  • DAY 1: Arrive in Cairo

    Upon your arrival at Cairo airport you will be met and assisted by our representative, who will help you with purchasing your visa from an official kiosk, going through passport control and collecting your baggage. You will then be transferred to your hotel, where your Egytpologist tour guide, who will accompany you for the duration of the tour, will brief you about the tour package and the incredible experiences you will have over the following eight days. 

    DAY 2: Giza Pyramids - Sphinx - Sakkara

    This morning you will experience the icons of ancient Egypt! Your Egyptologist guide will accompany you to the Giza pyramid complex, where you can see the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Pyramid of Khafre, the Pyramid of Menkaure, and the Great Sphinx. We'll then visit Sakkara to see the unique step pyramid of Zoser (also known as Djoser), the first ever pyramid, constructed of six tombs built on top of each other. The rest of the day is free at your leisure to explore Cairo or relax at the hotel.

    DAY 3: Cairo - Philae Temple - Aswan

    Early this morning you will be transferred to the airport for a short internal flight down to Aswan. Upon arrival you will be transferred to your hotel and have some time to freshen up, before we begin our Nile quest by visiting the High Dam of Aswan, where your guide will explain to you how the construction of the dam and subsequent creation of Lake Nasser required the relocation of the Nubian people and several important historical monuments, including Abu Simbel, which you have the opportunity to visit tomorrow. We'll then take a short boat ride to Agilkia Island to explore the Temple of Isis at Philae. Built during the Ptolemaic Kingdom (305 BC to 30 BC), the temple is dedicated to Isis, one of the oldest goddesses of ancient Egypt and worshipped as the paragon of motherly virtues. It is believed that the last Egyptian hieroglyph was written on the island of Philae in the late fourth century.

    DAY 4: Nile felucca cruise

    This morning you have the option of joining an optional excursion to Abu Simbel, two massive temples built into rock on the western bank of Lake Nasser. The temple complex is part of the Nubian Monuments UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the iconic relief figures were carved during the reign of of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC. After breakfast we'll check aboard our felucca. Sit back, relax and enjoy the amazing views as we navigate the River Nile on a traditional felucca wooden sailing boat. The covered deck provides shade, and also has comfortable mattresses, making it the perfect place to relax while drifting along one of the world's oldest waterways.

    DAY 5: Kom-Ombo - Edfu - Karnak - Luxor

    This morning we'll reach the Temple of Kom-Ombo, a unique 'double' temple dedicated to both the crocodile god Sobek, and the falcon god Haroeris (Horus). After some time to explore the temple, we'll head to Edfu. Also dedicated to Horus, this temple is more than 2,000 years old but was covered by sand until it was re-discovered by a French expedition in 1798. Because it was hidden for so long it is the most well preserved temple in Egypt.

    We'll then continue on to Luxor, where we'll take an afternoon tour of the east bank and experience the incredible Karnak temple complex, part of the ancient city of Thebes. Dedicated to the powerful ram-headed god Amun, it offers a vast mix of temples, chapels, statues and obelisks. We'll finish off the day with a tour of Luxor Temple, an important temple that was dedicated to three Gods: Amun, his wife Mut and their son Khons.

    DAY 6: Valley of the Kings - Hatshepsut - Hurghada

    This morning we'll start our tour of the west bank of Luxor with the world famous Valley of the Kings, where you can enter some of the incredible tombs of the New Kingdom Pharaohs, such as King Tutankhamen. We'll then get to experience the Temple of Hatshepsut (Deir El Bahary), the mortuary temple of the only Pharaoh Queen that ruled Egypt. The day will finish off with a visit to the great Colossi of Memnon, the last remains of Amenophis III’s temple. We'll then take our air-conditioned private bus to Hurghada on the Red Sea coast, where we'll be staying in a luxurious, all-inclusive resort.

    DAY 7: Hurghada - Free day
