Why we love it

“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.”

Luxor

An extraordinary place, Luxor has often been described as the world's greatest open-air museum, and it does not disappoint. Perched on the banks of the Nile, there are endless monuments and incredible temples to explore. We recommend at least 3 nights to explore both the East and West banks and to take your time soaking up the atmosphere of this beautiful, historic area.
