Tour description

Egypt’s landscape of vast trackless deserts, beautiful mountain scenery and beautiful marine life in the Red Sea, conceals the fertile Nile Valley, known throughout the world for its incredible collection of ancient pyramids, temples and tombs. This tour combines time in Cairo and Luxor visiting these sites with a few days by the Red Sea to give you a taste of everything Egypt has to offer.

The Sphinx in Gisa, EgyptStarting in Cairo we tour the Gisa Plateaux to see the 3 huge pyramids and sphinx there. These awesome ancient monuments have withstood the tests of time, giving us a fascinating and unique glimpse into the past. We also visit the Egyptian Museum, home to a vast collection of artefacts, including the famous Tutankhamun display.

From Cairo we travel by overnight sleeper train through the Nile Valley to Luxor and its spectacular collection of temples and tombs. On the east bank we visit the colossal and well preserved temples of Karnak and Luxor. On the west bank of the Nile we take time to explore the Valley of the Kings, Queen Hatchepsut & Medinat Habu temples, and learn much more about ancient Egyptian history.

Statue at Karnak templeFrom 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.

Red Sea coral reefs and fish. Finally we head back to Cairo where we have a little time for some last minute shopping and sightseeing before the tour ends.

Customer feedback

"Thanks for organising such a great trip for us! We all had an amazing time and it really opened our eyes to the country, both ancient and modern. Our guide, Emad Hussain was wonderful – very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and willing to put up with four archaeologists (including one Egyptologist) for the 12 days. I’m just downloading my 1200-odd photos now..."
