Once in Cairo your transfer will whisk you from the airport to the hotel where you'll get to meet your fellow travellers. On Day 2, enjoy a morning visit to the fascinating Egyptian Museum, home to over 100,000 relics of the past. Later, head over to the Great Pyramids of Giza and the awesome Sphinx, Egypt's most renowned monuments, and once you're there, you'll understand why! Next, it's all aboard an overnight train to Aswan, a city located on the banks of the Nile.
In Aswan, make your way to the Philae Temple, a monument dedicated to the Goddess Isis. Sat on the banks of the Nile river, the sight is pretty spectacular! Later, there is the option to visit a Nubian village for a traditional dinner. On Day 4, rise and shine for an early departure to Abu Simbel to visit the incredible temple built by Rameses II and the Temple of Hathor, built in honour of the Goddess of Love and Music, Queen Nefertari. Return to Aswan and board a felucca sailboat to head off down the Nile.
Spend a full day of sailing on the River Nile, getting your fill of fresh air. Your Nubian crew will do all the heavy lifting, giving you the chance to relax and enjoy the view. You definitely won't want to miss it!
Take in the sight of the ancient Kom Ombo temple before continuing to the ancient capital of Luxor. On Day 7, discover the world-famous Valley of the Kings on a guided tour. Next, make your way over to the incredible Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon and then board the train for your overnight trip back to Cairo.
Back in Cairo, you have the rest of the day to explore this buzzing city - make the most of it as it's your last full day as your trip will come to an end after breakfast on Day 9.
