Welcome to Egypt, a country loaded with ancient ruins and rich in culture. Your adventure begins when you are greeted at the airport with our VIP airport escort. Meet the group and relax in our hotel  just minutes away from the pyramids.

cairo
Great pyramids

Our Egyptologist tour guide will take us to the oldest pyramid in Egypt: The Step Pyramid of Saqqara. Be captivated by stories of Egyptian beliefs, plus why they built their tombs and how they are so well preserved over 2,000 years later. Next stop is Giza the Great Pyramid of King Khufu, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. We’ll take a break with traditional Egyptian lunch at one of our favorite local spots. Snap a photo next to the Sphinx and step into the mortuary temple of King Khaefraa for your first up-close look of hieroglyphics.  Meals: breakfast and lunch

aswan
welcome to the nile

We’ll hop on a plane for a quick 40 minute flight to Aswan. Philae Temple, dedicated to the goddess Isis, is the temple of beauty and magic. We’ll wander through slowly learning about women’s roles in ancient Egypt. The ocean 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. This afternoon, we’ll grab a bottle of wine and jump aboard the felucca, a traditional sailboat. We’ll sail slowly to an optional Egyptian feast at a Nubian woman’s home complete with drummers and dancing. For the next 3 days and nights nights a Nile cruise will be our home, where you’ll watching Egypt float by.Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

Aswan
abu simbel and kom ombo temples

Wake up to lush palms and desert hills as we continue our journey down the river. 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! You’ll have the early afternoon to soak up some sun and views by the pool on our cruise boat before Kom Ombo Temple. This temple is best seen in the evening and was built for the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Horus. You’ll get to see the sacred mummified crocodiles before we start sail towards Edfu City. Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

Luxor
Solo time and Luxor Temple

Tthe cruise will be sailing most of the day to get to Luxor, so sit back and relax as you cruise past villages and lush farms. The Temple of Luxor holds some of the most important carvings of ancient Egypt and is beautifully lit up at night.  Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

Luxor
valley of the kings and karnak temple

Watch the colors of the sunrise flood Luxor from up in the sky! Take a hot air balloon ride (optional) over the west bank of Luxor! See temples from above, wave to village kids, and see the striking contrast in landscape where desert abruptly meets lush fields. A very important stop of ancient Egypt is the Valley of the Kings: a maze of tombs belonging to the most famous pharaohs, like Tut Ankh Amon, King Ramses the 2nd, and Queen Hatshepsut. You’ll have time to wander solo to really soak it in.

We’ll have some solo time to wander through the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the few women who ruled Egypt. Our next stop at Colossi of Memnon is the perfect introduction to the art of sculpture. Local artists will explain how the ancient Egyptians, without our modern tools, used to build such massive, detailed structures.

You’ll have worked up an appetite by now, and you’ll be ready for a delicious Egyptian feast in the countryside.  Before the day is over, marvel at the biggest and greatest (depending on who you ask!) temple in Egypt, the 2nd largest in the world – The Temple of Karnak.

What our travelers say

As each day unfolded, I was more and more amazed. Everyone was supportive and friendly. I am used to travelling solo- so it was such a treat to have gals to talk with at meals and during the activities.
