The Best Luxury Tour of Egypt without Nile Cruise


Day 1: Arrival at Cairo. You will have communicated your arrival details to your guest relations manager, who is assigned to you after you reserve your tour. Welcome to Egypt.

Cairo and The Nile

Cairo and The Nile

This cradle of civilization was given birth to, and is still nurtured by, the longest and most storied river on our planet, the legendary Nile River.

Most flights arrive either in the evening or at night, and we strongly recommend that our guests consider arriving a day earlier as this allows you to recuperate from jetlag and serves as insurance against international flight delays and cancellations. An additional night's hotel stay can be added at the time of reservation.

Our services begin with your luxury VIP greeting as you disembark at Cairo airport. You are greeted as soon as you exit your plane and you will now be escorted through the complete arrival process, including immigration, baggage claim, and customs, and then you will be met by an Easy Tours Travel Facilitator or your Egyptologist Tour Director. You are then driven to your luxury riverfront hotel where you will check-in if it is after 3 PM. If your arrival is before 3 PM and an early check-in is not available, you can drop your bags off and use the facilities to freshen up.

Please note that Cairo traffic is among the worst on our planet and the airport is a long drive from the city, and so we do not recommend itineraries which include two separate roundtrips between the airport and the city. Our itineraries are designed to avoid the worst of the traffic wherever possible. We also currently do not recommend the Mina House Hotel in Giza.

Guests who ask us to include Alexandria during their exploration of Egypt will be driven there, after touring Cairo, for a 2-day extension. You will depart from your Cairo hotel on the morning of Day 5, stay at the Four Seasons there, and return to Cairo airport for your flight to Aswan on Day 6 afternoon - Alexandria Airport has no nonstops to Aswan or Luxor.

Day 2: Cairo. Experience an exploration of The UNESCO World Heritage Sites at Giza, Memphis, Dahshur and Saqqara. All of them are located on the Memphite Necropolis, and your Egyptologist Tour Director will give you a fascinating introduction by showing you how the building of pyramids progressed over the centuries. The legendary city of Memphis, established in 3200 BC, is now a sleepy little rural/urban mix, and you will start by visiting the small Archaeological Park here. Among the statues and other objects in the open-air park is a massive statue of Ramses the Great, located in a building at the entrance of the park. This is one of the two colossal statues of Ramses the Great from ancient Memphis. The other statue has been fully restored and is now the centerpiece of the very impressive entrance hall of the still to open Grand Egyptian Museum (may finally open at some point in 2022 - the opening has been repeatedly postponed for many years). Unlike its museum counterpart, this massive statue is displayed prone on the ground and missing the lower part of its legs, but it is still awe-inspiring in its scale and detail. Among the other attractions in the small outdoor Archeological Park area is the Alabaster Sphinx of Memphis. This sphinx is actually made of Calcite, and at 26 feet by 13 feet the monument is much smaller than the Great Sphinx.

Step Pyramid & Oldest Stone Buildings

Step Pyramid & World's Oldest Stone Buildings

From here you will proceed nearby to Saqqara where you will see the oldest pyramid in Egypt, the 4700+ years old Djoser Step Pyramid.

The massive ancient burial site of Saqqara also contains the oldest stone building complex in the world, as well as multiple ancient Mastaba tombs belonging to high-ranking citizens. Among these the Tomb of Udut, Unas-Ark and Inefert is well worth a walk through. Saqqara was used as a burial ground for 3000 years, lasting into the Roman period.

Another short drive will bring you to Dahshur, where you will experience how the Egyptians progressed on building pyramids after the Step Pyramid. Amazing attractions here include the 4600-year-old Bent Pyramid as well as the Red Pyramid, both built by the Pharoah Sneferu.

A 20-minute drive will take you to the Giza Necropolis, where you will break for an included lunch at a restaurant specializing in Egyptian delicacies. After lunch you will drive up the small plateau to the 3 amazing pyramids here, all of which are individually awe-inspiring. The Great Pyramid was built by Khufu, the son of Sneferu, the Pharoah who had the Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid constructed at Dahshur. The Great Pyramid has always been the oldest member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and is now the only one of them still remaining.

Khafre's Pyramid

Khafre's Pyramid and The Great Pyramid

We will not attempt to describe the incredible size and splendor of these ancient structures - they have to be experienced to be believed.

After the Dahshur Pyramids the pharaohs got busy building these amazing structures and the two tallest pyramids, Khufu's Great Pyramid and Khafre's Pyramid, were finished within a few decades after the completion of the Red Pyramid at Dahshur. As Khafre was Khufu's son, he built his pyramid to a height of 471 feet, as opposed to the Great Pyramid's 481.4 feet height, but he built it on a slightly higher elevation close by, thereby making his pyramid seem taller. Although significantly smaller than these two pyramids, the third pyramid at Giza, built by Menkaure, son of Khafre, is well worth a visit.

Next up is the Great Sphinx, which is commonly believed to have been designed and constructed during the above-mentioned Khafre's reign, with his face mounted on the mythical creature, although scholars are not certain and a debate on its exact origins is ongoing. It is 66 feet high and 62 feet wide and 240 feet long.

The Great Sphinx

The Great Sphinx

The awe-inspiring structure offers great photo opportunities, including views with Khafre's Pyramid as a magnificent backdrop.

Although there are remains of scores of other pyramids in Egypt, it is an interesting fact that the above mentioned largest still intact pyramids, with the exception of the Step Pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara, were all built over about just 80 years by four generations of Pharaohs, starting with Menkaure's great grandfather, Pharoah Sneferu. You will avoid Cairo's miserable rush hour traffic and return to your hotel after this exploration of Giza.

Day 3: Cairo. Today you will start your exploration of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Islamic Cairo, also known as Historic Cairo. Although areas that now comprise the metropolis of Cairo are much older than this, Islamic Cairo was founded in the 10th century and has flourished since then in one form or another.

There are impressive mosques and other historic structures, as well as a unique culture and atmosphere that has not changed much over the centuries. Start with an exploration of the Citadel of Salah El-Din, a fortress that houses museums and beautiful gardens, with the most impressive structure being the Alabaster Mosque, or the Mosque of Mohamed Ali. This Citadel was home to Egypt's rulers from the 12th to the 19th century.

After this you will enter the walls of Islamic Cairo from the Gate of El Nasr (Gate of Victory) and start a fascinating walk through the neighborhoods. Much of your walk will be on Al-Muizz street, which has been Islamic Cairo's main thoroughfare since the 10th Century. Many of Cairo's ancient historic attractions are located on this street, and there is unique architecture and culture to be found everywhere you look. There are beautiful mosques, Islamic schools that have existed for many centuries, and ancient souks.

Al Muizz Street Aerial View

Al Muizz Street Aerial View

Al-Muizz street is often called the largest Islamic open-air museum in the world.

Next is a walk in Cairo's Old Bazaar, Khan el-Khalili. This souk is always full of tourists and Egyptians and the colors, smells and sounds have to be experienced to be believed. Depending on how much time you spend at each attraction and experience on this day, you will have the option today to break for lunch (authentic local cuisine is recommended and your Egyptologist Tour Director can make suggestions) at a time of your choice, or return to your hotel for a late lunch.

Next up is an exploration of Coptic Cairo. The Coptic Christians built their churches inside the Roman fortress interestingly named Babylon. Egypt was a Christian nation for three centuries between the 3rd and 7th century and the beautiful churches in Old Cairo were built mainly during that period.

Coptic Christians make up between 8 to 15% of Egypt's population today, depending on the source of information, and their unique culture and architecture is fascinating to observe. Much of the delight in this short exploration is just walking through the ancient neighborhoods, taking in this unique culture and architecture.

The Hanging Church Entrance

The Hanging Church Entrance

Impressive churches you will visit include the famous Hanging Church, parts of which are purported to belong to the 3rd century.

Another church will be the 5th century Saints Sergius and Bacchus Church, which was built over the crypt where Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus are said to have rested during their journey in Egypt. You will have the opportunity to enter the crypt and view the details, including the tiny alcove where the infant Jesus slept.

Your last stop can be at the Synagogue of Ben Ezra. There has been a house of worship in this location since the 4th century, first a church and then the synagogue. As less than a dozen Jewish people now make Cairo their home, the synagogue and its beautiful interior now serve as a museum.

Day 4: Cairo - Aswan. In the mid-morning, after rush hour, you will be assisted with your check-out and you will now proceed to one of two museums. We do not expect the oft-delayed Grand Egyptian Museum to open until 2022, quite possibly at the end of that year. It will be the one you visit if it is open by the time you travel.

Grand Egyptian Museum Option: You are driven to the brand new Grand Egyptian Museum, which, at 5.2 million sq. feet, is the largest archaeological museum on our planet. This incredible collection of 50,000 antiquities includes the vast and amazing Tutankhamun Collection, a 3200-year-old 83 ton and 32.8-foot-tall red granite statue of Ramses II, as well as a plethora of artifacts that have never been displayed before. Viewing all the treasures in the museum would take many days and so your Egyptologist Tour Director will tell you about the possible highlights and, based on your preferences, design your visit accordingly. Just as during the rest of your tour, your Tour Director will regale you with fascinating tales about the major exhibits that you are experiencing. Lunch at one of the restaurants at the museum is recommended at a time of your choice.

National Museum of Egyptian Civilization Option: This new museum was inaugurated in April of 2021 with a widely promoted made for TV event which included a spectacle filled procession as many of the best treasures in the iconic Egyptian Museum were transported to their new home in this new museum. Although the biggest draw will be the 22 mummies of the greatest Pharaohs and their collections of treasures, this museum is unique because it displays a holistic view of the awe-inspiring history of Egyptian Civilization, ranging from Predynastic times to the 2000 year long Pharaonic period to Greco-Roman, Coptic, Islamic, and contemporary times. What you experience during your visit to the museum will be based on your preferences as relayed to your Egyptologist Tour Director. You will break for a late lunch after exploring the museum.

The Aswan

Aswan

You are driven to the airport where you are assisted with your check-in to your early evening flight to Aswan.

Arrive at Aswan and you are driven to your spectacular historic hotel where you are assisted with your check-in. The Old Cataract has hosted royalty, such as Princess Diana and Tsar Nicholas II, and many top leaders of the world as well as celebrities for over a century. After staying here, Agatha Christie set part of 'Death on the Nile' in the hotel, and the motion picture was partially filmed here. Guests who want to really enjoy this legendary hotel and its extensive facilities can ask us to add an additional day at Aswan. Other activities such as a felucca cruise to the Nubian Village can be added.

Day 5: Aswan - Abu Simbel Excursion. In the morning your Egyptologist Tour Director will accompany you to the Aswan airport and assist you in boarding the short flight to Abu Simbel. Arrive at Abu Simbel and you are ushered to your private vehicle and driven to Ramses II's most awe-inspiring creation.

Located on the western banks of Lake Naseer, these colossal temples are still accessible to humanity because of one of the most amazing archaeological engineering feats of all time. Between 1964 and 1968 everything in and outside these temples were cut into massive blocks weighing up to 30 tons each and transported to a location 213 feet higher than where they were originally constructed. UNESCO and the Egyptian Government orchestrated a massive campaign with a large and diverse international team of specialists and accomplished this incomprehensibly difficult project so as to save the temples from the rising waters of the Nile to be caused by the impending opening of the Aswan High Dam.

The Abu Simbel Temples are part of the 'Nubian Monuments' UNESCO World Heritage Site, which also includes Philae, near Aswan. Built in the 13th Century BC over 20 years, these two temples were created to establish, in the minds of the Nubian people, Ramses II's power and near-divinity, as well as the might of Egypt.

The Great Temple Entrance

The Great Temple Entrance

The first temple, known as The Great Temple, has four massive 66-foot-tall statues of Ramses II seated on thrones at its entrance.

It is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful temples in Egypt. Much smaller statues of the royal family, including his wife Nefertari, are situated around the seated monarchs' legs. Amazing historic treasures await visitors inside the temple, which has a triangular layout reducing in scale as you go deeper to the main sanctum. There are beautiful statues, gorgeous bas-reliefs, impressive pillars, and objects devoted to the three ancient Egyptian Gods to whom Ramses II dedicated this temple.

A short distance away is The Small Temple, dedicated to Goddess Hathor and Queen Nefertari. This temple is only the second temple in Ancient Egypt's many millennia long history that is dedicated to the consort of a king, and is one of the very few times such a major monument presented statues of the king and his queen that were equal in size. Surrounding the entrance are three 33-foot statues on each side, with statutes of Ramses II bookending the two statues of Queen Nefertari on both sides. The interior of the temple offers amazing treasures and is similarly beautiful as The Great Temple, although smaller in scale.

After exploring these wonders, you will return to the airport and fly back to Aswan, returning to your hotel for some relaxation.

In the afternoon you will visit another of the Aswan regions greatest attractions, the Temple of Isis. Philae Island was the original island home of these massive structures and they were moved as part of the incredible project that moved Abu Simbel's Temples. This awe-inspiring complex was moved to Agilika Island by the Egyptian Government and UNESCO as Philae Island had existing flooding issues even before the Aswan High Dam was constructed - it is now mostly submerged.

The Philae Temple

The Philae Temple

The Temple of Isis on the island is a part of the Nubian Monuments UNESCO World Heritage Site and was dedicated to the Gods Isis, Osiris, and Horus.

Among other subjects, the amazing bas-reliefs on the temple's walls portray how Isis brought Osiris back to life, gave birth to Horus, and mummified Osiris after his death. It is purported to be Osiris' final resting place. Originally built around 700 BC, the temple complex had subsequent additions made by both Egyptians and, later on, Roman rulers. The Temples of Philae were a major pilgrimage site for Nubians, Egyptians, and people from far away lands. The amazing details on the walls, statues and columns are among the most impressive you will find anywhere, and the worship of Isis continued here until the 6th Century.

Christians had established a foothold on Philae during the fourth century, and they initially co-existed with the ongoing religious practices at the Philae Temple. In the 6th century they took over and converted parts of the complex to a church, defacing a number of significant monuments and structures in the process. Just as many of Ancient Egypt's most important sites, some of the most valuable artifacts of the Temple were removed by European archaeologists during later colonial times. Your visit will include the Pylon Panorama Ticket, which allows you to use the steps to reach the roof of a Pylon and take in the incredible views of the complex and the Nile.

Sunset on the Nile at Aswan

Sunset on the Nile at Aswan

In the early evening you have two options to select from. The first option is to board a traditional felucca and enjoy a cruise on the Nile and watch the spectacular sunset over this fabled region.

The other option is to return to Philae Island by speedboat for the Sound and Light Show. We do not recommend most Sound and Light shows at any of the destinations we offer as they are usually sub-standar, but the Philae Temple spectacle is an exception and is worth experiencing.

Day 6: Aswan - Kom Ombo - Edfu - Esna - Luxor. This morning you are assisted with your checkout and then you will begin your drive to ancient Thebes (Luxor). You have two drive options on this day, and we strongly recommend the latter option. You can choose to take the direct desert highway that will get you to Luxor in about four hours, or you can spend most of the morning and early afternoon driving by the Nile while stopping at 1 or more of three of Egypt's most amazing ancient temple complexes. The Temples at Kom Ombo, Edfu and Esna are the only stops on most luxury cruises between Aswan and Luxor for very good reasons.

You can also ask your Egyptologist Tour Director to customize your journey and only stop at one or two of the three temple complexes. We believe that the Temple of Horus at Edfu is a must while in Egypt - it is quite possibly the best-preserved ancient temple in Egypt. The Temple at Kom Ombo, although not as well preserved, is also fascinating with its detailed reliefs and the fact that it was dedicated to two Gods, the crocodile-headed Sobek and the falcon-headed Horus. Although unique in many ways, the Temple of Khnum at Esna can be left out by all but the most ardent archaeology loving explorers. It is a smaller site with 24 beautifully carved pillars and a similarly detailed ceiling and requires driving across the Nile (adding about 45 minutes of driving between Aswan and Luxor) to its west bank and then descending, and later ascending, about 30 feet of stairs.

Arrive at your boutique luxury hotel at Luxor and you are assisted with your check-in. Welcome to ancient Thebes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you have chosen to take the quicker route to Luxor, your Egyptologist Tour Director and vehicle are available to you for explorations in the Luxor region this afternoon.

Day 7: Luxor. Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, Valley of the Queens and the Colossi of Memnon. You will meet your Egyptologist Tour Director in the lobby and accompany him to the hotel jetty, from where you will enjoy a 10-minute speedboat ride to the other bank of the enchanting Nile River. This is a significantly shorter journey than the drive option which requires driving a long way to get to the closest bridge over the Nile. We recommend you get a packed snack from your hotel for this day's excursion, or have a fairly late lunch upon your return to your hotel.

Your vehicle will be waiting for you when you disembark your speedboat.

Valley of the Kings

Valley of the Kings

You will explore the most impressive tombs in these barren and scenic valleys.

Our selection of premium tomb's means that, unlike almost all other visitors, you will not have long waits in line under the desert sun. This is because the admission fee for the Valley of the Kings includes 3 of the approximately 8 standard Tombs that are open at most times in the Valley (tickets are stamped at each Tomb's entrance), and these standard Tombs are what is included by cruise and tour operators. Capacity is controlled at all Tombs and the popular standard Tombs are nice but not as impressive and have long lines. The Tombs we take you to require separate individual entrance tickets (which are fairly high for Tombs like Nefatari's Tomb and the Tomb of Seti I) and have, at most, very short lines.

We can add/remove and change the Tombs to individual guests' preferences with prior notice, and your Egyptologist Tour Director will be able to change things to a certain extent before you enter the valleys. Please note that the majority of the Tombs are always closed so as to protect them from too many visitors, or for ongoing restoration, and the caretakers may close a Tomb we include just before your visit - in such a situation, a more than adequate replacement will be offered by your Egyptologist Tour Director.

Camera Photography (flash photography and video cameras are not permitted) requires additional tickets (which are included in your tour pricing), but can often be restricted at one or more Tombs without any prior notice. Some of the Tombs, such as the magnificent Tomb of Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens, currently do not permit any photography except with cell phones, but the option to even use your phone's camera is subject to change at any time. Please note that photography rules are strictly enforced.

Your exploration will proceed as follows:

1: The Tomb of Ramses V & VI (KV9) - This 340-foot-long Tomb was started by Ramses V but later taken over by his successor, Ramses VI.

Tomb of Ramses V & VI

Tomb of Ramses V & VI

The paintings, bas-reliefs and hieroglyphs covering the walls and ceilings are among the best preserved in the Valley, making for an incredibly colorful Tomb.

2: The Tomb of Tutankhamun (King Tut) (KV62) - This is one of the smaller Tombs in the valley. The Tomb was discovered in 1922 with all its treasures intact, and the majority of these artifacts are now the most impressive section of displays in the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza. You will be able to see young King Tut's mummified remains in the Tomb, and the glittering shrines in his burial chamber.

3: The Tomb of Seti I (KV17) - This is the longest Tomb in the valley at over 450 feet, and also one of the deepest. There are incredible decorations on the walls and ceilings, and its vivid colors are a delight to behold. A steep entry fee eliminates the long lines found for most tombs, and those who do not visit Nefertari's Tomb in the Valley of the Queens usually feel that this was the most impressive Tomb that they have seen.

4: The Tomb of Nefertari (QV66) Valley of the Queens - On the way to the Valley of the Queens you will stop along the way at the Temple of Hatshepsut, as detailed below. Located a short distance away in the Valley of the Queens, Nefertari's Tomb is, in our opinion, the most striking Tomb in the Luxor region, and among the least visited due to its entry fee. The 5600 square foot Tomb has amazing multicolored artwork on its polished stone walls, and the incredible beauty of the legendary queen is depicted in scores of paintings.

Nefertari's Tomb

Nefertari's Tomb

Ramses II immortalized his beloved queen repeatedly, as in the awe-inspiring Temples at Abu Simbel, and the Tomb certainly achieves what it was intended to do.

Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. Before reaching the Valley of the Queens and Nefertari's Tomb, you will stop along the way at this wonderfully restored temple complex. This impressive 3500-year-old structure is built on 3 levels reaching almost 100 feet at the top. During your travels your Egyptologist Tour Director will share some fascinating tales about Queen Hatshepsut, one of the smartest rulers of this ancient world.

Colossi of Memnon. The last stop on this exploration will be at these two massive 14 Century BC statues of King Amenhotep III. These ancient structures reach about 60 feet high and are estimated to each weigh about 720 tons. Unlike most visitors, you will visit these at the end of your exploration on this day so that you can be among the first to arrive at the Valley of the Kings in the morning.

In the early to mid-afternoon, depending on how much time you enjoy at the above attractions, you will return to your hotel for some relaxation and a meal, if you are so inclined.

Luxor Temple Late Afternoon Visit. You can enjoy a very short walk on the scenic Nile Corniche to the Luxor Temple, or you can choose to be driven. Please note that you will need to ignore the hawkers on this stretch as you walk - your Tour Director cannot dissuade them from their efforts. If you want to avoid the hawkers, a very short drive can replace this walk. The best time to visit this magnificent 3400-year-old Temple Complex is in the late afternoon as this allows you to first explore its incredible attractions in daylight.

Luxor Sunset Lights

Luxor Sunset Lights

After sunset you will be mesmerized as the artfully placed spotlights illuminate the facade and the scores of ancient attractions the complex contains.

After spending as much time as you feel like at the temple, take in the wonderful view of the similarly lit Avenue of Sphinxes before returning to your hotel.

Day 8: Luxor - Cairo OR the Red Sea. You have the option of a very early start in the morning for a balloon ride over Ancient Thebes - you will need to inform us about your preference while booking your tour.

Karnak Entrance

Karnak Entrance

Your destination this morning is the incredible Karnak Temple Complex.

Occupying about 200 acres, the Karnak Temple and its structures are purported to be the largest religious complex ever to be built. Construction of the first parts started about 5000 years ago, and continued over the reign of about 30 Pharaohs. The site is made up of four parts, out of which only the largest part, the Precinct of Amun-Re, is open to the public. This is the second most visited site in Egypt after the Giza Pyramids. Experience the hundreds of ancient structures, including the awe-inspiring Great Hypostyle Hall, a 50,000 square foot Hall with 134 massive beautifully carved pillars. 122 of these pillars are 33 feet tall, while the other 12 are 69 feet high and almost 10 feet in diameter.

After your exploration of the Karnak Complex, you will return to your historical hotel to freshen-up, after which you are assisted with your check-out before breaking for lunch.

If you would like time on the Red Sea: Many of our guests choose to end their exploration of Egypt with a few days at the luxurious Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh on the Red Sea. Besides the crystal-clear waters and wonderful beaches, this region also offers some of the world's best diving and snorkeling. The resort is a 4-to-4.5-hour comfortable drive from your lodging in Luxor. If you are interested in adding a stay at the Red Sea, at the Oberoi or any other Red Sea resort, please let us know at the time of reservation and we will be happy to give you options to consider.

If Luxor is your last destination in Egypt: You are assisted with your checkout in the morning at any time before 11 am, depending on the departure details of your international flight from Cairo. Please note that most outbound international flights from Cairo depart in the early morning. If your international flight is in the late evening or early the next morning, you will have the services of your Tour Director and chauffeur at Luxor until your late afternoon/early evening flight to Cairo.

For those guests who have time before they need to fly to Cairo, after checking out in the late morning you will accompany your Egyptologist Tour Director for short visits to two of Egypt's most fascinating museums. If you do not want to visit the museums, you have the option of other activities - your Egyptologist Tour Director will make suggestions based on your preferences. Both museums are a few minutes' walk on the beautiful Nile Corniche. Please note that, as always, you will need to ignore the hawkers on this stretch as you walk and that very short drives can replace these two short walks. You will walk by the Luxor Temple Complex in the 5 to 7 minutes it takes you to reach the Mummification Museum. Another 10-to-12-minute walk on the Nile Corniche will take you to the Luxor Museum.

The Mummification Museum offers great information on this ancient Egyptian process, along with many more fascinating exhibits. The process of mummification, and the materials used in the process, are displayed in detail. The mummies on display include the 3000 plus year old mummy of Masaharta, the High Priest of Amun at Thebes. There are also mummies of cats, fish and crocodiles.

The Luxor Museum has a lot fewer treasures than the abundance of exhibits found in Cairo's museums, but the quality of the artifacts that they display is unsurpassed, including amazing pieces from the Karnak Temple Complex.

Luxor Museum

Luxor Museum

The displays are widely spaced and identified very well with clear signage.

You will be driven to Luxor airport and assisted in boarding your flight to Cairo. Arrive at Cairo and collect your baggage, after which your Tour Director will accompany you to your in-terminal hotel and assist you with your check-in. Bid farewell to your Tour Director at this time. Please note that your upgraded suite includes club lounge access.

Day 9: Cairo - International Flight. An Easy Tours Facilitator will assist you with your checkout in the morning (any time before 11 am) and then walk you to the international terminal where they will introduce you to your VIP Airport Representative and bid you farewell. You will then be escorted through the complete departure process, including check-in, security and immigration.
Additional services can be added upon request.
Our services end at Cairo Airport.
