Travel to the land of the Pharaohs on our range of tours or discover Egypt's ancient treasures on that special tailor-made holiday. Be sure to plan ahead with our handy Egypt travel guide.

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.

Egypt tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.86 out of 5 based on 391 recent reviews — See All Egypt Reviews

Firstly can i just congratulate you and your company for organising my recent trip to Egypt. From the first email i sent to you , to getting off the plane back in Perth , the entire trip was fantastic. The tour guides and Reps were fantastic. The entire trip was well organised and we all felt very welcomed and well informed throughout the whole trip. When i was leaving Cairo i was the last of my group to leave. The thought of getting through security and customs at the airport was a daunting prospect but your team escorted me all through the process and a possible 2 hour process was reduced to about half an hour. Great stuff.”  

Wayne Taylor • Submitted 15 Nov 2018

Our guide, Waleed, was the best! He guided us every step of the way and even took extra steps to make sure we had a great experience. He was also more like a friend than someone just doing a job. I definitely got to experience the highlights of Cairo and Luxor and got up close to the history that I’ve read about!

We were also lucky enough to have great people in our tour group from all over the world. They added to the experience.

The only downside was the constant hassling from people to buy things. As a tourist, I definitely plan to do some shopping, but I actually bought less because of the hassling. But, I appreciate On The Go for a memorable vacation.”

“Felucca Explorer - An adventure of a lifetime”

The Felucca Explorer tour was a wonderful adventure. My father and I have recently returned from our trip to Egypt and we can highly recommend the tour to the young and old.

Highlights included the Giza pyramid complex, the Great Sphinx of Giza, the Egyptian Museum, Saqqara with the step pyramid, the Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel temples, Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple Complex, Colossi of Memnon, Philae island with the temple of Isis, the temple of Edfu and many more.

Egypt is a safe country to visit with friendly people who are always willing to assist tourist. Our tour was well organized from the moment we landed in Cairo. The coaches used were air-conditioned and very comfortable. The accommodation was excellent and the group we toured with were great company.

MoMo, our Egyptologist, was an excellent and outstanding tour guide with a passion for his country and its rich history. His knowledge of the different sights we visited and their history was indispensable. He taught us some hieroglyphics and by the end of our tour, we were able to recognize most of the Egyptian gods. By the end of the tour, we had a better understanding of Egypt’s ancient and recent history.

The one-day (two evenings) felucca sailing down the Nile was a highlight on its own. Swimming in the Nile, the tranquility of river, picturesque sunsets and starry nights made for an unforgettable adventure. The overnight train brought back memories from times long gone. It was a befitting way to end our Egyptian adventure.

I can highly recommend this tour. ”

Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in Egypt

Will I see the Great Pyramids?

You most certainly will. The world's last remaining ancient wonder has attracted travellers to Egypt throughout the ages and we include this must-see attraction on all our tours. You'll also see the famous Sphinx with the option to ride a camel close to the Pyramids and enter the interior of Khufu. The day of sightseeing also includes the ancient necropolis of Saqqara, home to Zhoser’s step pyramid.

What options do you offer to cruise the Nile River?

On our tours that travel as far south as Aswan, we include a two night felucca cruise as standard. Feluccas are traditional wooden sail boats with mattresses on the deck where you'll sleep at night. A support vessel accompanies the felucca with an on-board toilet and shower. There is always the option to upgrade to a 5 star Nile cruise, which offers well–appointed, outward facing cabins with air-conditioning and private bathrooms. Alternatively, our Jewel of the Nile tour features a 5 star, three night cruise as standard.

Is it safe to visit Egypt?

It's impossible to deem a country safe when you have no control over events but our tours have been departing as scheduled ever since the initial travel ban that surrounded Arab Spring. Recent events have not been directed at tourists and the popular sightseeing area along the Nile has no travel restrictions in place. The FCO advises that there is a heightened risk of terrorism in Egypt but that same advice is also applied to Belgium and France. In other words, Egypt is no unsafer than European destinations during these uncertain times. Consult our Egypt Travel Advice page for up-to-date information on the security situation in Egypt.

I want to include a visit to Petra in neighbouring Jordan - is this possible?

If you want to explore more of the region's ancient wonders, we offer a number of tours that combine Egypt with Jordan and even Israel. Ranging from 12 to 18 days, these multi-country combo tours feature the highlights of both countries including the Rose City of Petra, the otherworldly Dead Sea and the remarkable Wadi Rum. Browse our full collection of Egypt tours for more details.

How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

Our average group size is around 14 passengers and you'll be travelling with an eclectic mix of English-speaking internationals. You can expect a wide range of ages from those in their 20s to those in their 60s or even 70s. On average though the age hovers somewhere around the early to mid 40s.

What is the standard of hotels on your trips?

You'll be staying in 4-5 star accommodation in Egypt with a mix of modern properties and grand, classical buildings that are well-known. Our hotels have been chosen for their great locations, amenities and comfort.

What sort of transport do you use?

For transfers between our hotels and the local sites we travel by private, modern air-conditioned vehicles. This includes airport transfers too. You'll also be travelling by 1st class overnight sleeper train between Cairo and Luxor/Aswan. For more information on the sleeper train in Egypt, check out our Top Travel Tips page. Between Luxor and Aswan you'll cruise the Nile by felucca for a taste of navigation that has been used in these parts for centuries.

When is the best time to visit Egypt for general sightseeing?

Visit between September and April for the most comfortable temperatures and ideal sightseeing conditions. Between March and August temperatures are high and the heat dry. You could consider going for the bi-annual Abu Simbel Sun Festival, which takes place in February and October each year. Not only is the weather great at these times of year but it means you can also coincide your trip with this special event. For more information see our best time to visit Egypt page.
