Family Tour of Egypt

Cairo / Aswan / Luxor
Fully Escorted
8 days/ 7 nights

Weekly departures year round

This is a tour designed for families with children ranging in age from preschool to teens. While the program features introduction to the major historic sites of Egypt it does so in a "hands on" environment by exposing them (the children) to a living history example of what life was like in ancient Egypt for both the royal families and the workers. Instead of being "tombed out" by repetitious visitations to places that after a few days all resemble one another, they are transported in time to relive the adventure and thrill of events as they occurred. Not only that, but they will be entertained by camel rides into the desert, sailing on the Nile in a Felucca (native sailboat), entering a pyramid and feeling the mystery, climbing around old fortresses and perhaps, should you desire, a hot air balloon ride over the Necropolis of Thebes. They will come to know the sophisticated city children of Cairo and the village children of upper Egypt.

And yet they will have time to enjoy the family oriented first class hotels, chosen especially for this tour, that offer not only fine accommodations but giant swimming pools, entertainment centers, playgrounds and all kinds of sports activities. Regardless of anything else it is the guide who makes a trip special. Your guides are all fathers and grandfathers, men who have raised children and know their moods and levels of interest and understanding plus how to keep them entertained.
