Tour Details

This is an exciting and exclusive two-week tour of ancient Egypt from July 23-August 6, 2027. On this expedition to Egypt, you will see all the iconic sites including a visit to the brand-new Grand Egyptian Museum. You will have direct entry to sites that are not typically open to the public. This is a once-in-a-lifetime luxury trip to explore Egypt with two Egyptologists as your guides and supplemental lectures or visits arranged with famous archaeologists, authors, and experts in the field of Egyptology.

Discover the beauty and majesty of ancient Egypt culture by touring sites such as the massive Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, Abu Simbel, Valley of Kings, and many other amazing sites throughout the old and new Kingdoms. Additionally, Direct Travel has been granted special permission by the Minister of Antiquities allowing our guests to stand between the paws of the Great Sphinx and gain exclusive access to places closed to the public. We will be joined by the world’s most famous archaeologist, Dr. Zahi Hawass at the Giza Plateau and other special guests throughout the tour that include world-renowned scholars, museum directors, or other high-profile locals. With Direct Travel you will experience Egypt like no one else! This tour includes stays at the Legendary Mena House in Cario, the Old Cataract Aswan plus the two Four Seasons Properties.

The solar eclipse portion of this trip will be led by Dr. Carolyn Sumners of the Houston Museum of Natural Science, a veteran of 13 solar eclipses.


We are still perfecting the details of our itineraries. The final version will be available on or before January 1, 2025.

The itinerary is subject to change at the discretion of Eclipse Tours.com or Direct Travel. In particular, viewing the total solar eclipse will be weather dependent, and there is always a chance that passengers will not be able to view totality or view it only for a short period of time. Neither Eclipse Tours.com nor Direct Travel makes any guarantee as to the viewing of the total solar eclipse. Keep in mind that unexpected schedule changes could affect the program. Your Tour Director will keep you fully informed of any changes to planned activities. A sense of humor, flexibility, and patience will be greatly appreciated during this program and especially on eclipse day!
