About this trip

(8 Nights/9 Days) Tours starts and finishes in Cairo

Awesome ancient wonders, endless golden sands and atmospheric local souqs make Egypt the ultimate travel destination.

Cairo/Aswan/Nile River/Luxor/Cairo

From the enigmatic aura of the Sphinx to the imposing glory of the Pyramids, imagine stepping into the Land of the Pharaohs and discovering the exotic charms of evocative Egypt with our wonderful Egyptologist.

Can you see yourself relaxing on the deck of our river boat cruising the Nile, sipping mint tea after just having had a blissful massage, wondering if this is what Cleopatra felt like!

Picture yourself in the souks with the colours and smells of an ancient world shopping for cotton, alabaster and jewellery. Or visiting one of the local perfumeries and learning about the healing wonders of different herbs and flowers, whilst stocking up on beautiful oils.

Walk with us through the ancient wonders – Valley of the Kings, King Tut’s Tomb, and the Temple of Karnak. This is a world only imagined in your wildest dreams and we have created the ultimate package to Egypt that will enchant and capture your heart during your trip but also for many years to come.

Haytham (Sam) – our wonderful Egyptologist will be our guide throughout this journey, Sam, has over 15 years industry experience in guiding groups through his beloved Egypt. He will personally step us through a living history lesson from the pyramids to the ornately decorated temples and tombs and to the famous Tomb of King Tut in the Valley of the Kings. Egyptology covers a very wide and diverse range of studies. Egyptology investigates the range of ancient Egyptian culture, including the people, language, literature, history, religion, art, economics and architecture.

  • Tip for our tour guide. We suggest $15AUD per day per person, however I have always felt it is based on ‘reward for service’ and relative to how much you enjoyed the tour.

 This tour has a lot of walking and requires a moderate level of fitness. There are steep stairs, uneven roads and getting on and off boats. Sites are large and sometimes hot, you may need to walk several kilometres around a single site and do two in a day. You need to be fairly fit to attend this tour.

My third retreat with Vibrant Women and it was, as ever, a blissful event. Tranquil environment, delectable food, inspiring and nourishing content and practices, topped off by fantastic company with like-minded and yet a diverse mix of individuals. I cannot recommend Tammie and Vibrant Women enough - whoever you are and whatever you're seeking, there's bound to be something in one of these retreats for you.

I had a great time as usual. Tammie is the best organiser & host. She keeps us entertained and makes sure we are all enjoying ourselves. Even in these difficult times, nothing was a problem that couldn’t be solved. Food was the best I’ve had on any retreat thus far. I had a fabulous time and would highly recommend any of Tammie’s Retreats or tours. She goes beyond! Chez

l have travelled with Tammie on many retreats: Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu, Awaba, Mount Alford and Port Douglas. Each retreat is a different experience with the same amount of care taken to ensure you feel safe and well catered for. There is always the right amount of adventure, local experiences and down time. The camaraderie between the women is warm and often hilarious. Tammie's organisational skills and attention to detail are smooth and seamless, which make for a most enjoyable experience. Western Australia here I come. Cheryl
