The Sights – Visit the famous sights of ancient Egypt

When you hear the word “Egypt”, images of ancient tombs, enormous pyramids, Pharaohs and rich cultural history come to mind — and that is exactly what you’ll get on this nine-day tour of one of the most fascinating and historically significant countries in the world.

Witness the magnificence of one of the Seven Wonders of the World with a trip to Cairo’s Great Pyramids. Built around 2,500 BC, the largest pyramid – Giza – is not only the oldest wonder of the world but also the only to have remained largely intact. Nearby lies the Great Sphinx of Giza, a limestone statue with the body of a lion and the head of a human, measuring a huge 73 metres from paw to tail.

Journey to the Valley of the Kings, the ancient royal burial ground for pharaohs such as Tutankhamun, and wander through the sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids and towering Pharaonic temples in this magical and expansive part of the desert.

The Cruise – Journey down the Nile River for three nights aboard a five-star cruise ship

Spend three luxurious nights floating down the longest river in the world on the MS Nile Quest and discover more of Egypt. Your cruise will make multiple stops during its journey, allowing you to disembark and explore the country by foot and motorcoach.

Cruise to Aswan, a southern Egyptian city famous for the High Dam, which has improved navigation across the Nile River since it was built in 1960. Enjoy an afternoon sail on an Egyptian felucca around two different islands and experience a traditional Mediterranean mode of transport.

Explore the city of Edfu and stop by Thebes, home to some of the richest treasures in the world, including the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Journey to the agricultural mecca of Kom Ombo and travel to the modern Egyptian village of Esna before heading back to Luxor and disembarking in Cairo.
