Gay Egypt TourNo country in the world has so many impressive antiquities as does Egypt. Few civilizations can compete with Egypt’s magnificent structures, its legendary history, or its long centuries of peace. For tens of thousands of years, the River Nile has been the focal point of life, and ancient Egyptians believed the river’s waters came from a “mysterious heaven of plenty.” The availability of this unlimited supply of water allowed the creation of a society which produced the wonders of ancient Egypt.

Quote or Reservation

The ancient Greeks saw Egypt as a source of all wisdom. Roman emperors traveled here to marvel at the pyramids. As a result, Egypt is probably one of the world’s oldest vacation spots. During our exciting 30th anniversary year-long celebration, we invite you on a cultural gay group odyssey to Egypt to cruise on the Nile and step back into history. In addition to the main tour, we offer a pre-tour extension to Alexandria, Egypt, and a post-tour extension to Jordan.

Alexandria Sightseeing
Alexandria gay tourKnown as "The Pearl of the Mediterranean", Alexandria has been a destination for travelers since its foundation by Alexander the Great in 331 BC. After declining into little more than a sleepy fishing village, Alexandria was revived in the 19th century as an important port, and immigrants from Europe and the Middle East came to settle here, bringing a cosmopolitan flair and a heyday captured in Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet. We begin our full-day sightseeing tour with a visit to the modern, disk-shaped Alexandria Library and Museum, which comprises more than 1,800 archaeological pieces that narrate the Pharaonic, Greek, Roman, Coptic, Islamic and modern history of Egypt.

We see Qait Bay Fort, set on the site of the famous Pharos Lighthouse of Alexandria and one of the most important defensive strongholds on the Mediterranean coast in its day. Next, visit Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi Mosque, one of Alexandria's largest and most famous religious monuments. After feasting for lunch at a popular fish market restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean, we continue to the Roman Amphitheater, the only one of its kind in Egypt. Finally, we visit the Catacombs of Kom El Shugafa, the largest Roman burial site in Egypt and the final resting place for 300 individuals, whose tombs are cut into the bedrock in massive tiers, descending 35 meters (115 feet) into the ground.

It is described as the largest archeological museum in the world displaying the heritage of a single civilization, exhibiting the full Tutankhamun collection with many pieces to be displayed for the first time. The museum is sited on 120 acres of land approximately two kilometers from the Giza pyramids and is part of a new master plan for the plateau. The Museum contains over 100,000 artifacts, reflecting Egypt's past from prehistory until the Greek and Roman Periods. As you enter the museum, you can't miss the colossal statue of King Ramses II, nor the 87 huge royal artefacts exhibited at the grand stairs. These stairs lead up to an impressive 28-meter-high glass façade overlooking the pyramids of Giza. The GEM also hosts over 5,000 artefacts from the tomb of the golden Pharaoh Tutankhamun.

We will have lunch today aboard the 1901 paddle steamship Le Pacha, one of Cairo’s landmark dining venues moored on the Nile. Returning to our hotel, the remainder of the day is at leisure.

Memphis / Sakkara / Pyramids of Giza
Egypt gay tour - SphinxToday features some of the most extraordinary highlights of your tour! Our day begins with the legendary city of Memphis, which was founded in 3100 BC by Menes, the Pharaoh who united Upper and Lower Egypt. It became the capital of the Old Kingdom. Next, we move on to Sakkara, the former necropolis (cemetery) for the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis and the place where the very first pyramids were built as tombs for kings. The pyramids here feature six steps on the outside, representing the pharaoh's stepladder to heaven. Discover the famous Step Pyramid of King Zoser, the first pyramid ever built and the world's oldest freestanding stone structure. Lunch today is at a beautiful restaurant overlooking the Great Pyramids of Giza.

The Great Pyramids of Giza are the only present-day survivors of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, built over 4,500 years ago as giant tombs for the pharaohs Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure, who were a father, son and grandson. The pyramids are truly monumental in scale, with the largest, Khufu's, constructed from over two million enormous stone blocks. We visit the Solar Boat Museum as well as the enigmatic Sphinx with the body of a lion and the face of a man wearing a royal head cloth, which workers may have based on King Khafre to guard his enormous funerary monument. We return to the hotel after a thrilling day, and the evening is at your leisure.

Our next stop is the Church of St. Sergius, located inside the Roman fortress in Old Cairo, followed by the Hanging Church, so named because it sits "suspended" on top of the Fortress of Babylon that the Romans built when they came to Egypt.

Next, visit the Synagogue of Ben Ezra, built during the time of the once-thriving Jewish community in Egypt. Inside, the so-called "Geniza Documents" were found, a treasure hailed as an unparalleled source of information about the life of the Jews in Egypt's past. We continue our tour to the Citadel, a medieval fortress built in 1176 to protect the city from Crusaders which sits high above Cairo on a limestone hill. Today, the Citadel complex houses mosques and museums, including the National Military Museum.

At 1,200 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea has drawn people to its shores in search of curative secrets. Due to high daily temperatures, low humidity and high atmospheric pressure, the air is extremely rich and the high content of oxygen and magnesium make breathing a lot easier. With the highest content of minerals and salts in the world, the Dead Sea water possesses anti-inflammatory properties, and the dark mud found on the shores have been used for over 2000 years for therapeutic purposes. Enjoy free time this afternoon to float in the water and take a mud bath on the shore. Dinner tonight is at an Italian restaurant located beside the infinity pool at our luxury seaside hotel.

Petra

Take a short horse ride from the main gate of Petra to the entrance of the old city, and then continue on foot through the winding canyon to the dramatic entrance. The ancient city of Petra was built between 800 BC to AD 100 by Nabatean Arabs. During this era Petra was a fortress, carved out of the jagged rocks in an area which was virtually inaccessible. When shipping slowly displaced caravan routes, the city's importance gradually dwindled and fell into decline. Nowadays Petra has become a popular tourist attraction, since being featured prominently in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1984).

During our tour we stop for lunch at the Basin Restaurant inside the Petra site. Enjoy free time to explore on your own and take amazing photographs before returning to our hotel. The afternoon is free. This evening we have dinner at Nabatean Cave Bar, located inside a Nabataean tomb in the hillside.

The largest and most magnificent of Jordan's desert landscapes, it has been virtually untouched by humans. A maze of monolithic rock formations rises from the desert floor to heights of 5,740 feet. It may be best known for its connection with British officer T. E. Lawrence, who passed through several times during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18. The area was featured in the film Lawrence of Arabia (1962). Explore the desert on a two-hour tour in 4x4 Bedouin vehicles. We end the tour near a Bedouin tent where lunch will be served.

Trip Notes

Entry Requirements
All visitors to Egypt are required to have a visa. Citizens of the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Canada can get their visa upon arrival, valid for a period of up to three months. Nationals of other countries are required to obtain a visa from the Egyptian embassy in their home country before departing. The cost of the visa is $25, and is not included. The Government of Egypt has created a website for the issuance of “e-visas”. There are other websites purporting to offer electronic visas, some of which reportedly charge double the official price, but this is the only official Government of Egypt portal for this service. U.S. citizens and the citizens of 44 other countries are eligible to apply through this means in advance of their travel.
For those continuing to Jordan, we will obtain a visa upon entry. By providing our passport details in advance we can obtain a free collective entry visa for the entire group.

Exit Requirements
No airport tax is currently charged upon departure from Egypt, nor is one anticipated. However, any such taxes or fees instituted after publication of this itinerary will be the responsibility of the clients to pay directly to the appropriate airport authorities. Similarly, airport departure taxes are always included in the cost of your airline ticket departing from Jordan.

Immunizations and Health
No immunizations are compulsory, but inoculations for typhoid, polio, malaria, hepatitis and tetanus are advised. Please consult your personal physician about immunization planning. Click here to see the CDC website detailing health information for travelers to Egypt. Click here to read the recommendations for travelers to Jordan.

Making Travel Arrangements to Egypt (and Jordan)
Two domestic flights within Egypt are included on our main tour. The international flight from Cairo, Egypt to Amman, Jordan, is included in the price of our Jordan post-tour extension.
International airfare is NOT included. You need to get your round-trip international air ticket to, and returning from, Cairo, Egypt (CAI airport code). If you are adding on our post-tour extension to Jordan, you will need to fly into Cairo (CAI), and return home from Amman, Jordan (AMM).
For the pre-tour Alexandria extension, please arrive in Cairo by 4:00 pm on Thursday, March 5, 2020. For the Main Tour, plan to arrive in Cairo by 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 8, 2020. Early morning departure is from Cairo on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. If you participate in the post-tour extension to Jordan, arrange your departure from Amman on Saturday, March 21, 2020.

What to Bring
Expect Cairo temperatures to be 54-73 degrees F. Luxor and Aswan will be 60-80 degrees F. Jordan can be cooler. Bring light-colored, lightweight cotton clothes that breathe well, as well as items for layering for added warmth. Dress is casual and conservative; your clothes should not insult local sensibilities. Loose garments are more comfortable and allow wind to circulate, creating a natural ventilation system. Pack light and try to carry only one suitcase in addition to your carry-on bag. Pack any medications you require in your carry-on bag just in case your luggage doesn’t arrive when you do. Leave expensive jewelry at home—it marks you as a wealthy tourist and an easy target. .

Money Matters
In Egypt the currency is the Egyptian pound (EGP), subdivided into 100 piastres (PT). Notes come in denominations of 100, 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1 LE, and 50 and 25 PT. Coins are 25, 20, 10, and 5 PT. All international hotels and most restaurants and shops accept the major credit cards. ATMs are widely available, and many banks provide cash advances on credit cards. Make sure your ATM card is linked to one of the worldwide networks (like Plus, Novus or Cirrus), and call your banks before departure to let them know you will be traveling abroad.
In Jordan the currency is the Jordanian dinar, divided into 10 dirhams, 100 qirsh (also called piastres) or 1000 fulus.

Tipping Guidelines
We will provide suggested tipping guidelines prior to departure, and will present a collective tip to drivers, guides and cruise staff at appropriate points throughout the tour.

Note:
The recent trend is for travelers to finalize their plans much closer to departure time than was customary in the past. While we try to be as flexible as possible we often must turn away last minute registrants because we relinquish hotel space and air reservations 8 – 12 weeks prior to departure! Please keep this in mind when making your travel plans.

A trip to Egypt is a high point in the life of every dedicated world traveler. With the opening of its new National Museum and many tour upgrades, there is no better time to go than now! If you have any questions, please email us.
