Visit the Pyramids of Giza – one of the Seven Wonders of the World – and be awestruck by this monumental accomplishment of ancient Egypt. Disco ver its significance before gaining special access to the paws of the Sphinx.

For an adrenaline rush, skydive with an instructor over the pyramids. Prefer to stay on the ground? Hop on a quad bike for a desert ride with a difference. Slow it down as you browse Khan al Khalili bazaar which is renowned worldwide for its atmospheric maze of alleys decorated with textiles and jewelry. Witness the Egyptian Museum’s vast collection of archaeological treasures before an evening watching a sensational light and sound show play across the pyramids.


From Cairo to Al Fayoum where the arid plains bloom into a large fertile basin of palms, thriving agriculture, and watchful water buffalo. Explore Wadi El Rayan, its sand dunes, waterfalls, and rocky towers a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While you’re there hope for a glimpse of its local wildlife stars: the white gazelles and sand foxes.


Discover the otherworldly Wadi El Hitan where the earliest prehistoric whale fossils were found and where intriguing skeletons remain in situ. Gallop on horseback through the land of the pharaohs, and drink in the romance and panoramas while astride an Arabian horse in the desert.


You’ll arrive next at Luxor where Egypt’s largest number of significant monuments are clustered. Be taken by motorboat to reach the archaeological paradise of Luxor’s West Bank.


Delve into the burial chambers of the Valley of the Kings, a professional guide taking you around these incredibly affecting sites. See the resting place of Tutankhamun before a trip to the Valley of the Queens—the site of Luxor’s most striking tomb.


Travel to the Nile’s East Bank for the temple complexes of Luxor and Karnak before a private trip onboard an Egyptian sailboat. Sip sundowners as the sun melts away behind the Theban Hills.


Pelorus can arrange an exclusive experience for you to ride a hot air balloon over the Luxor. Savor the vistas over this ‘open air museum’ while the dawn light settles softly into the palms and desert contours below.


Board the Dahabiyas Nile Boat for a deeply comfortable cruise, from Esna to Aswan, along the broad waters of the Nile River. 


You will disembark at various engaging stops along the way. At impressive Edfu, you’ll find a horse and carriage waiting to carry you through this historic city; stop to indulge in a refreshing swim; and seek out Egyptian hieroglyphs in the desert as dusk softens the edges of the mountains. At Gebel Sibsileh see a different side of the Nile as it flows through the mountain ranges.

Once you reach Aswan, with its white-sailed feluccas drifting from bank to bank, you’ll have reached your final stop. The location of Abu Simbel—one of Egypt’s most stunning and best-preserved monuments—you’ll learn about these fascinating limestone temples before immersing yourself further in Aswan’s many archaeological treasures.
