The highlights of Egypt – Understand and explore Egypt’s most exciting legends with this suggested itinerary.

This captivating journey encompasses the major sights of Egypt and is ideal for those who seek a brief but comprehensive introduction to the ancient splendours of this endlessly fascinating country.

The journey begins in Egypt’s vibrant capital, Cairo, with its fine museum, which houses the treasures of Tutankhamun’s tomb, Great Pyramid and Sphinx, fine mosques and bustling bazaars. You then fly south to Luxor to board a luxury river vessel for a 5-day cruise on the River Nile.

Your voyage begins by exploring some of the country’s finest sights, including the imposing Aswan High Dam, the exquisite temple of Philae and the beautiful islands and cataracts of this delightful river-side resort of yesteryear. Continue your cruise past the impressive temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo, finishing up in Luxor, with the Temples of Ramses and Karnak, and the mausoleum of the Pharaohs on the West Bank of Luxor; once ancient Thebes and capital of Egypt for a thousand years. An overnight is included at the beautiful Old Winter Palace, where you can relax and reflect on your remarkable journey.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
