Trip Itinerary

Detailed Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival

Welcome to Cairo! Your tour begins when you are greeted by our representative who will assist you through immigration and customs formalities. After you have collected your luggage he will then take you, in our deluxe vehicle, to your Cairo hotel.


Day 02: Cairo

Breakfast at the hotel is followed by a full day tour. In the morning you will be taken to see the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx: the most famous monuments of not only ancient Egypt, but of the entire ancient world! These massive stone structures were built around 4,500 years ago on a rocky desert plateau close to the Nile. After the visit, you will be driven to the Papyrus Institute where you will see how the ancient Egyptians made this forerunner to today’s paper; have a go at making it yourself; and get the opportunity to look at some fantastic examples of papyrus art, with no obligation to buy.

After lunch, at a local restaurant, you will be driven to Sakkara to see the very first pyramid ever built; the Step Pyramid of Djoser. You will also get the chance to see some fantastic mastabas, including the mastaba of Mereruka, the largest one built in ancient Egypt. You will then be able to marvel at the Pyramid Texts inside the Pyramid of Teti before heading off to the ancient capital of Egypt: Memphis. The Colossus of Ramses II dominates the museum here!

After this amazing trip through Egypt’s pharaonic past you will be driven back to your hotel.


Day 03: Bahariya Oasis

After breakfast it is time to set off on your Oasis safari in our air-conditioned 4X4 vehicles. You will first of all head to the Bahariya Oasis, stopping en route to visit the village of El-Bawiti, to see the remains of a Roman triumphal arch and two temples (one dating to the reign of the Late Kingdom pharaoh Apries (589-570 BCE) and the other to the time of Alexander the Great). From here it is a short drive to see the valley of the Golden Mummies before arriving at El-Qasr, the capital of Bahariya in the Pharaonic periods. After lunch the journey continues through Ain El-Bishmu, to see the Roman spring, and Ain El-Muftillah to see the chapels. In the mid to late afternoon it will be time to stop and make camp; yes tonight will be under canvas, all camping equipment supplied, and erected, by us.


Day 04: Bahariya Oasis And The White Desert

After breakfast it will be time to pack away all the camping equipment and head to the district of Hayz (35 km from El-Bawiti), which was a very prosperous area during the Roman period. After lunch you will drive to the White Desert, a paradise for rock hounds and amateur geologists, with its impressive limestone formations shaped like giant mushrooms or animals. Once again, camp will be set up in the mid to late afternoon.


Day 05: Farafra And Dakhla 

After breakfast, and the dismantling of the camping equipment again, you will have a short drive to Farafra Oasis where you will visit the village of Qasr El-Farafra to see its quaint museum of local art. You will then head towards the Dakhla Oasis, with a lunch break en route, to visit El Qasr, the old capital of the Oasis, with its picturesque ancient Islamic buildings built over the foundations of a Roman city. No camping tonight, you will check-in to a hotel in the Dakhla Oasis.


Day 06: Kharga Oasis

After breakfast you will drive to El-Muzawaqa and its frescoes, which are over 300 tombs dating back to the first & second century, decorated with colourful wall paintings. You will then continue onto the Kharga Oasis, with a break for lunch en route, visiting the villages of Balat and Bashandi. You will then check-in to a hotel in the Kharga Oasis.

Day 08: Luxor

After breakfast it will be time to leave the Western Desert and you will drive directly to Luxor, checking in to your hotel upon arrival. The rest of the day is free to do what you wish, though

After this visit to the Theban “City of the Dead” you will be taken back to your boat for your lunch, and then you can watch as it departs Luxor and sails for Esna. As the Nile flows gently underneath you, dinner will be served.


Day 11: Nile Cruise: Edfu And Kom Ombo 

You can enjoy your breakfast watching as the cruise boat crosses the Esna lock then sails onward to Edfu, home of the best preserved temple in Egypt: the Temple of Horus. Your guide will then return you to your cruise boat for dinner as the boat sails majestically towards Kom Ombo.
