The desert wind whispers secrets of pharaohs as your “Egypt Best Vacations” tour guide whisks you from your Cairo hotel towards the iconic silhouettes that have captured imaginations for millennia: the Great Pyramids of Giza

Prepare to be awestruck. The Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure rise from the sands, each a colossal testament to ancient genius and power. Marvel at the Sphinx, its enigmatic gaze watching over the sands of time. Today, you have the option to step into the very heart of a pyramid (entrance fee not included in tour price). Imagine the whispers of pharaohs as you explore the labyrinthine passages and emerge with a newfound appreciation for these architectural marvels.

Next, embark on a historical journey to Saqqara, a vast necropolis boasting the Step Pyramid of King Djoser, the very first pyramid ever built. Explore its unique design, a precursor to the iconic triangular giants, and delve into the fascinating history of this significant archaeological site. Saqqara, the cemetery of Memphis, Egypt’s ancient capital, holds secrets whispering from the depths of time.

This is just the beginning of your captivating 10-day solo adventure. From Luxor’s pharaoh-studded streets to the gentle embrace of the Nile on a felucca cruise, and the sun-kissed shores of Hurghada, prepare to be swept away by the magic of Egypt.

Day 3Egyptian Museum, Saladin Citadel and Khan El-Khalili

Your Egyptian odyssey dives right into the heart of history with a visit to the Egyptian Museum. Prepare to be dazzled by thousands of artifacts, whispering tales of pharaohs, gods, and empires long gone. Marvel at the intricate mummies that defy the sands of time.

Next, climb aboard time travel machine and ascend to the mighty Citadel of Saladin. Built by Sultan Saladin to shield Cairo from invaders, this fortress has witnessed centuries of power struggles and triumphs. Explore the grand courtyards, intricate mosques, and towering ramparts, all bathed in the golden glow of the setting sun.

No trip to Cairo is complete without a plunge into the vibrant chaos of Khan El-Khalili bazaar. Lose yourself in a labyrinth of ancient alleyways, where dazzling spices ignite your senses, colorful fabrics beckon you closer, and haggling becomes an art form. From handcrafted treasures to hidden coffee shops, every corner promises a new adventure.

As the sun dips below the desert horizon, you will board your sleeper train, ready to drift off to the rhythmic lullaby of the tracks and awaken to the magic of a Nile felucca cruise.

Day 4Aswan Tour - Felucca Nile cruise

As day surrenders to dusk, a new adventure unfolds. The rhythmic clatter of the train fades, replaced by the gentle lapping of the Nile against your felucca cruise. First, stand on e the mighty High Dam, a modern marvel that tamed the Nile and transformed the desert. Imagine the roar of engines and the sweat of men, a testament to human ambition etched in concrete.

Next, your felucca glides towards Philae Island, a sanctuary blessed by the presence of Isis, goddess of magic and motherhood. The temple dedicated to her rises from the water, its columns bathed in moonlight and its walls whispering stories of celestial secrets and ancient rituals. Feel the aura of divinity settle upon you as you explore this enchanting island oasis. 

As shadows lengthen, journey to the Unfinished Obelisk, a silent behemoth slumbering in the granite quarry. Imagine the pharaoh’s grand vision, forever frozen in stone, each stroke of the chisel carrying echoes of ambition and dreams unfulfilled. This colossal fragment of history adds a touch of mystery to your Aswan adventure.

Then, as the stars burn brighter and cooler air kisses your skin, settle back on your felucca. Let the gentle rocking of the Nile lull you into a state of serenity. Watch the constellations unfold like hieroglyphs in the night sky, each twinkling star a story waiting to be whispered.

This night on the Nile promises an unforgettable experience. Unwind, reconnect with nature, and delve into the timeless charm of Aswan. The day may be done, but the magic of Egypt is just beginning on your 10-day solo budget adventure.

Day 5Kom Ombo & Edfu Temples

Breakfast and disembarkation. Visit the famous Camel Market (every Saturday and Sunday). Daraw has one of the largest camel markets in Egypt. Most of the camels come in caravans from Sudan’s Darfur and Kordofan along the Darb Al Arba’een (Forty Days Rd) to just north of Abu Simbel before being trucked to Daraw. It is a picturesque sight and fascinating to see the trading; sometimes there are as many as 2000 camels.

Travel to Kom Ombo to visit the twin Temple of Horus and Sobek together with the Crocodile Museum. This temple was built in the Ptolemaic period. Due to the conflict between Sobek and Horus, the ancient Egyptians felt it necessary to separate their temple spaces within one temple. The Kom Ombo Temple has two entrances, courts, colonnades, Hypostyle halls, and sanctuaries, one side for each god.

Transfer from Kom Ombo to visit the most intact temple in Egypt, the Temple of Horus in Edfu. Edfu Temple is one of the most striking and complete of ancient Egyptian temples and is dedicated to the worship of the god Horus. Situated on the western bank of the Nile, its construction began during the reign of Ptolemy III (246–221 BC) in 237 BC, but was completed in the reign of Ptolemy XII (80–51 BC) in 57 BC, 180 years later.

Then transfer to your hotel in Luxor for a free evening.

Day 6Luxor highlights - Hurghada

Prepare to walk where pharaohs tread in the Valley of the Kings. Descend into their elaborately decorated tombs, where hieroglyphs whisper stories of forgotten opulence and ancient rites. Your guide, a guardian of these sacred secrets, will unlock the mysteries of three magnificent tombs, each a portal to a bygone era.

Next, stand in awe before the Temple of Hatshepsut, a monument to a female pharaoh’s audacious ambition. Climb its terraces, bathed in the golden light of dawn, and imagine her reign, defying tradition and etching her name in history. Gaze upon the Colossi of Memnon, their weathered faces eternally fixed on the east. Feel the weight of millennia in their gaze, and contemplate the stories these silent guardians hold. 

Savor a delicious Egyptian lunch at a local restaurant, where the clatter of plates and laughter blend with the rhythm of daily life.

Unravel the secrets of the sprawling Temple of Karnak, the largest religious complex ever built. Lose yourself in its labyrinthine halls, adorned with towering pylons and intricate carvings. Imagine the chants of priests echoing through these walls for centuries, and feel the presence of ancient gods lingering in the air. Witness the majestic Temple of Luxor transformed by illumination. Witness its walls come alive with light, each inscription whispering untold stories under the starlit sky.

Then, trade dusty sands for golden beaches as you transfer to Hurghada. Spend the next three days basking in the sun, the gentle waves lapping at your feet. Dive into the vibrant underwater world of the Red Sea, a kaleidoscope of coral reefs teeming with colorful fish. Explore shipwrecks, dance with schools of manta rays, and let the rhythm of the ocean lull you into blissful relaxation.
