Summary
  • "The land of the pharaohs awakens, and this magical program is there to capture it. Through reconstructions and the work of historians and Egyptologists, you'll travel back 5,000 years to experience the splendor of ancient Egypt. See the wondrous structures created with simple tools and massive manpower. Visit the Pyramids of Giza and Sakkara. Meet the Sphinx. Marvel at the Temple of Luxor and the Temple of Ammon at Karnak. Travel across the Nile, explore Memphis and meander through the Left Bank. Taste the food and test ancient recipes from history's most fascinating time"--Container insert
  • "Touring Egypt--Visit the cradle of civilization and culture. See how 5,000 years of history has influenced the land today. The old quarters still convey an atmosphere of the Arabian nights. Outside of Cairo are the Pyramids and the Sphinx of Giza--monuments without parallel. Cruise the Nile, where life goes on as it has for millennia, to ancient Thebes, the Temples of Karnak and Luxor, the Valley of the Kings and Tut's tomb. Your tour also takes you to Esna, Aswan, Memphis and more. Experience the wonders of Egypt and learn why it was considered the most civilized nation of ancient times."--Container insert
