Egypt Tours

Win a trip to Egypt for 2 with flights!

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.

My time in Egypt has been a memorable experience and one that will stay with me for a lifetime. I have loved every minute of it, the history, culture, temples, food and people have made my time in Egypt one of the best holidays I have ever had. This country is amazing and I wanted to especially acknowledge and thank our awesome tour guide Momo who took me on this wonderful journey in this fascinating country.

Momo looked after our group like we were family and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the whole trip. Each place we visited was made more memorable by his enthusiastic and passionate delivery that made the stories of Pharaohs, Dynasties and Gods of ancient worlds come alive. A true expert in his field and an asset to On the go

After a day of sight seeing Momo would then take us to the most fantastic places to eat and I now have a love for Egyptian & Nubian food, Turkish coffee and grape sisha. As well as Momo, thank you to the rest of the On the go team, Emil who always welcomed us with a big smile and Bishaw my fantastic guide on the wonderful Nile cruise you guys are awesome.

My friends and family were concerned that I would be travelling to Egypt but this is one of the safest countries I have ever visited and at no time was I ever concerned for my safety or my valuables. I will certainly recommend Egypt & On the go to my friends and family. This was my first trip to Egypt and I know it won’t be my last I have seen so many amazing things and made some wonderful friends. ”

The tour was wonderful and well organized. Momo was great, always checking in and giving us his time 100% including in his free time when we would go for dinner or to a coffee house. Would definitely recommend to friends for a stress free and authentic way to see Egypt. ”

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 ”
