Pyramid at Giza

Day 1: Cairo - Aswan

Welcome to Egypt! On arrival into Aswan you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Later, a visit out of town takes us to the mighty High Dam – a modern feat of engineering - creating the world’s largest artificial lake, Lake Nasser! This afternoon's highlight is a leisurely boat trip to Agilika Island for a guided tour of the romantic Philae Temple - dedicated to the goddess Isis. As the sun sets, free time to shop in the colourful souqs and markets or simply relax and watch an amazing sunset in Egypt's southern most town straddling the River Nile.

Day 2: Aswan

An early start this morning as you take to the skies for your flight to possibly the most awe-inspiring temple of all ancient Egypt, the magnificent Abu Simbel. Over the centuries the temple was all but lost to humanity due to shifting desert sands, however it was rediscovered by chance in 1813 by a Swiss explorer and eventually in the early 60's an excavation team restored it and once again the full glory of the temple of Abu Simbel was revealed to the modern world. Enjoy free time this afternoon after your flight back to Aswan.

Days 3-4: Aswan - Felucca Cruise

After breakfast, we enjoy a guided tour of the Temple of Kom Ombo - dedicated to the crocodile headed god - Sobek and the Temple of Horus at Edfu. Transfer back to Aswan where you will board your Nile felucca which will be your home for the next 2 nights. Relax, go for a swim or just chill out in the sun on deck. Let your troubles melt away, as the felucca floats downstream on the River Nile.

Day 5: Felucca Cruise

After disembarking the felucca you will be transferred to Luxor airport in time for your flight to Cairo, where your tour with us comes to an end.
