Egypt & the Eternal Nile | November 29 - December 13, 2024

Travel with alumni and friends from November 29 - December 13, 2024 on a fifteen-day journey through Egypt. Led by an expert Egyptian guide, explore thousands of years of history on a unique and exciting year-end adventure.


Begin in Egypt’s capital, and largest city, Cairo, with its renowned ancient sites: the Sphinx, Sakkara, and the Pyramids of Giza. Relax during a four-night cruise on Lake Nasser, then enjoy a classic Nile voyage that includes visits to Edfu’s Temple of Horus and Luxor’s acclaimed temple and tombs. Here, visit Karnak, arguably the greatest temple complex of them all, then explore the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. Conclude your tour back in Cairo with a visit to the lively Khan el-Khalili bazaar and the famed Egyptian Museum, followed by an exploration of Old Cairo. A special opportunity to discover the treasures of Jordan is available with an optional 5-day/4-night “Jordan: Petra & Amman” post-tour extension.

Space will be limited to just 24 participants and is open to all Columbia alumni, friends and their accompanying guests. Please contact the CAA Travel Study Program office at (866) 325-8664 or at [email protected] for more details or request a reservation today!
