This private luxury tour combines the highlights of Dubai and Egypt, including fascinating cultural touring, luxury accommodations, and expert private guides.

In Egypt, Artisans of Leisure travelers are escorted by their own private Egyptologist guide (including on Nile cruises) and have their own private drivers in each location. We use suites on all Nile cruises.

Experience the best of Dubai during flexible, personalized city touring. Learn about Dubai’s culture and history while exploring Old Dubai. See the traditional buildings of the Bastakiya Quarter, ride an abra (water taxi) across Dubai Creek, and browse the spice and gold souks. Travelers interested in architecture will enjoy visiting tile-covered mosques and seeing ultra-modern skyscrapers, including Burj Khalifa, the tallest in the world. The Burj’s 124th-floor observation deck offers panoramic views of the city below. If desired, experience Dubai’s burgeoning art and design scene during visits to interesting shops and galleries housed in converted traditional and industrial buildings. Dubai is also a renowned shopping destination, with atmospheric souks and legendary luxury malls filled with exclusive fashion and accessories boutiques. Other options, depending on your interests, include visiting Ski Dubai, the Dubai Aquarium or one of Dubai’s water parks. Or perhaps just relax on the beach or by the pool. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange additional special interest activities such as a private falconry lesson or tea ceremony, a meal at the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel, touring with an art expert, or a scenic seaplane flight over the city’s renowned skyscrapers and man-made islands. Artisans of Leisure can also make dining reservations at the city’s many excellent restaurants.

Next, journey into the Arabian Desert for two nights in your own private tented bungalow at a luxury resort surrounded by sand dunes and palm trees. Relax in your private pool, and enjoy activities according to your interests, such as camel and horseback riding, nature walks, traditional sports such as falconry and archery, thrilling four-wheel drive (4x4) tours through the sand dunes, and spa treatments.

Continue to Egypt and experience the country’s cultural and archaeological wonders. With your own private guide and driver, explore Cairo as an insider. Our Egypt specialists have left no stone unturned in their quest to uncover the city’s most interesting cultural attractions, neighborhoods and markets—our tours offer the most in-depth, sophisticated Cairo touring available. In addition to visiting well-known attractions such as the Citadel, Egyptian Museum, Hanging Church and Khan al-Khalili bazaar, also tour our favorite neighborhoods filled with beautiful Fatimid, Islamic, Mameluke, Ottoman, Coptic and Art Deco architecture; well-preserved medieval residences formerly occupied by wealthy merchants; fascinating markets and shopping streets; and smaller, lesser-known museums dedicated to Islamic art, applied arts, Egyptian culture, Impressionist paintings and more.

One day, take a private excursion to the impressive Pyramids of Giza. If desired, attend the impressive Sound & Light Show there one evening. Then fly to Abu Simbel and explore some of the most beautiful Pharaonic temples in existence at the first light of day—the most beautiful time to visit.

Cruise the Nile River aboard a luxury boat. Our travelers stay in a suite and have their own private Egyptologist to accompany them on private tours of the extraordinary archaeological sites such as the Temple of Philae in Aswan, Temple of Horus in Edfu and Valleys of the Kings and Queens in Luxor. Upon request, arrangements can be made to tour monuments usually closed to the public or museums outside of opening hours.

The tour concludes with one night in Cairo.
