Days 1-2 Cairo

The never-ending stream of life and noise makes Cairo fascinating to explore. In free time, head out to discover the Sphinx and Pyramids of Giza before catching an overnight train from Cairo to Aswan.

Days 3-4 Aswan

Nestled on the banks of the Nile, Aswan is a great base for exploration. Consider visiting a nearby Nubian village for a dinner of traditional delicacies and to enjoy the local swimming holes. A daytrip to the fascinating temples of Abu Simbel is also highly recommended.

Day 5 Nile Felucca

A Nubian crew provides food and song on this traditional felucca journey down the Nile. Watch river life in action and fall asleep on deck beneath the starry night sky.
