Avalon Announces Return to Egypt and the Nile

After a brief hiatus, Avalon Waterways is returning to Egypt in 2020 with the MS Farah on its New Taste of Egypt itinerary.

“We are thrilled to return to Egypt and the Nile River with this once-in-a-lifetime vacation,” said Pam Hoffee, Managing Director for Avalon Waterways. “From welcoming travelers to Cairo, ‘Mother of the World,’ and inviting them to look up at the ‘Stairway to the Sky’ to welcoming them onboard the MS Farah to sail through Africa’s ancient history and civilizations along the Nile, this is a very special, awe-inspiring experience for travelers of all ages.”

On the 10-day journey to ancient Egypt travelers will explore the Pyramids and Sphinx in Giza, visit the Ramses II and Alabaster Sphinx in Memphis as well as Cairo’s oldest church – the Hanging Church – and Tutankhamun’s Tomb in the Egyptian Museum.

They will embark on the MS Farah in Luxor for a Nile Cruise. Along the Nile River, guest will visit the Luxor Temple; Avenue of Sphinxes; the massive Karnak Temple Complex, including the Temple of Amun-Ra; the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens; the Temple of Kom, Temple of Isis, and more.
