The most popular Egyptian tours are visits to Pyramids and museums of
ancient civilizations. Within these Ancient Egypt Tours that are
generally of a Pharoanic nature, you will be able to tour Cairo, Luxor
and Aswan, and see not only awesome markers of ancient Egyptian history,
but also landmarks of religious importance. You can also organize your
tour to even include a cruise down the Nile River as well.

There are several tours on offer, some with definite itineraries, others
organized according to your desired route, usually dependent on how much
you want to see and how long you plan to stay. Highlights of the tours
include the Giza (Great Pyramid) and the Saqqara (Step) Pyramids, the
Citadel, an Islamic market called Khan el-Khalili, as well as other
markets, churches and museums, all in Cairo. In Luxor, the must-see
landmarks would be at least one or two of the many fine monuments and
tombs found on the West Bank, which will prove to be welcome escapes from
the heat of the city. Make sure to also visit the Luxor and Karnak
temples and the highly popular Luxor museum, all on the East Bank.

Although you can fly or take a train between Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, we
highly recommend the bus rides between Luxor and Aswan, as these trips
usually have stopovers at popular, historic monuments along the way. In
Aswan, you could tour Elephantine Island, the Nubian museum and the
unfinished Obelisk, the High Dam and St. Simon’s Monastery. If you have
an extra day to spare, you could also visit the temples of Abu Simbel,
and have more time to see Aswan’s many other attractions.

Religious tours are also highly popular, such as the Holy Family route
and the Exodus route, as well as tours of Islamic mosques. You can just
imagine Moses leading the chosen people out of Egypt as you follow in
their steps. Unstructured religious tours are also on offer, allowing you
to see highlights from either the Holy Family and Exodus routes, as well
as monuments found in the Pharoanic tours.

The Ancient Egypt Tour is the ideal vacation for the adventurer in you,
and a great educational trip for the entire family, especially if you
have around two weeks to spare.   Aside from soaking up the amazing
ancient cultures, you'll also get to meet a people who are wonderfully
accommodating and friendly.
