Week in Egypt with buddies
I met a couple friends in Cairo and hooked up with NileCruiseHolidays. They met each of us separately at the airport and ushered us to the front of the beleaguered confused travelers to an air conditioned vehicle with cold water. They must have thought I was King Tut himself. Osama, our main guide, was a fountain of knowledge about current life and antiquities. Besides his love for his country he was tuned into what we were feeling so that he could keep us comfortable. If you can possibly request him, you are likely to have an unforgettable trip. I asked them to make changes at the last minute which they figured out without hesitation.
Egypt and Dubai – Combining Ancient and Modern History
High quality Egypt and Dubai Tours are amazing, regardless of whether you are traveling alone, or whether you are traveling with family or a group of friends.

If contrast is what you are looking for, then Egypt and Dubai tours will never disappoint.
Enjoy professionally guided tours to several of the top Cairo tourist attracts, then board a flight to Aswan or Luxor to embark on a beautifully appointed 5-Star Nile cruise ship, and visit the best ancient monuments of the Nile River Valley before heading to Dubai for an experience like no other. From the ancient tombs and temples of Egypt, to the glistening skyscrapers and opulent shopping malls of Dubai, our Egypt and Dubai tours are perfect in every way.
How Do Our Egypt and Dubai Tours Work?
Once you have found an Egypt and Dubai tour package that suits your exact needs, all you need to do is contact us and then we can start making the necessary arrangements. If you want any changes made or any amendments made, you only need to tell us, and one of our expert travel specialists will work with you to ensure that you enjoy the perfect tour itinerary. Generally speaking, our Egypt and Dubai tours begin in Cairo, the capital of Egypt.
When you land at Cairo International Airport, one of our tour representatives will be standing by to meet you, and as soon as you pass through immigration, they will welcome you and assist you, and then escort you out of the airport to where one of our drivers will be waiting for you in a clean and modern air-conditioned vehicle. You will then be driven to the 4-Star or 5-Star hotel where you will be staying for the duration of your time in Cairo.
During your stay in Cairo, you will be taken to see a number of top Cairo tourist attractions, including places like the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum, and the Khan El Khalili Bazaar. When your time in Cairo comes to an end, you will then be taken to the airport and you will board a short flight to Luxor or Aswan for your 5-Star Nile cruise embarkation. At NileCruiseHolidays.com, we only book our clients on to the very best cruise ships operating on the Nile River. These are much the same as what you would expect if you were to stay in any good hotel.
For many people who have booked Egypt and Dubai tours, the Nile cruise has been a highlight of their trip. During your time on the cruise ship, you can expect to see all the very best Aswan tourist attractions; the best Luxor tourist attractions, as well as some other amazing tourist attractions in between. By the time you finally disembark from your incredible Nile River cruise, you can be sure that you will have seen some of the very best attractions which Egypt has to offer.
Following your cruise, you will then fly back to Cairo where you will typically have one more night for relaxing and for doing as you wish. After all, we want our Egypt and Dubai tours to be just as relaxing as they are exciting. The following morning you will then be picked up from your hotel, and you will be driven to Cairo International Airport where you will board your flight to Dubai. When your plane lands in Dubai, another one of our tour representatives will be standing by to meet you and to escort you to the hotel where you’ll be staying while you are in Dubai.
Once again, you will be taken to see some of the very best Dubai tourist attractions while you are in this glittering city of opulence, and you will immediately notice the staggering contrast between Egypt and Dubai. It is this contrast that actually makes Egypt and Dubai tours so uniquely special.
Visit and Explore the Best Attractions in Egypt
When you book one of our Egypt and Dubai tours, you can book with complete confidence knowing that we will be making 100% sure that you get to see many of Egypt’s most prized ancient attraction, and even some not so ancient ones. All the tours you will enjoy in Cairo are private guided tours. That’s right; you will have your very own Egyptologist tour guide and one of ours drivers with you to ensure that your tours are both memorable and comfortable.
Unless you request customized tours, one of the first places that you will be seeing during our Egypt and Dubai tours is the Giza necropolis located on the outskirts of Cairo. This is of course where you will see the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. You will also most likely visit the Saqqara necropolis which is best known for the Djoser pyramid which is believed to be the first or second pyramid ever built. You can also expect to visit the imposing Cairo Citadel where you will have a chance to look around inside the magnificent Muhammad Ali Alabaster mosque. Female travelers are requested to cover their hair when entering the mosque and non-Muslims visitors are not allowed inside the mosque during prayer times.
Our Egypt and Dubai tours also include visiting the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This fantastic museum is home to the world’s largest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts. At any one time, there are more than 100,000 artifacts on display within the museum. Of particular interest to most tourists, is the museum’s Treasures Room which hosts a permanent exhibit of the artifacts and treasures that were recovered from the tomb of King Tutankhamun when it was discovered and excavated in the early 20th century in Valley of the Kings at Luxor.
There is also a Mummies Room at the museum where you can see real mummies in special environmentally controlled displays. However, in order to see the mummies you will need to purchase a separate ticket at the museum. We don’t include this in the price of our tours simply because many tourists do not want to see the mummies, so we leave this decision up to our clients.
One other incredible place that you will be visiting when you book Egypt and Dubai tours through us is the frenetic Khan el-Khalili Bazaar which has been open since around 1389. The Khan el-Khalili Bazaar is believed to be the biggest open air bazaar in the entire Middle East. To this day; this is where the Egyptians of Cairo go to for their daily supplies. Even if you don’t want to do any shopping at the bazaar, it’s still a good place to visit; a place to stroll around or find a little cafe where you can sit and enjoy some snacks and refreshments.
The next tourist attractions you will be visiting are those which you will be taken to see during the course of your Nile River cruise. In Aswan, you will be taken to see places such as the Aswan High Dam; the Unfinished Obelisk, and the Ancient Temple of Philae. This remarkable temple once stood on lower ground and had to be moved in its entirety to higher ground in order to save it from the flooding of Lake Nasser.
Once your cruise ship departs from Aswan, it will make two stops before it reaches Luxor. It will stop at Edfu where you’ll be able to visit Edfu Temple, the best-preserved ancient temple ever discovered. Its high level of preservation is due to the fact that that after it was abandoned by the Romans, it was slowly but surely reclaimed by the desert and remained buried beneath the sand for more than 2000 years. Your five star Nile river cruise ship will also dock at Kom Ombo where you will be taken to see beautiful Kom Ombo Temple. What makes the temple so unique is the fact that it was built and dedicated to two different gods. Because of this, it takes the form of two identical halves, with one half belonging to one god, and the other half belonging to the other God. One half was dedicated to Sobek the crocodile god, while the other half was dedicated to Horus the Falcon-headed God.
In Luxor you will be taken to see some of the greatest ancient attractions in Egypt. These include Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple complex located on the East Bank, and then on the West Bank you will be taken to see places such as the mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the Colossi of Memnon, and Valley of the Kings. While the Karnak Temple complex is the second most visited ancient site in Egypt after the pyramids at Giza, for many people, Valley of the Kings, which you will also be visiting, is one of the highlights of their Nile River cruise.
A total of 63 ancient rock-cut tombs have been discovered at this site, including the tomb of Pharaoh Ramses and the tomb of King Tutankhamun which was surprisingly discovered still sealed and intact. Most of the artifacts that were recovered in his tomb are currently on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, although the Mummy of King Tutankhamun he’s kept in a special display within his tomb in the Valley of the Kings. It is however worth noting that a special ticket needs to be purchased if you wish to enter the tomb of King Tutankhamun, and this ticket is not included in the price of our Egypt and Dubai tours.
Those who wish to enter the tomb are required to buy a ticket in person at the site on the day of their visit. Unfortunately because only a limited number of tickets are sold each day, there are usually very long queues, so if you want to visit the inside of the tomb you really need to get to the site before it even opens in the morning. If you really have to see the inside of King Tutankhamen’s tomb, then please make this known to us before you book any Egypt and Dubai tours so that we can do the necessary customization to allow for such a visit.
With your Egypt sightseeing now over, it will be time for you to fly to Dubai where more incredible sightseeing awaits you.
