Over 13 days you will explore the secrets of Egypt on this comprehensive tour. Taking in the key historical sites of Cairo, including the Sphinx and Great Pyramid at Giza, you will then travel to Aswan to explore the beautiful and romantic temples of Philae and the impressive Aswan High Dam, leaving you time to also wander around the exciting souks and markets. There is an optional trip to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Abu Simbel to see the amazing temples built by Ramses II. Your traditional felucca cruise (with toilets, showers and massage deck) takes you down the Nile River, visiting key temples before arriving in Luxor where you will experience the incredible temples and world famous tombs of the Valley of the Kings and the impressive temple complex at Karnak, as well as the less visited Medinat Habu on the West Bank and the Colossi of Memnon. We then set off for some fun and relaxation by the sandy beaches of Hurghada on the Red Sea. Here you can scuba dive or snorkel, quad bike or kiteboard, windsurf or go fishing, and even ride a camel! It is your choice whether to then depart from Hurghada or travel back to Cairo.
