Aswan

— 7 nights
Plan an Aswan holiday and treat yourself to ancient wonders of the past along the Nile River.
Step out of Aswan to go to Kom Ombo and see Temple of Kom Ombo, which is approximately 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Philae Temple, examine the collection at Animalia, delve into the distant past at Unfinished Obelisk, and step off the mainland to explore Agilkia Island.

Cairo

— 12 nights

City of a Thousand Minarets

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Kids will enjoy Safaris and Great Sphinx. Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Pyramids of Giza (in Giza). Spend the 9th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, and walk around Al-Azhar Park.
