This private tour of Egypt is perfect for anyone who wants to see the country’s most important cultural attractions and have the most luxurious accommodation available each day.

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

Begin in Cairo and experience the city 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, 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.

Board a luxury Nile River cruise, where accommodation is in a top suite. Each day during the cruise, you will have your own private Egyptologist to take you 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.

Continue to the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, founded by Alexander the Great and today Egypt’s second-largest city. Explore the hidden charms of this fascinating city during touring with your private guide and driver. Visit the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina—a striking, state-of-the-art library and museum of antiquities—as well as various ancient monuments, catacombs and the site of the Pharos Lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Perhaps also browse the antiques district, see beautiful mosques, and relax at waterfront cafés. Accommodation is at the new Four Seasons Alexandria at San Stefano.

Return to Cairo for one night with touring en route of the Wadi Natrun monasteries, built by early Christians escaping Roman persecution.
