No meals included.

Day 2, Pyramids of Giza

Cairo - Luxor. Home to one of the world’s first great civilizations, Egypt is brimming with ancient wonders and today we will discover some of its most impressive. Our first stop will be at the Giza Plateau where sits the legendary pyramids and iconic sphinx figure. Marvel at these incredible architectural feats that even to this day puzzle archaeologists, plus why not opt for a camel ride to make the experience truly unforgettable.

Leaving the pyramids behind us, we will travel on to the necropolis of Saqqara, brimming with sand strewn temples, ancient tombs and the site of Zhoser’s step pyramid. Later this evening we will make our way to the train station for our overnight journey to Luxor by sleeper train.

Day 3, Ancient Thebes

Upon arrival in Luxor we will transfer to the hotel for check-in. Considered to be one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, ancient Thebes – known today as Luxor, will be our base for the next two days. Today there is free time to kick back and relax and later in the evening there will be an optional excursion to the Temple of Luxor. Already impressive during day light, the temple takes on a magically glow after dark as it becomes illuminated by a thousand coloured lights (Book/pay locally at approx USD$20 including entrance fees). Spend the rest of the evening at your own leisure.

1 breakfast, no lunch, no dinner included.

Day 4, Valley of the Kings

You can opt to float over Luxor in a hot air balloon first thing this morning before we visit Luxor’s famous West Bank. West Bank of the Nile is home to the famed Valley of the Kings, a vast and ancient necropolis which marks the burial place of pharaohs from the New Kingdom period. First stop will be at the Colossi of Memnon, a towering pair of statues that are all that remain of temple of Amenophis III. Touring will continue in the Valley of the Kings and on to the Valley of the Queens, the site of the imposing colonnaded temple of Queen Hatshepsut.

Crossing back over to East Bank we will return to our hotel for some free time before heading to Karnak. More than a temple, Karnak is a spectacular complex of sanctuaries, pylons and obelisks built on a grand scale. During the height of Theban power, Karnak was the most important place of worship.

1 breakfast, no lunch, no dinner included.

Day 5, Red Sea Riviera

Day 6-8, Red Sea Relaxation

Once a small fishing village, Hurghada is now one of the most popular Red Sea resorts attracting visitors with its superb diving and pristine beaches. The best reefs are found offshore and can be explored with boat trips to the uninhabited Giftun Islands or onboard the Sunbad Submarine. Hotels and expanded infrastructure provide holidaymakers with excellent aquatic facilities for sail boarding, yachting, deep-sea fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkelling. Just outside of the resort town is an ancient Roman quarry called Mons Porphyritis and Port Safarga – a famously windy place which is ideal for windsurfing.
