Start in Cairo and end in Luxor, the Egypt: Alexandria To Aswan trip is a guided adventure trip that takes 13 days. You will travel through Alexandria, Edfu, Luxor and 7 other destinations in Egypt. Egypt: Alexandria To Aswan is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Few countries can rival Egypt’s wealth of magnificent archaeological sites, with the Pyramids and Great Sphinx of Giza ranking as two of the most recognisable in the world. It is a place like no other and on this two-week itinerary we explore its treasures across the length of the country. In the north there is the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria and El Alamein, the site of the famous Second World War battle. Cairo’s attractions are world famous but on this itinerary we also experience the bazaars and culinary delights on a food tour. Journeying south by sleeper train we reach the Nubian city of Aswan where we board our Nile cruise boat and discover the monuments and temples all the way to Luxor.

“An amazing, action packed holiday. The trip to the Amazon, where we saw monkeys, sloths, caiman and many bird and insect species and a tarantula (the latter a bit too close to our accommodation for our liking!) was really good, but the highlight has to be the Inca Trail for absolutely spectacular views and the sense of achievement.”

“Very well organised, great team, good support and helpful advises before trip. Team based in Nepal absolutely brilliant. Everybody very cheerful and helpful. Bit more difficult email correspondence. Took ages to get any response. Country one of most beautiful on the planet. Unbelievable forests, great views and of course all in Nepali Flat :) I highly recommend that place and this company to everyone.”

“A wonderful holiday based in the beautiful, remote, rural village of Magura. The village is accessed via a long, winding unmade road so get used to a bumpy ride. If you get out of the van immediately after you leave the tarmac it will take approximately 45 - 50 minutes to walk up hill to Villa Hermani through the woods - follow the bright pink paint splodges on rocks or trees. Transylvania is like stepping back in time, where local people still travel via horse and cart and cut hay with scythes, although they will be on their mobiles as mobile signals, 3 & 4G and WiFi are readily available. Romania is home to many European brown bears and seeing them from a hide in the forest was one of the highlights of our trip. In addition to the walking there is a visit to Bran Castle which was given to Queen Maria of Romania in 1918, and to the delightful city of Brasov.”
