Be awestruck by the legendary sights, myths and history on a 10 day Highlights of Egypt tour with luxury Nile River cruise.
Cairo is a city of many treasures, yet none are more emblematic than the Pyramids and Great Sphinx of Giza. A visit to these iconic structures is your first sightseeing excursion of the tour; a magnificent way to set the precedent for the days that follow. Getting up close to these legendary landmarks is an experience you’ll never forget! Your time in Cairo also includes a visit to the Egyptian Museum, the home of the finest collection of Egyptian antiquities and treasures in the world. Wander throughout the museum’s galleries and displays, gazing upon artefacts, tools, sarcophagus and even petrified royal mummies.
Say goodbye to the Egyptian capital as you board an overnight sleeper train for the journey to Aswan. This sprawling city sits on the banks of the Nile River and is your springboard for visiting the temple on the island of Philae. The isle is actually the temple’s second home; it was relocated to save it from the rising waters that resulted from the High Dam’s construction. Aswan is also the embarkment point for your luxury cruise along the Nile. Spend three nights aboard this deluxe cruise, making stops in Kom Ombo and Edfu ahead of arriving in Luxor. Once known as Thebes, the all-powerful capital favoured by the ancient Egyptian pharaohs, Luxor is teeming with remarkable archaeological sites. Head below ground to explore three of the tombs located within the legendary Valley of the Kings, find out more about one of Egypt’s most famous queens at the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, and gaze up at the gargantuan stone statues of the Colossi of Memnon.
