Start in Cairo and end in Luxor, the "Egypt: Alexandria To Aswan" tour is a guided adventure tour that takes 13 days. You will travel through Philae Temple, Edfu, Cairo and 7 other destinations in Egypt. "Egypt: Alexandria To Aswan" is a small group tour 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.

Fabulous sights from the Ancient World and a chance to glimpse modern Egypt
“Brilliant glimpses into the ancient world with access to many fantastic sights. As with most Exodus trips it is often full on with some early starts, but these do pay dividends. The tour party, at 20. was probably too big as you travel as fast as the slowest person on the trip. Accommodation was mostly good with a couple of more modest places, but locations were always excellent.I personally could have done without the trip to Alexandria which didn't compare to having had more time in the amazing Cairo museum.”

Wonders of Egypt
“This trip offered a wide variety of experiences along the length of the River Nile.The trip was very well organised and Andrew our guide was extremely knowledgable and helpful.The trip was full on with many early morning starts. Take extra money for the add on activities as without them the holiday would not have been so exiting.Be aware of extra charges at some of the sites such as a camera tax.In my opinion the group size was too large and made it difficult to hear the guide at some sites that were always crowded.However the chemistry of the group was excellent and I very much enjoyed everyones company.Accommodation throughout the trip was satisfactory to excellent.The Nile cruise experience was something Ill never forget, but the highlights of the trip were the astounding places we visited.My favourite was the Valley of the Kings that simply blew my mind away.I left this holiday with a feel good factor and my only regret is that we didnt have more free time especially in the Cairo Museum.”

Fantastic Trip
“I was blown away by the history of Egypt and how ancient the civilisation is. This trip gives an excellent overview from the first pyramids to the time of Cleopatra with a bit of 20th century thrown in. The biggest surprise for me was the Egyptians who I found to be very friendly (but excellent salesmen). Our guide was superb and I felt very safe throughout the trip. Choose your time carefully because of the heat but I strongly recommend Egypt. It is one of the few trips I was not ready to come home from.”

Egypt Ancient and Modern
“A fascinating, informative, and very enjoyable tour with the chance to dress up thrown in for good measure! As with all Exodus trips we had some early starts and long days with now wasted time in between. If you want to see a lot of Egypt and experience its history from ancient times through to the modern day then this is the trip to take.”
