Egypt is home to one of the world's most awe-inspiring remnants of ancient civilization. Dating back to 5,000 B.C., it boasts of a comprehensive collection of artifacts and monuments on the planet.
A Getaway Goddess trip to Egypt is incomplete without a visit to the Pyramids of Giza, the enigmatic Sphinx, monuments of Luxor and granite statues in Aswan. And of course a cruise down the ancient Nile river.
