This tour provides comprehensive private touring of Egypt’s most popular destinations.

Artisans of Leisure travelers are escorted throughout Egypt by their own private Egyptologist guide (including on Nile cruises) and have their own private drivers in each location. We use suites on the Nile cruises.

First, experience Cairo as an insider. Our Egypt specialists have left no stone unturned in their quest to uncover 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, Hanging Church 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; fascinating markets and shopping streets; and smaller, lesser-known museums dedicated to Islamic art, applied arts, Egyptian culture, Impressionist paintings and more.

One day, take a private excursion to the impressive Pyramids of Giza. If desired, attend the impressive Sound & Light Show there one evening. Also visit the even older pyramids of Dahshur and Saqqara—the Step Pyramid of Djoser is the prototype for the pyramids of Giza. Continue to Aswan, home to a large Nubian community and Egypt’s southernmost—and quite possibly loveliest—city. During introductory touring, learn about Nubian life, history and crafts at the excellent Nubian Museum. Then fly to Abu Simbel and explore some of the most beautiful Pharaonic temples in existence.

Cruise the Nile River aboard a luxury boat. Our travelers stay in a top suite and have their own private Egyptologist to accompany them on private tours of the extraordinary archaeological sites such as the Temple of Philae in Aswan, Temple of Horus in Edfu and Valleys of the Kings and Queens in Luxor. Upon request, arrangements can be made to tour monuments usually closed to the public or museums outside of opening hours.

The tour concludes with one night in Cairo.
