In Cairo, tour the Egyptian Museum, Sultan Hassan Mosque, and Ben Ezra Synagogue, and travel to Giza to marvel at the pyramids and the Sphinx, with lunch at the legendary Mena House. Fly to Luxor to spend two nights at the historic Sofitel Winter Palace and ring in the New Year with a festive celebration. Discover ancient treasures including the massive Colossi of Memnon and the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, then board the intimate Sanctuary Nile Adventurer in Luxor for a four-night Nile cruise. Along the way, stop at the unique double temple at Kom Ombo, Temple of Horus, and the iconic Karnak Temple.

Disembark in Aswan for a morning flight to Abu Simbel. See the monumental temples of Ramses II and his favorite wife, Queen Nefertari, constructed 3,200 years ago to intimidate enemies from the south. Fly back to Cairo.
