WHAT YOU GET
7 nights accommodation
3 nights in Hotel, 1 night in Overnight Train, 3 nights in Cruise ship
Here in Egypt, we match the accommodation to the country itself - diverse and incredible in equal measure. 3-nights will be spent in swanky hotels, 1-night on a couchette train riding twin-birth from Cairo to Aswan, & 3-nights will be spent cruising down the Nile, no less.
15 included Meals
7 Breakfast, 5 Dinner, 3 Lunch
Not familiar with Egyptian cuisine? You will be, and you'll be uber impressed might we add. We'll sort you out with 7 continental breakfasts to kick start each day of adventure, 3 lunches, & 5 dinners. The rest of the time you can stretch the waist of your pants overstuffed shortbread biscuits, tahini salads & eggplant moussaka.
Team
Expert Trip Manager, Driver and Local Guides
Throughout your trip you'll be safe in the hands of an expert local guide, who knows the streets of Egypt and the history of the Pharaohs better than you know the depths of your bucket list.
Transport
All transport included during the trip
Never a dull moment in Egypt! You'll be floating down the Nile on a traditional felucca sailboat one moment and taking a scenic couchette train the next, with a private, air-conditioned coach for all the bits in between.
Your group
Travel with other 18-35 year olds from around the world
Our trips are exclusively 18-35. This means you'll be travelling with people just like you, from all over the world- laughter and friendships always guaranteed.
Experiences
6 included, 6 optional that you can add
The jaw-dropping visit to the Sphinx & the monumental Pyramids of Giza set the tone of the inclusions on this incredible trip. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo and the Colossos of Memnon just keep adding some cream to the crop.
Read more Read less
Step into the ancient world of Egypt and discover the Great Pyramids. Experience the captivating chaos of Cairo, spend 3-nights gently floating down the river Nile in a traditional Felucca and relax on the beach in Hurghada. A trip to Egypt with Contiki will ensure you have a tour to remember.

Of the 7 Ancient Wonders of the World only one remains, and today you will be seeing it up close and personal. Get the tissues ready, seeing the iconic Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza in all their 4,600 year old glory will make for a day that stirs you to the very core.
Aswan
Tonight it's an overnight train to Aswan - nothing gives you a more up-close look at a place than riding local!
Stay
Overnight train
DAY 3 - Nile Cruise - Aswan
Aswan
Today is all about jaw drops from start to end. First up, you'll learn about the famous Obelisk, a symbol of Egypt, and interestingly a monument that is carved in the ground. These pointed needles are a great example of the skills of the ancient Egyptian artisans and our Local Guide will get you in the know on A to Z and everything in-between. Take a stroll along the Nile before grabbing that camera, as we hop aboard a wooden felucca sailboat, the first of our two boating experiences for the day, and watch the local life as you float on by. Tonight is a taste of the high life with a luxury cruise on the River Nile, no less. This is the first of 3-nights we'll spend on the water, soaking up Egypt from its iconic waterway.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Sit back & chill as you drift down the Nile on a traditional felucca sailing boat
Local villages, ancient sites & stunning scenery - see them all on your relaxing three-night cruise down the Nile

Next up is your chance to explore Abu Simbel's Temple of Ramses II, one of the world's most iconic sites dating back to 1264 BC. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is a must-do for history buffs and those looking to get in the know on this ancient site. Our Local Guide will uncover its history before we gently drift upstream, steering ourselves away from Aswan with our maps open on ancient Edfu.

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Abu Simbel Temple
USD 273.00
View Kom Ombo, the Temple of Two Gods
USD 12.00
Edfu
After green fields, the Arabian desert and palm trees aplenty have teased our eyes along the Nile, we'll pull in for a peak at the perfectly symmetrical town of Kom Ombo. This village's famous temple is dedicated to the God of Crocodile, and the God of Falcon and with it's stunning setting right by the Nile is the perfect spot to head on-land for some exploring. Back on the boat you can practice your 'walk like an Egyptian' pose, then take a dip in the pool (yes, as in the boat has a pool) before we dock for the night in Edfu.
Stay
Nile Cruise
DAY 5 - Nile Cruise - Edfu to Luxor
Edfu
A spot of temple time is up for grabs this morning, complete with a Greco-Roman history lesson & plenty of photo ops. Shortly after, we'll cast off in the direction of Luxor.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the Avenue of the Sphinxes
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Visit the Temple of Horus
USD 21.00
Luxor
As soon as we step foot on Luxor terrain, we'll start spinning our way into the historical mysteries of this magnificent town including the Avenue of the Sphinxes, an epic lineup of human headed sphinxes spanning 3km, and let's not forget a photographers dream. Tomorrow the Luxor discoveries continue, so there's no need to cram it all in on day one.
Stay
Philip Hotel (or similar)
DAY 6 - Luxor to Hurghada
Luxor
Only on a trip to Egypt would ancient royal tombs make a casual appearance on our daily agenda. Venturing to the Valley of the Kings known as 'City of the Dead,' our local guide will take us to some of the 63 royal tombs found here. Later, choose to visit the Temple of Karnak where we can find the world’s largest religious structure, the Temple of Amun.

See the Colossos of Memnon
Visit an Egyptian village
FREE TIME ADD-ONS

Stay
Bella Vista Hotel (or similar)
DAY 7 - Hurghada to Cairo
Hurghada
Lovers of exploring by sea could take a cruise of the Red Sea for all new views, or those who prefer life a little more on land could snorkel, sun bake or just relax in paradise this morning. Later, we'll attempt an Arabic goodbye to the beautiful beaches of Hurghada as we make our way back to where our Egyptian escapade kicked off just a week ago.
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Red Sea Cruise
US 46.00
Cairo
It's our last complete day together on tour, which means we need to make the most of every second and avoid winding down at all costs. Dive back into Cairo and find a mezze haunt to loiter in, or roam the ancient Khan El Khalili bazaar to pick up some final treasures.
Stay
Novotel Airport Hotel (or similar)
DAY 8 - Depart Cairo
Cairo
Down your last breakfast on us before collapsing into a mess of farewells. Stay strong, there are plenty more exotic lands with Contiki trips written all over them.

The tour was mind blowing, the tour manager has been running contiki’s For over 20 years and knows every little detail about Egypt. Not only do you get an awesome tour seeing some of the most amazing architecture and sights of the world, but you get a quaified Egyptologist explaining everything to you. Sherif (the tour manager) speaks with absolute passion and love for his role and country and this really made the whole tour that more enjoyable. The included meals were amazing and the additional activities were all so careful selected to ensure contiki see the most amazing sights in Egypt. Hands down would recommend this tour to everyone! The boat cruise was amazing!!

This was an incredible trip! There is no amount of research that you can do to prepare yourself for what you're going to see in person on this trip. It is breathtaking. This trip is packed! It was fast-paced and full of history. I wish we would have had more time to roam around at a few of the historical sites, but due our busy schedule we just had to keep going. The Nile Cruise is phenomenal - the staff are so accommodating and the food was outstanding! The train ride is an experience - I'll leave it at that. We always felt safe while we were in Egypt. Sherif was a wonderful manager - full of energy, knowledge and jokes.

Overpriced tour. Hotels were shabby. For the price we paid, we should have stayed at 5 star hotels and no longer had to pay for optional tours. Complete rip-off.
