This tour is perfect for those who are interested in seeing the highlights of Egypt in a limited amount of time. Artisans of Leisure travelers are escorted throughout Egypt by their own private Egyptologist guide and have their own private drivers in each location.
Begin in Cairo. With your own private guide and driver, experience the city’s most interesting cultural attractions, neighborhoods and markets—our tours offer the most in-depth, sophisticated Cairo touring available. In addition to visiting well-known attractions such as the Citadel, Egyptian Museum and Khan al-Khalili bazaar, also tour our favorite neighborhoods filled with beautiful Fatimid, Islamic, Mameluke, Ottoman, Coptic and Art Deco architecture; well-preserved medieval residences formerly occupied by wealthy merchants; and fascinating markets and shopping streets. Also take a private excursion to the impressive Pyramids of Giza.
Fly to Aswan, considered Egypt’s loveliest city. Enjoy touring of Aswan’s highlights, including the stunning Temple of Philae. Your own private Egyptologist will accompany you as you drive from Aswan to Luxor, stopping en route to visit the extraordinary archaeological sites along the Nile in Edfu and Kom Ombo. Next, explore Luxor, a bustling town built on the site of the ancient capital city of Thebes. Discover Luxor's most fascinating and important archaeological sites, including the Luxor and Karnak Temples and the Valleys of the Kings and of the Queens.
