Egypt and the Nile: the two are inextricably linked. Almost 2,500 years ago, Herodotus, looking back even then on 25 centuries of recorded history, wrote, “Egypt is an acquired country, the gift of the river.” The ancient Egyptians took advantage of their bountiful gift by building a civilization almost alien in its grandeur, ennobling the Nile’s banks with stunning monuments to their overweening sense of destiny. Even before the days of Herodotus, Egypt and its life-giving river were lodestones of the imagination. This custom tour of Egypt celebrates their connection and their wonders.
