Overview

  • Discover Egypt’s captivating pharaonic history through an exciting tour across the country over river. This cheaper alternative to our popular Egypt by Air tour features the same activities, but you’ll do some traveling via sleeper train instead of taking domestic flights. You’ll visit the Great Pyramids and witness the astounding beauty of the last remaining of the original seven wonders of the ancient world. After exploring the majesty of Cairo’s past and present, you’ll board a sleeper train headed southward to Aswan. A luxury cruise ship awaits you, and you’ll witness the monuments and natural beauty of southern Egypt in style. Spend three days sailing and sightseeing between Aswan and Luxor before heading back to Cairo via train.
