Guided trip
Hey, guys 😊! This time around we are going to explore ancient Egypt! During this 5 days together, we will embark on a journey into the past through unique sights and monuments! But first… it’s-a about me, Giulia! I'm the typical Italian girl, raised on Margherita Pizza 🍕 and weird hand gestures! I love meeting new people and getting to know new cultures. Whether you are looking for a new friend, a new mum, or a new mascotte, I can be the one for you 😬! Once we land in Luxor (Luxor International Airport), we will get in contact with the shuttle that will take us directly to our Cruise. During these four days, we will travel along the longest river in the world from Luxor to Aswan, while visiting the most important temples in the country. After a first night on board in the harbor, we'll set sail on the second day (after, however, having first explored Luxor). In the three days that will follow, we are going to visit places like the Valley of the Kings, Kom Ombo, Colossi of Memnon, and Abu Simbel! During our last night on the cruise, we'll also ride a traditional Felucca boat down the Nile. Our 4-night cruise will include an English-speaking guide for all the tours! On the last day of the cruise, we will enjoy the boat's facilities (including the swimming pool) until lunch and then transfer to the airport! Where are we staying? 🏡 ✅ 1°-4° NIGHTS: Double cabin on a premium boat - double bed (for those who are not really willing to share a bed, which is understandable, the cruise also offers single cabins, but with an additional charge of around 150 euros). What about transportation? 🚕 All travel between the various locations (excluding those that can be done on foot) will be transferred 🚐 operated by a shuttle. The trip costs include 💰 - Luxury Cruise Accommodation - Transfer from Luxor airport on the first day - Transfer from the Cruise to the airport on the last day - Tickets to all Monuments during the 4 days Cruise (but Tutankhamun's tomb) - English-speaking guide for all the tours - ALL Breakfasts - Lunches and Dinners during the cruise (full pension) - Travel Insurance (unluckily, for now, provided only for travelers from Germany and Austria) What is not included 💸: - Flights - Entry to Tutankhamun's tomb (€ 12) - Other activities not mentioned in “The trip costs include” - Drinks (water included) - Travel Insurance (except travelers from Germany and Austria) IMPORTANT GUIDELINES: —> Always bring with you some cash 💶, you never know! —> Wardrobe 🧥: you’ll need light clothes to help you withstand the temperatures, which are often very high, preferring cotton clothing and sturdy shoes. Don’t forget a good hat, a light scarf against the wind and sand, and a pair of sunglasses! But also a sweatshirt for the night, comfortable sandals and a swimming costume! For women, bring at least a couple of changes with trousers/dresses that are not too short for the less touristy and rural areas (By the way, I’ll send you a list with all you need to bring one month before the departure!). —> I know it can sound obvious, but you better bring TONS of sun cream! —> TOURIST VISA REQUESTED 🛂 Currently, all those living in the European Union, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom can easily apply for their visa to Egypt online (The cost is more or less 49 €)! As for all the other Countries, be sure to check online the requirements for yours! For detailed trip stops, take a look at the bottom of the page in the Trip Itinerary section!

Giulia is an absolutely incredible trip leader who made our journey an unforgettable experience filled with warmth, laughter, and moments to remember. Her enthusiasm, extensive knowledge, and exceptional organisational skills made every day an adventure to remember. Giulia's friendly and approachable nature created a close-knit group dynamic where everyone felt valued and included. This was my first experience with JMT and I couldn't have asked for a better one! Our group was amazing! Thank you, Giulia!

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-2
Our first stop! Once at the airport, the shuttle will pick us up and take us directly to the boat. I will probably arrive on the evening of the 10th (the boat will not set sail until the next morning), so you can decide whether to wait at the airport and then go to the pier together or to start your exploration of the city alone. The shuttle will be included for each of us, so you can also decide to transfer to the boat on your own (but in this case you will have to inform me of your flight time as soon as possible, otherwise I will not be able to book your place on the cruise). We’ll explore the city with our guide on the morning of the second day, where we'll visit two of the most spectacular temples in Egypt, the Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple. 
After lunch we’ll visit the Valley of the Kings, the Temple of Hatsepsut and the Colossi of Memnon! In the late afternoon we’ll finally sail in the direction of Edfu!


Day 2-3
On the morning of the third day, right after breakfast we'll visit the Edfu temple. The cruise will then continues towards Kom Ombo, which means “The Hill Of Gold”. The temple is unique for its dedication to two different deities: the local crocodile-headed god Sobek, and the first "god of the Kingdom", the falcon-headed god Horus the Elder. 

Abu Simbel

Day 3
During the 4th day we’ll also visit Abu Simbel (already included in the quota), considered the grandest and most beautiful of the temples commissioned during the reign of Ramses II, and one of the most beautiful in Egypt. Then, in the evening, aboard a traditional felucca 🚣🏾‍♀️, we will travel along the Nile, admiring its flora and fauna, its volcanic islands and its natural beauty. Then we will spend the night again in Aswan (after having explored it).


Day 3-5
On the last morning on the boat, we will rest a little and enjoy the last few hours by the pool! After lunch (the last meal offered by the full board on the cruise),we can take the shuttle back to Aswan Airport!
