Quick Links

Egypt is the land of timeless wonders and a place everyone should see at least once in their lives. Egypt is a country that can be overwhelming for people traveling there for the first time. Egypt is a destination that can be hectic, and many first-time travelers may experience something of a cultural shock. Traveling in a guided tour is a way of being in a comfortable bubble so that one can get the most out of visiting the many landmarks of Egypt.

One of the best ways to explore Egypt without all the stress is with a guided tour. One option is to have an 8-day and 7-night Nile private tour of Egypt. To really see any amount of the many attractions Egypt has on offer, a week-long tour is needed at a minimum. Egypt is a country with so much more to see and experience than just the fabled pyramids and has many attractions all the way up and down the Nile.

Private Tour: 8 Days / 7 Nights Pyramids And Nile Cruise

This week-long Viator tour of Egypt is long enough to capture much of the very best Egypt has on offer. It also includes a 5-day, 4-night cruise down the Nile - the lifeblood of Egypt.

  • Total Duration: 8 Days / Nights
  • Nile Cruise Duration: 5 Days / 4 Nights

The package tour is one of the most comprehensive Egyptian vacation packages. Guests will see the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum, and Coptic Cairo. There are three nights in Cairo in a hotel from which one will explore the many attractions of the region.

After that, that tour flies south to Luxor, where some of the best Egyptian temples await. Guests will see the temples of Karnak, Luxor, and Hatshepsut, as well as the vaunted Valley of the Kings.

At Luxor, hop on a cruise and meander down the Nile to Edfu, Kom Ombo, and Aswan. See the colossi of Memnon, the High Dam, the Unfinished Obelisk, and much more. Perhaps one will feel like one is in a mystery novel - like Agatha Christi's Death On The Nile (the 2022 movie remake of the novel is a must-watch). One can imagine the sleuthing of the main character of the movie, Hercule Poirot, and imagine what Egypt was like for tourists in the 1930s.

Egypt - The Land Of Timeless Wonders

Egypt is a country with a bewildering amount of history, and any tour of Egypt will only just begin to scratch the surface. Egypt has more than ancient monuments. It has some of the most remarkable stretches of the Sahara Desert (there are plenty of tours into the Egyptian deserts as well), while in the Sinai, one can find one of the oldest Christian monasteries. There are many lost cities in Egypt as well; for example, in the north, one can find the lost city of Heracleion or Thonis - the Atlantis of Egypt.

Egypt is home to two of the Seven Ancient Wonders of The World - the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Great Pyramid. The Great Pyramid of Egypt is today the only one of the Seven Wonders left standing (it is also by far the oldest).

A week-long tour of Cairo, Luxor, and the Nile is an excellent introduction to Egypt, but there will be plenty more to come back to discover at another time.
