8-Day Egypt Experience

Written By Ted Loukes


The GnT 8-Day Egypt Experience begins in Cairo with some of the earliest tombs and pyramids, including a visit to the ancient capital, Memphis.

The overnight sleeper train will take you south to Luxor and the start of an unhurried journey of discovery through the one-time capital of the land of the Pharaohs and the extraordinary burial grounds of Ancient Egypt’s New Kingdom.

You will visit some of the more interesting tombs and temples in the Luxor area, many of which are not on the general tourist itineraries. Pooling their knowledge, resources and personal experiences, your hosts will lead you on a fascinating exploration back in time. You will walk the paths of not just kings and queens from the distant past, but also those of the nobility of the age, the men and women who held the reins of officialdom in the name of the Pharaoh, and the oft-forgotten workmen who labored under extreme conditions to bring these massive undertakings to life.

Your last morning will begin with a visit to Egypt’s most famous landmark, the Giza Plateau, home to the Pyramids and the Sphinx, where you will have the opportunity to go inside the Great Pyramid, followed by a tour of the world famous Egyptian Museum, current home of the golden mask of Tutankhamun. You will then be driven to Cairo International Airport in time for your international departure.
