Day 1 : Cairo, Egypt

Slip into the rhythm of 6.76 million bodies, join in a game of backgammon and find out why the Egyptians call this place Umm al-Dunya or 'the mother of the world'. Just make sure to rock up in time for tonight's welcome meeting.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> <br /> - Airport transfers

Day 2 : Cairo to Aswan via Overnight Coach

There's old, and then there's the necropolis of Saqqara. Soak up some ancient history, meander Coptic Cairo and get your haggle on in Khan el-Khalili market. Refuel with a mint tea or keep exploring.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> <br /> - Saqqara pyramid<br /> - Coptic Cairo<br /> - Khan el-Khalili market<br /> <br /> Meals:<br /> <br /> - Breakfast

Day 3 : Aswan

Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Lord Byron... They&rsquo;ve all done it. Go low tech with a ride on a traditional felucca sailboat down the Nile. Switch to a motor boat to take in views of the Mausoleum of Aga Khan and Tombs of the Nobles before we jump ship at a Nubian village.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> <br /> - Short felucca ride<br /> - Nubian village visit<br /> <br /> Meals:<br /> <br /> - Breakfast<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> <br /> - Camel ride<br /> - Nubian dinner

Day 4 : Aswan

Kanye may lyricise that he is a god, but the great Pharaoh Ramesses II apparently bedded 1000 woman and fathered 90 children in his time. His four colossal statues at Abu Simbel are probably what Kanye has in mind when he looks in the mirror each morning. Yeezus! Visit the Temple of Hathor - built in<br /> honour of his wife, Queen Nefertari - then drink in the magic of the Nile at sunset.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> <br /> - Abu Simbel<br /> <br /> Meals:<br /> <br /> - Breakfast<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> <br /> - Philae Temple

Day 5 : Aswan to Luxor

G.L.A.M.O.R.O.U.S. Today we&rsquo;re travelling first class (in an air-conditioned mini bus) to Karnak for a touch of Luxor. Once the capital of ancient Egypt, it&rsquo;s now a history-strewn landscape of souks and temples.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> <br /> - Karnak &amp; Luxor temples<br /> <br /> Meals:<br /> <br /> - Breakfast

Day 6 : Luxor to Cairo via Overnight Coach

Walk into the Valley of the Kings &ndash; aka the place everyone in ancient Egypt was dying to get into, then fly the flag for girl power at the temple of Queen Hatshepsut before gawking at the Colossi of Memnon.<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> <br /> - Valley of the Kings<br /> - Temple of Hatshepsut<br /> - Colossi of Memnon<br /> <br /> Meals:<br /> <br /> - Breakfast

Day 7 : Cairo

Walk like an Egyptian into King Tutankhamun&rsquo;s treasure chest at the Egyptian Museum &ndash; home to over 160,00 relics &ndash; then gain some perspective at the base of the 138-metre Great Pyramid of Giza. This hunk of ancient architecture could be remodelled into 30 Empire State Buildings. The Sphinx is its big-ass guard dog (or should that be lionman?).<br /> <br /> Included today:<br /> <br /> - Egyptian Museum<br /> - Giza pyramids &amp; Sphinx<br /> <br /> Meals:<br /> <br /> - Breakfast<br /> <br /> Optional activities:<br /> <br /> - Nile dinner cruise

Day 8 : Cairo

The trip ends here (well, breakfast first), but pop on that fedora and keep on exploring, Indy. New York may tout itself as the city that never sleeps but it&rsquo;s got nothin&rsquo; on the Big Mango.<br /> <br /> Meals:<br /> <br /> - Breakfast
