Highlights of Cairo in Comfort and Style
No matter which of these tour packages you choose, your itinerary is going to include a brief stay in Cairo. This is because experience has taught us that most travelers, and especially those who are visiting the Land of the Pharaohs for the first time, want to see some of the sites that are located in and around Cairo. After all, everybody who travels to the country wants to see the famous Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx which are located on the outskirts of Cairo.
Our tour itineraries typically also feature a visit to places like the Egyptian Museum and the vibrant Khan el Khalili Bazaar which has been around ever since the 14th century. This is one of the biggest and oldest bazaars in the entire Middle East. It is extremely popular among everyday Egyptians living in Cairo, and it is always a big hit with travelers as well.
Of course, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is another firm favorite among travelers visiting Cairo. At the time of this being written, the museum was home to well over 100,000 ancient Egyptian artifacts. These included all the priceless relics and treasures that were recovered from King Tutankhamun’s tomb when it was discovered in the Valley of Kings near modern-day Luxor.
A large proportion of the museum’s existing collection will however be moved to the all-new Grand Egyptian Museum at Giza. The new Grand Egyptian Museum will be the biggest and only museum devoted entirely to a single culture/civilization.
Most of our tour packages will also include a visit to Memphis and a visit to an ancient royal necropolis at Saqqara. This particular necropolis is most famous for its Step Pyramid which belonged to Pharaoh Djozer. This was the very first pyramid ever built by the ancient Egyptians. When the Giza Pyramids near Cairo were built, the Step Pyramid would itself already have been ancient.
All tours in Cairo are private guided tours. You will have your own English speaking Egyptologist tour guide and your own personal driver. Together, they will make sure that your tours in Cairo are as comfortable and as rewarding as they possibly can be. It goes without saying that our clients are picked up from their hotels, usually shortly after breakfast, then dropped off back at their hotels after their sightseeing tours.
Aswan to Luxor Sightseeing
Some of the coutry’s most cherished ancient monuments are located along the banks of the Nile River between Aswan and Luxor. When you book your Egypt tour and cruise through us, you can count on seeing several of these timeless wonders. We only partner with the very best 5-Star cruise ship operators, so you will be sailing along this mighty river in absolute comfort and style on board a vessel which is quite literally like a floating hotel.
When we have booked client onto a cruise, we also book one of our guides onto the same cruise. He or she will then be your tour guide during your cruise, and will accompany you to all the various sites you visit. These will typically be small group tours, assuming that we also other clients booked onto the same cruise as you. Let’s take a look at some of the breathtaking sites you can look forward to visiting during your days on the water:
Aswan is probably no match for Luxor in terms of ancient monuments, but there are a few interesting this to see, and besides, just about every cruise either begins or ends in Aswan. If you have booked your trip through us, your guide will take you to see three popular sites. Usually you will visit the Aswan High Dam first. This dam quite literally changed the face and future of Egypt. It also gave birth to Lake Nasser, one of the world’s largest man-made lakes.
After visiting the Aswan High Dam, you will then usually be taken to see the huge Unfinished Obelisk which is located in the ancient stone quarries. Queen Hatshepsut had commissioned what would have been the largest obelisk ever made. Unfortunately a crack appeared in the obelisk and the project was then abandoned. If it had been completed, it would most likely have ended up at Karnak Temple in Luxor.
Before you leave Aswan, you will also be taken to see the ancient Temple of Philae. It is hard to imagine that this ancient temple was completely dismantled and then reassembled at its current location. Had the temple not been moved, it would have vanished beneath the water of Lake Nasser following the completion of the Aswan High Dam. Depending on which tour you choose, you may visit Philae Temple by way of a small motor boat ride.
If your trip on the Nile ends in Aswan, you will be transferred to Aswan Airport at the appropriate time so that you can board a flight back to Cairo. Alternatively, if your chosen tour includes some time in Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada, you will head there instead of back to Cairo. On the other hand, if your journey along the Nile begins in Aswan, then your next stop will be at Kom Ombo or possibly Abu Simbel
Some of our tour itineraries include a trip to Abu Simbel to visit the breathtaking Abu Simbel Temples, while some of our other itineraries offer it as an optional extra. These two magnificent rock-cut temples were constructed for Pharaoh Ramses II and his wife, Queen Nefertari. The drive from Aswan to Abu Simbel takes approximately 4.5 hours but it is a trip well worth undertaking.
After leaving Aswan, your boat’s next stop will typically be at Kom Ombo. Here your guide to take you to see the remains of a very unique temple which today is known as Kom Ombo Temple. This was essentially a twin temple complex, with one side being identical to the other. One side was dedicated to Horus the falcon-headed god, while the other side was dedicated to Sobek the crocodile god. It believed to have been the only temple of its kind ever built by the Ancient Egyptians.
As you continue sailing towards Luxor, you will also stop at Edfu to see the beautiful Edfu Temple which is also known as the Temple of Horus. This temple is one of the biggest ancient temples in the country and also the best-preserved ancient temple. The temple was seized by the Romans who later abandoned it. With time, the entire complex became buried under the sand. It remained buried for more than 2,000 years, hence the reason for its remarkable level of preservation.
Luxor is truly a treasure trove as far as ancient sites are concerned. We can’t show all of them to you during you trip, but we will show you some of the very best ones. You can look forward to two tours in Luxor, one on the East Bank and one on the West Bank. During your East Bank tour your guide will take you to see Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple complex.
Unfortunately, history has not been kind to Karnak Temple, and today only ruins remain. Nonetheless, there is still plenty to see. A long line of pharaohs all added to the original site. By the time the last bit was added, the Karnak Temple complex had been growing for more than 2,000 years. It was and still is the biggest place of worship ever built.
When you visit the West Bank, your guide will typically take you to see three ancient sites: the Valley of Kings, the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut, and the Colossi of Memnon. The Valley of Kings is an ancient royal burial ground. More than 60 tombs were discovered here, including the tomb of King Tutankhamun. This is where royals and nobles were laid to rest during the New Kingdom era.
Most of the tombs were looted by tomb raiders in antiquity. In fact, Tutankhamun’s tomb is one of the only tombs that were found still sealed and intact. It is believed that his tomb had been entered at some point after his death but it wasn’t looted. Several of the tombs are now open to visitors. Basic tickets allow you to enter certain tombs but not those that have been designated as “special” tombs.
Tickets for the “special tombs, including the tomb of King Tutankhamun can only be purchased in person at the site. This is done to prevent certain tour operators from buying large amounts of tickets for their clients, bearing in mind that only a certain amount of tickets are sold each day for some of the tombs.
Your visit to Hatshepsut Temple will be another highlight of your trip. It is without question the most breathtaking ancient temple ever discovered in the country. Hatshepsut wanted her mortuary temple to be the biggest and grandest temple, and one that sent a clear message out to all who she ruled over. Her temple delivered on all fronts. It is today considered to be one of the Incomparable Monuments of Ancient Egypt.
If you have booked one of our multi-country Egypt tour bundles, and if your trip along the Nile ends in Luxor, you will then be transferred to Luxor Airport after you Luxor tours, and you will then fly back to Cairo where you will usually spend one night in a hotel before you leave Egypt to visit your next destination.
