Itinerary

Glimpse the Pyramids in the distance as you make your way through Cairo's charismatic and chaotic streets. Head out to Giza with a knowledgeable guide and be awed by the world's last remaining ancient wonder. Explore the pyramids and the enigmatic Sphinx before heading to the Egyptian Museum to marvel at the treasures of an ancient kingdom. In the evening, board an overnight train.
Arrive in the traditional trading centre of Aswan, where the Nile runs deep and fast between granite rocks and the white sands of the desert meet the banks of the river. Enjoy some free time to explore and perhaps head out on an optional camel ride before heading for dinner at a Nubian village.
Live one of the great travelling dreams and float down the Nile, the world’s longest river, on a felucca. In the evening, camp out on deck and fall asleep underneath the stars.
Visit the temple of Kom Ombo to see mummified crocodiles before transferring to Luxor by bus. Known more famously as the ancient city of Thebes, this town has plenty of activities to enjoy – from ancient temples to a memorable light and sound shows. The following day, cross the Nile and uncover the Valley of the Kings – the home of the infamous tomb of Tutankhamun.
Board a horse-drawn carriage and travel to Karnak, one of Egypt’s grandest temples. After exploring this architectural wonder, leave the Nile behind and head for Hurghada, a vibrant beach resort where coral reefs are just waiting to be explored.
Depart Hurghada on the Red sea and head home or take part in another Intrepid Family Adventure.
