The new The Aegean Experience & Cairo cruise from Voyages to Antiquity will appeal to travellers keen to experience the myriad marvels of Greek and Egyptian civilisations.

The 13-day cruise-tour combines an extensive new shore excursion programme from Cairo with an itinerary that includes a total of six nights in premium hotels.

Programme highlights include the iconic ancient sites (Athens, Delphi, Knossos and the Pyramids of Giza) along with a variety of other sights from the Crusader fortresses of Rhodes to the catacombs of Alexandria as well as a dinner cruise on the mighty River Nile.

As with all Voyages to Antiquity cruises, guests will be accompanied by expert speakers chosen to help bring the destinations visited to life; archaeologist Dr David Price-Williams, who knows the local sites well, and broadcaster Ernest Rea, who specialises in the history of religions.
