It is said that Cleopatra could speak seven languages and had exquisite taste. Egypt's ancient wise monarch would certainly approve of Zoom Vacations®' trip to Egypt, fit for a queen.

Zoom Vacations® Alumni have asked us for years to design a trip to Egypt. After much research and a trial run of the trip we are pleased to announce our first Egyptian vacation.

This intriguing country of gods and goddesses, pharaohs and fantasies will inspire and surprise you as it has done so to its travelers for centuries. But Egypt is so much more than mythology and magic, and offers more to see and do than ruins and camel rides.

Zoom Vacations®' trip to Egypt brings out the rich history, culture and cuisine in addition to the things every visitor to the country must experience. At times you will feel like a pharaoh, while at other times you will see the authentic Egypt of today, and what it means to live in this fascinating country.

Its royal history is reflected in luxurious interiors that are embellished with exquisite antiques, handcrafted furniture and rich textiles.
