Experience the real Egypt
Egypt Tour | 13 Days - Starting Cairo | 4 Nov 2024 & 3 Nov 2025
Discover the timeless wonders of Egypt, where the ancient civilization and modern marvels come alive along the great Nile River. This journey uncovers Egypt’s rich history, from the temples and tombs of Pharaohs to contemporary feats like the Suez Canal and the Aswan High Dam, and honours the losses of WWll at the El Alamein War Cemetery.
Starting in Cairo visit the highlights - think the Egyptian Museum, the magnificent Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx, the vibrant Khan al-Khalili Bazaar and Ibn Tulun Mosque.
Take an overnight sleeper train to Luxor, where Karnak Temple and the tombs in the Valley of the Kings await. Embark on a luxury 4-night cruise to Aswan, with stops at the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo and overnight in a Nubian Village. In Aswan discover the Philae Temples and the High Dam, sail on a felucca, and then fly to witness the grandeur of Abu Simbel.
Return to Cairo, and drive to Ismailia to marvel at the Suez Canal. Explore Alexandria’s stunning Library, ancient catacombs, and old fort. The journey includes a visit to the WWll cemetery in El Alamein and a glimpse of the fertile Nile Delta on this unforgettable Egyptian odyssey.
