Egypt Tours

Home to one of the world’s first great civilisations and more ancient wonders than you can shake a stick at, Egypt needs little introduction. With world famous pyramids, tomb strewn Valley of the Kings and the mighty temples of Abu Simbel, Egypt has attracted travellers since classical times.

But there's more to Egypt than pharaohs, mummies and hieroglyphics. Take a luxury cruise or sail aboard a felucca on the longest river in the world - the Nile, or experience world class diving and snorkelling in the Red Sea. As a leading tour operator in Egypt, we offer a wide range of tours from guided group tours and private tours to tailormade holidays and special tours that take in the Sun Festival at Abu Simbel.

First and foremost, I have to express how much I loved my time in Egypt. I have done many tours in the past and this tour was the best to date. Momo the Tour guide was absolutely exceptional. His passion and incredible knowledge of both ancient and modern Egypt was infectious. He is a very proficient Egyptologist!

Initially when travelling to Egypt I held some reservations because of the media reports at the time. At no point during the tour did I feel in anyway unsafe or threatened. I found the people to be both friendly and welcoming.

Nothing was ever too much trouble for Momo. He consistently went out of his way to ensure we were informed and had a memorable trip. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Egypt and have already recommended your company to friends and family.

I would like to express my gratitude to Momo for making my time in Egypt so memorable. ”

Tour was amazing, Helal was so unbelievably helpful, friendly, safe to be around, trustworthy.”  

• Jun 2015

The tour was everything I hoped it would be. Mahmoud was very knowledgeable and led the group very proficiently. I really have no complaints. I did give 4 stars for the question about the true feel for the country because we spent most of our time seeing ancient sites and museums. We did have opportunities to go to local markets, but the majority of the people we met were in the tourist business. I find it hard to get a feel for a country truly that way. Mahmoud was a great window into the every day life of an Egyptian though. Thanks for the opportunity!”

Recommended places to visit in Egypt

The Pyramids | Giza | Egypt
Ancient Wonders

Pyramids of Giza

The Pyramids of Giza need little introduction, and as the oldest and last standing Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, you wouldn’t want to miss them on any trip to Egypt. Marvel at the sheer size of these ancient wonders, run your finger tips along the 4500-year old stone and crawl down a narrow passageway right into a royal burial chamber within.

Abu Simbel | Egypt
Iconic temples

Abu Simbel

Arguably one of the most impressive ancient sites in Egypt, the two rock temples of Abu Simbel were constructed in dedicated to King Ramses II and are an incredible sight to behold. Marvel at the four colossal statues guarding the entrance of the Great Temple and wander inside its central hall, small chambers and sanctuary, all decorated with hieroglyphics and deity depictions.

Traditional felucca boat | Egypt
Felucca sailng

Cruise down the Nile

With the sun on your face and wind in your hair cruising down the Nile in a traditional felucca sail boat surely is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city and dusty temple complexes. Spend two nights plying the course of the Nile, top up on your tan, dance around beachside bonfires and fall asleep under a blanket of stars.

Bir Wahed hot springs | Siwa Oasis | Egypt
Off the beaten track

Siwa Oasis

At first glimpse you may think you’ve stumbled across a mirage. A lush green oasis rising out of the desert like something out of a daydream, though this particular vision happens to be the real deal. Travelling off the beaten track to Siwa Oasis, learn about Berber culture and take a dip in the bubbling waters of Cleopatra Spring.

Queen Hatshepsut Temple | Luxor | Egypt
Desert necropolis

Valley of the Kings

A vast necropolis where elaborate royal tombs mark the burial ground of pharaohs from the New Kingdom, you won’t want to miss the Valley of the Kings on your trip to Egypt. Wander down into these underground tombs, once decorated with priceless treasures that the pharaoh would have required in the afterlife, and colourful hieroglyphics on the tomb walls.

Egyptian Museum | Cairo | Egypt
Treasures of Tutankhamen

Egyptian Museum

If you want to see some of those priceless treasures which were once enclosed in pharaoh's tombs, then the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is where you want to be. You can even explore an entire gallery devoted to the treasures unearthed in the tomb of Tutankhamen, or those with a strong stomach can enter the Mummy Room where they can see the mummified bodies of former pharaohs.

By the beach in Hurghada | Egypt
Red Sea Relaxation


What better way to top off your time in Egypt than by the sea soaking up the sun on a sandy beach. Once a small fishing down, the now popular Red Sea resort of Hurghada is the perfect place to while away the days, plus why not don a snorkel and mask and check out the excellent coral reefs just offshore.

Absolutely Fabulous! I am so impressed with everything. On the go went beyond my expectation. Thank you ”
