Footsteps of the Pharaohs

On this history-filled trip, you'll wind down the Nile to start in the land of the Pharaohs, Luxor, before travelling to Aswan and finishing with the pièce de résistance, Cairo. We recommend doing it this way so that when you arrive in the capital, our expert Egyptologists have filled in the gaps in your knowledge and enriched your trip with fascinating context. You’ll also discover modern Cairo with a local guide, uncovering its new creative culinary experiences, up-and-coming music and nightlife scene alongside some epic modern history. With nemo, you’re not just another tourist.
