Adventures by Disney released its lineup of 2020 itineraries, and it includes a new three-part tour of Egypt.
The 10-day, nine-night vacation will “immerse travelers in both ancient and modern Egypt.” It kicks off in Cairo, before heading out on a three-night cruise along the Nile River, with premium accommodations and themed entertainment. It is followed by a two-night stay at a beachside resort in Sharm El Sheikh, including a full-day snorkeling excursion on a private boat to visit the famous coral reefs of the Red Sea.
Guests will see the wonders of ancient Egypt, from the world-famous pyramids and the Sphinx of Giza to the Valley of the Kings and Tutankhamun's tomb; and the temples of Luxor, Kom Ombo, Horus at Edfu, Philae, and Karnak. They will also partake in a chef-led cooking class on Egyptian specialties; a Nubian folkloric show and henna tattoo experience; and a hieroglyphic writing lesson.
Adventures by Disney will offer 11 Egypt departures in 2020. Five of these are reserved for adult-only departures, which include an exclusive VIP tour of the conservation rooms at the brand new Grand Egyptian Museum.
