    Today, travel north to the city of Alexandria on Egypt’s Mediterranean coast. The city is believed to have been founded by and named after Alexander the Great, connecting the Egyptian and Greco Roman civilizations.

    Spend a full day exploring the city, visiting old and modern sites such as Fort Quitbey, the ruins of Serapeum and the famous Alexandria library.

  4. Day 4: Fly to Aswan, felucca cruise

    Take an early morning flight to Aswan, a scenic, laid-back city on the banks of the Nile. Visit the Temple of Philae, located on an island in the reservoir of the Aswan Dam.

    Late afternoon, you will board your private felucca for a relaxing cruise along the Nile, stopping at the Aswan Botanical Garden, as well as Elephantine Island wher you can see the tombs of the Aswan nobles and the stunning reflection of the sand dunes over the river.

    This evening, visit a Nubian village for a traditional dinner.  

  5. Day 5: Luxor & Valley of the Kings

    This evening, visit the traditional market where you will be able to explore and haggle for souvenirs (optional).

  6. Day 6: Hurghada

    Transfer to Hurghada, an excellent base for snorkelling trips with translucent water and rare species of coral and fish.
