Itinerary

  • Day 1, Cairo
    Sunday. Welcome to Egypt! On arrival at the airport you'll be transferred to our hotel to spend the rest of today at leisure. If arriving early, you may wish to join our Backstreets of Cairo tour, which visits lesser-known highlights of the capital, including the cave church of St Simon and Tahrir Square.

    You may also wish to extend your tour with an [[Alexandria Day Trip|122837]] on the Saturday. We can arrange pre-tour accommodation on request.
    No meals included.
    Day 2, Pyramids of Giza
    Discover Egypt's most famous attraction today as we visit the Pyramids of Giza and the iconic Sphinx. Explore these ancient tombs and there's also the opportunity to ride a camel at the legendary site. Continue to Saqqara necropolis to see the ancient stepped Pyramid of Zhoser. This monument is even older than the Giza Pyramids and is surrounded by countless tombs and burial sites.
    1 breakfast, no lunch, no dinner included.
    Day 3, Cairo
    Cairo - Luxor. Today we'll explore the Grand Egyptian Museum. Located only 2km from the Pyramids, this incredible new museum is home to a vast number of artefacts from across ancient Egyptian history. Some of these have never been on public display before and others have been painstakingly restored by experts. There is a large Tutankhamun exhibition and the museum makes use of modern technology, including virtual reality.

    After our guided tour we head over to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization to visit the fascinating Royal Mummies' Hall, where the mummies of ancient Egyptian kings and queens are on now display. Strolling through this incredible hall we'll see 20 mummies, including Ramses II and Queen Hatshepsut. Some of these mummies are so well preserved that they still have thick locks of hair and visible finger nails! Then we return to our hotel where there's time to relax by the pool and have dinner before we board the overnight train to Luxor this evening.

    Please Note: the Grand Egyptian Museum is scheduled to open in late 2024, though an official opening date has yet to be released. If travelling prior to the opening of the new facility we'll visit the Egyptian Museum instead.
    1 breakfast, no lunch, no dinner included.
    Day 4, Luxor
    We arrive in Luxor this morning and drive to Dendera, one of Egypt's best-preserved temple complexes. Enjoy a guided tour of this ancient site, including the magnificent Temple of Hathor.

    1 breakfast, no lunch, no dinner included.
    Day 5, Luxor
    Explore the lavishly decorated tombs of famous pharaohs this morning as we visit the Valley of the Kings. Many important pharaohs were buried here including Ramses II and of course, Tutankhamun. Continue to the mortuary temple of Hatshepsut - the second female pharaoh. The final stop of the morning is at the Colossi of Memnon. These two giant statues of King Amenhotep III are all that remains of what was once the largest temple in the world.

    After time to relax by the hotel pool our busy day of sightseeing continues this afternoon as we discover the spectacular Karnak Temple. This vast complex took over 1,500 years to complete and more than 30 pharaohs contributed to it.

After the tour you may wish to climb the steep steps to the Monastery for amazing panoramic views, or haggle for a horse and chariot ride.
