Mysterious Egypt

We encourage custom trip planning, and we’ll work with you to make your time with us as good as it can be. We’ve assembled a few sample itineraries, to help get you started.   Please note that we can arrange with you any itinerary subject to your budget, just Contact Us


Egypt is and ever was a place of mystery. Many rumors spread around the great Pyramids of Gizeh (the only one of the seven wonders of the world left), their age ranges - in different theories - between 3,000 and even 12,000 years. Here, an old Egyptian is asked by his granddaughter about those mysteries of which we all heard in one way or the other. The action takes us to Howard Carter, who, after years and years of searching, finally found King Tutankhamen's (Tut-ench-Amun) grave in 1922. This was a major event in archaeology, as this grave was never robbed and therefore in the same condition as it was left (est.) 1339 B.C. We also get to see the Nile's wells and other historic landmarks that make Egypt an important part of world history


  These itineraries are just suggestions. We wanted to give you an idea of the variety to do in Egypt. Feel free to mix and match any activities. For reservation and more information Please Contact US












(Mysterious Egypt 1)

10 Days Cairo/Aswan/Kom Ombo/Edfu/Luxor/Hurghda/Sharm El Sheikh/Dahab




Day 1: Cairo - Pre Departure Meeting

Upon arrival at Cairo International airport you will be met by a Busabout representative (once you clear customs) who will arrange your airport shuttle. Soon you'll be in the middle of cars, trucks, buses, mopeds, donkeys and pedestrians as they fight for space on the busy roads. Once you're checked in to the hotel join up with the group for an evening orientation walk and the option of having dinner at one of our favourite local restaurants.

Overnight: Cairo (Hotel)


Day 2: Cairo - Aswan

Today is all about exploring Cairo, the capital city of Egypt and known as the 'The City of a Thousand Minarets' for its stunning array of Islamic architecture. We start with a visit to the Pyramids of Giza where you can view the Pyramid of Cheops, the only remaining Seven Wonder of the Ancient World. We head off to the world-famous Egyptian Museum where you'll be guided through thousands of artefacts, including the funerary treasures of King Tutankhamen. The Pyramids and the Museum will take up most of the day, but you'll have the early evening at leisure before boarding the overnight train to Aswan. Make sure you check out the markets of the local bazaar before we make our way to Aswan, haggling for a better price is customary in Egypt!.  Overnight: Aswan (Train).The train offers comfortable reclining seats with plenty of legroom. The journey takes approximately 12 hours and if you want to sleep we recommend you upgrade to a single or twin sleeper cabin.


Day 3: Aswan

This morning the train pulls into Aswan mid morning and we'll waste no time in getting from the station to the Aswan High Dam. The High Dam was finished in 1970 and has had a huge impact on the Egyptian economy and culture. You'll get all the info from your Guide before it's time to visit the Philae temple, sure to be a highlight of your time in Egypt. The afternoon is yours to explore the Souk of Aswan and take in its distinctively African charm.

 tonight you'll be staying in a hotel in Aswan. If you fancy a bit more luxury you can upgrade to a 5* Nile cruise boat today and spend your first night on the Nile. If you choose to upgrade you'll board the boat in time for a buffet lunch and in the afternoon you can jump on a felucca so you can still float down the Nile as the locals do.Overnight: Hotel (Aswan) or Nile cruise boat



Day 4: Abu Simbel - Nile Sailing

Whether you wake up on the Nile or in Aswan, you have the option to take the trip to Abu Simbel. This side trip is about six hours and includes a visit to the Behemothic Temple of Ramses II, the most awe-inspiring temple in ancient Egypt. If you're into seeing some of the local sights in Aswan, check out our optional side-trip to a traditional Nubian Village instead, before meeting up with the rest of the group to board your felucca/cruise boat as we set sail up the Nile towards Kom Ombo. Overnight: Felucca or Nile cruise boat


Day 5: Kom Ombo

Enjoy the serenity of sailing along the Nile in your felucca or cruise ship, the longest river in the world and steeped in history. This evening you'll arrive in Kom Ombo to visit its unusual double temple dedicated to Sobek, the crocodile God and the falcon God Horus the Elder. This is not only the best preserved ancient temple in Egypt, but also the second biggest after Karnak. It was uncovered from a huge mound of sand in 1860 and dates back to 237BC. Overnight: Felucca or Nile cruise boat


Day 6: Kom Ombo - Luxor

We continue on to the river city of Luxor by bus. After breakfast we head to the temple of Edfu which was built by Amenhotep III around 1370BC and dedicated to Amon-Re, king of the Gods and his consort, Mut. This fascinating temple has been used almost continuously for worship ever since. This evening you have a chance (time permitting) to enjoy an optional sound and light show at Karnak temple where, amongst the avenues of Sphinxes and halls of colossal columns, you'll hear tales of ancient Thebes.

Overnight: Luxor (Hotel



Day 7: Luxor - Hurghada

To avoid the blistering midday heat we're up early and head off into the Theban Mountains to visit the astonishing Pharaoh tombs of the Valley of the Kings. These exquisitely decorated tombs housed the sarcophagi encased mummies of over 60 pharaohs, most famously that of the child king, Tutankhamen. You'll then head to the temple of Hatshepsut, the extolled female pharaoh and the Colossi of Memnon. These massive quartzite statues that once guarded the entrance to the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III now make an awe-inspiring sight as they stand virtually alone in a field on the road to the Valley of the Kings. You'll then visit upper Egypt with a visit to the temple of Karnak, the largest ancient religious site in the world. This afternoon you will travel through the desert for your first glimpse of the Red Sea at Hurghada, arriving later in the evening. Overnight: Hurghada (Hotel)



Day 8: Hurghada - Dahab

We have an early start today to take the ferry from Hurghada to Sharm-el-Sheikh, continuing our journey through the Sinai desert to Dahab. Dahab is Arabic for "Gold" and almost certainly is derived from the golden sandy beaches that surround the town. We drive 1 ½ hours from the ferry port in Sharm-el-Sheikh to your hotel resort through the Sinai desert. In Dahab you're sure to have an unforgettable stay with time to relax, enjoy the colourful waters of the Red Sea, dive, snorkel, and explore. Spend the afternoon at the beach, relax by the pool, and head into downtown Dahab in the evening to have a look around. Perhaps you'll end up at the infamous Shipwreck bar for happy hour!

DAY 01:

Upon arrival at the Cairo International Airport, you will be met and transferred to the Ramses Hilton Hotel (or similar) for your overnight stay.

DAY 02: After breakfast, enjoy a full-day tour of Cairo, to see some of the cities most fascinating landmarks. The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities is often referred to as one of the most important museums in the world, housing more than 100,000 relics of ancient Egypt. Continue on to the Citadel, a crusader-style fortress dating from the time of Saladin. The most eye-catching of the Citadel’s buildings is the Mosque of Mohammed Ali (Alabaster Mosque). Then visit Khan El Khalili Bazaar, the most intriguing part of Old Cairo, to challenge your barganing skills. The bazaar is the world’s oldest, which was built in 1382. Artifacts of gold, silver, glass, wood, and paper of the highest quality and exquisite workmanship are manufactured and traded in this market. Proceed to the Coptic Musuem, estabilished in 1908, which houses the world’s largest collection of Coptic artifacts.

Return to the hotel for dinner. In the evening, you will have the opportunity to see the Pyramids Sound & Light show. The grandeur of the Pyramids is magnified at night when powerful floodlights bathe the ancient stones with rich color, and a stirring commentary, enhanced with symphonic music coming from hidden loudspea


DAY 03:

You will be met this morning by an English-speaking Egyptologist guide, for a full day excursion to the pyramids at Giza. At the edge of the modern city, on the verge of the desert, you will view some of the most astounding structures ever constructed by man. With no doors or windows to give them scale, the monolithic forms seem deceptively small until arriving to its base. Visit the Sphinx. Abu-El-Houl, or fear in Arabic, was sculpted in the image of pharaoh Chephren (head of the Pharaoh and lion’s body) standing as a guard for his pyramidal tomb. Then visit the Solar Boat, resembling paintings and models of boats that have survived since the Fourth Dynasty. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before visiting Sakkara and Memphis. Skirting fields watered by canals from the Nile, the road south from Giza leads to Sakkara, the largest necropolis in Egypt, with hundreds of tombs and monuments erected throughout ancient Egyptian history. Finally visit the Step Pyramids of Zoser. The very earliest of the great pyramids built perhaps a century before those at Giza, King Zoser’s architect stacked six large mastabas, rectangular tombs with flat-tops, on top of one another to create the step pyramid. Return to the Ramses Hilton for your overnight stay.


DAY 04:

Depart by mini-bus, through sand dunes, to the Bahariya Oasis. The drive is approximately four hours, and you will arrive in time for lunch at the Palm Village Hotel. The Bahariya Oasis is the closest oasis to Cairo in distance, but the most distant oasis in time, as it has been slow to move into the modern world. For travelers in search of the past, this is a wonderful experience. Visit the Golden Mummies Museum, Pantentio Tomb, Alexander the Great Tomb, and other sites. The world has been astonished by the large number of mummies buried in a huge labyrinth of tombs in this area. Overnight at the Palm Village Ho

DAY 05:

Travel through the mountains to the Farafra Oasis, approximately a three hour drive. En route, you will visit the White Desert whose chalky white sands look like snow, and is often wind-blown into gigantic mushroom-shaped formations. The isolation of the Farafra Oasis creates a special world of eternal sunshine and incredible beauty that is just beginning to be penetrated by the outside world. Peaceful and serene, its big skies and rugged landscape contain some of the most spectacular scenery in the Western Desert. Overnight at the Aqua Sun Hotel.

DAY 06:

Depart for the Dakhla Oasis, approximately a three hour drive. Have lunch and check-in at the Desert Lodge Hotel. Dakhla is the breadbasket of the area, with its fields and orchards lush with produce. The beige and brown landscapes are replaced with golden sand, red earth, pastel villages, and vibrant green fields. Step back centuries as you visit the spellbinding medieval village of Al-Qasr. Walk the narrow alleys threading among the mud-brick structures. Be sure to take note of the four/five-story Ottoman houses with their wooden-grill windows and lintels carved with verses from the Koran. Visit the 12th century mosque. Two miles beyond Al-Qasr, is the El-Muzawwaka burial site, with its 1st and 2nd century tombs. Time permitting, visit Balat Village with its Pharaonic mastabas dating to the 6th Dynasty. Qasr Dakhla, situated to the north-west of Mut, is one of the fortified Medieval Islamic towns often seen in Dakhla. It rests on the Sioh Ridge, nestled beneath the pink limestone escarpment that marks the dates to 1518 on the Beit Ibrahim. The Islamic town, el-Qasr, meaning ‘the Fortress’ was probably founded around the 12th century AD by the Ayyubids, over the remains of an earlier Roman period settlement.



DAY 07:

After breakfast, leave for the Kharga Oasis, about a two hour drive. Prehistoric paintings of giraffes and antelopes decorate the sides of strangely-shaped rock formations along the 125 mile road between Dakhla and Kharga oases. Check-in at the Pioneer Hotel and have lunch before touring the area. Kharga is the most populous Oasis of the Western Desert, and though it offers a variety of sites of interest to visitors, including an ancient fortress and villages, the landscape is what most overwhelms travelers. Here you will encounter the desert as you had always imagined the desert would be. The bustling main city, whose inhabitants now number sixty thousand, including one thousand Nubians who settled here after the creation of Lake Nasser. The oasis is still growing and the Egyptian government has plans to reclaim even more of the desert areas to offer land and homes to people in the overcrowded Nile Valleys as well as to make the area more attractive. Visit the newly constructed Kharga Museum, which houses an excellent collection of regional artifacts from various eras. A mile out of town is the temple of Hibis, built by the Persian emperor Darius in the 6th century BC and dedicated to God Amun. A mile farther is the fascinating necropolis of Bagawat, a Coptic Christian burial ground dating to the 4th century. Its mud-brick mausoleums cover many hills and some of the domes are decorated with frescoes of biblical scenes. Tour the Temple of Ghuwaytah built during the Ptolemeic era for the Triad of Amun, Mut & Khonsu. Overnight at the Pioneer Hotel.

DAY 08:

Head to Luxor, approximately four hours, stopping at the Qasr Al-Zayyan and the Roman fortress of El-Deir along the way. Within the rectangular mudbrick enclosure walls of the fortress is a temple dedicated to the god ‘Amun of Hibis,’ who was known to the Romans as Amenibis. Overnight in Luxor at the Meridien Luxor Hotel.

DAY 09:

Transfer to the pier for the embarkation of your Nile Cruise, for four nights. Today you will visit the East Bank, Luxor, and Karnak Temples. The temples of Karnak and Luxor were established in honor of the god Amun. In the past, the two temples were linked by an avenue of ram-headed sphinxes, representing the god Amun, who became the state god during the 18th Dynasty, transforming Karnak to one of the most important religious centers in the country.

DAY 10:

Cross to the West Bank and visit the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of Kings and Queens, and the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir El Bahari. There are between 75 and 80 tombs in the Valley of Queens. The Valley of Kings in Upper Egypt, the tombs of pharaohs from the New Kingdom can be found. Queen Hatshepsut’s Temple is one of the most dramatically situated in the world, set at the head of the valley, overshadowed by th Peak of Thebes, the “Lover of Silence,” where the goddess who presided over the necropolis lived.

The Ptolemaic Temple of Isis (Philae Temple) illustrates the Egyptian use of the post and lintel system of construction. The last known hieroglyphic inscription in Egypt dates from 394 CE and is in this temple. Enjoy lunch onboard, then visit the Elephantine Island and museum, and view the Agha Khan Masoleum by Felucca. Dinner and entertainment on board the boat.

DAY 13:

Transfer to the Aswan airport and fly to Abu Simbel, built by Ramesses II in ancient Nubia, to demonstrate his power and his divine nature. Four colassal statues of him sit in pairs flanking the entrance. The temple faces to the east, and is situated so that twice a year the sun’s rays reach into the innermost sanctuary illuminating the seated statues of sacred figures. The temple was cut out of the sandstone cliffs above the Nile River in an area near the Second Cataract. When the High Dam was being constructed in the early 1960s, international cooperation moved this temple to higher ground, above the rising waters of lake Nasser.
