(DOWNERS GROVE, IL – August 25, 2011) – Egypt has been transformed.   There is an unmistakable sense of confidence and optimism in the air, and history itself seems to be unfolding before your eyes. Egyptians are eager to demonstrate their legendary hospitality. There has never been a better time to travel to Egypt — and now, there has never been a better offer.

Abercrombie & Kent has created a brand-new itinerary that invites travellers to experience Egypt at this unique moment in history. With the same standard of service but fewer inclusions than a standard A&K journey, Egypt: A Moment in History provides exceptional value –starting at $1,995– and includes the Pyramids and the Sphinx, the temples along the Nile, the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities and Islamic Cairo, along with a four–night Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan aboard the award-winning ‘Sun Boat IV.’ Tour the Valley of the Kings in Luxor where more than 60 magnificent tombs from the pharaohs of the New Kingdom are carved into the desert rock.  Marvel at the newly-restored Avenue of the Sphinxes, the ceremonial walkway between the Temple of Luxor and the Temple of Karnak, lined with hundreds of stone guardians with the head of woman and the body of a lion.
