DAY 1 – Arrival in Cairo

Upon arrival at Cairo International Airport, your adventure begins with a warm welcome from your Secret of Egypt tour leader, who will accompany you to your well-appointed hotel in comfort.

After check-in, the tour manager will review your tour itinerary, confirming departure times from the hotel. Then you will be free to enjoy your time as you like. Your tour manager will be happy to make any recommendations for things to do near your hotel in case you would like to explore on your own.

DAY 2 – The Best of Cairo Sightseeing Tour

After breakfast at the hotel, your first stop will be the world-renowned Pyramids of Giza, Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus, as well as the Sphinx and the lesser known yet intriguing Valley Temple, which is situated so that it faces the great monument. The largest of the Giza pyramids, The Great Pyramid, is the only one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World that is still standing.

Next your tour guide will take you to the incredible Egyptian Museum near downtown’s newly renovated Tahrir Square. Your tour guide will guide you through the many rooms full of tens of thousands of ancient artifacts on display.

The Treasures Room is surely one of the most spectacular highlights of the museum. King Tutankhamun’s sealed tomb was first entered in the early 20th century and found fully intact, including all the incredible artifacts buried with him to take to the afterlife.

After a full morning at the Giza Pyramid Complex and the Egyptian Museum, you will enjoy a lovely lunch at a nearby restaurant. Take the opportunity to rest and refuel for the afternoon’s adventures.

Next stop will be the area known as Coptic Cairo where you will visit the Hanging Church of Cairo and the interesting Ben Ezra Synagogue.

The last stop of the day will be in Islamic Cairo and the colorful and historic Khan El Khalili Bazaar. This area of Cairo is widely agreed to be a must-see when visiting Egypt. The bazaar, in existence since the 14th century, consists of narrow streets and enchanting cafes and shops full of keepsakes. Shop if you like, but if not, you won’t be disappointed exploring this charming part of Cairo.

Once finished at Khan El Khalili, you will head back to the hotel for an evening of relaxation or of more free-time exploration of the city that Never Sleeps after sunset if you like.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

DAY 3 – Arrival in Luxor and Boarding for the Nile Cruise

You’ll awake and enjoy a lovely breakfast at the hotel before your tour guide will greet you and escort you to the Cairo International Airport for your short flight to Luxor.

A friendly and knowledgeable tour leader from Secret of Egypt will greet you at the Luxor Airport and will escort you to the luxury Nile River cruiser that you will call home for the 6 days. Enjoy a delectable lunch onboard and then relax and refresh yourself before afternoon tea is served while the cruiser embarks on the short sail to Esna.

A lovely cocktail party will be offered as a welcome from the captain, and dinner will be served shortly afterward. You will spend a quiet and peaceful night in your cabin while docked at Esna.

A luxurious breakfast on the river cruise followed by your choice of activities; either relax onboard the ship for the morning, or take a wonderful optional excursion to the incredible Abu Simbel Temple, which is about a 3-hour drive from Aswan. It is well worth the time and extra expense (not included in the tour package rate).

If you choose to stay onboard the ship, you are free to spend the day in Aswan as you wish. Tour guides onboard will be able to make suggestions of near-by destinations and interesting things to do in Aswan. Or you are free to just relax on the ship all day. Lunch and afternoon tea will be served as usual.

You will enjoy another 5-start dinner and relish the comfort of your cabin and your final night’s rest on the waters of Aswan.
