This is the ultimate luxury tour of Egypt.

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.

With your own private guide and driver, 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; also visit the even older pyramids of Dahshur and Saqqara—the Step Pyramid of Djoser is the prototype for the pyramids of Giza. 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 the Zahra, the most luxurious boat on the Nile. The leisurely itinerary is specially designed to visit ports of call when other cruise ships are not there—allowing exploration of the extraordinary archaeological sites such as the Temple of Philae, Temple of Dendara and Valleys of the Kings and Queens without the crowds. The tour concludes with one night in Cairo.

Upon request, arrangements can be made to tour monuments usually closed to the public or museums outside of opening hours.
