Itinerary / more information

  • Day 1 - Cairo Welcome to Cairo and the beginning of your Egyptian adventure. Arrive at the airport where our representative will meet your family before you’re transferred to the hotel to spend tonight at leisure in Egypt’s capital.
  • Day 2 - Cairo This morning enjoy a guided tour of the Egyptian Museum and discover treasures including the famous gold burial mask of King Tutankhamun. For a small fee you can enter the Royal Mummy Room and discover the incredibly preserved mummies of pharaohs including Ramses II, who still has hair on his head. Later, discover the beautiful Citadel of Saladin - a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and browse the vibrant Khan el-Khalili bazaar where you can shop for souvenirs before we return to the hotel.
  • Day 3 - Pyramids of Giza Cairo - Aswan. Visit Egypt’s most iconic attraction today as we discover the legendary Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx at the Giza Plateau. Sole survivors of the ancient Greek-listed Seven Wonders of the World, they were constructed from over 2.5million limestone blocks, taking more than 20 years to build. We enjoy a guided tour of the site and there is also the opportunity to enter one of the pyramids itself. Spend the afternoon exploring Cairo at leisure or relaxing by the hotel pool with your family, before we take the comfortable overnight sleeper train to Aswan this evening.
  • Day 4 - Aswan On arrival in Aswan we visit the scenic Philae Temple, on Agilika Island in the Nile, followed by a stop at a perfume oil emporium. We then check-in to the hotel, where the afternoon is at leisure. Perhaps take a stroll along the riverside corniche, visit the Aswan Botanical Gardens or enjoy an afternoon by the pool. This evening, we’ll visit the bustling Aswan market and enjoy the smells of herbs and spices being sold by the local merchants.
  • Day 5 - Aswan Enjoy a traditional felucca ride today as we sail on the mighty Nile to Elephantine Island. During our guided walk of the island we discover many archaeological sites and pay a visit to a local school (if open) before enjoying lunch and some family time back on board. This afternoon is free for you to spend at leisure or there is an optional excursion to Aswan's Nubian Museum. The museum is home to more than 3,000 artefacts and scale models from across Egyptian ancient history.
  • Day 6 - Aswan Aswan – Luxor. Today begins with a motorboat ride across the Nile to the West Bank. Here we enjoy an exciting camel ride across rolling sand dunes to the 7th century St Simeon's Monastery. Later today we drive to ancient Luxor, stopping en route at the famous double temple of Kom Ombo. This perfectly symmetrical temple was dedicated to both the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Horus.
  • Day 7 - Luxor This morning we explore the famous Valley of the Kings on Luxor's West Bank, where mighty pharaohs including Tutankhamun were laid to rest. Explore two of the ancient tombs and discover the beautiful carvings and hieroglyphs on the walls to get a sense of the power and importance of these ancient kings. Later, we’ll visit the beautiful Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and see the towering Colossi of Memnon, two giant statues of the Pharaoh Amenhotep III.

    The adventure for today doesn’t end there - this afternoon we visit the gigantic Karnak Temple, which took around 1,500 years to complete. See the Avenue of Sphinxes and gaze at the enormous columns and statues which make up this complex site. The evening is free to relax with your family at leisure, or you may wish to join our optional tour of Luxor Temple, brilliantly illuminated by hundreds of lights at night.
  • Day 8 - Hurghada Luxor - Hurghada. Say goodbye to Luxor today as we drive to the popular resort of Hurghada, on the shore of the Red Sea. Enjoy a short orientation walk before spending the rest of today relaxing on the beach with your family.
