More boutique hotels are another newly expanding travel product in Egypt. On Misr Travel’s 12-night Matchless Egypt program, for example, accommodations in Cairo are at the recently opened, 17-suite Le Riad, located in the heart of Cairo within a 5-minute walk of the Khan el Khalil Bazaar. This deluxe tour also includes three nights at the historic Mena House Oberoi Hotel, one night at the Movenpick Resort Aswan, a 3-night cruise aboard the elegant Movenpick HS Royal Lily, and two nights at another romantic and exquisite boutique property in a desert setting: the Al Moudira Hotel outside Luxor. Included in the tour cost of $3,075 pp dbl are tours in Cairo with private car, driver and local guide, local flights and the excursion to the Abu Simbel temples by air from Aswan.
