8-day Egypt itinerary

The Giza Pyramids

The Giza Pyramids are one of the most iconic archaeological sites in Egypt, and have been a popular tourist destination for countless years. Located on the Giza plateau to the west of Cairo, these ancient giants offer visitors an incredible glimpse into the history of ancient Egypt. The three main pyramids that make up the site are believed to have been built between 2550 BC and 2490 BC and were constructed as monuments to the Pharaohs Khufu, Khafra and Menkaure. The Great Giza Pyramid of Khufu is the oldest and largest of all three, standing at an impressive 146 meters tall. Besides the pyramids and the Sphinx, you will also have access to the Valley Temple while you are at this site.

There are the small and luxurious dahabiyas, which are gorgeous wooden boats powered by the wind and featuring enormous sails that dance in the breeze. They can be found with all of the finest, luxurious amenities but also hearken back to the early days of Egyptian travel. Wooden decks, open-air dining and lounging areas at the top decks, and elegant staterooms are all part of the experience.

There are also the larger, modern cruise ships with multiple decks, every possible amenity and even options such as salons, pools and more.

Choosing your preferred vessel is the first step in narrowing down the options in the many 7 night Nile cruises, and then you have to consider the itinerary that appeals to you the most.

Visitors can actually enter the pyramids at Giza although separate tickets need to be purchased at the site for each of pyramid you want to enter. Camel rides are also available at the site but be sure to haggle in order to get the best possible price if you choose to go for a camel ride.

If you feel you would like to enter one or more of the pyramids, then it is highly recommended that you wear a pair of sturdy walking shoes rather than a pair of sandals.

The Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum, is located in central Cairo, Egypt and is one of the most famous and most significant museums in the world. It houses an extensive collection of artifacts and treasures from ancient Egypt. Until recently, the museum also housed the renowned collection of artifacts that were recovered from Tutankhamun’s tomb, along with a number of royal mummies. However, these have now been moved to the new Grand Egyptian Museum at Giza.

The museum is home to more than 100,000 artifacts, showcasing roughly 5,000 years of ancient Egyptian history, providing visitors with a captivating journey through Egypt’s rich history and culture. It is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in Egypt’s long and fascinating history.

Khan El Khalili Bazaar

The Khan El Khalili Bazaar, which is a famous marketplace located in Cairo, features in nearly all of our 8-day Egypt tours. It is one of the oldest and most vibrant bazaars, not only in Egypt but in the entire Middle East, and is best known for its bustling atmosphere and unique shopping experience. The bazaar dates back to the 14th century and it is an extremely popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Here, visitors can find a vast range of goods, including traditional handicrafts, jewelry, fabrics, spices, and souvenirs and tasty street food.

The narrow alleys are filled with shops and stalls, where vendors enthusiastically showcase their products. The lively ambiance, vibrant colors, and the scent of exotic spices create a sensory overload for visitors, making Khan El Khalili Bazaar a must-visit place for those exploring Cairo.

A Magical 5-Star Nile Cruise

Nearly all of our 8 day Egypt tour packages include a five-star Nile cruise, so after your unforgettable sightseeing tour in Cairo, enjoy one more night in Egypt’s bustling capital city, and then you will typically board a domestic flight to Aswan or Luxor Airport. On arrival at the airport, one of our tour representatives will meet you and then you will be taken to board your cruise ship for a journey on the Nile which you will never forget.

All Nile cruise itineraries featured in our 8 day Egypt tours include full board with spacious and comfortable accommodation, three excellent meals each day, and professionally guided daily sightseeing excursions. Many cruise itineraries also include onboard entertainment in the evenings, such as belly dancing shows and folkloric shows. However, the best thing about a Nile cruise Is the fact that you will get to visit several of Egypt’s most iconic historical sites with a professional guide leading the way to ensure that every excursion is more rewarding than ever.


Aswan is a city located in southern Egypt on the east bank of the Nile River. It is known for its rich history and ancient landmarks. One of the most famous landmarks in Aswan is the Aswan High Dam, which was constructed in the 1960s and is a symbol of Egypt’s modernization efforts. The dam not only provides hydroelectric power, but also regulates the flow of the Nile River, preventing flooding and ensuring water supply for irrigation and drinking purposes. Aswan is also home to the Philae Temple, an ancient temple complex dedicated to the goddess Isis, and the Unfinished Obelisk, which remains partially carved in the granite quarry. Overall, Aswan is a city of great historical significance and attracts tourists from around the world.

Kom Ombo 

All of our Nile Cruise itineraries include a visit to Kom Ombo temple which is an ancient Egyptian temple located in the city of Kom Ombo, Upper Egypt. It is an unusual temple as it was dedicated to two gods, Sobek and Horus. The temple features unique architectural designs and carvings, showcasing the skills and craftsmanship of ancient Egyptians. Kom Ombo is a popular tourist destination, attracting visitors from all over the world who are interested in exploring the rich history and culture of ancient Egypt. The temple’s location along the bank of the Nile River also adds to its scenic beauty, making it a must-visit attraction for travelers.

Egypt tour 8 day


Edfu is a city located in southern Egypt. It is best known for its well-preserved Temple of Horus, also known as Edfu Temple. It is one of the best preserved temples in Egypt and a visit to the site is a truly amazing experience. The temple dates back to the Ptolemaic period and is dedicated to the falcon-headed god Horus. Edfu is a popular tourist destination due to its rich historical and archaeological significance. Visitors can explore the impressive temple complex, which includes various chambers, halls, and sanctuaries.


Luxor is a city also located in southern Egypt, along the east bank and west banks of the River Nile. It is often referred to as the “world’s greatest open-air museum” due to its immense collection of ancient Egyptian temples and other ancient sites. Luxor is home to several famous sites such as the Valley of the Kings where many famous pharaohs were buried, including pharaoh Tutankhamun. You will also get to visit the ancient Karnak Temple complex, one of the largest religious ever built. Besides these two historical sites, you will also get to visit Luxor Temple, Hatshepsut Temple and the Colossi of Memnon which are two colossal ancient statues.

Rest assured, a Nile River cruise is a once in a lifetime experience. From the breathtaking Temple of Philae in Aswan, to the Valley of Kings and the sprawling Karnak Temple complex in Luxor, a Nile cruise is an experience which will leave you with memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life. And, since all of our 8-day Egypt tours are customizable, if you would rather enjoy a Lake Nasser cruise instead of a Nile cruise, simply let us know and we will customize your chosen tour package accordingly.

Keep in mind though that while we can customize any Egypt itinerary listed on our website, we are not able to customize Nile cruise itineraries or Lake Nasser cruise itineraries.

Returning to Cairo

If you book one of our 8-day Egypt tours that include a Nile River cruise, you will typically return to Cairo by way of a short domestic flight on the 7th day of your tour, the same day your Nile cruise ends. When you land at Cairo Airport, your tour manager and a driver will be waiting for you, and then you will be transferred to the 4 or 5-star hotel where you’ll be spending your last night in Egypt. There are no tours scheduled for this day, so once you have checked in at your hotel you will be free to enjoy the rest of the day as you wish.

Nile Cruise Alternatives

At EgyptVacations.com, we believe it is your vacation and you should be able to enjoy it your way to ensure that you have the most amazing trip imaginable. If a Nile River Cruise does not appeal to you, then how about some private guided tours in Cairo and Luxor followed by a few days of relaxation at one of Egypt’s coastal resorts such as Hurghada or Sharm El Sheikh?

Alternatively, you could enjoy unforgettable sightseeing tours in Egypt followed by a short break in Jordan during which you will have the opportunity to visit attractions such as Mount Nebo, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, and the magnificent Lost City of Petra before your flight back home.

As has already been mentioned, all of our 8-day Egypt tours can be customized and/or tailored to meet your own unique needs and requirements.
