Itinerary

  • Day 1:
  • Arrive in Cairo - Transfer to hotel

We greet you at Cairo airport and transfer you to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to settle into your 4-star hotel and relax after your journey.

  • Day 2:
  • Cairo - Pyramids & Museum tour, camel ride, fly to Aswan

We start today's tour with a bang, with a visit to the immense Pyramids & Sphinx at Gisa. We also include a camel ride at the pyramids, fun for all the family, and a great photo opportunity as well. We then head into the centre of town and visit the Egyptian Museum with its collection of mummies, and of course the familiar and famous Tutankhamun exhibit with the original golden mask on display. This evening we take an overnight sleeper train from Cairo to Aswan (approx. 12 hours, private twin cabins)

  • Day 3:
  • Aswan - Philae temple, school visit

The River Nile is at its most picturesque here in Aswan and we take advantage of this with a tour to the beautiful island temple of Philae by boat. During term times we'll also visit a local school where we arrange a fun and informal joint English/Arabic language class with children of a similar age to your group. A Nubian meal is also included today.

  • Day 4:
  • Aswan - Abu Simbel option, start felucca cruise

There is the option very early this morning for a tour to the temples to Ramses II at Abu Simbel, which have a fascinating story as they were completely dismantled and rebuilt piece by piece to escape the rising waters of Lake Nasser. If you don't do Abu Simbel, the morning is free to explore Aswan's busy and exotic bazaar, or relax in the hotel before we board our felucca sailboat for a few hours sailing on the Nile. We have a fun night's sleep on the deck of the boat and are looked after well by our Nubian crew (toilets and showers are available on a support boat that will join up with us from time to time, and an option to upgrade to a luxury Nile cruise boat is also available).

  • Day 5:
  • Felucca sailboat cruise. Drive to Luxor

After breakfast, we enjoy some more sailing on the Nile today before driving to Luxor where we check into our 4/5 star hotel by the Nile.The rest of the afternoon is free. 

  • Day 6:
  • Luxor - West bank tour.

There is the option today of a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the west bank of the Nile. Today's tour takes in the West bank of the Nile, visiting the Pharaonic tombs in the Valley of the Kings, and the unique temple to Queen Hatchepsut where we learn about her fascinating story. The afternoon is free to relax in the hotel, explore Luxor town, take another felucca trip on the Nile to Banana island, or perhaps visit the Mummification museum.

  • Day 7:
  • Luxor - Karnak temple. Free time

We tour one of Egypt's biggest and most impressive sites today, Karnak temple, with its huge temples, obelisks, statues and columned halls. The afternoon is free in Luxor before we head to the station to catch the sleeper train back to Cairo (approx. 9 hours). You can upgrade one or both train journeys to internal flights if you prefer.

  • Day 8:
  • Fly to Cairo - City tour

After arriving back in Cairo and checking into our hotel, we have a short tour to explore the mosque and museum at the Citadel overlooking the city, and to wander around and possibly do some haggling and souvenir shopping in the busy Khan-el-Khalili bazaar. We'll visit a traditional local Koshari shop for a snack lunch and in the evening we include a farewell dinner to say goodbye to your Egyptologist guide and fellow travellers.
