The Gods Of Egypt trip starts and ends in Cairo. It is an explorer trip that takes 10 days taking you through Sphinx, Hurghada, Cairo and 5 other destinations in Egypt. Gods Of Egypt is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This 10-day Egypt tour features all the main Pharaonic highlights in Cairo and the Nile Valley as well as including a luxury Nile river cruise and some time by the Red Sea at Hurghada. We start in Cairo with tours of the Pyramids and Sphinx at Gisa, and the world famous Egyptian Museum which has a huge collection of ancient artefacts including of course, the King Tutankhamun display.

Next, we take an internal flight south to Aswan, where the Nile is at its most picturesque. We'll explore a local Nubian village and take a boat trip to the beautiful island temple of Philae. You also have the option to visit the amazing temples to Abu Simbel which were dismantled and rebuilt when Lake Nasser was flooded. We leave Aswan on one of Nile's famous luxury cruise boats. You'll enjoy a comfortable en-suite cabin with panoramic windows, a restaurant, lounge and bar, and a large sun deck with another bar, recliners and a plunge pool.

The cruise takes us north via the temples at Edfu and Komombo to Luxor, considered by many as the world's finest and largest outdoor museum. There are a huge number of ancient sites to see here, and we'll tour both the east and west banks of the Nile. Sites visited include underground Pharaonic tombs in the Valley of the Kings, Queen Hatchepsut and Medinat Habu temples, and the immense Collosi of Memnon. We also tour the huge temple complex at Karnak and see Luxor temple beautifully lit up at night.

We leave the Nile Valley now and head to the Red Sea coast at Hurghada for some welcome rest and relaxation in a 5-star beach resort. The snorkelling and scuba diving in Hurghada is excellent and there are many other watersports available too, or you can just relax by the beach. If you wish you can extend your time here, or return back to Cairo with the rest of the group. The tour ends with a walking tour through the back streets of the Khan-el-Khalili bazaar and Islamic Cairo.
