Grand Egyptian Adventure

13days

Tour description

Throughout history Egypt’s vast array of breathtaking monuments has proved an irresistible draw to travellers from all over the world. Combined with stunning beaches and a warm and friendly people, Egypt is a country you cannot afford to miss. Therefore, let us take you on a journey back in time to some of the most amazing sites of the ancient world, and leave you with memories you will treasure for a lifetime.

The Great Pyramids in Gisa, Egypt

Note: This tour is currently being adjusted to visit the Red Sea resort of Hurghada instead of travelling through the Sinai Peninsular to Dahab. 

We begin in Cairo where we take time to visit possibly the most famous of ancient monuments, the Pyramids and Sphinx at Gisa, as well as the Tutankhamum and many other exhibits in the Egyptian Museum. 

Felucca on the Nile, EgyptNext we head for Aswan and the peaceful beauty of the Nile. Here you will find lush green islands and traditional felucca sailboats set amid cascading rapids. We visit the tranquil island Temple of Philae and the immense High Dam, as well an option to tour the amazing temples of Ramses II at Abu Simbel before boarding feluccas to drift lazily down the Nile. An option is available to upgrade to a luxury Dahabiya or Nile Cruise in place of the felucca if you wish. We stop at the Temples of Komombo and Edfu en-route to Luxor where we have plenty of time to investigate the wealth of monumental architecture on offer.

On the east bank we take time to see the remarkable Temples of Karnak and Luxor, a tribute to the greatness of King Ramses II. On the west bank, we visit the Valley of the Kings, where the ancient Pharaohs built elaborate burial complexes and temples to aid them on their journey to the afterlife. Other stops include the colourful Medinat Habu temple, Queen Hatchepsut's temple, and the Colossi of Memnon.

Diving in the Red Sea, EgyptFrom Luxor we say farewell to the Nile Valley and head to the Red Sea and the resort of Hurghada. With golden sandy beaches, beautiful coral reefs and an interesting old town and marina, Hurghada provides a great place to relax and enjoy the next few days of your tour. There are various snorkelling and scuba-diving boat trips available as well as other water sports, quad biking trips and other activities.

Finally we return to Cairo to finish the tour and fly home.

Note - our Egypt & Jordan Adventure tour shortens the time by the Red Sea on this tour and heads on into Jordan giving a full tour through the country before finishing in Amman.
