Follow in the footsteps of the ancient Pharaohs through 5,000 years of history on an expertly crafted Egypt adventure with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic. Explore the towering pyramids of Giza, the mystery of the Sphinx, and storied burial chambers as you travel alongside Egyptologist guides and certified photo instructors who offer insightful perspectives on the world’s richest trove of ancient treasures. Sail along the legendary Nile aboard a purpose-built river ship, or navigate the Suez Canal aboard the National Geographic Explorer, enjoying superlative amenities and world-class dining after days spent discovering historic destinations like the iconic Valley of the Kings, the grand city of Cairo, or the exciting underwater realm of the Red Sea.

I have never met anyone who isn't captivated by Egypt in some way throughout their lives. It’s as if we all have a magnet embedded within us that pulls us to Africa’s northern desert and the land of the Pharaohs.

Our Team in Egypt

Every member of our team is committed to ensuring you have an unforgettable experience. National Geographic experts—Egyptologists, archaeologists, and photographers—will join select Egypt expeditions to illuminate the hidden gems found in the Land of Pharaohs. Exploring in small groups, you’ll hear different perspectives each day of your voyage, and because there are no assigned groups you can gravitate toward the experts who share your interests and inspire your curiosity. 

Our knowledgeable and passionate expedition team is complemented by our dedicated hotel team who strives to ensure that your time on board is as comfortable and rewarding as your time on shore.
