Ancient Kingdoms of Jordan & Egypt • March 24 - April 5, 2020

Tour Code: AKJE20

 
Many millenniums ago, the sands of the Middle East gave rise to the important cultures of the Nabateans, the Egyptians and the Nubians.  Intertwined by trading and empire-building, each of these civilizations has left amazing architecture and artifacts for the world to remember them.  Join us as we travel from Jordan where we’ll get to explore the Citadel of Amman and Petra, the gem of the Nabateans.  Then, we’ll visit the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, and travel to the Southern regions of the Egyptian Nile where Nubian influences merge with ancient Egyptian, Ptolemaic and other African traditions in the temples and shrines of Lake Nassar.   This is a tour that will bring out the Indiana Jones in each of us.
