What To Expect
MT Sobek: Egypt Pyramids, Temples & Nile Multi-Adventure

Reason #01

This MT Sobek journey skillfully covers Egypt's key sites, iconic pyramids, archaeological ruins, and tombs in 12 days.

Reason #02

This thrilling trip features tours guided by knowledgeable Egyptologists, for deep insights into the ancient culture.

Reason #03

The itinerary includes three days of scenic sailing on the Nile on a private dahabiya, a traditional sailing boat.

Activities

Tours of ancient archaeological sites and museums, a sailing trip on the Nile, a camel ride, and visits to traditional villages.

Lodging

A boutique palace hotel in Luxor, a private sailing boat on the Nile, and luxury city hotels in Cairo to bookend the trip in style.

Climate

Egypt's weather is moderate throughout the year with the heat peaking during the summer months only (June-August). Winters in Egypt are generally very mild with little rainfall. However, desert winters can be much colder than the rest of the country.

Do I need any vaccinations to visit Egypt?

You do not need to take any vaccinations to visit Egypt.

Do I need to follow a special dress code for Egypt?

Around town, at historic sites, and on the cruise you can dress as you do on a normal hot summer's day back home. When entering mosques keep legs covered with long trousers or long skirts, and women should also cover as much bare skin as much as possible, especially shoulders, and wear a scarf over the head.

Do I need a visa to enter Egypt?

Yes, tourist visas are available on arrival for US Citizens.

What type of vehicles does this trip use to get around?

We use a wide range of vehicles including jeeps, buses, and luxury coaches. They are all operated by experienced, multi lingual, qualified drivers to ensure that your trips are comfortable and safe.

What’s the food like in Egypt?

Egyptian food is generally similar to many other Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, including stuffed vine leaves, grilled meats, and numerous "dips" traditionally eaten with pitta-style bread. Rice with vegetables in tomato sauce, and pasta dishes baked in a similar way to lasagna, are both common. Specialties include stuffed or spit broiled pigeons, shish kebabs made of marinated chunks of lamb and spices, then grilled over hot charcoal and small ground lamb kebabs called kofta. Seafood is a good choice with prawns from the Red Sea, sea bass from the Mediterranean and a wonderful fish dish, tilapia, from the Nile. We've ensured you'll dine on some of Egypt's best food during your adventure!
