My Egypt Experience, 6th – 20th January 2016

Aswan - felucca and 2 monuments

We have spoken before about our upcoming trip to Egypt and thought we would stop to again let you know we are gathering numbers for this voyage and would encourage anyone who is thinking of Egypt to join us on this departure. This trip has been prepared by an expert in the local region who has been developing and running tour groups to Egypt for over a decade and who has seen to it that the tour will cover the best of this country!

As you can see we will cover the highlights of Cairo from the Pyramids of Giza to the complex at Saqquara, the monuments at Memphis, Saladins Mosque, Khan El Khalili Bazaar, the Egyptian Museum and More. We take in Alexandria including the Roman frescoes, the new library and the Commonwealth War Graves at El Alemain. We cruise the Nile, visiting Luxor and visiting the Valley of the Kings and the Temples of Luxor and Karnak, as well as Aswan where we take in the High Dam, Philae and Abu Simbel, and all the major sights in between including Kom Ombo and Edfu.

This tour has been made to ensure you have the best opportunities for sightseeing, travel and experiences on this trip. As examples here are three things tailored into  this tour to bring you the best experiences in Egypt!

1. Cairo Hotels. Our first stay in Cairo is in Giza, so when we head out to sightsee we can spend more time sightseeing and less in traffic, while our second stay is downtown and closer to the attractions we will be visiting on our second stay, and more centralized for your own wanderings in this incredible city

2. Abu Simbel. Many tours have this as an optional, having been there and seen it, we can tell you that after the Pyramids the Temple Complex at Abu Simbel is one of the most incredible sights in Egypt. So we have included it, and rather than wasting over 16 hours by doing it as an overland journey we do it by air, giving more time to enjoy other sights in Egypt then barren rocky roadsides.

3. High Tea. Ok this is one that is hit ans miss with some travellers, but taking High Tea at the Old Cataract Hotel where Agatha Christie wrote Death On The Nile is a great way to get a taste of the old colonial charm that the British Empire brought to Egypt, and watching the sunset over the cataracts while you enjoy a good tea or coffee and light snacks is a fantastic way to end a busy day.

So if Egypt sounds like your “cup of tea”please give us a call on (02) 4421 5577 or email nowra@mytavelexpert.com.au to reserve your space on this departure today!
