About This Trip

Ready to explore every facet of Egypts thrilling history? On this hand-crafted tour, we have taken care to include every aspect of the archeological finds, the temples, the statues and the pyramids that make ancient Egypt one of the most intriguing spectacles in the world. Sail, fly and drive with us through 5,000 years of fascinating history.  

 

You will start off the trip in Cairo, exploring the wonder of the great pyramids and majestic sphinx before visiting arguably the greatest museum in the world. We then fly you down to Luxor to explore Karnak before boarding your five-star, four-night Nile cruise. 

 

While on-board you will visit the Valley of the Kings, Kom Ombo and Aswan where you will access the Temple of Isis by small motorboats. After spending time on the majestic Nile, both in your cruiser and on local felucca boats, you will get back on dry land with visits to Abu Simbel, Cairo and Alexandria, all rich with incredibly preserved history.  

 

Every step of the way you will be accompanied by an expert Egyptologist, who will bring the stories of these wonderful locations to life, painting the picture of a time where Egypt’s might was all-encompassing.

highlights

There is so much to Egypt’s history, so many uncovered sites that are so immaculately preserved that it is difficult to fit them all into one trip, but we have done it! We poured over the maps and linked everything up in a way that allows you to spend time wandering around these ancient sites of incredible beauty while an expert guide lets you know everything about them. 

 

We wanted to stitch several of these magical experiences together from the Nile, the lifeblood of the country where life flourishes on its thriving banks. We found the perfect cruiser to take you up the world’s most famous river, giving you time to relax on board and watch Egypt slip by, but also reaching some of the best and lesser-known temples and sites in the country. This is an immersive experience, one that totally transports you back to a time that could not be more different to our own, but packed with fascinating stories that will live long in the memory.
