Tour Itinerary

Day # 1) 18th Feb / 18th Oct- Arrive Cairo, Egypt
Welcome to Cairo! At the airport, our representative will greet you and provide assistance with airport procedures. You will be comfortably transferred to your hotel in Cairo. Enjoy a free evening and overnight at your hotel.

Day # 2) 19th Feb / 19th Oct Cairo
Cairo is a city of dreams. Today you will visit The Great Pyramid of Cheops at Giza, it was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. Menkaure and Khufu’s Pyramid complete the colossal trio. Khufu’s Pyramid remains one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Ancient World’. Close by, the Great Sphinx watches and guards the Giza Plateau. Next, you will travel to Saqqara to witness the first pyramid of them all — the 2648 BC-completed Step Pyramid of Djoser. Overnight at your hotel in Cairo.(B)

Day # 3 ) 20th Feb / 20th Oct: Cairo City Tour
It is frenetic with bustle, bazaars and traffic chaos; and yet its ancient edifices stand ennobled. It has everything you could want from an ancient city. Then there are those labyrinths; those anciently narrow, bustling streets and quiet corners. Your morning tours begin at the Egyptian Museum. Here, you will be in communion with magnificent treasures — including Tutankhamun’s fabulously famous Gold Mask. Then we guide you to the city’s Islamic areas — including the Citadel of Saladin and the Alabaster Mosque of Mohammed Ali. This holy place is set at the highest point of Cairo, so you’ll view a remarkable panorama of the city. Escorted shopping trip at Khan el Khalili bazaar, where locals drink tea, smoke shisha. Overnight at your hotel in Cairo. (B)

Day # 4 ) 21st Feb / 21st Oct: Cairo to Aswan
The morning begins with a short flight to Aswan. Freshen up at your hotel. Aswan tour will start with High Dam, then in vivid contrast, take a short ferry across the Nile to the magnificent Ancient Egyptian Philae Temple. To end the day, a traditional felucca will sail you to tusk-shaped Elephantine Island and botanical Kitchener Island. Feel free to explore Aswan’s renowned markets or visit the International Museum of Nubia. Overnight at your hotel. (B)

Day # 5 ) 22nd Feb / 22nd Oct: Aswan to Abu Simbel Sun Festival
At 2 am this morning, join your convoy drive to the Great Temples of Abu Simbel. Here, take your place to witness the extraordinarily rare sun illumination of the statue of Ramses II and his sun gods Re-Horakhte and Amon-Re. Later, further explore the 13th-century- BC Temples of Abu Simbel and Hathor — also known as the Temple of Queen Nefertari. Return to Aswan for well-earned relaxation. Overnight at your hotel in Aswan. (B)

Day # 6 ) 23rd Feb / 23d Oct:  Edfu & Kom Ombo Tour – Luxor
Early departure from Aswan in an air-conditioned vehicle; break your journey at the ‘double’ Temple of Kom Ombo; and in Edfu, the remarkably well-preserved Temple of Horus. Welcome to Luxor on the east bank of the Nile. Overnight at your hotel.(B)

Day # 7 ) 24th Feb / 24th Oct : Luxor Tour
A free morning time in Luxor at your hotel. Your afternoon venture starts at the East Bank of Luxor. Here, you will enter the Karnak Temple Complex — a vast area of temples, chapels, pylons and the Great Temple of Amun. You will walk down the avenue of ram-headed sphinxes that connect the Precinct of Mut, the Precinct of Amun-Ra and the Luxor Temple. This afternoon you will have free time; perhaps a visit to the Luxor Museum or do some bartering in a souk. Overnight at your hotel.(B)

Day # 8 ) 25th Feb / 25th Oct: Luxor Tour – Fly to Cairo
Early morning an optional hot-air balloon trip over Luxor. Awake in 4,000 year-old Luxor, evocative site of the ancient city of Thebes and ‘the world’s greatest open-air museum’. As you enter the Valleys of the Kings and Queens, you will pass Deir El Madina, Madinet Habou and the Colossi of Memnon. The tombs are not all accessible by wheelchair, but the tombs of Ramses IV, VII and IX have ramps. Visit the colonnaded temple that was uniquely dedicated to a queen — Queen Hatshepsut. Fly to Cairo this evening. Overnight at your hotel.(B)

Day # 9 ) 26th Feb / 26th Oct: Cairo – Home
Transfer to Cairo Airport for your departure from Egypt.(B)
