Join me, as we return to Egypt and relive one of our most memorable travel experiences. Our last visit was more than a walk through history, it was a connection with our ancestors. I knew we had to go back, and several travelers who joined this trip in 2019 have asked that I repeat it. With a stay directly at the Giza Pyramids, and an upgraded sail along the Nile, we're going back, but with a different and more spiritual experience. Of course, we'll have Ahmed, our "guide to the stars" leading us with a heavy hand on our connection to Egypt. We'll spend 3 nights cruising down the Nile River, stand in total awe and amazement at the ancient pyramids, and swim in the beautiful clear waters of the Red Sea. Join Sonya Lowery as she brings you on another breathtaking journey - the World Next Door's 2022 RETURN TO EGYPT!

I highly recommend the purchase of travel insurance. There are lots of different kinds of travel insurance plans that you can purchase, ranging from "cancel for any reason" to "limited coverage". You must purchase travel insurance on your own. I have provided some companies below, but you can choose your own. You must initiate contact with these travel insurance providers.
Please know that many travel insurance companies require that you purchase insurance within a certain number of days of booking the trip here and paying a deposit. Do not wait to look into travel insurance, if you do, it may be too late!

EgyptAir is our chosen airline carrier for this trip. They have the most direct flights so we can use our vacation time efficiently! This tour has been planned prior to the release of EgyptAir's flight schedule for September 2022. Once this schedule has been released, the flight details will be sent to you. Please note that this tour is subject to slight modifications if the final flight schedules do not align. We endeavor to avoid ANY changes. You will be informed of any necessary changes as soon as we receive information from the airlines about any changes on their end.
The plan for airfare is to have the outbound flight to Egypt originate out of JFK on Sep 5, but when the trip is over, you will return to IAD instead of JFK on the morning of Sep 16. The reason for this is due to travel departure/arrival times, to maximize how much time we will have access to our rooms, and to minimize half asleep zombie walks through airports. This is what we are planning, but will send updates within a few months about the final air schedule.
If you purchase travel insurance, depending on the type of plan that you purchase and your reason for cancellation, you may be eligible to get all of your money back.
