Travel back in time on a New Year's journey by private plane and riverboat, as you explore the timeless treasures of Ancient Egypt. On an extraordinary journey that includes a four-night Nile River cruise, celebrate the New Year while you marvel at unparalleled ancient history. In Giza, tour the Great Pyramids; get an exclusive, up-close look at the Great Sphinx; and be among the first to visit the Grand Egyptian Museum, scheduled to open in late 2022, and the new National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, permanent home of the royal mummy collection. Ring in 2023 at dinner and evening festivities with fellow travelers. After a privately chartered flight to Luxor for an overnight stay, explore the vast necropolis of Ancient Thebes. Board the luxury riverboat Sanctuary Nile Adventurer, following in the wake of ancient pharaohs. Along the way, step ashore to tour the Temple of Horus at Edfu, meet the crocodile god Sobek at Kom Ombo, and sail to the Temple of Philae near Aswan. Disembark and fly to Abu Simbel, where you will view the awe-inspiring statues of Ramses II and Nefertari, each over six stories tall. Conclude with a return to Cairo. An optional postlude in Jordan is offered.
