Day Destination Experience
1 Cairo

Upon arrival in Cairo you will met and transferred to our hotel. The day is yours to unwind or explore the city. Tonight, we’ve arranged for you to really get to know Egypt – dinner hosted by a local family.

2 Cairo

It’s an early morning as we have a full day ahead of us! We begin our day by departing for the Egyptian Museum by taking a water taxi on the Nile.  Our group will have VIP access, before opening hours, to experience the museum without crowds. From here, we’re off to Giza where our visit includes the pyramids, the Solar Boat Museum and a private visit to the paws of the Sphinx.  No visit to Egypt would be complete without a camel ride, which will be followed by lunch in the garden of the world famous Mena House Hotel.  This evening, a light and sound show will be followed by a private felucca dinner on the Nile.

3 Cairo / Luxor

Today we transfer from our hotel to the Cairo airport for our flight to Luxor where we set sail on our Nile cruise. Today’s ports of call include Karnak and Luxor Temples.

4 Luxor

Our cruise today brings us to The Valley of the Kings and Queens and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon. Tonight the captain invites you to his cocktail reception followed by dinner and disco music in the lounge!

5 Edfu / Kom Ombo

Cruise highlights today include the Temple of Horus in Edfu and Kom Ombo.

7 Aswan / Abu Simbel

Transfer to the Aswan airport for a flight to Abu Simbel where we will visit what many consider to be second only to the Great Pyramids. Return to Cairo where the balance of the day is at leisure.

8 Cairo

A unique day is ahead. Cairo is a city of many faiths and cultures and today we experience some of the historical and cultural sites that make this city unlike any other. Visits include the Mohamed Ali Mosque, Coptic Cairo and the Khan El Khalili Bazaar. A late lunch will be served at the famous Zooba Restaurant before returning to our hotel.
