Day by Day Itinerary

Arrive at any time. There are no planned activities until an evening welcome meeting.

Tour the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx before a guided tour of the Egyptian Museum. Catch an overnight train to Aswan. Head straight to the pyramids and soak in the history of these majestic structures. Later, visit the Egyptian Museum to see artifacts that are more ancient. In the evening, board an overnight train to Aswan.

Explore Aswan before visiting a Nubian village and enjoy a home-cooked dinner with a local family. Enjoy some free time in the morning to browse the souk or walk along the Nile. Later, board a felucca (local boat) to reach Elephantine Island and visit a Nubian village. Walk around the small community, and then enjoy a traditional dinner at a local home.

Spend the day exploring Aswan. Opt to visit the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel. One of the fascinating sights in the area is the Temple of Abu Simbel. Later, opt for a half-day tour of the Unfinished Obelisk, High Dam, and Philae Temple.Then visit the modern Nubian Museum to learn more about Aswan’s local people.

Sail the Nile on a felucca with a support boat. Sleep onboard under the stars. Board the felucca. Then spend the rest of the day out on the river and a night under the stars.

Enjoy a guided visit to Kom Ombo Temple before driving to Luxor. En route, then visit the Temple of Karnak.

Visit the Colossi of Memnon, Valley of the Kings, and the Temple of Hatshepsut. Then enjoy lunch with a local family on the West Bank of the Nile. Cross to the West Bank. Visit the massive 18m (59ft)-high Colossi of Memnon, which is all that remains of an ancient temple. Descend the narrow corridors and check out the tombs of the pharaohs at the Valley of the Kings. The Funerary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut literally seems to rise out of the surrounding limestone outcrops.

Arrive early morning in Cairo where the tour ends. We highly recommend booking pre- or post-accommodation to explore this vibrant city.
