Entrust our passionate Elite Tour Club guides to lead you to where their inspired mentors, the ‘Modern Egyptologists’ of nearly 200 years ago, mapped, excavated and recorded newfound hoards at the Great Pyramids of Giza. Those archaeologists knew nowhere more wondrous than this glorious outpost of Cairo. Khufu's Pyramid is one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Ancient World’; the last on that seminal list to exist. Khafre and Menkaure Pyramids complete the colossal trio, with the Great Sphinx looking on and guarding Giza Plateau through the ages.

Cairo is Africa’s city of 15 million — they don’t come with more residents on the entire continent. It is hot-headed and frenetic with bustle, bazaars and traffic chaos, yet the Islamic edifices stand ennobled. The city’s Egyptian Museum exhibits Tutankhamun’s uprooted tomb, it epitomises dynasties that buried their goods and chattels. And all because, “you can’t take it with you” was so blissfully unthinkable.

Founded in 331 BC by Alexander the Great, his modest namesake sprawls along 32 km of sparkling Mediterranean coastline. It was Egypt's capital until the conquest of 641 AD, when the distinction moved to Fustat — later swallowed by Cairo. Alexander’s Roman column, Pompey’s Pillar, rises from the ancient acropolis. But we can’t wait to show you an Elite Tour Club favourite, Kom Al-Dikka. It is a triumph of 30 years’ excavation; a Roman theatre with enough marble seating for an audience of 800.

The Western Desert covers two-thirds of Egypt, it spans infinitely westward, with an occasional oasis in focus — a distant green smear amid red-hot aridity. Cool down in The Red Sea where beachside havens, Marsa Alam, El Quseir and Port Ghalib, host dramatic dives and unbeatable coral snorkelling. Sailing is best experienced by taking a traditional Nile felucca cruise from Aswan, where desert islands and the Temples of Philae and Kom Ombo are magnificent landing sites.

Moses’ 2,285 metre highpoint for the world’s greatest, mostly ‘not to-do list’, Mount Sinai has to be ascended, but many prefer other Elite Tour Club members to achieve this summit of The Ten Commandments.

Way to the south, on the east bank of the Nile, Luxor is the evocative site of the ancient city of Thebes — another former capitol of Egypt. Here, because its temple and associated ruins upstage the modern city, Luxor has earned its reputation as ‘the world’s greatest open-air museum.’ Across the River Nile is Necropolis, a feast of temples, formidable tombs and the magnificent Valleys of the Kings and Queens.

Egypt Tour Highlights

Entrust our Elite Tour Club leaders to show you to where their inspired mentors, the ‘Modern Egyptologists’ of nearly 200 years ago, mapped, excavated and recorded newfound hoards at the Great Pyramids of Giza. Standing here, you will understand why those archaeologists were so smitten about this glorious outpost of Cairo. Khufu's Pyramid is one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Ancient World’ — the last remaining Wonder on that glorious list to actually exist.
