Day 3: Heading to Aswan

Enjoy a sumptuous meal with the guide at a traditional restaurant to acquaint yourself with the food as well as the customs. Then, transfer to the airport to catch a flight south to the old desert town of Aswan. Draped around the River Nile, Aswan combines the ancient-world atmosphere of the camel caravans with Middle Eastern architectural beauty and also a slow pace that makes everyone feel relaxed immediately. This has always been an oasis providing a retreat for solo travelers. Spend your evening settling into the rhythm of Aswan, an old city on the Nile that has always been loved by solo travelers.

Day 4: A Full Day tour of Aswan

In the morning, enjoy a delicious and traditional breakfast and meet your new guide to planning out the day. There are plenty of attractions that can be visited, and the beauty of traveling alone is that the agenda is created to suit just your very own mood.
