Discover Egypt Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Cairo

Wonderfully chaotic and always colourful, Cairo's dazzling array of museums, mosques and markets are a fascinating mixture of modern city and ancient wonders.

Days 3-4 Aswan/Abu Simbel

Situated on the banks of the Nile, the Nubian city of Aswan has been Egypt's southern gateway to Africa and an important trading centre since ancient times. Painstakingly relocated during the construction of the Aswan High Dam, the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel were originally built by Ramses II to intimidate Egypt's southern neighbours with their imposing facades.

Days 5-6 Nubian Homestay/Nile Felucca

Once the lifeblood of an ancient civilisation, cruise the iconic Nile on a traditional felucca and spend a night sleeping on deck under the stars.

Days 7-9 Luxor

From the spectacular temple complex of Karnak to the extraordinary hieroglyphs of the Valley of the Kings, Luxor is full of wonderfully preserved reminders of the Pharaohs.

Day 10 Cairo

With such iconic sights as the Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx to explore, Cairo offers a visual masterclass of ancient Egyptian architecture.

Day 11 Dahab

Make our way towards to seaside town of Dahab.

Days 12-13 Red Sea Beach Camp

Set on a magical stretch of the Red Sea, our beach camp is a hidden gem of fine golden sand and beautiful underwater reefs.

Days 14-15 Cairo

By far the largest city in Africa, Cairo is a bustling metropolis with an abundance of noise and energy in its streets and markets.
