Tailor-made itinerary for

The Great Egypt Tour

November 2015







November 5th – November 12th, 2015. I have taken into consideration the amount of time for which you have to see and do as much as possible. Your travel options will be booked to give you the most cultural experiences possible.


You will find that the cost of living in Egypt is very low. However, with many low-budget destinations, there are always the more luxurious options to add into your package, as you require.

Your Trip

You will travel by train from Cairo to Aswan. This will take approximately fourteen hours but it is a fantastic experience for you to add to your Egypt trip.


Once in Aswan, you will make your way to the luxury boat and become acquainted with the town. After relaxing, you will be able to spend time seeing the local sights of Aswan.


You will then take a very prestigious Nile Cruise up to Luxor where you can visit the Valley of the Kings and Tutankhamen’s very own tomb. After spending several days in Luxor, as part of the cruise, and on your own, you will return to Cairo.




We will be traveling on a 5* Nile Cruise ship, complete with rooftop swimming pool, bar and fitness centre.

In Luxor, we will be staying in a hotel with a 9.2 rating on

If the original accommodation is not available at the time of booking, similar will be booked. The cruise price is non-changeable.



Following, is the detailed breakdown of all flight, cruise and accommodation costs.
