If you are travelling to Egypt and have a day or two to spare, join us for a day tour of some of the country’s most famous sights. Picked up from the doorstep of your hotel and guided by an English-speaking tour guide you’ll explore city sites and beyond, from the world-famous pyramids and monumental Sphinx in Giza, to the awe-inspiring temples of Abu Simbel. Plus don’t forget the delightful Mediterranean city of Alexandria and the historic battle site of El Alamein.
Twice a year, Abu Simbel is witness to one of Egypt’s most famous events – the Sun Festival. Marked to coincide with both the birthday and the coronation of King Ramses II, first thing in the morning as the sun rises the inner sanctum of the temple fills with light. Inside sit the 4 statues; Ramses himself, Amun and Ra-Horakhty (the Gods of the Sun) and Ptah (the God of Darkness). Amazingly when the light filters through, all but Ptah are illuminated.
Named one of the 'Seven Underwater Wonders of the World', the Red Sea in Egypt is superb for diving and Dahab is a holiday hotspot for SCUBA divers and snorkellers. We have a range of PADI 'Learn to Dive' and certified diver packages that are of exceptional value and for beginners and pro's alike. Perhaps combine the sights of Cairo with diving and relaxation at the Red Sea or consider a longer sightseeing tour and dive course combination too.
We pride ourselves on being a specialist in Egypt, with a large range of group tours to choose from that cover all of Egypt’s main attractions and then some. But if our group tours don’t have you reaching for your passport, we also have an established collection of tailor-made holidays, family holidays and private journeys to suit all tastes.
