Itinerary

Cairo

Saturday. Welcome to Egypt. Upon arrival at Cairo airport you’ll be met and transferred to our start hotel. Spend the rest of the day either relaxing after your journey or exploring Egypt’s bustling capital.

Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara & Khan el-Khalili Market

After breakfast our first stop is the Giza Plateau to visit one of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World. The legendary Pyramids of Giza were constructed over 4,500 years ago to protect the mummies and treasures of pharaohs. Of the three pyramids, Cheops is the largest and it’s thought that it would have taken 100,000 workers over 20 years to build. If you’re looking for a real Arabian experience, here you also have the option of a camel ride across the sands of Giza. 

Following the pyramids and marveling at the iconic Sphinx, we take a visit to the necropolis of Saqqara to see Zhoser’s step pyramid. Dating back to around 2,700 BC, this is the world’s earliest stone monument. Constructed by Imhotep, the pharaoh’s chief architect, this structure became the template that all future pyramids were based on. We complete our day souvenir shopping at the bustling Khan el-Khalili bazaar.

Egyptian Museum

Cairo - Luxor. This morning we head to the Egyptian Museum which houses the world’s largest collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts. Amongst the incredible array of antiquities, we’ll see the golden treasures of King Tutankhamun including his famous funerary mask. We then board our coach to travel the long 9-hour journey to Luxor in the south.

Valley of the Kings

Luxor - Aswan. Our first stop this morning is Luxor’s West Bank where we see the Colossi of Memnon, which are two imposing 18-metre-high statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, and explore the incredible tomb strewn Valley of the Kings and the colonnaded Temple of Hatshepsut. Surrounded by rugged limestone cliffs, this dazzling temple rises out of the desert plain in a series of terraces. 

The Valley of the Kings was the site for royal burials for centuries and is studded with elaborate tombs including that of the famous King Tutankhamun. These tombs housed the mummies of mighty pharaohs as they awaited passage into the afterlife. After exploring, we spend the remainder of the afternoon continuing our journey south to Aswan. 

Philae Temple, Felucca sailing & Optional Abu

Aswan - Nile felucca cruise. Today there is an optional early morning excursion to the magnificent temple of Abu Simbel, the entrance of which is guarded by four colossal statues of King Ramses II. We then embark on a short boat ride to Agilika Island where we enjoy a guided tour of the stunning Philae Temple, which was dedicated to the goddess Isis. 

In the afternoon we board our traditional felucca for a 2-night journey along Africa’s longest river. Feluccas are sailboats that have plied the River Nile since ancient times. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in the sun, then at night sleep under the stars on the felucca deck.

Felucca Sailing

Nile Felucca Sailing - Kom Ombo. Today we enjoy a full day sailing the Nile, soaking up the sunshine and scenery. Take a refreshing swim if you like and wave at the locals as we glide by. We then enjoy another magical night on deck under the blanket of stars.

Kom Ombo Temple

Kom Ombo - Luxor. Today we disembark at Kom Ombo to explore the riverside temple which honours the ancient Egyptian crocodile god Sobek. We then journey back to Luxor. This evening we take an optional guided night tour of the extraordinary Luxor Temple. Illuminated by hundreds of lights, the temple is at its most spectacular at this time.

Luxor

We spend our final morning enjoying a guided tour of the vast Temple of Karnak. The oldest buildings of this religious complex date back around 4,000 years and today it is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Covering an area of more than 100 hectares, the complex is larger than some ancient cities. 

We end our tour with an included transfer to Luxor Airport. To make sure you have time to visit Karnak Temple please book your flight to depart after 2pm. Alternatively, we can book post tour accommodation if you’d like to extend your stay.
