Overview

More beautiful than a desert mirage and with thousands of years of history and culture waiting to be uncovered, Egypt is a destination that will leave you speechless. This dazzling two-for-one tour, which takes in all the highlights of Egypt, is guaranteed to have you – and a friend – talking about its wondrous sights, sounds and experiences for years to come.

Over 14 unforgettable days, you’ll take in icons like the Pyramids at Giza, journey through the ages at the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities – home to the Tutankhamun exhibit – and soak up the colour and vibrancy of Old Cairo. Switching gear, climb aboard a Nile River cruise to admire the changing landscape and the extraordinary temples of Edfu, Kom Ombo and Horus. The famed Valley of the Kings – resting place for many of the great pharaohs – is destined to be a highlight, as is the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Although it could easily end there, you’ll also have the opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful Hurghada, a resort town on the Red Sea.

Along the way, you’ll enjoy return flights with Emirates Airline, eight nights of 4-star hotel accommodation, including three at a beachfront resort, in addition to 22 meals, informative commentary from an English-speaking Egyptologist guide and so much more!

However, they are not required to have specific art, architecture, or historical knowledge. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and, if caught doing so, can be fined.

You must be a Qantas Frequent Flyer member to earn points. A joining fee may apply. Membership and points are subject to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program terms and conditions.

To earn Qantas Points with Qantas Tours, Members will be required to provide a valid Frequent Flyer number and last name at checkout. Only the lead traveller, the primary contact for the booking, will earn 3 Qantas Points per AU$1 spent (including GST) on eligible holiday packages. Qantas Points will not be earned and cannot be redeemed on any amounts payable directly to the hotel. Conditions apply. Qantas Points will be credited to a member's account up to 8 weeks after tour completion. Qantas Points will not be earned on cancelled bookings.

In addition to the 3 Qantas Points per AU$1 spent, each Frequent Flyer member who enters their Qantas Frequent Flyer number into the booking will also earn Status Credits and Qantas Points on the flight component of the package. The amount you earn depends on your flights, the operating airline, fare class and member status.
