Join the president of Civilized Adventures, Denell Falk and discover the Lands of the Lost City and the Pharaohs.

This adventure will take us through some of the most important archaeological sites of both Jordan and Egypt. We will start in Jordan where we will be immersed in the centuries old history of the lost city of Petra and have a kick of adrenaline during our desert jeep tour in Wadi Rum

Next we are off to Egypt where we will not just see the pyramids, we will walk into one. That's the best time to start asking hundreds of questions to our expert Egyptologist guide. We will experience the massive collection of the new Egyptian Museum of Cairo before flying down south and boarding our Luxury Nile Cruise for 7 nights.  Our cruise will allow us to go on day trips to some of the most important temples located along the River Nile. The views from the boat are incredible and very exotic! During our week on the Nile, we will also have the opportunity to explore the import archaeological site of Abu Simbel - thought by many to be the best temple in Egypt.
