FOLLOW IN CLEOPATRA’S FOOTSTEPS!
Kick off in Cairo and visit the phenomenal pyramids of Giza and the inscrutable Sphinx, the planet’s oldest tourist attractions. Then it’s the overnight sleeper train to Aswan, followed by a boat trip to the romantic Philae temple and the legendary Saqqara pyramids. Next day you’ll board your Nile felucca for a two-night voyage down the river, visiting the Temple of Kom Ombo before driving north to Luxor, where the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Karnak will take your breath away. This is ancient Egypt at its best. You’ll return by overnight sleeper train to Cairo; the next day you’ll visit the Egyptian Museum, famed for the treasures of king Tutankhamun. Spend the day exploring or shopping in the souqs of Cairo before heading home the following day.
THE TRAVEL DETAILS
THE PRIZE INCLUDES Breakfast daily; four nights in 4–5 star hotels in Cairo and Aswan; two nights with dinner and breakfast in first-class sleeper cabins on overnight trains; two nights and all meals aboard a felucca – a simple, traditional Egyptian sailboat that can carry between eight and 12 passengers; airport-arrival and -departure transfers in Cairo. All relevant transfers and transportation will be provided in private, modern air-conditioned vehicles. You will also be escorted by a professional Egyptian tour guide.
