Day 6. Alexandria – Cairo Airport – Aswan

Overnight – Sofitel Legend Old Cataract

You are assisted with your checkout in the morning and driven to Cairo airport where you are assisted with your check-in to your early afternoon flight to Aswan. Arrive at Aswan and you are driven to your spectacular historic hotel where you are assisted with your check-in. The Old Cataract has hosted royalty, such as Princess Diana and Tsar Nicholas II, and many top leaders of the world as well as celebrities for over a century. After staying here, Agatha Christie set part of ‘Death on the Nile’ in the hotel, and the motion picture was partially filmed here. Guests who want to really enjoy this legendary hotel and its extensive facilities can ask us to add an additional day at Aswan. Other activities such as a felucca cruise to a popular touristy Nubian Village can be added.

The famous guests who stayed here a long time ago obviously did not expect central heating and were fine with the cold hallways, common areas and dining venues at the historic hotel. Today’s luxury travelers are not, so we caution you about the fact that the hotel, along with the historic Winter Palace in Luxor, can be very cold during winter, especially December through February. Egyptian guidelines for historic buildings make the possibility of the hotel operators adding heating a prohibitively expensive proposition with limited benefits. We caution our guests to have ample warm clothing for their stays at these hotels during winter.
