Tour description

 

Egypt Tours We begin the tour in Cairo where we take time to visit possibly the most famous of ancient monuments, the Pyramids and Sphinx. We also learn more about Egyptian history at the Egyptian Museum before heading to the train station for the overnight sleeper train to Aswan. The Nile in Aswan is a beautiful sight, and full of lush green islands and traditional felucca sailboats set among the cataracts. While in Aswan, we visit the tranquil island Temple of Philae by boat, and see the immense High Dam, before boarding feluccas on a cruise down the Nile (luxury Dahabiyas and luxury cruise upgrades available).

Egypt Tours

You begin your tour in Cairo, with a visit the Gisa Plateau, site of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Pyramids and Sphinx. After learning about their history, we then take you into the city centre to tour the vast Egyptian Museum, with its famous Tutankhamun display.
We leave Cairo to travel across the Suez Canal and through the Sinai desert to the Red Sea coast and the charming resort of Dahab. Famed for its golden sands, this picturesque Bedouin village will be your base for the next few days.
While in Dahab we include a trip to the Blue Hole, a famous dive site with a huge variety of corals and fish that is also excellent for snorkelling. A sunset camel ride makes a memorable end to the day.

We include a half day inside the site, including a 2 1/2-hour guided tour, lunch, entrance fees, and some free time to walk up to the High Place of Sacrifice or the Monastery with its huge carved facade and stunning views over the Jordan valley.
