Tour Itinerary

If you’ve dreamed of standing at the foot of the great pyramids, now is the time to escape to Egypt. Peruse the treasures of King Tutankhamun in Cairo, and answer the riddle of the Sphinx at the Great Pyramids of Giza. Fly to Luxor and embark on a Nile River cruise. You’ll visit the Karnak and Luxor Temples, and join in guided sightseeing at the Valley of the Kings and Queens on the Nile’s West Bank—site of noble crypts where the pharaohs rest in splendor in the cliff sides. Visit the Temple of Horus with its menacing black stone falcon statue, built 2,000 years ago during the age of Cleopatra. You’ll see fascinating sights before your Nile River cruise is complete, including a bluff-top temple to worship crocodile and falcon gods, the unfinished obelisk of the granite quarries of Aswan, and the Temple of Isis recovered from the submerged island of Philae. Take an excursion on a Felucca sailboat for a view of Kitchener’s Island and the mausoleum of Aga Khan. Fly back to Cairo and conclude your vacation with a farewell dinner to celebrate your guided tour of Egypt.

This was an experience of a lifetime. Be advised it is a tour, not a vacation, so if you want to just laze about, this is not for you. However, if you want to see the most and best of Egypt, this is it! It is jampacked with scheduled and optional tours that enhance your Egyptian experience and should not be missed. I loved every minute of this immersion into Egypt.

The tour was overall a very good value for the money paid. Hotels in Cairo and Aswan were excellent with rooms with great views and food in the hotels was good. Cruise ship on the Nile was very old with average rooms. However, food on the ship was good, staff very nice and helpful. Overall the tour was good value and we enjoyed the tour. Tour however was physically quite strenuous as it involved walking considerable distances on uneven terrain.

Fantastic trip. One of the best trips I ever took.
