As this luxurious Egyptian journey unfolds, you'll come face-to-face with the majestic pyramids of Giza and discover the treasures of Tutankhamun at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
With over 120,000 items, there are two main floors in the museum; on the ground floor there is an extensive collection of large-scale works in stone including statues, reliefs and architectural elements. The first floor is dedicated to smaller works, including papyri, coins, textiles, and an enormous collection of wooden sarcophagi.
Next, fly to Aswan, where you will board the Kazazian and set off on a 5-night cruise to explore the unforgettable pharaonic tombs and temples of Upper Egypt. Resembling a super-yacht, the futuristic-looking Kazazian Nile Cruise is in a league of its own in terms of exclusivity and service and has just nine cabins, each luxuriously furnished, and with views over the Nile.
Every dish in the fine dining restaurant is prepared by onboard chefs, who proudly source local organic ingredients from markets along the route of the cruise. For a less formal dining experience, the Mode Kitchen & Bar offers great cooking and fresh, delicious flavours, celebrating different genres of cuisine in a beautiful setting.
While aboard, you'll be able to join your onboard Egyptologist guide on sightseeing forays, spend time relaxing on the elegant sundeck, take a dip in the eye-catching swimming-pool, and enjoy the mesmerizing views as the stunning Nile scenery glides effortlessly by.
