Egypt: From the Nile to the Red Sea
Day 1-3 Cairo
Allow your senses to be assaulted in the throbbing Egyptian capital. Strung out along the banks of the River Nile, this is a metrolpolis that’s existed for millennia. Don’t miss the famous Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, in the city’s suburbs, but there’s plenty to see in the centre. Ascend the Cairo Tower to get your bearings before visiting sights like the City of the Dead, the Khan-el-Khalili bazaar and of course the Egyptian Museum.

Day 4-7 Luxor
Travel back in time in this sprawling Nile-side city in which modern buildings jostle for space alongside ancient monuments. Examine the past as you visit the area’s many historic temples, tombs and museums or explore the popular souks that offer jewellery, spices, and other local treasures.

Day 8-11 Gouna
Head to the purpose-built resort of El Gouna, the result of one man’s quest to find the perfect spot to construct a home by the sea. Soon, his friends and others followed, and today, El Gouna boasts some of the best golf courses and water sports the Red Sea has to offer, including scuba diving, windsurfing, kite surfing, parasailing and more.
