Cairo International Airport
Welcome to Egypt and the start of your family holiday! Upon arrival in Cairo, our representative will meet and assist you at the airport and accompany your family to your hotel for check-in. Spend the rest of the evening at your own leisure.
Home to one of the world’s first great civilizations, Egypt is brimming with ancient wonders and today we will discover some of its most impressive. Our first stop will be at the Giza Plateau where sits the legendary pyramids and iconic sphinx figure. Marvel at the incredible architectural feats that even to this day puzzle archaeologists, and why not opt for a camel ride to make the experience truly unforgettable.
Leaving the pyramids behind us, we will travel on to the necropolis of Saqqara, brimming with sand strewn temples, ancient tombs and the site of Zoser’s step pyramid. Later this evening we will make our way to the train station for our overnight journey to Luxor by sleeper train.
Overnight: Sleeper Train | Breakfast
Upon arrival in Luxor, we will transfer to the hotel for check-in. Considered to be one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, ancient Thebes – known today as Luxor, will be our base for the next two days. Today there is free time to kick back and relax and later in the evening, there will be an optional excursion to the Temple of Luxor. Already impressive during day light, the temple takes on a magically glow after dark as it becomes illuminated by a thousand colored lights. Spend the rest of the evening at your own leisure.
Today we will visit Luxor’s famous West Bank of the Nile home to the famed Valley of the Kings, a vast and ancient necropolis that marks the burial place of pharaohs from the New Kingdom period. First stop will be at the Colossi of Memnon, a towering pair of statues that are all that remain of temple of Amenophis III. Touring will continue in the Valley of the Kings and on to the Valley of the Queens, the site of the imposing colonnaded temple of Queen Hatshepsut.
Crossing back over to East Bank, we will return to our hotel for some free time before heading to Karnak. More than a temple, Karnak is a spectacular complex of sanctuaries, pylons and obelisks built on a grand scale. During the height of Theban power, Karnak was the most important place of worship.
Departing today Luxor we will head east to Hurghada, part of the beautiful Red Sea Riviera for four days of beachside bliss! Transportation to Hurghada may be shared with other On the Go tour groups.
Once a small fishing village, Hurghada is now one of the most popular Red Sea resorts attracting visitors with its superb diving and pristine beaches. The best reefs are found offshore and can be explored with boat trips to the uninhabited Giftun Islands or onboard the Sinbad Submarine. Hotels and expanded infrastructure provide holidaymakers with excellent aquatic facilities for sail boarding, yachting, deep-sea fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling. Just outside of the resort town is an ancient Roman quarry called Mons Porphyritis and Port Safarga – a famously windy place that is ideal for windsurfing.
The next three days are free for you and your family to explore Hurghada or simply relax by the beach. On day 6 there will be an optional day trip to the Giftun Islands for swimming and snorkeling, which can be booked locally.
Overnight: Hurghada | Breakfast x 3
This morning we depart Hurghada and head back to Cairo. We take a guided tour of the enlightening Egyptian Museum, where you can see the famed solid gold death mask of King Tutankhamun and opt to visit the Royal Mummy room.
