As you transfer to your hotel for a day at leisure, you’ll feel the intoxicating buzz of this lively city – the perfect introduction to an unforgettable opportunity to learn about Egypt’s ancient past and exciting present. You may choose to relax after your trip, or experience the energy of Cairo for yourself at the Khan El-Khalili souk where the sounds and smells are almost overwhelming.Accommodation: Ramses Hilton
  2. Day 2
    Admire the Wonders of Giza
    Immerse yourself in a history that spans millennia during a full-day excursion to the old kingdom of Egypt. See the Colossus of Ramses II and the Alabaster Sphinx at Memphis. Visit the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, then marvel at the Great Pyramid of Giza and the mighty Sphinx. This evening, watch as the walls of these feats of man are lit up in a dazzling sound and light show.
    Meals:   Breakfast
  3. Day 3
    Fly to Luxor and Embark on Your Nile Cruise
    We fly to Luxor this morning and embark on a guided tour of the Karnak Temple Complex, before boarding our cruise in time for lunch. Later this afternoon, marvel at Luxor's Temple and visit Luxor Museum to see an astounding collection of archaeological treasures, including items from Tutankhamun’s tomb.Accommodation: Nile Cruise
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner
  4. Day 4
    Explore Ancient Dendera
    Pay tribute to the Goddess Hathor at Dendera Temple, a soaring structure built around 330 BC. Beautifully preserved and elaborate in its design, every inch of this impressive sand-coloured structure is mesmerising and you’ll see many of its halls, shrines and unique features such as the sun dial and replica Dendera zodiac, tracing the images of Taurus and Libra. You’ll learn about Dendera’s role as one of the major capitals of ancient Upper Egypt before returning to Luxor for the night.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner
  5. Day 5
    Journey to Aswan
    Today, we travel to Aswan, which for centuries held the important strategic role of being Egypt’s southern frontier and gateway to the rest of Africa. Today it is a tranquil, modern city, most known for its High Dam, Nubian villages and Philae Temple, built to honour Egyptian goddess Isis. We arrive just in time for dinner, watching the buzz of the city from the comfort of our boat as day turns to dusk and another wonderful day sailing along the Nile comes to a close.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner
  6. Day 6
    The High Dam and More in Aswan
    On your sightseeing visit to Aswan, you’ll see first-hand how the ancient Egyptians could not have chosen a more stunning place to honour the goddess of love and you’ll learn how the Temple of Isis on Philae Island was very nearly lost underwater when the Aswan Dam was built in the 1960s. Beyond the incredible beauty and tranquillity of this structure, you’ll hear how Isis earned the title ‘Mother of God’ before your visit to the Unfinished Obelisk, which lies semi-carved from the solid bedrock and remains as a testament to Aswan’s heritage as the centre for stone quarries in ancient Egypt. Our final stop today is a visit to the High Dam, the world’s largest embankment dam which took 11 years to build and ended the cycle of flood and drought along the Nile River.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner

Later, you’ll set sail in a traditional felucca around the Botanical Gardens on Kitchener's Island, given to Lord Horacio Kitchener who transformed the island into a haven for rare exotic birds and unusual plants.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner

    Off to Ancient Kom-Ombo
    We visit the roofless Temple of Kom-Ombo, a highlight on our trip along the Nile, where we’ll learn how the temple was built to honour two gods – Horus the Elder and Sobek. The Temple has a perfectly symmetrical design, the two sides a mirror of each other with one side dedicated to the crocodile god, the other to the falcon god. You’ll learn all about the mythical link the two gods shared and why the Nile crocodile, which gathered in great numbers at this bend in the Nile, were of such importance to the ancient Egyptian priests.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner
  9. Day 9
    Sail to Stunning Luxor

Every moment spent exploring the Valley of the Kings will leave you enthralled as you trace its many treasures, from the tomb of Tutankhamun to the temple complexes of Karnak and Luxor.

Health and Safety Protocols for Trafalgar Tours

Trafalgar has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

You can travel with Trafalgar and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.

In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Trafalgar is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Trafalgar will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Trafalgar have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

Trafalgar is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Trafalgar does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Trafalgar only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.

Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Trafalgar is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Questions & Answers

Question: Can we get inside the Giza Pyramid?

While this tour does view the Pyramids at Giza it does not go inside any of them. You can go inside the Pyramids at an additional cost and if there is time permitting. The best way to to do this would be to purchase an extra day at the start or end of your tour so you can participate in an optional excursion to the inside of the Pyramids at Giza.

Question: When you visit the Valley of the Kings, do you actually go into any of the tombs?

On Day 10 you explore the fascinating complex of mortuary temples and tombs, including Queen Hatshepsut's Temple, the Colossi of Memnon and the Valley of the Kings.

Question: what type of boat is used for Nile cruise?

The accommodations listed on the itinerary are: Nile Cruise MS Miriam, MS Medea or MS La Traviata or a boat that is similar. For example, the MS Miriam is 72 meters, has 60 cabins with in suite, full sized bathrooms, with TV, AC, and common appointments. There is a tastefully furnished restaurant and full bar service onboard. The top deck has fitness equipment and pool.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Overall an awesome experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. The selection of sites was thoughtfully put together. I did not like the fact that while on the boat the WiFi signal was not av at available in my room and very weak in designated parts of the boat. The room was often too cold and I learned late in the cruise that the boat was not outfitted with heat.

This trip exceeded my expectations! Everyone was professional and knowledgeable. The guides were wonderful and helpful! The only negative comment I would have about traveling to Egypt was that it was not handicapped accessible. While I expected the monuments to be a challenge, I did not expect the boat ( ship) to only have stairs, and it was 4 flights to get from our cabin to dinner. But the wonderful staff and food on the ship compensated for the difficulty going up and down! It was wonderfully orchestrated from the moment we arrived until we left...A trip of a lifetime!

my only issue was the lack of support for child accommodations and pricing before the trip but once at the destinations they were fully accommodating

Traflager- All expected expenses were not disclosed prior to trip. Tipping became tedious and bottled water was not provided on the river boat even though you could not drink the water onboard. The hotels in Cairo were Not acceptable - mold & mildew.

Boat and rooms were very old and food was same exact same dishes all three meals everyday and all days on boat all 11 days...

The trip was amazing from start to finish!

Traffalgar exceeded above and beyand my expectation.
