Then connect to Dubai for 5 nights exploring the city of the future.


This 12-day Middle Eastern vacation takes you to Cairo and Luxor to explore the treasures of Ancient Egypt before connecting to the futuristic city of Dubai. It features deluxe accommodations and private tours.

Your journey begins in Cairo, the “Mother of the World” and the largest city in the Middle East. Delve into the fascinating history of the pharaohs at Giza, where Cheops Pyramid stands tall as the last remaining wonder of the ancient world. Explore the pyramids and ponder the enigmatic nature of the Sphinx before connecting to the Egyptian Musuem in the centre of town, where you’ll find the world’s largest collection of ancient Egyptian treasures. Spend a day in nearby Alexandria on the coast to enjoy the Mediterranean atmosphere and see landmarks and historic monuments, including Pompey’s Pillar, the Catacombs, the Alexandria National Museum, and the Alexandria Library, a stunningly-designed modern building that resurrects the legacy of the Great Library of Alexandria.

Fly south to Luxor on the Nile River and spend a full day exploring temples and treasures. Start in the Valley of the Kings, where the tombs of Seti I and Tutankhamen are found. Continue to the Valley of the Queens to see the Colossi of Memnon. Learn about Egypt’s ancient festivals at the Temple of Luxor before touring the largest and oldest temple compound on the planet at the Temple of Karnak. Connect back to Cairo for another night before flying on to Dubai the following morning.

In Dubai, you’ll explore the city that defines the innovation and optimism of the 21st century. A city tour showcases some landmarks, taking you from the Palm Jumeirah to the Gold and Spice Souks, the Dubai Frame, and finally the Dubai Mall for a shopping spree. Another day, explore the desert surrounding the city at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Ride a camel across the dunes, try out sandboarding, and feast on a delicious breakfast with gorgeous views of the desert in the morning. The rest of your time in Dubai is at leisure to shop and sightsee. Be sure to visit the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, to enjoy the best views of the city from its observation deck.

At the end of your stay, connect to the airport for onward travels.

Full Day Egyptian Museum Pyramids and Sphinx with Lunch

The Egyptian Museum is the most important depository of Egyptian antiquities anywhere in the world. It features artifacts from the Pharaonic and Graeco-Roman periods, including the celebrated mummies of ancient Egypt's king and Tut Ankh Amun treasures.

The Pyramids and Sphinx were reckoned by the Greeks to be one of the 'seven wonders of the world'. A single pyramid is built of 2,300,000 blocks, each weighing an average of two and one-half tons. In the face of such immensity, one cannot help but feel the wonder and awe that so many writers and artists have sought to convey over the centuries. The Cheops Pyramid is especially interesting since its interior burial chambers are open for inspection by the public. Not far from the Pyramids is the Great Sphinx of Giza, which dates from the time of Chephren (2620BC). Hewn from natural yellowish limestone and standing 65 feet high and 187 feet long, this unforgettable statue combines the head of a Pharaoh with a lion's body.
