Sights Visited on This Tour

Sunniest city of Egypt and a popular touristic stop for many cruises. The local market here is an excellent place to do some shopping and to find Egyptian fresh spices.

With the Great Pyramids of Giza, ancient temples, magnificent monuments, and the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, Cairo offers an experience of a lifetime.

Dahab

“Gold” in Arabic, the city’s name was inspired from the golden sands by the Red Sea coast. Dahab offers Oceanside dinners and crystal-clear waters for diving and snorkeling.

Edfu has the most complete and best-preserved temple in Egypt, the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus, which was constructed between 237 BC and 57 BC

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and the only one still remaining to this day. An absolute must see.

Kom Ombo means ‘hill of the gold’ crowned with Temple of Komombo. The temple is unusual as one side is dedicated to the god Haroesis and the other side to Sobek.

A top travel destination in Egypt with a wealth of historic monuments and buildings bringing Egypt’s fabled past to life. Luxor is called the world’s greatest open air museum.

Philae Temple, a beautiful temple complex is one of the most picturesque in all of Egypt. It sits on Aglika Island just south of the old Aswan Dam.

Sakkara Pyramid is the oldest complete stone building complex in the history it was built as Djoser's step pyramid and it is located in Sakkara area.

The 42m long obelisk was left unfinished when some cracks appeared, but had this obelisk been completed, it would have been the heaviest, weighing nearly 1100 tons!

Sam’s knowledge of Egypt is incredible! We felt safe and looked after for the entirety of the trip. Maybe a quick intro at the start of the trip, where everyone can say hello and introduce themselves / say where they’re from would have been beneficial for breaking the ice for the group 🙂

The tour is huge with 35 or so members. It covers a lot, but the downside: you have to wake up early to catch the bus or train, the earliest being 2:30 am departure. You are always on the go. Hotels are good except Cairo. Sleeper trains are very basic and not comparable to those in Europe. The Cairo station is chaotic with no elevator. The main land portion should spread to 11 days instead of 9 days to allow some rest and free time in each city. Felucca ~ unique but not that romantic experience. Food is very medicore with one main dish only. Technically u can take a shower on the boat if u don’t mind cold water drips. River Nile itself is boring with no scenery. One night is more than enough. Tour guide Mo for the main land portion is much better than the rest. He is knowledgeable and passionate. Dahab hotel is nice and relaxing but the town itself has very little to offer. Probably 3 nights are sufficient. Overall I got good value from what I paid for.
