Day 1 Cairo, Egypt

Touch down, be whisked to your hotel then kick that body clock into overdrive with Cairo's nocturnal lifestyle. Shopping at 2am? Why not. But first, get to know your crew at tonight's welcome meeting.

Included activities:
-Airport transfer

Day 2 Cairo to Aswan via Overnight Coach

Khan el Khalili market not only drips with silver lanterns, scarab pendants and incense, it's cloaked in ancient history. The site was originally a mausoleum dating back to 970AD known as the Saffron Tomb. Some of the people playing backgammon at Fishawi's could very well have been in the same spot since then. Then tick off Coptic Cairo and the famous step pyramid in Saqqara.

Included activities:
-Saqqara pyramid
-Coptic Cairo
-Khan el-Khalili market

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 3 Aswan

There's no crappy Enya soundtrack or polo-and-deck-shoes uniform required when you're sailing on the world's longest river. Just a gorgeous old felucca, the breeze in its cotton sails, before getting up close and personal with the Nubians who have called this place home for thousands of years. (B)

Included activities:
-Short felucca ride
-Nubian village visit

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Camel ride
-Nubian dinner

Day 4 Aswan

The Nile is so badass, it takes down everything in its path. Which is why Abu Simbel temple was sliced into 1,015 pieces and relocated in the '60s. Don't worry, Pharaoh Ramesses II, you're still looking good. All four of you.

Included activities:
-Abu Simbel

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Philae Temple & Nile High Dam

Day 5 Aswan to Luxor

Start the day on a Luxor note with a visit to two temples and plenty of time to soak up the world's largest open-air museum of temples and tombs. The writing's on the wall… but that's a good thing here.

Included activities:
-Karnak & Luxor temples

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 6 Luxor to Cairo via Overnight Coach

Get down and deity on a guided tour through the Valley of the Kings where anyone who was anyone was wrapped and packed for all eternity, including King Tut. Then tick off the Temple of Hatshepsut and the two imposing statues comprising Colossi of Memnon. All in a day's work.

How do you use an ancient Egyptian doorbell? Toot-and-come-in! Yeah. We went there. Check out King Tutankhamen's treasures (amongst 160,000 relics and mummified remains) at the Egyptian Museum then snap your Sphinx and pyramid selfie in Giza.

-Breakfast

Day 9 Dahab

Four days, coastal vibes, perfect kite-surfing conditions and camels - welcome to Dahab. Snorkel, swim or just soak up the beauty of the Blue Hole.

Another day in paradise awaits you. Gear up for an eye-opening dive exploration, snare yourself a bargain at the village shops, or alternatively, do nothing at all. It's your vaycay.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 11 Dahab

Fancy a seafood feast, fit for a sheikh? Satiate your appetite with a drool-inducing seafood feast at one of the many beachside restaurants in this superb seaside town. When your tummy is well and truly full, head back to the beach, where your toughest decision will be whether to doze or dip.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 12 Dahab

When you get bored of sun, swimming and snorkelling, don your comfiest hiking shoes and make your way to the top of Mount Sinai for a tequila holy sunrise and mingle with the monks at St Catherine's Monastery, where history can be traced back 17 centuries. Then, saddle up for a camel ride or sate your inner Indiana Jones exploring the desert by a more mechanical steed (aka quad bike).

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 13 Dahab to Jerusalem, Israel

Cross the Israeli border into the holy land for a salty dip. Sitting at 427 metres below sea level, 306 metres deep with 9.6 times the salinity of the ocean, the Dead Sea will float your boat body. You can't fight it; it's science.

Included activities:
-Dead Sea

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 14 Jerusalem

This is the definition of 'soul-stirring' - at just one square kilometre in size, the Old City jams in 4000 years of history and a trifecta of Jewish, Muslim and Christian sacred sites. See the Wailing Wall walk the Via Dolorosa to the Golgotha (where Jesus was crucified) and then head to Mount Zion to see King David's tomb.

Included activities:
-Old Jerusalem city tour

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 15 Jerusalem to Amman, Jordan via Bethlehem

You don't need flowers to pay your respects at the Mount of Olives - a stone placed on top of a tomb will let them know you stopped by.
