Discover the treasures of the Pharaohs with your children

This tour is designed for families with children. The main historical sights will be visited at a pace that is adapted to the children. In an entertaining way the children will experience what life was like in ancient Egypt. On top of that you can all ride a camel in the desert, sail in a Felucca on the Nile, enter a pyramid and if you wish to do so, even ride a hot air balloon and see the temples from a birds-eye point-of--view. Your children will have many opportunities to meet with the children of Egypt.

At the selected family oriented first class hotels, your children can enjoy swimming pools, playgrounds and sports acitivities.

The journey through ancient Egypt starts in Cairo where you visit the following highlights:

  • The last surviving of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: The three great pyramids. Your guide can arrange for you to enter a pyramid and see the excavated sun boat of the pharaoh. After you have met with the amazing Sphinx, you can ride in the desert on a camel's back.
  • In the Egyptian Museum, you walk between giant statues of gods and pharaohs and come face to face with the golden mask of Tutanchamon.

A domestic flight takes you to the south of Egypt where you stay a few days in the beautiful village Aswan. The program includes:

  • Sailing in a felucca (ancient Egyptian sailing boat) and visit a Nubian village on an island in the Nile.
  • By motorboat you reach the island with the temple of the goddess Isis.
  • You see a large obelisk in the stone quarries.

From Aswan you drive along the Nile to Luxor. On the way you visit the double Temple of Kom Ombo, where crocodiles were worshiped and the great temple of the falcon god Horus.

In Luxor you stay at Maritim Jolie Ville resort nestled amidst spacious landscaped gardens on a privately owned island in the Nile.There is a large infinity pool with water entertainment. A variety of fun and educational programs for children is organized by the resort.

The excursions in Luxor include:

  • The great temples of the gods on the eastern bank of the Nile. The Karnak temple complex is overwhelming, with huge columns, a giant scarab, a sacred lake and two obelisks. The Karnak was connected with the Temple of Luxor by an avenue of Sphinxes. Walking between the sphinxes, it's easy to experience the glory of the pharaohs.
  • Till this day, the Temple of Luxor is a place of worship. This temple was dedicated to the creator god Amun-Min, his wife Mut and their child the moon god Khonsu.
  • The west bank of the Nile, where the sun sets, was the realm of the afterlife. Hidden between the desert mountains, you find the Valley of the Kings.
  • The female pharaoh Hatshepsut stands as the god Osiris in front of her temple, waiting for the sun god Ra to appear above the horizon. The modern-looking design of the temple creates a dramatic contrast with the desert mountains.

In Luxor you have ample free time to visit the attractive colorful market, make a ride in a horse drawn carriage, visit the charming Luxor Museum or make an early morning hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings.

The tour can be extended with one week beach holiday at the Red Sea.
