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

Land in Cairo

Welcome to Cairo - your Egyptian adventure begins! There's nothing specific planned for you today. So you're free to explore Cairo!

Giza Pyramids & pharoahs

Today, we'll stand before ancient wonders. And we'll step back in time. You'll spend the morning exploring the legendary Giza Plateau: home of the Great Pyramids and the mighty Sphinx. Later, we'll move on to tomb-strewn Saqqara and visit the age-old Djoser step pyramid. There's also time to browse Cairo's bustling Khan el Khalili bazaar.

The Egyptian Museum, Cairo

Cairo - Luxor. Your morning will be spent in the Egyptian Museum. Here, you'll discover the treasures and antiquities of this great civilisation - and the prized jewels of King Tutankhamun himself. The rest of the day will then be spent travelling by bus south to Luxor.

Aswan & the Valley of the Kings

Luxor - Aswan. Today, we'll cross to the west bank of the Nile - home to the mighty Colossi of Memnon, the great Valley of the Kings, and the majestic Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Here, you'll get a true taste of ancient Egyptian extravagance and luxury. This afternoon, we'll continue south - all the way to Aswan.

The Temple of Philae & optional Abu Simbel

Today you have the opportunity to visit the awe-inspiring temple of King Ramses II - Abu Simbel. One of the most breathtaking monuments in all of ancient Egypt. This tour is optional - but it isn't one to miss! This afternoon, we'll sail across to Agilika Island and the stunning Temple of Philae.

Cross to Elephantine Island

The best way to see the River Nile? By traditional felucca, of course! Sit back and enjoy the rolling view as we sail to Elephantine Island. Here, you'll see the Nubian side to the city of Luxor, a collection of archaeological gems, and an ancient Nilometer.

The temples of Kom Ombo & Luxor

Aswan - Kom Ombo - Luxor. Bid farewell to Aswan; today we start the journey back up north to Luxor. Along the way, we'll stop at the striking Nile-side Kom Ombo; a distinct temple decorated in honour of two ancient gods. By evening, we'll arrive in Luxor. Just in time for an optional night tour of the Temple of Luxor!

Karnak Temple

Luxor - Cairo. Today, we'll visit the ancient wonder of Karnak - its age-old temples, towering columns, and decadent chapels. With carvings and and monuments at every turn, Karnak captivates the spirit and culture of ancient Egypt. And it transports you there, too.

Return to Cairo

Sunday. Today marks the end of our adventure. You'll be transferred to the airport in time for your flight. So make the most of your last moments in Egypt... for now, anyway! Flights departing Cairo should not be booked before 2pm.
