Experience all this and so much more with Luxury Escapes’ Nine-Day Tour.
At the heart of the Nile River is the capital Cairo, whose claim to fame is the Great Pyramids. Still standing tall after a thousand years, the Great Pyramid of Giza is a stony wonder and one of the oldest of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Of course, the most iconic sight of Egypt is the Great Sphinx, a statue of a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human. Cairo is also home to the colossal Egyptian Museum, a sprawling complex full of ancient Egyptian antiquities.
If it’s Egypt, there has to be talk of Mummies and cursed tombs. Visit the world-famous Valley of Kings, a royal burial ground for pharaohs such as Tutankhamun and other elite members of the Egyptian dynasties. Set in the middle of the desert, head underground into these eerie tombs and temples that will send a chill down your spine.
For those who like to take the offbeat path, Luxor beckons — located bang in the middle of the East and West Bank of the River, Luxor is often referred to as the world’s greatest open-air museum.
If you thought Egypt was only full of ancient history, think again. Bordering the magnificent Red Sea, the beach resort town of Hurghada is a must-visit. Home to some of the world’s most stunning coral reefs, Hurghada is the perfect place to do some snorkelling and scuba diving.
To explore Egypt in more detail, don’t miss out on Aswan, the southern frontier of pharaonic Egypt. The abundant quarries of Aswan used to supply granite for ancient Egypt’s stunning tombs and pyramids. Here, the picture-perfect Nile meanders through granite rocks and palm grove-fringed islands. Visit the age-old Philae Temple Complex, which is home to the famed Temple of Isis. Further down the river, you will stumble upon Elephantine Island, which has the Temple of Khnum.
Take a trip back in time in Egypt, a land brimming with priceless treasures, vibrant landscapes and a timeless history.
