Start the adventure in the high-energy capital of Egypt. With the help of a guide, unravel ancient history on an exciting visit to the iconic Pyramids of Giza. These mighty structures have stood for thousands of years and are still shrouded in mystery. Afterwards, head to the Egyptian Museum to admire the glittering treasures that were recovered from Tutankhamun's tomb. In the early evening, board an overnight sleeper train bound for the next stop on this journey.

Day 3 Aswan

Watch views of the Nile River flash by as the train continues to Aswan. Explore the bazaars of this relaxed city, then enjoy a traditional dinner in a Nubian village.

Day 4 Nile Felucca

Admire the scenery on an optional morning camel ride, then board a felucca for an aquatic adventure on the Nile. Set sail in the afternoon and watch the world go by on this relaxing journey. At night, sleep on deck under a canopy of stars.

Days 5-7 Luxor

Stop off at Kom Ombo to view the amazingly well-preserved temple inscriptions and hieroglyphics, before boarding a minibus bound for Luxor. This ancient city houses some of the greatest ancient monuments in the world, and an afternoon visit to the impressive Temples of Karnak provides ample opportunity to uncover more Egyptian history. The next morning, perhaps embark on an optional morning balloon ride to witness breathtaking sunrise panoramas. Afterwards, travel by donkey through villages on the West Bank to see local daily life in action. Continue to the Valley of the Kings to visit the tombs of pharoahs, then use free time to see more of Luxor's hidden gems.
