Details

Have your ever imagined being Rick O'Connell or Evy from "The Mummy" movie, travelling the endless sands of Egypt with the hope of discovering hidden secrets or witnessing the greatness of ancient civilization that blows our minds to this day?!

You don’t need to be Brendan Fraser or Rachel Weisz to witness the spectacular Sun Festival at Abu Simbel on Ramses’ ascension to the throne day, stroll the streets of Cairo, set sail down the Nile onboard a traditional felucca and see the mighty pyramids! Explore Luxor with its built-for-eternity temples, tombs & palaces surrounded by souks & luxury hotels; relax (and snorkel) on the beach in Hurghada. Travel way back in time, discovering the legendary sites that make Egypt one of a kind destination in the world!!

Discover: Cairo * Memphis * Sakkara * Aswan * Abu Simbel * Aswan * Kom Ombo * Edfu * Luxor * Hurghada * Cairo

“The world is a book & those who do not travel read only one page” - Saint Augustine

Does it remind you of the famous "No!! You mustn't read from the book!..” of the Dead from the movie :). But it will sure make an unforgettable experience for the story of our lives!

13 Unforgettable Days / 12 Nights (some under the stars):

  • Travel through the whole of Egypt to the most famous sites: Pyramids at Giza, Memphis and Sakkara, Temple of Philae, Sobek & Haroeris and Horus decorated with magnificent colours and murals that miraculously survived for thousands of years.
  • Walk where the powerful Pharaohs walked over 3,000 years ago, take part in the celebration of greatness that continues for 3,200 seasons and travel the mighty Nile as it was travelled for thousands of years! The dunes, the river and the stars will make you speechless!
  • Relax on the Red Sea's sandy beaches and use excellent aquatic facilities for sailboarding, yachting, deep-sea fishing, SCUBA diving & snorkelling around the world’s finest offshore coral reefs; enjoy the many restaurants, bars & nightclubs or head to the old town, El Dahar, for traditional Egyptian coffee shops & souks.
