Welcome to the land of the pharaohs! Arrive at Cairo airport to begin your Egyptian archaeology tour and meet your transfer and journey to our boutique hotel in the heard of Islamic Cairo.

Meet your Egyptologist trip leader and travel companions for a welcome meeting and introduction to your archaeology trip through ancient Egypt at 17.00. After the meeting, head out into cosmopolitan Cairo to a local restaurant for a special dinner.

We begin our Egyptian archaeology tour with a visit to the site of Meidum. At this site a virtually unknown pyramid sits alone in the desert, rising up out of the sand like a dark tower. This is the so-called Meidum pyramid. Older than the pyramids of Giza it is thought to have been Egypt’s first attempt at building a true pyramid. Originally attributed to pharaoh Sneferu – father of Khufu builder of the great pyramid, it is now thought to have been built even earlier by pharaoh Huni, Khufu’s grandfather.

After Meidum, we will move onto Saqqara the necropolis of Egypt’s old kingdom and home to Egypt’s very first pyramid, the Step Pyramid of pharaoh Djoser. Not only will we be exploring the pyramid complex today, but as part of the unparalleled experiences offered on this Egyptian archaeology tour we will explore the underground chambers of the pyramid. This pyramid has been the subject of extensive restoration and these chambers have been closed for years. They are now open to a very limited number of visitors.

We will also visit the mastaba tomb Mereruka, the vizir of King Teti, as well as the tombs of the nobles Mhu and Maya and the so-called ‘tomb of the two brothers’ which is one of the largest non-royal tombs at Saqqara. We will step inside the pyramid of King Unas, which was the first pyramid to contain hieroglyphic inscriptions called the ‘pyramid texts.’ These texts became the ‘Coffin Texts’ in the middle kingdom and then finally the ‘Book of the Dead’ in the new kingdom when they were transcribed onto the walls of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings.

While at Saqqara we will also visit the enigmatic tomb of the Apis Bull or Serapeum. The Apis Bull was worshipped as the incarnation of Ra on Earth and was treated as a god. The bulls were selected based on markings and when the old bull died, he was buried in this tomb. The tomb is a veritable labyrinth of chambers containing the immense sarcophagi in which the mummified bulls were placed upon their death.

On our way back to Cairo we will stop at the site of Dahshour home to the Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid, both built by King Snefru, father of Khufu builder of the Great Pyramid.

After breakfast this morning we will head over to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation. The artefacts you will see today will be from ancient Egyptian life including agriculture, writing, fashion and make up. In addition, the Egyptian royal mummies are now located in this museum having been moved from the Cairo Museum in the Golden Parade of 2021.

After the museum we will head to Giza for a special lunch at one of Egypt’s premiere restaurants – 9 Pyramids Lounge. We don’t think you could get a better view at a restaurant anywhere else in the world as this new restaurant overlooks the pyramids and the Giza plateau.

After lunch visit the pyramid site with the combined knowledge of your Egyptologist trip leader and local guide. We will enter the great pyramid and admire the spectacular grand gallery and also enter the mastaba tomb of Queen Khentkawes.

We will finish our Giza experience with a visit to the enigmatic Sphinx, however we won’t be regular visitors. We have arranged for special VIP access to the Sphinx monument for our Egyptian archaeology tour. Take the opportunity to stand between the paws of the great lion and look into the face that has borne witness to the eons of time since its construction.

Today, on our Egyptian archaeology tour, we leave Cairo behind as we venture into the Nile Delta in the north to discover the more obscure archaeological site of Tanis. Tanis became the capital of Egypt in the third intermediate period after the capital established by Ramses II (the Great), Pi-Ramesses was abandoned when its harbour silted up. The site was established in the 19th Dynasty and grew to prominence in the 21st and 22nd Dynasties, it was also popular in Greaco-Roman times, a fact that somewhat confused its discoverers as the site originally had architecture and artefacts from different periods of history littered throughout the site.

The necropolis of Tanis contained the only undisturbed royal burials of Egyptian pharaohs, (the Tomb of Tutankhamen was in fact entered in antiquity) these are the burials of third intermediate pharaohs Psusennes I, Amenemope and Shoshenq II. Often forgotten about by historians and passed over by travellers because of its hard-to-reach location in the Nile Delta, we are sure to have the site of Tanis to ourselves and to do some exploring at our leisure. Visiting the deserted and forgotten site of Tanis is sure to be a highlight of your archaeology trip to Egypt.

After we have explored the forgotten city of Tanis we will transfer back to Cairo.

Today we will visit the newly opened and highly anticipated Grand Egyptian Museum.

The largest museum in the world dedicated to a single civilisation, the GEM houses now houses the Tutankhamen collection and many artefacts that are on display for the first time.

We will spend half a day exploring the museum with our guide including the Grand stair and the new interactive Tutankhamen exhibition.

The remainder of the day is yours to explore Cairo on your own.

We check out of our Cairo hotel this morning and head north-west to the coastal city of Alexandria. Legendarily established by Alexander the Great, Alexandria was a major centre of knowledge in the ancient world.

On arrival in Alexandria, we will visit the Roman catacombs, which were constructed in the 2nd century and reportedly contain the tombs of over three hundred individuals. We will also visit the Alexandria National Museum to see items recovered from the underwater archaeological excavations around the coast of the city, as well as some of the over 1800 artefacts that narrate the history of this city over the ages.

After our visit to the museum, we will have lunch in one of Alexandria’s local restaurants, before a visit to Fort Qaitby. The fort was built in the 14th century to protect Alexandria from the advancing Ottoman army. The fort is built on the site of the famous ‘lighthouse of Alexandria’ and some of the stone from the lighthouse was reportedly used in its construction.

In the afternoon we will visit the Bibliotheca Alexandria. This is a modern architectural marvel which is a revival of the ancient Great Library of Alexandria, one of the largest and most significant libraries in the ancient world. You will visit the Antiquities Museum which contains many artefacts recovered from the lost city of Heracleion in the Mediterranean Sea, found by Franck Goddio, the underwater archaeologist.

Check out of the hotel in Alexandria this morning and head south into the desert to the Fayoum Oasis for an introduction to another way of life in Egypt. The Fayoum is thought to be the oldest agricultural area in the world, with its pre-historic peoples having set up farms on the shores of the Qarun Salt Lake. Little has changed since ancient times, the Fayoum is still a major agricultural centre in Egypt, well known for its citrus fruits, nuts and olives.

On arrival we will check into our hotel and have some time to freshen up before driving out to Wadi el Hitan to visit the bones of prehistoric fossilised whales dating back 42 million years.

After checking out Wadi el Hitan, we will make a stop at the Climate Change Museum located with in the Wadi el Hitan UNESCO heritage site. The museum contains a collection of fossils found in the surrounding desert including the largest intact Basilosaurus Isis whale fossil.

Afterwards enjoy lunch on your own in Tunis Village followed a by a visit to the local arts & crafts shops. Tunis Village is absolutely thriving with locally produced pottery. It is a traditional local craft that has been passed down through generations, so it’s only natural that the people of Fayoum have mastered it and produce beautiful pieces that can only be called works of art. The village is full of little pottery workshops scattered here and there, and there is even  a Pottery School.

We will depart the Fayoum today and head for the middle Egyptian town of Al Minya.

This is an exciting day on our Egyptian archaeology tour where we will visit the lost city of Amarna in the desert and the necropolis of Beni Hassan.

The Amarna period marks a strange time in ancient Egyptian history and begins with the ascension of Amenhotep IV in the 18th dynasty, who later changed his name to Akhenaten. Akhenaten changed Egypt’s polytheistic worship of many gods, to a monotheistic religion and the worship of a single god, the Aten sun disc.

Akhenaten also picked up the entire Egyptian capital and moved it out into the desert to a place where ‘the footsteps of the other gods had not trodden’. Today we will walk the streets of Akhenaten’s capital in the desert – Akhetaten ‘the Horizon of the Aten.’ No Egyptian archaeology tour would be complete with out a visit to this area, which is an anomaly in the history of ancient Egypt.

On our journey today we will stop at Abydos, a must see on any Egyptian archaeology tour. Abydos was the cult centre for the god Osiris, the ancient Egyptian god of the underworld. On arrival we will visit the temple of Seti I which contains the king lists of Egypt, showing the country’s rulers as far back as the unification by King Narmer. The temple is very different to other cult temples in Egypt and does not follow the same straight design as temples to other gods which are contemporary.

We will also view to enigmatic Osirion, the purpose of which still alludes Egyptologists. The temple was built below ground level and then buried. Various theories have been proposed for this bizarre feature including that as the temple was for the god of the dead, building it and burying it meant it was closer to the underworld. It has also been proposed that this temple was intended to function as the tomb of Osiris who was once the legendary ruler of Egypt, before his death at the hands of his brother Seth.

Today the temple is partially below the water table, so we will view it from the outside.

Our next stop today will be Dendera, and the the spectacular temple of Hathor. This temple is in an amazing state of preservation and still contains much of its original paint, it also contains one of the first representations of the zodiac.

After our visit to Dendera temple we will head to Luxor, capital of Egypt during it’s golden age for the next 3-nights.

This morning we will transfer over to the west bank of the Nile, to the realm of the dead – a stop of vital importance on any Egyptian archaeology tour. Our first stop will be the archaeological site of the workers village of Deir el Medina, the place where the people lived who toiled away on the tombs of the kings and nobles. In the cliffs nearby, the Tombs of the Workers, who were everyday people can be found. Although much smaller than the royals and nobles tombs they are no less colourful. Workers would often trade their skills with each other to enable them to have a beautiful tomb for the afterlife. In these tombs we will see beautiful scenes of daily life, as well as people ploughing the ‘field of reeds’ in the afterlife.

After we have visited the Tombs of the Workers, we will move onto the Tombs of the Nobles. These tombs are much more elaborate, but instead of daily life usually portray the deceased serving the pharaoh and performing his daily duties.

Our next stop today will be one of the many highlights of your trip, the tomb of Queen Nefertari, wife of Ramses the Great. Much loved by her king, the great royal wife was given her own extensive and elaborate tomb in the Valley of the Queens. The subject of extensive restoration by the Egyptian government, the tomb has been closed to visitors for years. It has recently re-opened to a limited number of visitors.

Our visit to the Valley of the Queens will be followed by lunch in a local restaurant after which we will continue our visit of the west bank at the site of Medinet Habu.

Here there is located a very unique temple which is built in the shape of a fort. It was built as the funerary temple of the 20th dynasty pharaoh Ramses III who spent is reign fighting off the ‘Sea Peoples’ a group of roving marauders who destroyed every civilisation in their path at the end of the bronze age. Egypt was one of the sole survivors of this cataclysmic event and it is clear Ramses III thought he would still be battling the ‘Sea Peoples’ well into the afterlife.

Our final stop for today is the enigmatic funerary temple of Ramses the Great, which sits close by to the temple of Ramses III. The temple, also known as the ‘Ramesseum’, has fascinated scholars and artists since it was discovered during Napoleon’s invasion of Egypt in 1798. The engineers who surveyed the temple at this time referred to it as ‘the tomb of Ozymandias’ and it was here the poet Percy Bysse Shelly was inspired to pen his famous Ozymandias sonnet by the shattered statue of Ramses that lies on its side in the courtyard.

This morning you will experience an active dig site with a private tour of Hierakonpolis.

Hierakonpolis, the City of the Hawk, is one of the most important archaeological sites for understanding the foundations of ancient Egyptian society. Best known as the home of the ceremonial Palette of Narmer, one of the first political documents in history, and attributed to the first king of the First Dynasty at about 3100BC, Hierakonpolis was one of the largest urban centres along the Nile and a vibrant, bustling city containing many of the features that would later come to typify Dynastic Egyptian civilisation. You will have a chance to speak to one of the archaeologists working on the site, and maybe have a chance to dig yourself.

In the afternoon we will head back across the Nile to the west bank stopping first at a place called Deir el Bahari to see the impressive mortuary temple of Hatchepsut, Egypt’s most famous female pharaoh. The temple is set into the cliff face and built in a terraced style. The temple contains a record of Hatchepsut’s reign, most notably a record of a trade route set up with the people of Punt (probably modern-day Ethiopia). The queen of Punt is portrayed as obese, an anomaly when dealing with Egyptian art as stylistically people were always portrayed as perfect. It is likely that obesity was seen as a sign of beauty and wealth by the people of Punt, hence why their queen is portrayed in this manner. See if you can spot her!

Next, we will visit the Valley of the Kings, where the pharaohs of Egypt’s golden age were laid to rest. The first tomb we will visit will be that of the boy king Tutankhamen, the discovery of which in 1912 by Howard Carter is arguably the most sensational discovery in the history of archaeology.

We will visit the colourful tomb of Ramses VI and later the extensive tomb of Seti I. The tomb of Seti I is the longest and most elaborate tomb in the Valley of the Kings. It has been closed for many years and undergone extensive restoration. Now open to the public it admits a limited number of visitors per day.

On our Egyptian archaeology tour this morning, we say goodbye to Luxor and head down the river to Aswan. Along the way we will stop in at the impressive temple of Horus at Edfu.

When the temple was discovered, it was almost completely buried in sand, and to this fact it owes its marvellous state of preservation. The temple was built during the Hellenistic (Greek) period when the gods of the Egyptians were appropriated by the Greeks.

Along the way we will also visit the dual temple of Kom Ombo, as well as the temple of Khnum, the ram-headed god at Esna. We will also make a special visit to the sandstone quarries of Gebel el Silsila, which provided the stone for many of Egypt’s most amazing building project.

We will arrive in Aswan in the afternoon and check in to our hotel.

We will spend today visiting the islands of the Nile.

Our first stop will be the island of Elephantine. Elephantine formed part of the border with Nubia in ancient times and was the cult centre for the ram god Khnum. The island was also an important stone quarry that provided granite for monuments built all over Egypt. Granite from Aswan and Elephantine was used in the construction of the Giza Pyramids and the exact logistics of how these massive stone blocks were transported remains a mystery.

Our next stop is the rarely visited Kalabsha, an ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the western bank of Lake Nasser. The main temple at Kalabsha is dedicated to the Egyptian god Horus, specifically the form of Horus known as Mandulis. Mandulis was a Nubian solar deity associated with healing and protection. The temple was constructed during the Roman period, specifically in the 1st century CE, under the reign of Emperor Augustus. One notable feature of the temple is the colossal statue of the Nubian king Merenptah, who ruled during the 19th Dynasty of ancient Egypt. The statue, measuring about 8 meters (26 feet) in height, was originally erected in commemoration of Merenptah’s military victories.

At sunset we will board a traditional Egyptian sailing boat called a ‘felucca’ for a sail around this beautiful area with a glass of wine in hand. Later we will take another boat to the island of Philae to witness the amazing sound and light show over the temple of Isis.

This morning is free for you to explore Aswan. You may wish to take a felucca across the Nile to visit the nobles tombs located in the cliff face, visit the Nubian Museum or the Monastery of St. Simeon.

For those wishing to travel further afield, take an optional trip to the Temples of Abu Simbel located on the southern shores of Lake Nasser. This activity is not included in the price of the tour and will be offered as an extra at check out.

Abu Simbel - Egyptian Archaeology Tour

In the afternoon we will transfer for Aswan airport and board our flight back to Cairo.

This evening join your trip leader and travel companions for a farewell dinner to reminisce about your amazing Egyptian archaeology tour and to say goodbye.

Say goodbye to the land of the pharaohs as your Egyptian archaeology tour comes to an end this morning with a transfer to Cairo airport.

Journey rating – Journey

This archaeology trip travels through Egypt, a country well accustomed to tourism. Egypt is an Islamic country and women should consider dressing appropriately so as not to cause offense culturally and to avoid attracting unwanted attention, however there is no compulsory dress code. Toilets you encounter in public restrooms or in remote unscheduled stops along the way may be of the eastern ‘squat’ variety. There are some long travel days, but rest assured on arrival we will always be checking in to accommodation that is of a good standard. The ‘hassle factor’ in Egypt can be somewhat confronting, local people often see travellers as an opportunity to make money and may try to give unsolicited ‘help’ in order to gain ‘backsheesh’ or tips. This help could be in the form of carrying your bags, giving you directions or even something as simple as pointing out something in a temple (even something completely obvious). It is necessary on this trip to bring a thick skin and a good sense of humour as this is part of Egypt’s colourful culture.

Facilities such as pharmacies, banks and ATM’s can be found in large cities and towns but will be absent from smaller villages and remote places. Wifi in Egypt will most certainly not be up to the standard you expect at home and will be non-existent in some destinations.

Any dietary requirements should not be an issue while traveling on this trip, provided they are disclosed to Inverted Atlas at the time of booking.

A note about fitness

This Egyptian archaeology tour requires a good level of physical fitness. You should be able to walk up to 4km at times and manage uneven surfaces during sightseeing and while walking around archaeological sites. In addition, you should be able to climb up to 100 stairs unassisted and there is an outside chance you will need to be able to use an eastern style squat toilet (beware if you have knee issues). If you suffer with claustrophobia, please be aware that we will be descending the narrow passages of pyramids and subterranean tombs.

You will need to be able to carry your own luggage to and from the coach and into the accommodation. (Due to OH&S regulations our trip leaders are not able to assist with luggage.) For a small fee locally, porterage can often be arranged – this will be at an additional cost to you and is not payable by Inverted Atlas.

In addition, you should be in good health, with no major chronic conditions requiring frequent medical attention. This trip travels through some remote locations where the availability of a hospital or even phone reception to call an ambulance is limited. While all our trip leaders are required to have a valid first aid certificate, they are far from doctors and any assistance they are able to provide will be limited to basic first aid. For more information please see our booking conditions.

Single supplement

Traveling by yourself? No problem, we love single travellers and don’t believe in penalising them by charging half the trip price again for our single supplement. With us you are only paying the actual cost to have a room all to yourself. If you’re up for making a new friend, you can elect to share with another single traveller (if available) of the same sex and only pay the twin-share price. The choice is yours!

Trip leader description

Accompanying you along your Egyptian archaeology tour will be your Inverted Atlas trip leader. Your trip leader is a logistics extraordinaire, keeps the trip running smoothly and ensures you have the best time possible on your trip. It is important to know that while your trip leader has the best job in the world, they aren’t actually on holidays, but rather they are there to make sure you have the best time while you are on your holiday! Your trip leader may at times need some time out so that they can complete back of house tasks that ensure everyone continues to enjoy the trip. It is also your trip leaders’ job to handle any issues (heaven forbid!) that come up while you’re on your trip like:

  • If you lose your passport or other travel documents
  • If there is a problem with your room at the booked accommodation – seriously please tell your trip leader don’t wait until you leave
  • If you become unwell and need to find a pharmacy
  • Assisting with restaurant recommendations or additional sightseeing during free time
  • Questions regarding the itinerary

This Egyptian archaeology trip is really special and as such requires a special trip leader. In addition to being a logistics extraordinaire and keeping the trip running smoothly, the trip leader on ‘Invaders, Traders and Pyramid Builders’ has an advanced degree in Ancient History and has specialised in Egyptology. This means that in addition to your local Egyptologist guide, you will also have a trip leader who has travelled to Egypt multiple times and knows the country’s archaeological history inside out.

Itinerary disclaimer

This itinerary is correct at the time of upload to our website and we have composed it in good faith. From time to time we may elect to make changes before departure, if we are making a big change we will of course notify you, however if it is a small change this will be reflected in the final trip notes. So, make sure you download these prior to departure. Small changes prior to departure are usually made with the groups best interests in mind and come about due to liaising with our best resources – our past travelers and of course our trip leaders! The ability to change and evolve depending on what our travelers enjoy is what makes us such a great trip operator.

While we strive to operate our trips exactly to the letter of the itinerary, sometimes we may need to make changes on the ground while the group is on the road. This is all part of the adventure of traveling and we would ask that you come on your trip with an open mind and a good sense of humour because as much as we want it to, everything doesn’t always go to plan. In fact, these impromptu situations often make the best stories that you can have a laugh with your friends about later.
