The Sights – Tick the captivating sights of ancient Cairo off your bucket list

When someone says “Egypt”, images of ancient tombs, enormous pyramids, Pharaohs and a rich cultural history come to mind – and that is exactly what you’ll get on this 10-day tour of one of the most fascinating countries in Northeast Africa.

Witness the splendour of one of the Ancient Seven Wonders of the World with a trip to Cairo’s Great Pyramids. Built around 2500 B.C, the largest pyramid, Giza, is not only the oldest wonder of the world but also the only to remain largely intact. Nearby, capture the magnificence of the Great Sphinx of Giza. The limestone statue with the body of a lion and the head of a human is a huge 73 metres long from paw to tail and is one of the most visited sites in the country.

Journey to the Egyptian Museum and allow yourself to be transported back in time as you marvel at a vast collection of Pharaonic antiques – including the golden treasures of Tutankhamun.

The Cruise – Journey down the Nile River for seven nights aboard a five-star cruise ship

Spend seven luxurious nights floating down the longest river in the world and discover more of Egypt. Your cruise will make multiple stops during its journey, allowing you to disembark and explore the country by foot and motor coach.

Cruise to Aswan – a southern Egyptian city situated on the Nile, famous for its High Dam, which has improved navigation across the Nile River since it was built in 1960. Enjoy an afternoon sail on an Egyptian felucca around two different islands and experience a traditional Mediterranean mode of transport.
