Day 3
Aswan

We’ll hop on a plane for a quick 40 minute flight to Aswan. First, we visit Philae Temple, dedicated to the goddess Isis, the temple of beauty and magic. We’ll wander through slowly learning about women’s roles in ancient Egypt. The Nile meets the exit of the temple for stunning views, but before we go, say hello to the many cats hanging out like locals at the cafe. Tonight we are staying in a family owned Nubian hotel right on the Nile River. Rest or explore until the evening when we visit a local Nubian woman who invites us into her home and cooks us an incredible meal. She tells us more about her life as a single mother, an uncommon life in her culture. Meals: breakfast, dinner

Day 4
Aswan

This morning choose an optional tour of Abu Simbel. Massive figures of King Ramses are etched in into the earth and inside are stories painted in vibrant color! This afternoon we will check in to our floating accommodation - an Egyptian sailboat called a felucca. An overnight on a felucca means a magical sunset followed by a campfire, dancing, and a drink or two. Think of it as camping for an evening with the best view of the stars, the sunrise, and truest experience of the Nile. Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation

Premium accommodation in both countries with a lot of Egyptian and Moroccan flair. Here are a few of our usual hotels to give you an idea of what you can expect when you travel with us. 

El Nakil Hotel, Countryside Luxor

Tucked away in the countryside, you will be greeted by smiling locals and waving kids as you make your way to this little hotel. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable, the grounds are gorgeous, and the food is some of the best we’ve ever had in Egypt. 

Dar Chaouen

Nestled in the mountains just outside Chefchaouen’sblue Medina, it’s a quick walk to the center, yet quiet with the best view around. The restaurant serves home cooked deliciousness and there is a pool overlooking the blue hills of the whole town.

Is this trip right for you?

  • Morocco is a large country with few means of public transportation and airport access. In order to see the best parts, there are some long drives. There are always beautiful views and things to see on the way, but be ready for long drives. 
  • We will be in some remote corners of the country where public bathrooms are not always very clean and may require a bit of change to use. The facilities in our accommodation are clean and use western toilets, but it won’t always be the case on the road. 
  • We stay in a lot of unique accommodation, so rooms are not always equal in size or view. We do our best to keep it even throughout the trip, but some may get luckier than others. We guarantee twin beds, but sizes may also vary even between roommates. 

Egypt: Most countries are able to visit Egypt with a visa upon arrival. It currently costs $25 (this can change any time without warning). 

Morocco: A visa upon arrival for stays less than 90 days is available for many nationalities. 

Please check the requirements for your country.
