    yes, it is possible to do this, first get yourself a good guide book i like the lonely planet guides. if you start in Cairo you can see the Giza pyramids, the museum, ( most important)maybe khan El khalili and saquarra and memphis as well. 2 days. fly or take the night train to luxor this is cheaper but you need advice on how to get tickets ( I’m not sure cos i have never done it)in luxor use taxis to get around and see the valley of the kings, valley of the queens, deir el bahri, karnak temple, ether the small museum there and or luxor temple. minimum 2 days. to get to Aswan you can take a taxi or coach or fly if you have time and money you can cruise to Aswan 2 days sailing. fabulous experience. on route see edfu and kom ombo. at Aswan see Philae and the unfinished obelisk , take a coach ride( 4 hours each way) or flight to abu simble. a further 2 days. i would build in a rest day as well which leaves you with 3 more days. You could use these to visit the red pyramid and the Benny pyramid in Cairo. or the valley of the artisans and or valley of nobles and medinet habu , rameseum. all of the above are worth seeing. but you need to decide if maybe this schedule is so hectic you will not remember the different places or be too tired to appreciate them. if you want more advice contact me

    edit yes you can reply to us click on our pictures and you will get up our profile page at the top it will tell you if we accept e mail… incidentally i do click on the e mail icon and it will give you a direct message windo which is e mailed to us.
    please do contact me. can give you LOTS of impartial advice and yes you can get a guide ofr one person but i would advise getting different guides in each town, not taking one with you all the way.

    I went on an Egyptian tour with them last Christmas and I fully enjoyed myself.

    I travelled alone and so do many other people and you soon make friends.

    The price is competitive.

    Well done for choosing December. The winter months are by far the best time to go down into Egypt. Temperatures average about 25 degrees centigrade during this time of the year as opposed to the summer when it averages about 45-50 degrees centigrade. Far to hot for sight-seeing!

    Hey the first time I went to Egypt was in 2005- summer, I went with a travel buddy, someone I knew of course and we had a blast. I didn’t want to go with a tour guide because I knew I wouldn’t feel as comfortable as I would have with someone I knew. If you need a travel buddy I would highly reccommend taking someone you know- a friend, or family, I took my cousin. Have fun, you will love it.
