Egypt

Egypt—it’s the birthplace of civilization, and home to the pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, and the great temples of Luxor.

While traveling here is high on any traveler’s bucket list, traveling through Egypt as a solo female traveler can be intimidating. So we decided to team up with a local to help craft an itinerary through Ancient Egypt guaranteed to delight, and keep you feeling comfortable.

Leave the logistics to us, bring your camera and your sense of adventure on this women’s-only tour.

This Ancient Egypt adventure takes you from Cairo to Aswan, on a Nile River cruise to the ancient temples of Luxor, and back to Cairo in a 10-day tour you’ll be talking about for years to come.

Day 2: Saqarra & Dashur

Today is all about ancient history—and pyramids! We’re taking you today to regions that not many travelers get a chance to see, including the ancient burial grounds of Saqarra and the Red, Black, and Bent Pyramids of Dahshur.

The pyramids of Dahshur are said to be where the Egyptians perfected pyramid-building technology. The Red Pyramid is also one of the few pyramids you can walk into freely.

After sightseeing, we’ll have lunch together as a group.

Later this afternoon, we’ll head to Giza, where we’ll see the Pyramids of Giza, and of course, the Sphinx.

Afterwards, you’ll have some time to relax, before we take a night cruise down the Nile and then have dinner.
