~ EGYPT ~
November 30 - December 15, 2021 - 16 days
Known as the Land of the Pharaohs, Egypt has always been a fascinating and mysterious place.
It conjures up images of the Great Pyramids, temples and tombs in the Valley of the Kings,
but it also has a vibrant and ever-changing present.
Sailing up the Nile on a Dahabeya
The 19th-century novelist Amelia Edwards likened traveling by sailing boat or steamer to the difference between horse carriage and railway.
She thought the former was slow and delightful, if expensive, while the latter was quick, cheap and without charm.
The Golden Boats have come back beautifully appointed, with an antique feel, tasteful decor and double lateen sails.
As they carry small numbers of passengers, this is the most luxurious way to see the monuments without crowds.
Join me in this discovery of Egypt's past and present while we sail on a small, 7 cabin Dahabeya, visit small villages along the way and overnight in small coves where larger ships can't dock.
