This tour is an ideal combination of Egypt’s cultural, archaeological and natural highlights. 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 all 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. Then fly to Abu Simbel and explore some of the most beautiful Pharaonic temples in existence at the first light of day­—the most beautiful time to visit.

Cruise the Nile River aboard a luxury boat and enjoy 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.

Fly to Sharm el-Sheikh and discover the incredible natural beauty of the Sinai peninsula and the Red Sea coast. During leisure time, relax at your luxurious resort and explore the sea’s brilliantly colored coral reefs and abundant marine life. One day, enjoy a private excursion to St. Catherine’s Monastery, an ancient Greek Orthodox monastery nestled at the foot of Mt. Sinai in an area of profound biblical significance. See the monastery’s basilica with its sixth-century mosaics; its priceless icon collection; the beautiful garden thick with olive and fruit trees; and the library, which contains the world’s second-most important collection (after the Vatican’s) of early Christian manuscripts.

The tour concludes with one night in Cairo.
