OVERNIGHT: Cairo hotel

We start today’s tour with a bang, with a visit to the immense Pyramids & Sphinx at Giza. We also include a camel ride at the pyramids, fun for all the family, and a great photo opportunity as well. We then head into the center of town and visit the Egyptian Museum with its collection of great treasures, and of course, the familiar and famous Tutankhamun exhibit with the original golden mask on display. This evening we take an overnight sleeper train from Cairo to Aswan (approx. 12 hours, private twin cabins). OVERNIGHT: On board train MEALS: Breakfast, Dinner

The River Nile is at its most picturesque here in Aswan and we take advantage of this with a tour to the beautiful island temple of Philae by boat. During term times, we will also visit a local school where we arrange fun and informal joint English/Arabic language class with children of a similar age to your group. A Nubian meal is also included today. OVERNIGHT: Aswan hotel MEALS: Breakfast, Lunch

There is the option very early this morning for a tour to the temples of Ramses II at Abu Simbel, which have a fascinating story as they were completely dismantled and rebuilt piece by piece to escape the rising waters of Lake Nasser. If you do not do Abu Simbel, the morning is free to explore Aswan’s busy and exotic bazaar or relax in the hotel before we board our felucca sailboat for a few hours sailing on the Nile. We have a fun night’s sleep on the deck of the boat and are looked after well by our Nubian crew (toilets and showers are available on a support boat that will join up with us from time to time, and an option to upgrade to a luxury Nile cruise boat is also available).

There is the option today of a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the west bank of the Nile. Today’s tour takes in the West bank of the Nile, visiting the Pharaonic tombs in the Valley of the Kings, and the unique temple to Queen Hatshepsut where we learn about her fascinating story. The afternoon is free to relax in the hotel, explore Luxor town, take another felucca trip on the Nile to Banana Island, or perhaps visit the Mummification Museum. OVERNIGHT: Luxor hotel MEALS: Breakfast

We tour one of Egypt’s biggest and most impressive sites today, Karnak temple, with its huge temples, obelisks, statues, and columned halls.

OVERNIGHT: On board train MEALS: Breakfast
