Welcome to Egypt
Join Doug Jones, one of America's premier travelog producers, on an intriguing journey through a mysterious land.
In the 5th Century B.C., Herodotus, the Greek father of history, made a journey across the Mediterranean to the ancient land of Egypt. He marveled at the pyramids, gazed across the lifeless desert then looked at the fertile Nile Valley and made the statement "Egypt is the gift of the Nile."
On the basis of this theme, Doug Jones takes you through this exotic and timeless land.
See the pyramids and the sphinx and hear the story of their construction. Visit the farms of Egypt and see how time has truly stood still. Wander through the Valley of the Kings, visit Luxor and Karnak and see archeological wonders that are unrivaled on earth. Feel the pulse of the bazaars, visit the great museums, journey into the desert to visit a Coptic monastery and explore the great mosques of Cairo.
Visit Alexandria 's cotton mills, see Cairo 's belly dancers, visit the Oasis of the Fayum, the Suez Canal, the Aswan High Dam, the Temples of Abu Simbel and see archeological digs in progress as well as temple restorations.
Your journey to this intriguing land will conclude with the story of Howard Carter's 1921 discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamen. The dazzle of the gold -- 2,448 pounds of solid gold form the inner coffin -- will leave a lasting memory of your visit to this magical land.
