Ancient wonders. Hidden treasures. Endless seas and golden sand. Make lifelong memories on our award-winning Egypt trips.
Once a land of dynasties and decadence; now a land where time stands still. We'll take you into the shadows of history with our Egypt tour packages.
Egypt is home to more ancient wonders than you can possibly see in one visit - though we'll give it a good go on our trips! From the iconic Pyramids of Giza in Cairo to Luxor's Valley of the Kings, you'll never run out of things to see if you come back to Egypt time and time again.
Discover the tombs of pharaohs in Luxor, one of the world's greatest open-air museums, and head south to the awe-inspiring temple of Abu Simbel. Cruise the mighty Nile by traditional felucca sailing boat, or by luxury Nile cruiser. For those in need of some sun, sea, and sand, many of our tours visit the popular resort of Hurghada, which is ideally located on the Red Sea with plenty of water-based activities to keep you entertained.
As a leading operator in Egypt, we offer a wide range of trips, from our award-winning guided group tours to Tailor-made holidays and unique adventures that take in the Sun Festival at Abu Simbel.

Sherif is an amazing guide who was really knowledgeable and keen to answer our many questions.
His sunny personality brought our group together as a family from day one and we had the most wonderful time exploring the wonders of ancient Egypt with a super group of people.”
Lovely trip enjoy it very much.”
The tour was fabulous and what increased the value was the guide. Sherif was very knowledgeable, kind and truly cared about his group. If someone was separated from the group, he immediately doubled back to be sure all was ok. He was helpful not only at the historic sites but also when we snorkeled. He is a perfect ambassador for Egypt. I will definitely be sending people your way. Nice pace too. Busy day followed by a little less busy day. The venues were fabulous. Great job! ”
Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in Egypt
Will I see the Great Pyramids?
What options do you offer to cruise the Nile River?
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?
There are rarely any dangerous events in Egypt these days and these are not directed at tourists. 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 some parts of Egypt but that same advice is also applied to Belgium and France. We do not visit anywhere deemed unsafe by the British Foreign Office on our tours.
In other words, Egypt is no less safe 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?
How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?
What is the standard of hotels on your trips?
What sort of transport do you use?
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?
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.
