Cairo, Alexandria and a Nile Cruise


VIP Home Departure Service

UK - Cairo

Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Cairo. Upon arrival, we transfer to our hotel.

Swiss Inn Pyramids Hotel, Cairo (4T)


Sphinx

Giza

Fifteen minutes’ drive from our hotel stand the extraordinary Pyramids of Giza, the last surviving wonder of the ancient world. Mystery still surrounds their exact purpose, the construction methods and the baffling 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 on.


Saladin Citadel

Cairo

At leisure in Cairo, with the opportunity to join one of the locally-guided optional excursions to the Egyptian Museum and Citadel.


Alexandria

Alexandria

A full-day excursion reveals the treasures of Alexandria. Egypt’s attractive Mediterranean port city was founded by Alexander the Great and the power base of Cleopatra, whose royal palace now lies submerged in the bay. This was also the location of the legendary Pharos Lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the lost Library of Alexandria, the largest in the ancient world. We make stops at Pompey’s Pillar and the Roman amphitheatre, and enjoy some free time to wander the lively Corniche.


Day 5 - Cairo - Luxor

We transfer to the airport for a flight to Luxor, transferring upon arrival to our comfortable Presidential Nile Cruises vessel.

Hatshepsut temple

Day 6 - Luxor - Edfu

At the ‘open-air museum’ of Luxor, the number and preservation of ancient monuments is unparalleled. This is the site of the famous city of Thebes, capital of Egypt at the height of the empire’s influence. We head out to explore the West Bank, beginning at the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings, where pharaohs were buried from the 16th-11th centuries BC. Our guide introduces a few of the most impressive tombs and you may also choose to enter the plainer, ‘cursed’ Tomb of Tutankhamun (extra charge). We also visit the Valley of the Queens, the impressive mortuary temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon, before returning to the ship. We sail to Edfu.

Day 7 - Edfu - Kom Ombo - Aswan

There can be few more serene and romantic ways of passing time than gliding down the Nile on a river cruiser. We sail to the fascinating Greco-Roman double-temple of Kom Ombo, dedicated to the falcon-headed Horus and Sobek, the crocodile god. We return to the ship, ready to set sail southwards to Aswan.

Day 8 - Aswan - Temple of Philae

Today pays tribute to ancient and modern feats of architectural engineering, with visits to the 111m-high Aswan High Dam and the Temple of Philae, perhaps Egypt’s most beguiling and beautiful, not least for its setting on an island in the river. We also take in the Nubian Museum, a stunning showcase of Nubia’s history, art and culture, including horse armour.
