Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip Cairo

Arrive in Cairo and check-in at our hotel. Cairo is Africa's second largest capital city and is a vibrant, exhilarating and welcoming city. Home to the best Pharaonic, Coptic and Islamic sites in Egypt, there is an incredible amount to discover here. If you arrive early you may wish to catch your first glimpse of the mighty Nile River, visit the capital's medieval market at Khan el Khalili or walk down the Nile promenade.

Day 2 - In Cairo; visit the Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum

This morning we make our way to Giza, where we see the Pyramids and Sphinx; among the most impressive man-made spectacles in the world. We explore the pyramid complex, which includes the Sphinx, a crouching lion with a human head carved from solid rock and the splendid Granite Temple, with a local guide. After the Pyramids, we visit a papyrus institute, where we will learn about the ancient methods of paper making in the Egypt of the Pharaohs. We'll then have a picnic lunch before visiting the Egyptian Museum; a spectacular repository of over 120,000 items encompassing all aspects of ancient Egyptian life, including ornate jewellery and towering granite statues, mummified remains and, of course, the remarkable golden treasures of Tutankhamun himself. This evening we enjoy a traditional meal in a local restaurant.

Day 3 - Free day in Cairo to explore, overnight train to Aswan

Today is a free day for optional trips in the capital. This morning there is the opportunity to visit Saqqara, the impressive steppe pyramid/necropolis of Zozer (Djoser) - the earliest of the pyramids of Egypt; whilst this afternoon you can take a trip to Islamic Cairo to visit the illustrious Citadel, one of Saladin's many strongholds during the Crusades period. There will also be the chance to enter one or more of the medieval mosques of Cairo. Alternatively you could use this free time to revisit the vast Egyptian Museum. This evening we depart for Aswan on an overnight train in sleeper compartments.

Day 4 - In Aswan; optional Philae Temple and Nubian Village dinner

Aswan is Egypt's most southerly city, traditionally regarded as the frontier post of Upper Egypt. Sited on the east bank, it stands just below the First Cataract and is the meeting point of Arab culture with Nubia and black Africa. Today we have time to explore Aswan and the surrounding area. Our early arrival allows us time to take an optional excursion to the High Dam, Philae Temple marooned on a picturesque island, and the Unfinished Obelisk. Returning to our hotel around lunch time there is time to relax this afternoon and enjoy independent sightseeing. This evening there will be the opportunity to take a motor boat journey to a traditional Nubian village for a home cooked dinner with a family who have been friends with Explore for many years!

Please note: If visiting the Nubian village, you may like to bring some small gifts for the children such as notebooks and pencils. However, please do not give sweets or money.

Day 5 - Board cruise boat and optional felucca sailing trip

After breakfast we offer an optional excursion across to the West Bank to St Simeon's Monastery. We travel here by boat and camel as we head out across the desert. One of the largest Coptic monasteries in Egypt, St Simeon's was built in the 7th century and abandoned in the 13th century. It now sits in isolation at the end of a desert valley, an impressive sight. A 45 minute camel ride brings us to the monastery where we will meet our local guide. After the visit we remount and return along the bank to our boat.

We return to Aswan and board a river cruise boat, our home for the next three nights, just in time for lunch. This afternoon is free for you to enjoy the facilities on board and relax, or alternatively take a traditional felucca boat and sail around the Aswan islands including a visit to the Botanical Gardens. This evening's meal is served back on board.

Day 6 - Optional excursion to Abu Simbel, begin sailing and visit Kom Ombo Temple

Today you may like to take a very early morning trip by bus or air to the fabulous rock-hewn temple of Abu Simbel. Cut into the rock face, this enormous structure was raised 61m to save it from floods created by the Aswan High Dam. The 20m high statues represent Ramses II, known as the great builder.

We return in time for our cruise to begin and start sailing, heading north (downstream) towards Kom Ombo where we disembark. Situated on the banks of the river, this temple is particularly unique because it is dedicated to two gods; Haroeris and Sobek, the crocodile god. It is thought that this part of the Nile used to have a large crocodile population, hence the dedication to Sobek. This evening, we continue upstream to Edfu city where we overnight.

A sacred falcon-headed god guards the Temple of Horus, which is in almost perfect condition. We return to our boat and sail on to Luxor, arriving in the late afternoon which allows some free time to wander around the souks and busy streets before dinner. Tonight there is the opportunity to experience the Sound and Light Show at Karnak Temple, an incredible display where Karnak and the story of Egypt comes alive.

Built around 2000 BC, this vast temple was still in progress during Cleopatra's reign during the 1st century BC. This afternoon is free to relax after a busy few days or you may like to visit the Workers Tombs and Habu Temple.

Day 9 - Explore the West Bank and Valley of the Kings

Today we explore the West Bank more closely. Travelling across the Nile by motor boat we visit Deir El Medina, an ancient Egyptian village situated in a small, natural amphitheatre which was home to the artisans who created the tombs in the Valley of the Kings. We then move on to the Valley of the Kings to explore this ancient site made famous by the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter. The tomb entrances are surprisingly large and light, the hieroglyphics are an absolute wonder and still so vivid. We visit three tombs here before returning back across the Nile to our hotel. This afternoon you may like to take a stroll to the Luxor Temple and Museum, both of which are within walking distance of our hotel or you could just relax and enjoy the hotel facilities.
