Capture the spirit of Egypt’s epic history on this spectacular fully-escorted tour, combining an enthralling odyssey along the mighty Nile with a visit to it’s spellbinding capital, Cairo, and the world famous Pyramids of Giza. Relax in Mediterranean Alexandria, enjoy Nubian delights in the sun-soaked paradise of Aswan and discover unparalleled archaeological treasures in Luxor on a host of enlightening and included excursions. Our superb 7-night Nile cruise is a further holiday highlight, presenting Egypt’s iconic river in its most attractive light.
15 minutes’ drive from our hotel are the extraordinary Pyramids of Giza, last surviving wonder of the ancient world, more than 4,500 years after their completion. Mystery still surrounds the pyramids’ exact purpose, construction methods and the baffl ing accuracy of measurement, alignment and workmanship that they demonstrate. Our Egyptologist guide will explain what is known as we admire the ‘Great Pyramid’ of Khufu, comprising some two million colossal blocks of stone, the Pyramid of Khafre and the third, smaller Pyramid of Khephren. Nearby, the majestic Sphinx looks enigmatically on.
