You will have the opportunity to climb down right inside the pyramids if you wish, though your guide cannot accompany you (a limited number of tickects are available for the Great Pyramid).
This evening we transfer to the station for the overnight sleeper train to Aswan (approx. 12 hours).
Overnight at Sleeper train Internal flight upgrade is available.
This morning we arrive in Aswan and transfer to our hotel overlooking the Nile. Our tours in Aswan start this afternoon with a visit the Temple of Philae, a beautiful island complex dedicated to Isis and reclaimed from the rising waters of Lake Nasser, which we reach by a scenic boat ride. We also stop to visit the huge Aswan Dam. The rest of the day is free.
If you are choosing the luxury Nile cruise upgrade in place of the felucca, then you will normally board your cruise boat today.
An option is available this morning to visit the temples built by Ramses II at the amazing UNESCO world heritage site of Abu Simbel. We board our traditional Nile felucca at lunchtime to enjoy an afternoon sailing down the Nile. Our Nubian crew will sail the boat and entertain you on the way, as well as preparing meals for you. Our seperate facilities boat will join with us from time to time during the day and moor up with us at night. This boat has a welcome toilet and showers on board as well as a hygienic kitchen where the crew will prepare a delicious evening meal. You sleep on the deck of the boat tonight (mattresses, blankets and mosquito nets provided). You can upgrade your upcoming felucca sailboat trip to a 3 night luxury Nile cruise, and in this case you'll spend your first night on board on Day 3 instead of in the hotel. All other touring remains the same.
Overnight on board felucca.
After breakfast on-board we bid farewell to our felucca crew and visit the nearby temples of Kom Ombo and Edfu before continuing on north to Luxor. After lunch we'll tour the huge temple complex at Karnak. Later this evening we'll take a walking tour of the smaller Luxor Temple which is right in the middle of town and beautifully lit up at night.
We cross the Nile early this morning to begin our tour of Luxor's West Bank. Our tour includes several of these Pharaonic tombs, as well as the temples of Queen Hatchepsut and Medinat Habu, and the huge Colossi of Memnon.A spectacular hot air ballon flight over the west bank of the Nile is available this morning (except an early start to catch sunrise as the balloon rises).
This afternoon we leave the Nile Valley and drive to the Red Sea resort of Hurghada where we check into a 4-star resort. Your stay here is on a 'soft all inclusive' basis, with all meals, soft drinks and snacks included but not alcoholic beverages.
Your day is free today to relax and enjoy your time by the Red Sea. Hurghada is world famous for its scuba diving and snorkelling. Other adventurous activities available include wind surfing and kite surfing, glass bottomed submarines, quad biking, camel rides and sea fishing trips. Our Local rep based in Hurghada will be on hand to help make any arrangements.
We fly back to Cairo this morning and you then have a choice of either a free day to explore or relax at your own leisure, or to take one of our optional additional tours.
These include a city tour which visits the narrow winding streets of Coptic Cairo, the impressice Citadel and Mohamed Ali Mosque as well as the bustling market streets of Khan El Khalili bazaar. Alternatively you could head to the outskirt of Cairo again to learn more about the history of pyramid building by visiting the early pyramids at Saqqara and Dashour, part of the ancient city of Memphis.
