Our guides and blogs about Egypt are the perfect place to start planning your trip, with information about the country’s top attractions, the logistics of travelling around and what you can expect on our group tours.
People travel to Egypt for many reasons, but here are three of the most popular ones:
From the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo to the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and majestic Abu Simbel, Egypt is home to relics of an ancient civilization we still do not fully understand. The entire country is a living museum, waiting to be explored.
Egypt’s Red Sea coast is the perfect place to enjoy some sun, sea and sand after your cultural tour. From Hurghada to Sharm el Sheikh, these resorts boast reliable weather, turquoise waters and golden sand. The perfect way to end your Egyptian adventure!
The Nile River
The Nile is the lifeblood of Egypt and many other African countries. A Nile cruise is a great way to see more of Egypt. You can travel by felucca – a traditional sail boat. Or you can upgrade to a 5* luxury cruiser and enjoy plenty of amenities onboard.
