Voyages Jules Verne Launches ‘Travels In Egypt’ Brochure With Exclusive New Steamship

Voyages Jules Verne, the innovative tour operator has launched its first ever 2005/06 ‘Travels in Egypt’ brochure, comprising a selection of journeys exploring the civilisations of ancient Egypt, facilitated by a fine selection of excellent 5-star hotel and cruise vessel accommodation. New this year is an inaugural series of exclusive cruises on the splendid SS Misr.

Once the property of the King of Egypt and newly restored, each sailing is limited to 45 guests travelling in considerable comfort on ‘the most luxurious steamship on the Nile’. In addition, the SS Karim - King Fuad’s Nile steamer has again been privately chartered, for the winter season.

Passage through antiquity
Passage through antiquity

A ribbon of butterscotch shimmered across the horizon, the final remnant of a glorious setting sun. Nightfall comes rapidly on the Nile, and the remaining feluccas hurried past, seeking anchorage before darkness. In three millennia, the single-sail, gaff-rigged vessels have not changed. Today, as in 1000 BC, they skim the water with seamless grace, still devoid of running lights.

From the pool deck of Abercrombie & Kent's 18-stateroom Sun Boat III, we gazed west across the Nile at a scene unchanged since the feluccas first sailed. Yet behind us, where our boat was berthed, sprawled the metropolis of Aswan, with 1 million residents and home of Egypt's technological marvel, the Aswan High Dam. It is the departure point for an equally compelling marvel: the transplanted temples of Philae, now enshrined on higher ground on the tiny island of Agilkia on the Nile. The setting epitomized what we had come to expect in seven nights on this river: extraordinary antiquities quietly coexisting in the shadows of an encroaching modern world.

The Pharonic Village - A Living Museum
The Pharonic Village - A Living Museum

Take a step back in time; about three thousand years back, to be exact. Just a few miles from the center of Cairo is a time machine waiting to take you on a fantastic journey to the days of the Pharaohs, a time brought to life by an incredible group of actors and actresses, faithful and exact reproductions of buildings, clothing, and lifestyles.

The temple is only one example of the exacting details that have gone into making the past come to life at the Pharaonic Village. Over a hundred actors and actresses perform all the daily activities and arts of the ancient Egyptians, including agriculture, pottery, sculpture, weaving, and much more. Everyone that would have existed in an ancient Egyptian city is here in the modern recreation, from pharaohs to fishermen, from potters to priests. Because of this attention to detail, the Pharaonic Village is more than education and entertainment, it is a vital resource in the preservation of our knowledge of the ancient world.

Can't get to Egypt to see the Pyramids, then this is perhaps the next best thing - Pyramidcam

PyramidCam was established with two major objectives in mind: First, we want to show the beauty and grandeur of the Pyramids to those in the world community who may never have the chance to visit Egypt. Second, by providing live high resolution color images of the Pyramids over the Internet, we hope to encourage those who have thought about visiting Egypt as a tourist destination to do so.

It has live images every 30 seconds Sunrise to Sunset, times are given on the website - oh while you're watching, though, don't forget to capture the image for your image gallery. The images are for everybody everywhere.

World of the Pharoahs
World of the Pharoahs

LUXOR, Egypt - For all the hype about Tutankhamun, his tomb is quite a letdown. It's another hole in the scrabbly hill peppered with the burial places of ancient Egypt's pharaohs, the Valley of the Kings. Somehow I expected more.

If the exterior wasn't disappointing enough, the guide tells us it's really not worth the extra admission to go inside. There are better tombs, he says, with much more lavishly decorated wall frescoes, some still resplendent in their original blue and ochre pigments. The boy pharaoh's grave, it turns out, is one of the more ordinary.

There's a new way to cruise the Nile - on a small, traditional craft with a pace that suits the river. It's a dahabiya, a traditional, two-masted Nile sailing cruiser.

Four replica dahabiyas have just been launched. They have six cabins - doubles and twins - and travel at half the speed of the big Nile cruisers. They are fitted out in timber and furnished with antiques, each slightly differently.
