Egypt and Dubai Tours
Some people refer to Dubai and the City of Gold, while some call it a fake city or a city without a soul. It may be all of these and more, but it is also a city that never fails to mesmerize those who choose to visit. For those who have cash to splash, a trip to Dubai can be like a journey in an entirely different world. They city has a reputation of being beyond expensive, but there are many people who would disagree.
The number one reason why Dubai has a reputation of being so expensive is because there are just so many tempting opportunities to spend money on. Have you ever considered swimming among sharks? You don’t need to visit Australia or South Africa for that. Instead, just visit one of Dubai’s aquariums and enjoy a swim among the sharks, or even enjoy an underwater ride in a mini-submersible.
Need to escape from the heat? Just go skiing or snowboarding at Ski Dubai, or enjoy a day out at one of the city’s magnificent waterparks. Are you longing for a romantic dinner? A dinner cruise on Dubai Creek won’t disappoint you, or how about dinner at an underwater hotel?
Of course, our tour itineraries don’t include such activities unless you specifically request them. Instead, our tours are all about sightseeing and an authentic desert experience. If you book our 8-day Egypt and Dubai tour, you will spend three nights in Dubai, and then spend the remaining days of your tour in Egypt. Your second day in Dubai is devoted to sightseeing with an experienced English speaking guide, and while most of the third day is free, you will get to enjoy an afternoon desert safari trip and an awesome BBQ dinner under the stars with some local Bedouin.
Egypt and Turkey Tours
Our 8-day Egypt and Turkey tour package includes 4 nights and 4 days in Egypt with plenty of sightseeing and an optional day trip to Alexandria. The remaining 4 days and 3 nights are spent in Istanbul, Turkey. Turkey is a fantastic holiday destination. If you had more time, we would definitely take you to the Cappadocia region of the country for a few days. However, since you only have two full days for sightseeing, our goal is to show you some of Istanbul’s most cherished attractions.
When you arrive in Turkey, we will meet you at the airport and then transfer you to your hotel, after which you will be free to spend the remainder of the day as you wish. In the morning your guide and driver will fetch you for a tour of the city. Not surprisingly, your first stop will be a visit to the city’s most famous landmark, the magnificent Hagia Sophia that was originally built in 537 AD.
The Hagia Sophia was originally a church before later being converted into a mosque. Later still, it was converted into a museum, but has since been converted back into a mosque. Despite being a functioning mosque, the Hagia Sophia has remained open to visitors of all faiths.
During your tour today, you will also visit the breathtaking Blue Mosque, after which you will get to spend some time at the city’s famous Grand Bazaar. You will also visit a number of other impressive sites, including the famous Topkapi Palace.
The following day, you will again be picked up from your hotel and you will be taken for a short 1.5-hour cruise on the Bosphorus Straight. Most sightseeing will be done from a distance today, although you will be taken to visit the city’s famous spice market before returning to your hotel for the last night of your tour.
Sightseeing in the Land of the Pharaohs
Nearly all Egypt sightseeing tours begin in Cairo, the bustling Egyptian capital. Unless specifically stated otherwise, these are private tours. You will have your own personal English speaking Expert tour guide and your own driver. Our clients are picked up from their hotels in the morning and then returned to their hotels after their tours end.
Cairo Sightseeing Tours
While tour itineraries vary from one to the next, there are some sites and attractions which tend to be featured in almost all of our 8-day Egypt itineraries. These would include attractions such as the legendary Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx; the Egyptian Museum; the Khan el Khalili Bazaar, and quite often, also the Great Step Pyramid of Pharaoh Djozer and Saqqara.
Nile Cruise Sightseeing
Some of our Nile cruises begin in Luxor and end in Aswan, while others begin in Aswan and end in Luxor. All include full board and professionally guided tours and excursions. One or more of our guides actually sail with the vessels that we have clients on, and it is these guides who will accompany you on your tours.
Regardless of which direction you are sailing in, you will enjoy tours in Luxor, Edfu, Kom Ombo and Aswan. These are all small group tours that you share with a small number of our other clients if we happen to have other clients sailing on the same vessel as you.
In Luxor, we take you to the East Bank and the West Bank to see some of Egypt’s most famous and most cherished ancient monuments. During these tours, you can expect to see places like the massive Karnak Temple complex and Luxor Temple, both located on the East Bank. On the West Band we visit places like the Valley of Kings and the magnificent rock-cut mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut.
At Edfu we visit Egypt’s best-preserved ancient Egyptian temple, the Temple of Horus, also often called Edfu Temple. You will also most likely also visit Kom Ombo Temple. This is essentially two temples in one. One half was dedicated to Sobek the crocodile god while the other half was dedicated to Horus the falcon-headed god.
In Aswan, you are likely to visit the ancient stone quarries to see the Unfinished Obelisk. Other attractions which typically feature in our itineraries include the Aswan High Dam and the breathtaking ancient Temple of Philae.
Depending on which one of our 8-day Egypt itineraries you book, your tour many also include a trip to Abu Simbel to see the absolutely magnificent rock-cut Abu Simbel Temples. These two temples were commissioned by Pharaoh Ramses II who was also known as Pharaoh Ramses the Great. He had these to temples built to serve as functioning temples, and also to serve as lasting monuments of himself and his beloved wife, Queen Nefertari.
