Day 2: Cairo
Today, we venture in search of the treasures of King Tutankhamun, mummies and more at the Egyptian Museum. Later we tour the Islamic Citadel of Saladin with views looking down over the old city, watching people go about their daily life. We conclude the day with a market walk through the bustling Khan el-Khalili bazaar.
Day 3: Pyramids of Giza
Location: Pyramids of Giza
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.
Day 4: Aswan
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.
Day 5: Aswan
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.
Day 6: Aswan
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.
Day 7: Luxor
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.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our Egyptian Family Adventure Tour and we would definitely recommend this tour to any family! 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.
Helal was a very professional tour guide with a thorough knowledge of ancient Egypt. We really enjoyed learning about the ancient gods and pharaohs.

Helal was a very professional tour guide with a thorough knowledge of ancient 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 had a marvelous time -- and Halel was so kind and helpful. We only wish more people would visit Egypt!

We spent 10 weeks travelling around the world, including a visit to Egypt on your 10 Day Family Adventure in September.
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.
