Trip highlights

Visit the Great Pyramids of Giza
Highlight #1
Visit the Great Pyramids of Giza
Sure, you’ve seen the photos as a child and dreamt of visiting for years – but you’ll still pinch yourself when you finally see them in real life.
Abu Simbel : Larger than life
Highlight #2
Abu Simbel : Larger than life
With colossal statues of Ramses II, massive pillars down the entrance chamber and walls covered entirely in hieroglyphics, Abu Simbel leaves you feeling tiny and awed.
Experience Nile Cleopatra-style
Highlight #3
Experience Nile Cleopatra-style
By far the most romantic way to sail the Nile, sit back, relax and listen to the gentle water lapping as you ride the iconic felucca down the river.
Shop like Egyptians do
Highlight #4
Shop like Egyptians do
Stroll through bazaars studded with hundreds of shops that sell a myriad of items: colourful lamps, small marble statues, jewellery and a range of little souvenirs.

Itinerary

Cairo to Aswan via Overnight Coach

Get pumped – you’re in Cairo! Touch down and meet us at the airport for your transfer to Aswan. En route, you’ll have plenty of time to get to know your new trip mates. Kick back and get comfy, ‘cos tomorrow the adventure begins!

  Hotel:  None

Aswan

Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Lord Byron... they've all done it. Now it's your turn! Go low tech with a ride on a felucca sailboat down the Nile and get comfy on the cushion-strewn deck. Try not to doze off, though - we've got a traditional Nubian village to get to! Here you can pick up handmade souvenirs, stroll past pretty multicoloured houses and get up close and personal with Aswan's unique culture. If you fancy it, you can even opt in to take a camel ride (talk about life goals) or chow down on an authentic Nubian dinner. Top tip: try the ful.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

Aswan

Roll out of bed and prepare to feel like a small fry as you gaze up at the four colossal statues of Ramses II at Abu Simbel (you’ll want to make sure there’s space in your camera roll for this one). The afternoon will be yours to spend sipping on a cool beverage by the pool or exploring the city’s colourful bazaars before we get back together for a visit to a local ahwa (that’s ‘coffee shop’ to you and me).

   Meals:   Breakfast, Dinner

  Hotel:  None

Aswan to Luxor

Today it’s time for a well-earned touch of Luxor – also known as ‘the world’s greatest open-air museum’. Once the capital of ancient Egypt, it’s now a history-laden landscape of souks and temples. Your challenge today is to see as much of it as possible. And… go! We’ll kick things off with tours of Karnak Temple (the largest religious building ever made) and Luxor Temple, one of the best preserved of all of Egypt’s ancient monuments. All together now: wowwww.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

Luxor to Cairo via Overnight Coach

Next up: the Valley of the Kings (aka the place everyone in ancient Egypt was ‘dying’ to get into). Expect tombs, and lots of them – plus a whole bunch of amazingly vibrant wall art that’s been waiting for you to come visit it for thousands of years. And did we mention that you’ll have a super knowledgeable Egyptologist as your guide? Listen up and learn the stories of the pharaohs as you pass from tomb to tomb. Tonight, it’s back on the road again as we journey back to Cairo.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

Cairo

Back in Cairo, we’ll hit up the Egyptian Museum – where we’ll check out King Tutankhamun’s treasure chest. Then: get some perspective at the base of the 138 m Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx. Trust us, even your goosebumps will get goosebumps! To toast your final night with your fellow Topdeckers, why not take an optional Nile dinner cruise? Fancy.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

The trip ends here (well, breakfast first), but you can stick around if you want to. Pop on that fedora and keep on exploring, Indy!
