If you are looking for a change this Christmas, a swap from the wet and cold weather to a golden, sunny weather… then this trip is for you! Spend your Christmas morning on the beach soaking up the sun while listening to the soothing waves.
There is absolutely nothing that this tour leaves out. I am of course exaggerating yet it truly gives you a big whiff of all that this country puts forth. Come and view the Pyramids, the Sphinx and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Take in the magnificent temple of Abu Simbel (transfer by bus), view the romantic and well preserved Philae Temple in Aswan, the twin temples of Kom Ombo and the Edfu temple, bask in the sunset sun and partake of a Bedouin dinner in Hurghada by the coast and check out the green oasis of Fayoum encircled by the desert. Then head to Wadi El Rayan and behold Lake Qaroun in the midst of the desert and visit Tunis Village which is a potters haven.

Good morning. Enjoy your breakfast before checking out of the hotel. A new day, a new adventure. It?s on to the magnificent and otherworldly temple of Abu Simbel. In an air-conditioned vehicle, we will make our way by road (3 hour trip one way) to the temple. Commemorating Ramses II and his victory at the battle of Kadesh, the temples are a miracle of engineering as twice a year, the inner sanctuary receives the sunbeams that light up three of the 4 sculptures. This incredible, hard to believe feat will keep the God of Darkness Ptah in obscurity. Back in Aswan, you will board your 5-star cruise ship. The rest of the day is yours.

Good morning. Today we are in for an early start in order to avoid the sultry hot sun of noontime.

Just absorb the atmosphere as you walk along and go into some of the tombs. You will proceed to Deir el Bahari and walk down the colonnaded avenue of Queen Hatshepsut?s temple. Then walk along and feel tiny next to the towering Colossi of Memnon. Lunch will be on board the cruise ship and then the afternoon is yours.

Check them out and others on our list. Overnight at Cairo hotel. (Breakfast
Oh wow. This huge Oasis is merely two hours away from the city and hides its beauty so well, you would never suspect it holds such wonder when you are approaching it. Fayoum is enormously rich archeological sites from different eras, has a history in pottery making and is blessed with plenty of natural treasures. First, we shall enjoy a visit to the ancient ruin of the city of Karanis, known also as Kom Aushim dating back to Greco-Roman times. Then it’s on to the Water Wheels ( said to number 200) dating back to the Ptolemaic era and takes in Lake Qarun or Birket Qarun in Arabic, Moeris in Greek is considered the oldest natural lake in the world. It is a saltwater latke having been a freshwater later in prehistory. Is that not amazing? And so we go on now to Qasr Qaroun, where the ancient town of Dionysias was located and the Temple of Stone still stands. We shall then go on to survey Wadi el Rayan in the western desert, a unique nature protectorate, with its freshwater lakes and stunning dunes made for skidding in a 4×4.

After breakfast, our representative will come by to pick you up and drop you off at the airport in time for your flight back home. Ma al salama. We wish you well and hope to welcome you back to Egypt for some more of our adventures.
Dîner croisière sur le Nil :
Selon votre heure d'arrivée, vous pouvez complémenter votre soirée en réservant un dîner croisière sur le Nil. En fonction de vos disponibilités, votre chauffeur vous transférera pour profiter des divertissements à bord d'une croisière 5* standard ou de luxe sur le Nil, selon votre préférence.
Savourez un dîner délicieusement cuisiné, préparé avec amour et soin par nos meilleurs chefs.
Spectacle son et lumière aux Pyramides :
Selon votre heure d'arrivée, vous pouvez assister au spectacle son et lumière. Le spectacle se déroule sur le plateau des Pyramides de Gizeh. Un excellent moyen d'avoir un aperçu de ce qui vous attend la prochaine journée. Regardez les Pyramides et le Sphinx s’éclairer en différentes couleurs tout en écoutant l'histoire derrière la découverte des deux grandes merveilles se narrer.
L'Égypte offre une grande variété d'hôtels 3*. Les prix varient de 12$ à 20$ par personne et par nuit en chambre double. Je vous proposer de visiter les répertoires des hôtels pour les tarifs et les emplacements. Les hébergements pour les routards ne sont pas populaires en Égypte, bien que quelques-uns soient disponibles.
La meilleure période pour visiter l'Égypte est entre octobre et mai. C'est la haute saison des voyages, la température es plus basse, mais relativement plus chaude que dans l'hémisphère nord. C’est la haute saison avec deux périodes les plus attractives: Noël / Nouvel An et la fêtes de Pâques, pendant lesquelles les hôtels et les croisières augmenteront leurs prix. Cela peut signifier que certains hôtels deviennent remarquablement chers, il est donc fortement conseillé de faire vos réservations très tôt, même pour les hôtels à bas prix. Les 4 autres mois sont la basse saison. De mai à septembre, les températures sont très élevées, notamment en Haute-Égypte (Louxor et le sud du pays). Ceci dit, cette période vous offre l’opportunité de découvrir l'Égypte en toute tranquillité et ce en ayant l'avantage de visiter les sites sans les foules des écoliers et des touristes.
Even though we arrange tours… the best BUDGET way is to do it yourself.
It is easier to sit back, have someone make all arrangements for you and just zip, worry-free from place to place (and some people wouldn’t do it any other way; it is a vacation after all LOL). But if you’re willing to put in the work, are flexible, easily adaptable, easy going and you’re willing to deal with haggling etc. it is not impossible to do Egypt without an operator.
In 10 days you can definitely visit three cities. You can even add Aswan in there. For most first-time visitors, 2 days in Cairo is enough. It is an overwhelming city, especially if you’re going about on your own.
If you’re going to do this yourself, I suggest at least securing ground transportation for the day. That can be a hired private car or taxi but you don’t want to be wasting time flagging down and haggling with taxis at every turn. Having pre-arranged transport will take lots of the hassle out of doing things yourself. Having a good guide book is essential but if you can, book a guide or two to break up the monotony and really help with understanding the sites and bringing them to life. There are many good budget hotels in Luxor, Cairo and Aswan, which can be booked on sites such as hostelworld.com. You pre-pay 10% of the booking when it’s made and then pay the rest on arrival. The hostels do tours as well.
If you’re a student, be sure to bring your ISIC card for 50% discount on tickets to the sites.
If you decide you need help arranging all or part of the trip, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Passez quelques nuits au Caire, prenez le train de nuit pour Assouan, passez encore deux nuits là-bas, visitez Abou Simbel et le Temple de Philæ, peut-être aussi Kôm Ombo. Ensuite, vous pouvez faire une croisière sur le Nil vers Louxor, passer deux nuits à visiter les Vallées des Rois et des Reines et le complexe du Temple de Karnak. Ensuite, vous pouvez retourner au Caire et de là partir visiter station balnéaire de la Mer Rouge, sur la péninsule du Sinaï ou sur la côte et y passer quelques nuits.
La haute saison est d'octobre à mai, la basse saison est donc de juin à septembre (les mois d'été et les plus chauds) et les prix sont à leur plus bas.
Voyager seul pour une femme n’a jamais posé de problèmes, mais vous devez parfois être sujet à un harcèlement verbal ennuyeux et cela arrive aussi aux femmes égyptiennes. La meilleure chose à faire est de l’ignorer et de continuer votre chemin. Cela peut parfois devenir très irritant, mais votre réaction ne résoudra pas le problème. Il n'y a rien d'interdit en Égypte. Vous n'avez pas besoin de vous couvrir ou quoi que ce soit, mais pour éviter d'attirer l'attention sur vous, veuillez couvrir vos épaules et votre décolleté et ne pas porter de short. Il s'agit simplement de se sentir à l'aise et de s’adapter. Les meilleures chaussures sont des baskets car vous allez beaucoup marcher, le sol est poussiéreux et les rues sont parfois sales et en mauvais état.
Ceux recommandés sont: le vaccin contre la fièvre jaune (commune à la plupart des régions d'Afrique), le vaccin du tétanos et le vaccin contre l’hépatite. Sinon, prenez simplement les précautions habituelles lorsque vous voyagez dans des régions chaudes du monde. Buvez de l'eau en bouteille, évitez la glace et à moins que vous ne soyez dans un hôtel et un restaurant bien connus, évitez de manger des légumes verts non cuits. Évitez les stands de nourriture au bord de la route. Apportez un bon spray anti-insectes car plein de moustiques peuvent apparaîtront la nuit. A tout prix, évitez le contact avec les chiens de rue, la rage présente encore un risque en Égypte. Assurez-vous d'avoir des préservatifs. Ils sont également disponibles dans toutes les pharmacies. Apportez une petite trousse médicale, avec des analgésiques et des comprimés contre la diarrhée à portée de main en tout temps. Nous vous conseillons également d’avoir une assurance de voyage.
On Organizing your Trip – Alone or in a couple or with friends and you wish to organize everything yourself, please let the hotel know of your plans before leaving. Should you get lost, the hotel will be able to act on your behalf. Also arm yourself with hotel address and telephone number, always, as you may need it. Be aware that you might be ripped-off. Like many tourist destinations, Egypt has its ?wolves?, preying on unsuspecting, trustful travelers. Often the total cost will be more than if you had arranged it through a travel agent or your hotel and a lot less enjoyable.
On independent travel, for a first timer it is not advised. It much better to take a guide. You don?t need to book a package tour, groups can be arranged here. First and foremost, prepare yourself for a culture shock. Many seasoned travelers arrive and find it is unlike any other country they have previously visited.
Les personnes qui voyagent pour la première fois en Égypte sont souvent perdus lorsqu’il s’agit de choisit un restaurant. Il est préférable de rechercher une chaîne d'hôtel ou un restaurant de renommé (demandez si c’est possible). Ainsi vous pouvez être assuré d’avoir une nourriture bonne et propre Le prix en vaudra la peine. Ne buvez jamais l'eau du robinet ! Lavez-vous les mains et prenez une douche avec, mais n'en buvez pas.
On the Egyptian Language- Learn the basic words: La? (no) and shukran (thank you). You will be needing them.
On Transportation ? Taxis are a problem as they do not have a counter and pricing can be very tricky. Best is to use Uber or Careem or else have your hotel get you a cab and negotiate the price before you go on your ride.
En général, ayez toujours une bouteille d'eau lors de vos déplacements afin que vous puissiez supporter la chaleur.
Gardez toujours de la monnaie locale avec vous car cela vous facilitera la vie, surtout lorsque vous payez des courses, des taxis, les frais d’entrée des sites touristiques, des musées et des souvenirs. Vous pouvez utiliser vos cartes de crédit dans les grands magasins, restaurants et hôtels.
On Tips – If you feel generous enough to tip one child, then expect to be followed by a hoard of others expecting to be tipped as well. Make sure you have a lot of small bills for such ventures as tipping is sort of expected and even the smallest bill (one pound) will be welcomed.
On Photography ? Taking photos inside many temples is restricted, so please follow the advice of your guide and the keeper of the sites. In some places, please be aware that the government will charge you for taking photographs. Due to new policies put in place by the Ministry of Tourism, cameras are not permitted at all in the Valley of the Kings. Please exercise caution and respect when taking photographs of anything other than tourist sites. It is forbidden to take photographs of the police, anything of a military nature or indeed bridges, airports and public works. Respect should be given to Egyptian women, use discretion. Always ask permission before taking photos of people and expect to be asked for a tip in return.
On Clothing – Upon visiting mosques, please dress conservatively, i.e. half/long sleeved shirt and no shorts. In public areas, this would also be our advice. However, in some touristic areas such as the seaside, it perfectly fine to wear shorts and sleeveless shirts. Please remember to remove your footwear upon stepping into a mosque.
On Health – Bring a supply of your medication if you take any on a regular basis as well as a copy of your prescription. However, please be assured that your hotel or our staff will find you a specialized doctor should the need arise.
Egypt?s national airline is Egypt Air. Most major international airlines fly to Cairo.

Lady Egypt Tours
When I was looking to travel to Egypt for the first time, I knew not where to ask about a tour operator so I resorted to the internet. I usually travel indepently and have done so to Morocco, Israel, the West Bank and Jordan in the area but I was unfamiliar with Egypt. Anyway, Lady Egypt caught my eye because of their consistently excellent reviews and I must now add mine to the list..
Arrival was quick and smooth, with the company’s representative, Islam, holding a sign with our clearly printed names greeting us right at the entrance to the terminal before whisking us to a quick check-in for a good night’s rest. Our guides, Mohamed El-Zawahry in Cairo and Ahmed Aboudi in Upper Egypt, were knowledgable Egyptologists with a wonderful sense of humor. No request was too difficult for Lady Egypt to accommodate. When we wanted to add El Alamein to our itinerary the day after we arrived, it was organized spur of the moment and without a hitch. A decision to remain at the Mena House hotel instead of switching to another one for our last few days in Cairo was arranged without penalty despite its abruptness. The itinerary was modified as we went along to make adjustments for traffic and other conditions such as the weather. The 12 days could not have gone more smoothly (Islam discreetly kept daily tab of how we were doing from the home office). The amount of knowledge shared by our guides was so informative that I swear by the time I boarded the plane for home I could among many things trace the many traditions that we have adopted today to their origins in ancient Egypt and that I must have at least a working knowledge of hieroglyphics!
Oh and by the way, when Islam heard that while on the Nile cruise we had shown an interest in the Egyptian dessert Om Ali, he presented us each on our return with a tray from Twinky Patisserie in Giza, who after having tried it in different places I have concluded to make the best in town!
Lady Egypt it is?without reservations!
The PERFECT Way to Experience Egypt!
My husband and I spent 11 days and 10 nights touring the wonderful cities and sights of Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, and Hurghada for our honeymoon.
From start to finish, our experience with Lady Egypt was seamless. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and make our trip enjoyable. Our tour leader, Khalifa, and each of our tour guides (Mohammed, Mahmoud, and Shareef) were all exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, and warm. At the end of each tour, we felt as if they were our good friends! I also want to acknowledge Nahla in the Sales Department for crafting the perfect itinerary for us and assisting us through each step of the booking process.
Visiting Egypt was a lifelong dream of ours, and we are so thrilled to be able to now say that we’ve checked it off our bucket list! Some of the highlights of the trip included watching the sunrise from a hot air balloon ride over Luxor, snorkeling in the Red Sea, and stunning views of temples, tombs, and pyramids.
I truly can’t say enough good things about Lady Egypt Tours. We loved every minute of our time here and cannot wait to return to this beautiful country again one day! Thank you SO MUCH for making our honeymoon an incredible and memorable one. ??
For the 2nd year Lady Egypt Tours makes our vacation unforgettable. The representative that I was working with was beyond patient when I requested information on 10+ different hotels and asked 101 questions. She arranged all transportation needed before I even asked. We had a tour guide with us each time we moved from one place to the other. They literally did everything while had us seated with a cold refreshing drink in our hands. When I had an annoying situation at one of the hotel I called my representative and she took care of it. Even the tour guide who picked us up from Hurghada Airport was very helpful. Talked to us about all the important highlights on the way to the hotel and was always there whenever we needed anything. Lady Egypt Tours made everything as easy as a click of a button.
Thank you Lady Egypt and Thank you to each and everyone who took the extra step to make this UNFORGETTABLE.
Treated like Royalty with Lady Egypt Tours
Review of: 8-Night Cairo, Aswan and Luxor Explorer Tour from Cairo
From the planning with Nahla, to when we were handed our boarding passes when we left Cairo to head home, we were treated as If we were the only customer they had. It is difficult to pick out just one guide or representative that we dealt with, because they all had the same attitude, make this trip unforgettable for these people. From their extensive knowledge of their guides, to their extensive network of people on the ground, and their unfailing coordination in all aspects of this trip, it was second to none. We felt completely safe and comfortable at all times and would definitely recommend Lady Egypt for any once, or twice, in a lifetime experience . The Egyptian weather was pleasant, low 80’s in April, and the Egyptian people were very pleasant.
Don’t let being nervous prevent you from experiencing the Land of The Pharaohs, It is awesome!
