Tour Itinerary

Lovers of myth and mystery will be enchanted by the sites encountered on this journey. Many of Egypt’s cities and towns developed along the Nile, so a luxurious cruise onboard the River Tosca is like a window into the heart and soul of this amazing country.

Day 1 - Cairo at leisure.
Your complimentary, private transfer takes you to your local departure airport. Welcome to the timeless land of the pharaohs. On arrival in Cairo, you will be met and transferred to your hotel.

Accommodation: Mena House Hotel (Pyramid View), Cairo.

Day 2 - Cairo sightseeing.
In the morning, meet your Travelling Concierge, a knowledgeable Egyptologist, and begin your discovery of this timeless land. Start a visit to the magnificent Pyramids of Giza, where you venture inside and visit the enigmatic Sphinx. Afterwards, visit the Egyptian Museum, to witness the priceless treasures recovered from the Tomb of Tutankhamun. Later, drive to the Pyramids to witness the magical Sound & Light Show, an unforgettable introduction to the world of ancient Egypt.(Breakfast)

Day 3 - Fly to Aswan to join your cruise.
Board your plane for a morning flight across the desert to Aswan. Visit the Aswan High Dam and the granite quarries, where one of Queen Hatshepsut's obelisks lies abandoned in the bedrock. Then cross the Nile by motorboat to the well-preserved Philae temple complex, moved stone-by-stone to its current location following the construction of the High Dam. Next, stretch out on a traditional Nile felucca for a peaceful ride around Kitchener’s Island. In the late afternoon, join the likes of Winston Churchill and Agatha Christie before you, with a colonial-style high tea on the terrace of the Old Cataract Hotel. Once on your stylish and spacious cruiser, enjoy a Highlight Dinner accompanied by a Nubian folklore show and live music.(Breakfast / Lunch / Afternoon Tea / Dinner with Wine)

In the nearby Valley of the Kings, the Egyptian kings planned to meet their gods in the afterlife. Visit some of their tombs, then continue to the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the rare female pharaohs. Next, visit a family home and witness the making of authentic Egyptian sun bread.
