What our specialists say...

This itinerary allows you to experience the wonderful array of Pharaohnic temples and artefacts around Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, without including a Nile cruise. You begin in Cairo, exploring a range of stunning temple complexes, before contextualising all this with a visit to the gloriously disorganised Cairo Museum. After a short flight down to Luxor, you will be shown the miraculous tombs and temples of the East and West Banks. Your overland transfer to Aswan includes more historical highlights, before you finish off with a couple of days relaxing in Egypt's most laid back city.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Cairo
  • Luxor
  • Aswan
  • Cairo
