Classic Egypt Solo Holiday

Inspirational solo holiday to Egypt

Handcrafted for solo travellers, see Egypt’s most iconic sites from Cairo’s famous Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx to the awe-inspiring temples, tombs, and monuments of the Nile Valley. Cruise Egypt’s river Nile on a luxury cruise ship hopping on and off with an expert Egyptologist to learn more about these incredible ancient treasures.

First up, explore Cairo at your own pace. Conveniently located, the Four Seasons Cairo at Nile Plaza is only a short drive from the city’s famous pyramids, its 1000-year-old market, the 12th-century citadel, and the Egyptian museum. When you have taken your fill of photos and stocked up on your souvenirs, you will fly to Luxor in the Nile Valley region. From here you will spend 4 nights cruising to Aswan on Sanctuary Sun Boat IV, a luxurious floating haven. Expert guides will take you in small groups as you stop off at awe-inspiring sites such as the Valley of the Kings, Karnak Temple, and the Temple of Khnum. After a day of sightseeing, lounge on the pool deck and gaze out as the ship passes both modern and ancient Egypt. End this bucket list adventure at Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan. This famous hotel stands in the Nubian Desert, on the banks of the Nile and is close to the rock Tombs of Amarna, the Aswan Museum and Elephantine Island.
