Wild Women Expeditions has launched the “Goddesses, Queens and Heroines Tour,” a woman’s-only tour of Egypt from November 1-12, 2018. The program will include visits to museums, temples and world-famous sites such as the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, stops in major Egyptian cities and cultural centers, and active excursions like traveling four days along the Nile River aboard a motorized sail boat.
Throughout the journey, travelers will be led by Yassmin Fekry, an Egyptologist and a tour guide since 2003. As an Egyptologist, she interprets the stories of ancient Egypt from important sites and museums, including the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, which has over 10,000 pieces from every period of Egyptian history. Along the way, Fekry sheds light onto contemporary life in Egypt by arranging meet-ups at a food and camel market, a family farm and at small family-run businesses.
Highlights of the 12-day journey include:
