Egypt - Pharaohs and Pyramids

16 days

From £6,275

Summary

Traveling through Egypt is a mystical and unique experience as the sense of awe inspired by Egypt’s legendary ancient monuments and archaeological sites is one unlike any other. No preconception can prepare you for the scale and grandeur of Egypt’s treasures, nor match the enduring impact of the stories they hold and the secrets they keep. Our tour extends far beyond clichéd Egyptian pyramids and mummies – it will especially appeal to the traveler in search of true understanding of the civilization whose culture and heritage influenced not only the Greeks and Romans, but also our very own modern world. Guided by our knowledgeable tour leader who will share their insights into the discoveries that each new day brings, our itinerary offers an opportunity to enjoy a journey through 3,000 years of history.

Starting in Cairo and heading south to Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel, we travel the Nile by land, water and air. We visit Egypt’s most spectacular temple and pyramid complexes, both world-famous and lesser-known, before embarking on a luxurious five-day river cruise - sailing the life-giving waters of the Nile.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore the seldom-visited pyramid complexes at Dahshur and Abusir, where the 5th-Dynasty Pharaohs built their pyramids
  • Visit the great temples of Abu Simbel overlooking Lake Nasser, among the most famous and spectacular monuments in Egypt
  • Travel to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and visit the mummy rooms of Cairo’s Egyptian Museum
  • Cruise in comfort along the Nile, visiting sites that include Kom Ombo’s rare double temple, Aswan’s beautiful Philae Temple, and Luxor’s Valley of the Kings and Queens
  • Wander through Karnak, whose vast sprawling complex is largely dedicated to the god, Amun
