Grand Voyage to the Aegean


Delhi to Athens
March 2 - April 5, 2016

A five-day tour of India's Golden triangle marks the beginning of this grand voyage through the ancient cultures of three continents. Jaipur - capital of Rajasthan, Delhi - divided between the old Moghul city and British-built New Delhi, and Agra - with the beautiful Taj Mahal, are the three points of the Golden Triangle. Embarking in Mumbai, you will set sail for the land of Oman and visits to Muscat and Salalah before a few days relaxing at sea.

Arriving at Safaga you travel to Luxor and two breathtaking sites: the vast temple complex of Karnak and the marvels of the necropolis in the Valley of the Kings. Then, to fascinating Jordan where you will tour the fabulously well-preserved city of Petra.

Your journey then continues to the Suez Canal en-route to Cyprus and the chance to see the impressive 2nd-century AD stadium at Kourion. In the Aegean, visit some of the finest Hellenic and Roman ruins to be found anywhere, like Ephesus, Aphrodisias and the splendid monuments in Delos. Enjoy the beauty of Santorini before finishing your journey with an unforgettable two-night hotel stay in Athens.
