Expand All
1 Cairo
There are no planned activities until an evening welcome meeting. Stay: Santana Hotel
2 Cairo - Aswān
Head straight to the pyramids and soak in the history of these majestic structures. Later, visit the Egyptian Museum to see more ancient artifacts. In the evening, board an overnight train to Aswan. The overnight train is a modern air-conditioned sleeper, with twin-berth beds. There is no shower in the cabin, but each cabin does have a sink. The shared toilet is at the end of each carriage. A basic airline-style tray meal for dinner and breakfast is included. Attendants can serve drinks in your compartment at extra cost or there is a bar car for socializing. (B/D)
3 Aswān
Our train is due to arrive in Aswan early in the morning, but, trains can often be delayed. Enjoy some free time in the morning to browse the souk or walk along the Nile. Later, board a felucca (local boat) to reach Elephantine Island and visit a Nubian village. Walk around the small community, then enjoy a traditional dinner at a local home. Stay: Nile Hotel (B/D)
4 Aswān
One of the most fascinating sights in the area is the Temple of Abu Simbel. Later, opt for a half-day tour of the Unfinished Obelisk, High Dam, and Philae Temple. Visit the modern Nubian Museum to learn more about Aswan's local people. Stay: Nile Hotel (B)
5 Aswān - Kom Ombo
Board the felucca and spend the rest of the day out on the river and a night under the stars. Feluccas are a basic, traditional Nile sailboat and make for an extremely relaxing and enjoyable way to travel down the river. You sleep, open-air on the deck of the boat (mattresses and blankets are provided, but if you prefer something between you and the blankets, you will need to bring a sleep sheet/sleeping bag liner of your own). The Felucca itself does not have toilets or showers, however we will have access to a private support boat, travelling in close proximity to our Felucca. This support boat is equipped with toilets and a shower (please bring a towel) and and an area to eat your meals, leaving you stress free to enjoy this tranquil and traditional experience on the Nile. (B/L/D)
6 Kom Ombo - Luxor
Enjoy a guided visit Kom Ombo Temple before driving to Luxor. En route, visit the Temple of Karnak. Stay: Susanna Hotel (B)
7 Luxor
Cross to the West Bank. Visit the massive 18m (59ft)-high Colossi of Memnon, which is all that remains of an ancient temple. Descend down the narrow corridors and check out the tombs of the pharaohs at the Valley of the Kings. The Funerary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut literally seems to rise out of the surrounding limestone outcrops. Enjoy lunch with a local family on the West bank of the Nile and then explore Luxor at your own pace. Stay: Susanna Hotel (B/L)
8 Luxor - Cairo
We highly recommend booking pre- or post-accommodation to fully explore this vibrant city. (B)

“Well organised 8 day tour to Egypt”
- WA, Australia Jan 2019

It was a well organised tour. A lot of history and the knowledge of our guide was outstanding. The group was funny and very cooperative. I had a good time. The accommodation was just standard and perhaps a little review of some places could be revisited. Overall I'll be happy to book a trip with Global Journeys because of their genuine approach to travel. Thank you for the fun.
