Detailed Description

Egypt loves to surprise. Everyone knows of the pyramids, yet few can explain the feeling of being alone beneath 130 meters of stepped rock. Preconceptions suggest that Cairo is a city of bustle and chaos, which makes the enchanting atmosphere of Giza and Coptic Cairo even more enduring. A legendary name like King Tutankhamen is quick to roll off the tongue, but it can only be understood when you’re admiring the hieroglyphs of the boy king’s tomb. This is a country known for the desert, yet one that offers sublime waterfront escapes, both on a Nile River cruise and along the mystical Red Sea. It’s the surprise and atmosphere that makes Egypt such a resplendent destination. And discovering the surprise comes effortlessly when you have private guides and handpicked five-star residences.

This exclusive 12-day tour celebrates Egypt’s many angles, immersing you in a unique ambiance that goes beyond the country’s sights. You’ll intimately discover all the legendary historical highlights: the Great Pyramids of Giza, Memphis, Aswan, the Valley of the Kings, Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple, and King Tutankhamen’s Tomb. Private Egyptologist guides immerse you in history and ensure the experience isn’t shared with crowds of other tourists. Along the way, you’ll uncover a surprising, lesser-known heritage, such as the markets of Coptic Cairo and botanical gardens on the Nile River. Consider learning more about the Egypt travel agents whom we partner with, who seek to provide a personalized Egypt experience just for you. 

The first week is about discovery and exploration, starting with a five-star hotel overlooking the pyramids. The next few days are spent on a luxury cruise from Aswan to Luxor, a calming way to travel that keeps you energized for all the historical sights. Watching the riverbanks unfold is one of Egypt’s most serene highlights. After the world’s greatest open-air museum, you’re back in Cairo, where ancient neighborhoods take you on another relaxed journey into icons and legends.

Then fly to the coast to your decadent boutique resort with an adult-only policy and a tranquil private beach. The exclusive wing of the larger Savoy Shark El Sheikh, your opulent accommodation is unashamedly luxurious, and your deluxe villa has its own pool and garden. Five nights here provide classical notions of escapism as you unwind from the historical highlights and enjoy languid days in the sun.
