Journey Overview

Few destinations capture the imagination like Egypt and this special journey promises an utterly memorable adventure to the heart of an ancient land which travellers have marvelled at for millennia. Follow in the footsteps of pharaohs, emperors and conquerors from Cairo to Luxor and along the Nile to Aswan. You’ll cruise aboard A&K’s own award-winning Sanctuary Sun Boat IV and have an in-depth exploration of the country’s myriad archaeological treasures and ancient monuments with a leading Egyptologist bringing both ancient and modern Egypt to life. Highlights include the soaring Pyramids of Giza and the hidden Valley of the Kings, rarely seen temples, the vibrant maze of alleyways in Cairo’s largest market and the tiny islands around Aswan.
