Egypt

View On The Go's Egypt trips

Egypt is an incredible country, offering tourists and historians the chance to see some of the most amazing man-made buildings ever created. The great pyramids of Giza hardly need an introduction, but why not take a trip further south and explore the legendary temple of Abu Simbel; built in tribute to King Ramses II? Egypt also has its fair share of natural wonders. Sail gently down the mighty Nile River, take in the solitude of the Western Desert, enjoy world-class diving at the Red Sea or catch a sunset from the top of the famous biblical landmark of Mt. Sinai.
