We are thrilled to return to Egypt on this superb itinerary that combines guided tours of Cairo’s treasures with a cruise from Luxor. As we travel from the Pyramids of Giza to the Valley of the Kings, Egyptologists share their country’s ancient history and our own Host is with you all the way to arrange sociable meals and relaxing evenings.
So much is included: flights Cairo/Luxor, transfers, 4-star accommodation with your own room/cabin, excursions and entrance fees on 6 out of 8 full days in Egypt, plus virtually every meal.
As well as history, expect unforgettable experiences like sailing in a felucca, smiling locals, sunsets over the Nile and good company!

Our base in Cairo is the Pyramids Park Resort 10 minutes’ drive from the Pyramids themselves and half an hour from the city centre. Low-rise accommodation is set across 25 acres of gardens means this large hotel is a tranquil retreat after sightseeing.
The MS Viking Premier offers outstanding service and high standards: the sun deck features a pool and bar with sunbeds and chairs. The buffet restaurant offers choice at every meal. The cheerful crew organises after-dinner entertainment in the lounge bar.
