Giza/Cairo SphinxEgypt

Time travel in Giza - from the pyramids to the Nile

Egypt is synonymous with historical artefacts and magnificent diving spots - with hospitality and historical wealth. With so many options, why choose just one? Cairo, with its lively streets and colourful bazaars such as the Chan-El-Chalili souk, awakens all the senses - time stands still when you visit the Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza. It is almost unimaginable that these man-made masterpieces were built over 4500 years ago.

From Cairo, the Nile cruise takes you to the south of Egypt. Here the amazement continues: the imposing Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings in Luxor take you back to another era - en route to Aswan, you can enjoy the palm-fringed riverside landscapes and a marvellous natural backdrop. Whatever highlights you combine on your holiday in Egypt, a world full of wonder, beauty and inspiration awaits you.
