THE MOST EXCLUSIVE TOURS OF EGYPT EVER OFFERED with the world’s most eminent archaeologists
For years, Archaeological Paths’ exclusive historical tours of Egypt attracted travelers drawn to the country’s ancient past. For many, cruising down the Nile, visiting the ancient tombs of the pharaohs, exploring the Pyramids of Giza, or marveling at the Great Sphinx are bucket-list items. But the challenge of fulfilling a much-longed-for dream is the experience must match — or better, exceed — expectations. Archaeological Paths promises to completely change the way visitors explore the country as the company benefits from an unparalleled level of access.
Discover the Land of the Pharaohs with the most eminent authorities in the world of archaeology and gain beyond-the-guidebook insight into Egypt’s ancient and modern history. Learn firsthand about the latest discoveries from Dr. Zahi Hawass, the world’s most-famous archaeologist. Enjoy unparalleled access to the wonders of ancient Egypt with Dr. Mostafa Waziri, Egypt’s Head of Antiquities. Enrich your experience by meeting with renowned scholars, museum directors, high-profile ministers and even members of a former president’s family. Throughout the tour, stay in the finest, historic 5-star hotels, sail on a luxury Nile cruise ship, dine on delicious local cuisine and embrace the unique Egyptian culture.
You will have unparalleled access to Egypt’s greatest monuments. From ancient tombs, pyramids, temples and active excavation sites to modern museums and presidential palaces, our guests have special access to places others can only dream of. Imagine the Great Pyramid and the entire Giza Plateau open just for you.

With us, you avoid crowds and explore Egypt’s best-known wonders outside regular hours for an intimate experience, making your greatest dreams a reality.

Birmingham, Alabama, was named for the city in the English Midlands that kept the fires burning, warmed the homes and made much of the steel for the United Kingdom’s industrial revolution. Decades later, the American city also made steel, so much of it, in fact, it became known as the “Magic City” for steel production, and the moniker stuck. But today’s Magic City makes more than steel, taking the raw product a few more steps to become a major center for automobile parts manufacturing and more, including Honda, Mercedes-Benz and U.S. Steel. Thanks to local leadership and long-term planning, the magic still works for Birmingham, as evidenced by its role hosting The World Games 2022 last summer.

Originally a thriving Colonial seaport, Newport became the summer playground for the Gilded Age’s elite in the late 1880s. Today their mansions dot the coast of Aquidneck Island, and their favorite pastimes — sailing and tennis — still dominate the city’s recreational offerings. In fact, Newport hosted the first U.S. Open tennis championship in 1881 and golf tourna- ment in 1895 and hosted the America’s Cup from 1930 to 1983. You can experience most of Newport on your own, including the mansions, but don’t rule out a guided tour or two when you visit.
