The Alexander the Great & Rosetta Stone Discovery Trip
July 16 – July 23, 2018
This trip will begin in Luxor, Upper Egypt’s ancient capital that is now famously considered the land of tombs and temples. We’ll then journey north to Cairo and spend a day visiting the Egyptian Museum to learn more about all of the ancient secrets that the Rosetta Stone unlocked on the anniversary of its discovery. We’ll then head north to visit Alexandria on the anniversary of the birth of this city’s namesake, Alexander the Great. And finally, we’ll finally venture out to visit and explore the Pyramids of Giza for the trip’s magnificent grand finale.
The Cleopatra Anniversary Trip
August 8 – August 15, 2018
On the 12th of August in 30 BC, the last dynasty of Pharaohs of Egypt came to an end when the great queen Cleopatra ended her life by allowing a snake to bite her arm as the mighty Roman navy laid siege to her glorious capital of Alexandria. August 12th of this year will mark the 2,048th anniversary of the great Cleopatra’s death and Egypt Elite will be honoring her memory with a specially planned trip to Egypt that will begin with a trip to her great capital of Alexandria on August 12th. After this special day in Cleopatra’s home city, we will continue our journey to the rest of Egypt to explore its millennia of ancient and modern history.

The King Tut Anniversary Trip

“Can you see anything?” Lord Carnarvon asked. “Yes, wonderful things,” Howard Carter replied.
