We will arrange for you to share accommodation with another traveller of the same gender and if we can not match you up we will provide a single room at no extra charge.
If you prefer not to share a single supplement is payable to guarantee your own room.
Please refer to our website for the additional cost.
Hotels - We use 4 star (Egypt rating system) hotel accommodation in the cities, all twin share with private facilities.
Please do not expect the hotels to be of a western 4 star standard.
Some hotels are clearly 3-4 star, and some are closer to 2-3 star, however they are chosen for their position, cleanliness and comfort.
Felucca cruise - this is a traditional and basic sea-craft with broad canvas sails.
The craft is mainly reliant on wind power, and so itineraries are subject to change according to the winds.
The felucca carries 2 to 10 people, and the main deck is strewn with soft cushions and rugs, and covered by a canopy that offers shade and protection from the sun.
You will need to bring your own sleeping bag (not provided) to sleep on the mattresses on the main deck.
The main deck area has a low roof which means that you cannot stand up fully, and moving from one side of the boat to the other is a hands and knees crawl or low hunched walk.
Meals are taken in the centre of the main deck area sitting down with no back rests.
There is a communal shower/toilet on board with no shower curtain or separate shower stall - we suggest bringing a wash cloth and using the sink as a courtesy to your fellow passengers.
Sleeper train - Compartments comprise two-bed sleepers: the two seats convert to a lower bunk bed, and an upper bunk bed folds down, with clean linen, pillows and blankets; plus air conditioning and a small basin with running water.
There are shared toilets in each carriage.
Airline-style dinners and breakfasts are served in the compartments.
Beverages can be purchased on board at additional cost from the steward or in the club lounge carriage.
Group Size: 2 - 10.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Join Cairo Today is an arrival day. You will be met at the airport (if arriving on Day 1 only) and transferred to the group hotel for overnight accommodation. A group briefing will be held in the afternoon. The remainder of the day is at leisure. Overnight hotel in Cairo.
  • Day 2 - Visit the Great Pyramids, overnight sleeper train to Luxor Before appreciating the best preserved pyramids at Giza, this morning we visit the Step Pyramid at Saqqara which shows the style of construction used to build them. The Step Pyramid was built by the Pharaoh’s chief architect, Imhotep, in 27BC and was at that time the largest stone construction ever built. Following our visit to Saqqara, we travel to the nearby old capital of Memphis. Little remains of the once grand and thriving metropolis, except a small museum and garden. We spend time visiting the gardens where statues of Ramses II can be viewed. We also visit the Bent Pyramid of Dahshur, which shows the transition from building step-sided pyramids to smooth-sided pyramids. The Great Pyramids of Egypt set on a plateau in the Arabian Desert, are one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the reason for which becomes evident as we first set our eyes on these awesome monuments. We spend the morning exploring the main sites. We will enter the Kings Chamber and marvel at the sophisticated construction of this ancient site. We include a visit to the Solar Barque Museum, where the remains of a wooden boat, perhaps used in the funeral procession for a Pharaoh, can be seen. Time is spent appreciating the majestic Sphinx and wondering at the mystery that surrounds this enormous structure. Afterwards we return to Cairo, and transfer to the railway station to catch the overnight sleeper train to Luxor.
  • Day 3 - Arrive Luxor, sightseeing We arrive into Luxor this morning. Luxor is located on the banks of the Nile, and is built on the site of Thebes, the former capital of Egypt which dates back 4000 years. In the centre of the town is the Luxor Temple, and to the north Karnak and the Temple of Amun. This morning we visit these impressive temples which are well preserved and contain numerous columns, obelisks and in the temple of Karnak, an avenue of ram-headed sphinxes. The imprint of the various Pharaohs, including Tuthmosis III, Hatshepsut, Tutankhamun and Ramses II is evident. Overnight hotel in Luxor.
  • Day 4 - Visit Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut Today we cross over to the west bank of the Nile visiting the Valley of the Kings, the necropolis for the ancient city of Thebes. The rock-hewn tombs are found in an arid valley and from the exterior it is hard to imagine the riches which once lay within. Ironically the most recent discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922 by Howard Carter, the contents of which are now in the Cairo Museum, is the least decorated. The tombs of Ramses I, III, IV, IX, Seti II and Tuthmosis III and IV are all richly decorated with paintings of goddesses and the stories from the Book of Day and Night. We will have the opportunity to visit a few of these tombs depending which ones are open to the public. The tombs are reached through a series of ornately painted underground corridors and ante chambers until these open out to the burial chamber where the sarcophagus is found. There will also be time to visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, the first woman to reign as a king. In paintings and reliefs she was depicted as a man. Overnight hotel in Luxor.
  • Day 5 - Drive to Edfu, board felucca cruise, visit temples Early morning drive to Edfu to visit the temple of Horus, which is one of the largest and best preserved shrines in Egypt. Then we board our felucca boat to spend the next two days sailing on the Nile, allowing us to relax and take in the view while we witness first hand the rural existence alongside this life-giving river. Our relaxation time is interspersed with visits to the temples of Kom Ombo, enjoying the fresh cooked meals prepared onboard by your crew, and swimming in the Nile River.
  • Day 7 - Arrive Aswan, sightseeing We arrive today in the bustling town of Aswan. Set primarily on the East Bank of the Nile, it is the most southern city in Egypt and is said to be the gateway to Africa. Ancient trade routes once crossed over in this town and the Sharia as-Souq today retains all of the activity and colour of the great trading days. We visit the High Dam, which at the time it was completed (1902) was the largest of its kind in the world. This afternoon we will visit the unfinished Obelisk and the Temple of Philae. We return to our felucca in the evening for dinner and our last night on board.
  • Day 8 - Visit Abu Simbel Temple, overnight sleeper train to Cairo The Great Temple of Ramses II was carved from a mountain between 1290 and 1224 BC and was dedicated to the gods Ra-Harakhty, Amun and Ptah. Threatened by the rising waters of Lake Nasser, UNESCO organised a rescue of the temple in the 1960’s. The rescue involved carving the temple into more than 2000 blocks weighing up to 40 tonnes each and transferring them 210 metres away to a man made mountain, and reconstructing the temple façade which stands 30 metres high and 35 metres wide. From the outside it is hard to imagine that the temple is not original, and only by entering the mountain constructed in steel and concrete, is it possible to appreciate the enormous feat achieved by the archaeological teams. A very early morning wake-up call as we start our overland trip at 4.00am to visit this magnificent temple. Following a tour around the temple, we return to Aswan. Transfer this evening to the railway station to board the train for the overnight journey back to Cairo. Overnight sleeper train.
  • Day 9 - Arrive Cairo, sightseeing Cairo is a city of more than 18 million people – a bustling, dusty and boisterous metropolis with an abundance of character and history. Our time here is limited although we have included the highlights and focused our itinerary on the archaeological importance of the city and its surrounds. This morning we have a city tour including visits to the Citadel, the Khan al-Khalili Bazaar and Al-Muizz Street. A full afternoon is spent at the Egyptian Museum, providing you with an excellent insight into Egyptian history from the Old Kingdom right through to the Roman Empire. The highlight of the museum is the Tutankhamen exhibit, which houses the treasure from the tomb discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter. Although he was an insignificant Pharaoh, Tutankhamen’s tomb contained a stunning array of gold, including pure gold sandals. It is astounding to imagine what treasures a significant Pharaoh may have taken into their next life, had their tombs not been ransacked. We return to the hotel in the late afternoon for a rest before dinner (NB - dinner is not included in the tour cost; at your own additional expense).
  • Day 10 - In Cairo, trip concludes After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airport for your onward travel. If you would like additional nights in Cairo or an airport transfer on any other day, please ask your Reservations Consultant for details. Additional costs apply.
