydraulic engineering systems they developed including water conservation systems and the dams that were constructed to divert the rush of swollen winter waters that create flash floods.
