"Playing Egyptologists in The Valley of the Kings". LUXOR, EGYPT After doing some research, the tombs of Egypt's pharaohs became stories of an ancient religious way of life and death.      

"The Nabatean City by Day and Night". PETRA, JORDAN Glorious temple facades carved into rose-red rock cliffs and the dramatic narrow Siq gorge make the ancient city of Petra stunning by day and magical by night.   

"Bobbing Like Corks". DEAD SEA, JORDAN Floating in the Dead Sea ranks among our most unusual experiences.  There is just no way to sink in this water made of 30% salt.

"The Pyramids at Dashur". CAIRO, EGYPT.  They many not  have the Sphinx but they also don't have a plethora of touts and a view of Pizza Hut! These great pyramids in their more remote and serene location better evoke the mystery of ancient Egypt than their counterparts at Giza.
