Sidewalk meets the sand in Egypt. Vibrant, energetic Cairo contrasts starkly with the timelessness of pyramids and the silence of the desert. Marvel at the Pharaoh's treasures, then haggle for your own at a rowdy open air bazaar. Sail the Nile by luxury cruise ship or felucca, a small Egyptian sailboat.

Great trip. Loved every minute of it (even the early mornings). We had a very knowledgeable guide, great hotels, great ship and great people. Great value for the money. I will travel again with Friendly Planet. I never thought I would see the Pyramids and sail up the Nile, but thanks to your company I did.

Great trip. Historically fascinating, visually stunning. Cairo is a beautiful city, fun to explore. Most of all, so glad our guide arranged for a Hot Air Balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings. Not at all expensive and absolutely wonderful. Hope you have as much fun as we did.
