This compact tour of Egypt is perfectly suited for families and children wanting a more active adventure. It combines a tour of the iconic Pyramids & Sphinx, the sprawling Egyptian Museum and ancient Pharaonic temples & tombs with some more active adventure such as a fun camel ride and a cruise on a traditional felucca sailboat. Our handpicked guides have great skills and experience guiding families with children, and we keep our group sizes small to ensure you get the most out of what we are sure will be a holiday of a lifetime.
Our adventure begins in Cairo with a tour of the iconic Pyramids and Sphinx, then we take time to explore the vast Egyptian Museum, and in particular the famous Tutankhamun exhibition and scary mummy room. From Cairo, we climb on board the sleeper train for an overnight ride along the Nile to the beautiful town of Aswan. Here we visit the island temple of Philae, visit a local school to interact with the children, and sample a traditional Nubian meal. Our next adventure is on board a traditional felucca sailboat as we float along the Nile, watching the local life unfold as we drift by. Arriving in Luxor we experience some creeping in the crypts with a visit the pharaonic tombs in the Valley of the Kings. We also marvel at the monumental Temple of Karnak before returning to Cairo on board the overnight sleeper train. We finish our great Egyptian adventure with a tour of the Cairo, including sprawling Khan-el-Kalili bazaar, before we head back to the airport for your flight home.
