Setting sail from Cairo

We love this noisy, dusty, busy city. Expect a warm welcome everywhere you go - Egypt goes through hard times so often that its tourism industry suffers a constant roller-coaster ride of highs and lows. More or less everyone has a financial interest in ensuring tourists continue to visit, and the country, and Cairo itself, really has so much to offer. The highlight of your stay may well be the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, but don't neglect a visit to the Egyptian Museum, which has a truly stupendous collection of ancient artefacts, including the Tutankhamen treasures.

Our tip

Go for the VIP meet and assist on arrival at Cairo airport – money well spent for a totally relaxing start.

Arriving in Luxor

Prepare to be amazed - the thin belt of greenery along the banks of the Nile in Upper Egypt gives Luxor a lush setting for an extraordinary collection of tombs, temple complexes and stone structures that hint at the magnificence of this former Ancient Egyptian capital. The modern city on the East Bank is home to the traditional bazaar, with a stunning view of the Nile, whilst on the west bank you will find the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens, and visit amazing necropolis and mortuary temples.

Don't miss

The Temple of Luxor with its extraordinary history. Return at night for a memorable sound and light show.
