There is a fair amount of walking involved in exploring the pyramids, and it can get very hot in the summer. Be sure your family has appropriate clothing, sun protection and plenty of water to drink. Evenings can get quite cool, so it’s best to bring warm clothes too. Wearing layers is the best way to deal with the disparity in day and night temperatures. Cruising down the Nile on a felucca is an amazing experience, but keep in mind that facilities will be basic. You’ll sleep outside under the stars on a simple mattress. There is a nice clean toilet on board. Book now your Egypt tours with us.
Our representative will meet and greet you at Cairo International Airport, and help you handle your procedures through passport control, luggage area, customs formalities. You will then be transferred to your hotel on a private air-conditioned vehicle. Overnight in Cairo.
Explore the amazing Pyramids of Giza which have stood tall for 4,500 years. Afterwards, make your way to the Egyptian Museum, home to one of the worlds great collections of antiquities. Wander the treasure-filled halls of the museum. Youll have plenty of time to explore the sites today (approximately 3 hours for the pyramids and 3 hours for the museum). In the evening you will board an overnight train to the southern city of Aswan (approximately 13 hours).
Arrive in Aswan in the morning. Here the Nile runs deep and fast between granite rocks as the desert encroaches on the river. Even to travellers in ancient times, Aswan was known as the legendary gateway to the kingdom of Nubia. Today it is still something of a frontier town, where the Arab Middle East meets black Africa. Visiting the packed bazaar is highly recommended here youll find exotic spices, carpets, leather goods and countless other wares. Enjoy the sights of donkey carts and men in flowing robes and turbans. In the afternoon there may be time to take a taxi out to visit the Temple of Isis at Philae (optional). There are many other sites to be seen around Aswan and your leader should be able to organize some excursions perhaps a camel ride or a trip to the Unfinished Obelisk. In the evening you will take a trip across the river to a Nubian village and enjoy dinner at one of the local houses.
Perhaps rise early to visit the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel (minimum of 4 people). Later in the day, you and your family will board feluccas (traditional wooden boats with broad canvas sails) to spend a day out on the Nile river and then a night under the stars. Watching the sun set across the Nile is unforgettable, and this part of the trip is sure to be a highlight. Your Nubian sailing crew will prepare all meals. While theres no cabin or enclosed section on the felucca, a canopy offers shade and protection from the elements. Conditions are basic, and you will sleep outside on the deck on a mattress. While blankets are provided, a sleeping sheet is recommended. There is a very clean toilet on board. During the colder months (October to March) it can get very cold at night (as low as 5C) so a sleeping bag is highly recommended.
This morning you will visit the temple at Kom Ombo. The temple is dedicated to two gods: Haroeris (Horus the elder) and the crocodile-headed Sobek, the Egyptian god of the Nile. Check out the many mummified crocodiles on display. On the east bank around Kom Ombo, reclaimed land is fed by canals to keep the desert at bay. It supports not only crops of sugar cane but also a large Nubian community displaced from their homeland by the rising waters of Lake Nasser. Transfer by bus to Luxor (approximately 4 hours), tracing the path of the Nile northward. Upon arrival youll have time to look around the towns monuments and museum, and it may be possible to visit Karnak temple to witness the memorable sound and light show (optional) which relates its history in dramatic fashion.
Visit the ancient tombs of the pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. Rising early, cross the Nile and drive to the secluded valley where 63 pharaohs were buried as part of their journey to the afterlife. In the company of a local guide you will explore (for approximately 2 hours) some of the exquisitely decorated tombs of these rulers of long ago. It is here that the burial site of the boy-king, Tutankhamun, discovered by British archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922, can be found. This visit to the Valley of the Kings brings to life much of what you saw in the Egyptian Museum. If youd like to organise a visit to King Tuts tomb today, this can be arranged with advance notice ask your leader for details. On your way back to the river you can see the funerary temple of Queen Hatshepsut, Egypts first female ruler, and youll spend about an hour here. This afternoon you are free to explore Luxor or perhaps just relax by the hotel pool.
Early this morning, take a horse-drawn carriage to the historic temple of Karnak (approximately 1 hour), which you will explore with a local guide. Explore the magnificent Karnak Temple, perhaps the most impressive of all the ancient Pharoahs monumental works. In the afternoon, bid farewell to the Nile and drive east to Hurghada (approximately 5 hours). The green Nile valley is soon left behind as you head out into the barren Eastern Desert. Passing through rocky hills, the glittering waters of the Red Sea soon come into view and the rugged bulk of the Sinai Peninsula looms through the haze on the opposite shore. A vibrant beach resort, Hurghada is by no means a typical adventure destination, and snorkelling here is a great way to round off the trip.
Take to the waves this morning, heading to some offshore reefs where you can swim and snorkel to see the abundance of vividly coloured marine life that inhabit these waters. Youll have around four hours to explore this underwater world. The young ones will love this part of the trip.
Afterwards, enjoy some free time to relax. If youve had enough of the sea and sand, you might like to take this opportunity to explore town. In the northern part of town youll find the proper Egyptian part of the city this is where the souq is. Its a good place to mingle with the locals and get a sense of everyday life.
You adventure comes to an end. There are no activities planned for the final day and you are able to depart your accommodation at any time. Please check the Finishing Point Hotel section for checkout times and luggage storage possibilities.
