9 Days 8 Nights Egypt Itinerary - Advice Appreciated!

Jump to last reply

Greetings! We are a family of parents and 3 adult daughters who are truly excited about our trip to Egypt in February. We would like to make the best of our 9 days, hence was wondering if the itinerary below is OK?

Day 1: Arrival Cairo 4 a.m. – Pyramid Giza

Day 2: Islamic Cairo & Coptic Cairo – Last flight out to Luxor

Day 3: Luxor : Temple of Karnak, Temple of Medinat Habu, Luxor Temple - Stroll along the souq/bazaars

Day 4: Luxor : Valley of the Artisans, Valley of the Kings, Tomb of Ramses - Night train to Aswan

Day 5: Aswan: Temple of Philae - Felucca ride to Elephantine OR Kitchner's Island – Stroll along the souq/bazaars

Day 6: Abu Simbel at 4am – Back to Aswan – Last flight out to Cairo

Day 7: White Desert

Day 8: White Desert - Cairo

Day 9 Cairo: Zamalek sightseeing/relaxing – Departure at 5 p.m.

Might seem a little rush we know, but we really do not wish to miss the highlights of Egypt... Though, do you reckon the itinerary is feasible? Would it be too much, or just fine? Any helpful suggestions or recommendations would be most appreciated :) Thank you very much in advance and good day!
