Choose Your Own Adventure

Exploring Egypt

We're sorry to say it, but there are some destinations that are more challenging for female travelers. But don't let that stop you: On Abercrombie & Kent's Journeys for Women (to destinations like Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco), you can satisfy your adventurous spirit and skip the stress. Join the 11-day Egypt Unveiled trip, for example, and you'll get plenty of photo ops at the pyramids and tours of pharaoh tombs before setting off on a four-day Nile cruise to comparatively less-trafficked spots such as Dendera (home to one of the country's best-preserved temples), Edfu, and Kom Ombo. The itinerary is a little heavy on "girly" stuff, such as perfume making, henna painting, and a visit to a patisserie, but makes up for it with a lecture by (female) Egyptologist Manal Saad. Factor in stays at luxe hotels like the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo and the Mena House Oberoi, and it's the perfect way to celebrate the sisterhood, without having to actually travel with your own sister.
