Tour of Egypt, Ancient and Modern
Exploring Egypt becomes a unique, very personal adventure in the hands of Four Seasons.
Updated May 30, 2012—Egypt’s 5,000-year-old culture spans everything from sophisticated cities to the mystique of the Nile. For experiences that you’ll savour for a lifetime, let Four Seasons create your Egyptian encounter.
You can begin and end your tour with different, albeit equally comfortable, stays in Cairo. On the Nile’s west bank, Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence is an elegant Belle Époque-style sanctuary with views to Giza’s Great Pyramid. Besides personalised tours to Giza and the Egyptian Museum, the Concierge can arrange a sunset felucca ride on the Nile or an excursion to Fayoum, a lush oasis in the desert.
Soaring above the Nile’s east bank, Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza has a contemporary resort-like feel. Silk wall coverings and marble reflect the warmth of its hospitality. The entire fifth floor houses Cairo’s largest spa, leading to a rooftop terrace with three heated pools.
More European than Middle Eastern, ancient Alexandria has evolved into one of the region’s most chic Mediterranean resorts. Cooled by sea breezes, Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano evokes the glamour of the Côte d’Azur. After immersing yourself in the city’s historic past, enjoy a sunset cocktail at Bleu or a marvellous summer seafood dinner on the Hotel’s private beach.
Sharm El Eheikh
At the tip of the Sinai Peninsula, Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh is a secluded village-like Resort, where every guest room has a private balcony with an enchanting view. World-class diving on the coral reefs of Ras Mohammed National Park or explorations of the Sinai Desert by Jeep or camel can easily be arranged. Cruising the Nile and visiting Luxor—home to almost a third of the world’s antiquities—are “musts.” Four Seasons will arrange the best itinerary, accompanied by your personal Egyptologist.
