Places You'll See

Itinerary

icon Day 1: Cairo

Saturday. Welcome to Cairo! Your family will be met by our representative and transferred to the hotel to spend tonight at leisure.

icon Day 2: Cairo

Meals: Breakfast

This morning enjoy a guided tour of the Grand Egyptian Museum and discover treasures including the famous gold burial mask of King Tutankhamun. Then we head over to National Museum of Egyptian Civilization to visit the Royal Mummies' Hall, where the mummies of powerful pharaohs are on display. Some of the mummies are so well preserved, they still have thick locks of hair, visible finger nails and smooth, if blackened skin! After our tour we return to the hotel where the rest of the day is free for you to relax and have fun in the pool with your family.

Please Note: the Grand Egyptian Museum is set to open late 2021, an official date has yet to be released. If travelling prior to the opening of the new facility we'll visit the Egyptian Museum instead.

icon Day 3: Pyramids of Giza

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Cairo - Aswan. Today, we visit the legendary pyramids and iconic Sphinx at Giza Plateau. Sole survivors from the ancient Greek-listed Seven Wonders of the World. Gaze in awe at the largest of the three great pyramids - Cheops, constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks it took more than 20 years to construct. We explore this area on foot and there's the opportunity to venture inside one of the great pyramids. The afternoon is free to relax by the hotel pool with your family or independently explore Cairo before we take the comfortable overnight sleeper train to Aswan.

icon Day 4: Aswan

Meals: Breakfast

This morning we arrive into Aswan and take a boat out to Agilika Island to visit the beautiful Philae Temple. After exploring this famous site we make a stop at a perfume oil emporium, the rest of the day is free for you to relax, enjoy the hotel facilities or take a stroll along the riverside corniche and explore. This evening, we’ll visit the Aswan market and enjoy the smells of herbs and spices being sold by the local tradespeople.

icon Day 5: Aswan

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Today we enjoy a sailing trip aboard a traditional felucca (small wooden sailing boat) as we cruise the mighty Nile to Elephantine Island. During our guided walk of the island discover many archaeological sites and pay a visit to a local school (if open) before enjoying lunch and some family time back on board. This afternoon is free for you to spend at leisure or join our optional excursion to the fascinating Nubian Museum. The museum is home to more than 3,000 artefacts and scale models from across Egypt’s ancient history, from the Pharaohs to the Romans.

icon Day 6: Aswan

Meals: Breakfast

Aswan - Luxor. This morning we take a motorboat across the river to the west bank of the Nile, where we enjoy a camel ride across the desert sands to the 7th century Monastery of St Simeon. We explore this site before bidding farewell to Aswan and travelling to Luxor, stopping en route to visit the temple of Kom Ombo. The northern half of this temple was dedicated to the falcon god Horus, whilst the southern half was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek. The two are perfectly symmetrical and you’ll think you’re seeing double as we explore.

icon Day 7: Luxor

Meals: Breakfast

We visit Luxor’s legendary West Bank this morning - home to the famous Valley of the Kings, the imposing colonnaded temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the gigantic Colossi of Memnon. See how the ancient Egyptians confounded tomb robbers with the construction of elaborate catacombs, once filled with treasures and highly decorated to allow the pharaoh passage to the afterlife.



The day continues with an afternoon trip to the colossal Karnak Temple, which took 1,500 years to complete. Karnak is a spectacular complex of sanctuaries, pylons, chapels, halls and obelisks and the vast Hypostle Hall with its gargantuan columns has to be seen to be believed, it's a great place play hide and seek with the kids! This evening can be spent at leisure with your family, or you can join our optional tour of Luxor Temple, which is beautifully illuminated at night.

icon Day 8: Luxor

Meals: Breakfast

Luxor - Cairo. This morning we leave Luxor, transfer to the airport and fly back to Cairo, where you can enjoy the rest of the day relaxing at the hotel pool with your family or exploring as you please.

icon Day 9: Cairo

Our Tour Guide, Ahmed, was extremely approachable and helpful, making sure that we are comfortable and have everything we need, especially at the start and the end of the tour.

Our Tour Guide, Helal, was so friendly, flexible and accommodating, so that everyone felt at ease, whether sightseeing, having meals or shopping at a market.

He was prepared to change plans to suit everyone, at the same time making sure that we were not missing out on any of wonderful experiences! Helal’s fantastic knowledge and passion for the History of Ancient Egypt made sure that all of us learnt amazing details about it! This included adjusting his explanations to keep children interested, making them a part of a story.

Any parent knows how hard it can be to travel with kids, especially on long trips overseas, when they are trying to adjust to time difference, picky eaters, tired and grumpy.

.

.

Helal made it so easy for us all, ensuring the kids were having fun and a good play, allowing parents to relax and have a bit of a break too.

Safety being one of the main concerns before the trip, we were so impressed by how safe we were made feel by our Tour Guide and Leader, who were always there for us with a helpful advice at any time and about anything.

Overall, we had fantastic time, learnt a lot and loved our experiences! We would love to come back again and would recommend this tour to everyone.

Thank you so much!; ....less

It was busy, but there wasn't anything that we would have wanted to miss out! The hotels were all of good quality, comfortable and in good locations.

Helal was a great guide and was not only knowledge and generous with his time, but tirelessly patient with the children.

He took us to some really interesting local restaurants and really helped with tired children.

His pitch for explaining the complexity of the ancient relationships and timelines was perfect, enough information for adults and quirky stories for the children.

We were also happy to have the change to flights as I think it probably worked for us better than the overnight trains would have.

I would highly recommend the tour and especially Helal to anyone thinking about visiting Egypt.

We really enjoyed learning about the ancient gods and pharaohs.

Helal also provided cultural experiences and information, chose a range of different restaurants, was respectful, attentive, patient, funny and kind.

He was fantastic with the kids and adults.

Special thank you from us for taking special care of our dietary needs.

I have a severe food allergy (wheat) and my husband is a vegetarian.

We were never unwell and had plenty of delicious food to eat.

He kept us safe discretely, and gave clear directions about safety, meeting places etc.

We appreciate his efforts and care.

My only suggestion would be to add activities I to the last day in Cairo.

Perhaps Saqqara and Memphis.

We also would suggest a change to the first hotel near the Sphinx.

We loved it! We covered a lot of Egypt that we would not have done on our own.

Our guide worked tirelessly for the group.

He was very informative.

Helal was very good with everyone especially the kids.

He taught them a lot of new games.

We learnt a lot of history and he explained everything at the kids level so everyone could understand.

Love the Egyptian cuisine he took us to.

Helal coordinated mini buses, trains and us and very efficient.

The man has patience! All the accommodations of very good standard.

Would highly recommend trip and guide! Fernando says, 'Our trip was great, I have learnt many things from that trip.

Our breakfast buffet was always amazing.

The historical sites we visited were fantastic'.

The children both agree that your tour was the highlight of the entire journey and I have to say I agree with them! We were made so welcome by your staff and the people we encountered.

We absolutely loved the quirky opportunities such as camel riding and haggling in the local bazaars.

The hotels were excellent - clean and refreshing and our tour guide, Helal, was like a favourite uncle to the kids on the tour.

He was the perfect tour guide - organized, relaxed and friendly.

Apart from keeping the kids entertained, he made it so easy for the adults to enjoy the sights too.

This tour was so well thought out and combined so many amazing elements.

I just hope many more people take the opportunity to visit this amazing country and do so with one of your tours.

We certainly intend to travel with On the Go again! Thank-you so much.
