The incredible ancient history and serene beauty of Egypt and its Nile River is
a must-see for every traveler. Uniquely to Egypt, well-preserved antiquities can be found everywhere – from the site of the Pyramids near Cairo, and excavated tombs in Luxor to the abundant architectural wonders found all along the Nile. The best way to explore the country is to take a cruise on the Nile, allowing you to relax on the river between exploration filled stops. Touring Egypt can also include shopping in exotic bazaars, snorkeling, and desert adventures.
A visit to this ancient Land of the Pharaohs can be customized for an array of tastes – from independent travelers thirsting for history, to couples wanting a romantic adventure to families wanting to discover the past together. We recommend visiting for at least one week, and including a Nile River cruise, which range from 3 to 7 days. Lakani World Tours can create a travel itinerary best suited for you – depending on your time, interests, and budget. Here are the most popular stops:
Cairo – A massive city with enormous markets, mosques, churches and even synagogues to explore, along with the amazing Cairo Museum and its Mummies Room. You can also explore the nearby Great Pyramids of Giza, as well as the Sphinx, ancient Memphis and Sakkara.
Luxor – Home to some of the most famous ancient sites. Visit the Valley of the Kings, and its famous Tutankhamun (King Tut) Tomb; and the Valley of the Queens including the temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the Temples of Karnak. These sites are amazing to see both during the day, and illuminated in the evening.
Aswan & Abu Simbel – See the High Dam, Temple of Philae, the ‘unfinished’ obelisk and take a traditional Felucca cruise to Elephantine Island. Aswan is an oft-included cruise stop, but you can choose to stay on land at the historic Sofitel Old Cataract Hotel. Aswan is also the gateway for a day trip to Abu Simbel and its 3,300-year- old temple of Ramses II.
Sharm El Sheikh – Set on the shores of the Red Sea, and famous for its beautiful resorts, here you can enjoy watersports and day-trips to the desert. Visit the world-famous St. Catherine’s Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Nile Cruises – Travel up or downstream (or roundtrip) on the Nile; stops typically include Edfu, Aswan, Luxor and Kom Ombo. Some cruises also stop at smaller ports to explore off the beaten track. Ships range in size from intimate
6-passenger size to about 100-passenger vessels.
