A Few Examples of Ideal Luxury Egypt Trips
To get a better idea of just how amazing luxury trips to Egypt might be, let’s take the time to look at a few of them.
Luxury Nile Cruise and Stay – 15 Days of Exploration and Sailing
This journey of more than two weeks in length begins where any of the best Egypt vacations in 2019 should begin – gorgeous and historic Cairo. Arrive to a full greeting and escort to your 5-star hotel. Settle in and relax to prepare for your first day of travel beginning the next morning. Take in the sites of Cairo and its environs, including the Giza Plateau, the Egyptian Museum, Coptic Cairo with its famous Hanging Church, and the even more famous El Khalili Bazaar which dates to the medieval period.
From Cairo, you can travel northward to sites like Alamein outside of Alexandria, where a visit to a World War II Museum and a tour of the site of the final battle of the entire war occurred. You will enjoy ocean views and a trip towards the famous Old City of Siwa, home to a stunning and historic oasis. In Siwa, travelers can see temples, a famous spring, a museum and stunning scenery. Travel across the desert via 4×4 to another oasis, the Bahariya Oasis, where many luxury Egypt vacations in 2019 are sure to focus. This is because it is a site of constant discovery and home to the Museum of the Golden Mummies as well as other archaeological sites. You will cross the famed White Desert and the equally famous Black Desert, paying visits to Crystal Mountain before setting up your desert camp that evening.
Your next day takes you to Dakhla, stopping at hot springs and the Farafra Oasis along the way. Visit an ancient Roman temple and depart the next morning for another oasis, this one at Kharga. Here you see a Roman fortress and make your way to several Roman temples. After a final desert camping experience, you reach Luxor and it is from here your luxury cruise begins. Take a tour of the town and Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings.
Set sail the next day towards Edfu, stopping at sites like Kom Ombo before reaching famed Aswan. Spend time visiting Aswan’s many sites, including the dam and the Unfinished Obelisk before finishing up your luxury tour and returning to Cairo or continuing with a Lake Nasser cruise and visit to Abu Simbel.
Cairo Sightseeing and Luxury Dahabiya Nile Cruise
Of course, you may prefer to take things a bit more slowly and even more luxuriously, and there is little that can compare to the slow pace and utter comfort of a traditional 12-day dahabiya cruise and Cairo sightseeing.
A journey of this kind would also begin in Cairo and include a tour of the city and its surroundings, but on this sort of trip, you would focus a great deal on the historic sites along the river’s banks. This could mean daytrips from Cairo to sites like Memphis and Saqqara, home to the oldest of all pyramids, the famed Step Pyramid. You would also see Giza and the city before boarding your dahabiya to begin the journey up the river.
Stops would include Karnak, Luxor and the West Bank sites that include the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens and Deir El-Bahri. You would sail towards Esna and make other stops at Edfu, Kom Ombo and then on to Aswan. You could opt to fly back to Cairo or continue with a cruise along Lake Nasser’s waters where many other historic sites, including Abu Simbel await.
