Rainbow Getaways Events - Egypt - Oct '24

Oct 9, 2024 to Oct 22, 2024
Egypt & Jordan

Rainbow Getaways is going to Egypt!

 
Join Rainbow Getaways on an incredible adult-only journey across Egypt and Jordan in October 2024. We'll explore ancient wonders, marvel at colossal structures, and have a memorable Nile Cruise.
 
Travel to Egypt and Jordan is at the top of many bucket lists, and while the two countries present additional hurdles for the LGBTQ+ community, Rainbow Getaways has partnered with renowned Egypt and Beyond to create an itinerary that will allow us to feel confident and comfortable to enjoy and explore our destination. 
 
Between October 9th and 19th, 2024, this small group bucket list vacation will take us across Egypt to probe ancient history. During our 11-night journey, we will visit the Great Pyramids of Giza, Alexandria, cruise the Nile, Abu Simbel, and many others. We will stay in hotels that are welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community, and as a group, we'll visit sites dating over 4,000 years. 
 
After our time in Egypt, you'll have the option to continue on to Jordan for an extended tour to Petra and the Dead Sea in Jordan between October 19 and 22nd, 2024
 
Explore the incredible itinerary and if you have any questions, send us an email at contactus@rainbowgetaways.net or give us a call at 321-344-9001.
 
Prices from $6,100 per person based on double occupancy.
