Egypt is a land of starkly beautiful contrast. There’s the deep blue of the Nile River and lush green of the waterside oasis’s juxtaposed against the brilliant yellow of the desert sands, and the modern day city of Cairo with its skyscrapers and apartment blocks next to the ancient temples and the Pyramids in one of the world’s oldest civilizations.

On Trafalgar’s 11-day Best of Egypt vacation, you can see it all with a luxurious cruise down the Nile River. Visit the Valley of the Kings and several temples along the river; enjoy an excursion to the great Pyramids of Giza and a full day of sightseeing in the bustling capital, Cairo.

Highlights include: Take a morning flight to Luxor and step onboard the luxurious MS Medea cruise ship for a four-night cruise to Aswan, stopping at the Valley of the Kings, an eerie ancient Egyptian burial ground filled with more than 60 tombs of Pharaohs, Queens and ancient nobleman and women; visit the grand Temple of Luxor and the incredible Temple of Karnak. In Aswan, explore the amazing High Dam, visit the Temple of Isis and the Unfinished Obelisk, before flying back to Cairo for a relaxing three-night stay. See the Colossus of Ramses II and the Alabaster Sphinx, the Step Pyramid and the great Pyramids of Giza, the last remaining of the seven ancient wonders of the world. Plus visit the Egyptian Museum, home to King Tutankhamen’s priceless treasures, and enjoy plenty of time to explore Cairo’s fascinating markets.
