World's Greatest Dream Trips: Egypt

"As a former antiquities teachers, I've always loved the subject of ancient Egypt. I'd visit museums and archaeological digs." —Helen Jorgensen, 65, Teacher

T+L A-List advisor Malaka Hilton (10 days from $5,950) suggests starting in Alexandria with a tour of the underwater excavations at Pharos Lighthouse, one of the original Seven Wonders of the World. Other highlights: the largest known Roman burial site in Egypt and the Royal Jewelry Museum. It’s a six-hour drive to the Siwa Oasis—which Alexander the Great visited in 331 B.C.—for an unplugged stay at the desert eco-lodge Adrere Amellal. Just outside Cairo, Hilton can arrange private viewings of the ongoing digs at the Great Pyramids of Giza.
