I would like to let you know that I loved my tour of Egypt. The tour was well organized and the itinerary covered all the places I really wanted to see. It was made even better by Mahmoud, our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered every question I had. He even rearranged our time in Luxor and spread it out over 2 days. It made a huge difference to me and every other person on our tour. Egypt was wonderful but Mahmoud made it amazing!”
Hi, I just wanted to say how great the King Tutankhamun tour and our guide Mahmoud Ramadan were. The tour showcased the best of Ancient Egypt and Mahmoud was fantastic. He took such great care of the group and he knows an incredible amount about Ancient Egypt. Even when i got a cold he assisted me with going to a pharmacy. He was very informative at all the ancient sites and took us to local restaurants and markets/stores at all our destinations that provided a great feel for modern Egypt. Thanks to him and the tour I have walked away with a great respect and understanding of both ancient and modern Egypt. ”
The tour was very well organized. Alam did an excellent job of getting us to all the activities while staying just enough in the background so we could enjoy our time in Egypt. We were well taken care of and the various arrangements were quite satisfactory. We felt safe, and that we had a first hand experience of both old and new Egypt. I'd recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience this part of the world. On a more personal note, we found Alam to be a very personable guide, very easy to get along with and accommodating of our needs. He's an excellent representative of not only your company but also of Egypt.”

Recommended places to visit in Egypt
With so many ancient wonders to choose from putting together a wish-list of Egypt's sites can be slightly overwhelming so to help we've put together a selection of the best with a bit of beach and river cruising thrown in for a little variety.
The capital of Cairo is a fascinating introduction to modern Egypt with plenty of world-class sights. The Pyramids of Giza need little introduction as the oldest and last standing Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. If you want to see some of the priceless treasures once enclosed in pharaoh's tombs, then the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is the place to go with mummies too.
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 town, the now popular Red Sea resort of Hurghada is the perfect place to while away the days with excellent snorkeling opportunities around the colourful coral reefs just offshore. It's also a great place to try windsurfing and kiteboarding with reliable winds year-round.
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.
Situated on the banks of the River Nile, the Nubian city of Aswan enjoys a scenic setting across from the granite-clad Elephantine Island in the south of Egypt. Here you can stroll along the broad Corniche, shop to your heart's content in the bustling souks, dine in floating restaurants, visit the impressive High Dam and explore the ancient Philae Temple on Agilika Island.
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 and Luxor. 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.
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 or opt for a luxury cruise with all mod-cons.

Egypt Travel Advice:
We keep abreast of the latest travel advice to Egypt and follow advice as set out by the British Foreign Office. Please be assured that safety of our travellers is paramount and our tours will only visit places that the Foreign Office advises are safe to travel to. We recommend that your check the latest travel advice from the relevant advisory body in your country.
With recent events in the Middle East Region, travel advice to Egypt does change from time to time. At this point in time, we are using the sleeper train service between Cairo and/or Luxor and Aswan, as the Interior Ministry in Egypt disallows foreign nationals to travel on the seated service. We are also not running tours to the Siwa Oasis and will re-evaluate this again as soon as the FCO lifts the current travel ban to Egypt's Western Desert.
The FCO currently advises against all but essential travel by air to or from Sharm el Sheikh airport. None of our group tours include Sharm el Sheikh and so our group tours remain unaffected by this travel alert. We will be monitoring the situation closely.
