A once in a lifetime adventure unlike any other I’ve ever experienced!

I had a once in a lifetime trip to Egypt! I have never taken a group tour before and was hesitant. All my fears were gone the moment there was someone waiting for me before customs and expedited my arrival, helped with luggage, and delivered us to our hotel with ease. The tour began officially by meeting with Tonga to sort paperwork and scheduling. He was patient and efficient after the long trip to Egypt. Once we started off on our adventures they were one after the other each day better and better. So many new experiences, people, places, colors, scenery. All painting the perfect picture of the magic, beauty, and contrast of ancient and present day Egypt. I met some friends I know I will have forever and had experiences I will treasure. The highlight for me being the 2 night felucca trip. The Nile is a monolith of if it’s own and lives up to the hype. The Nile valley takes your breath away from sunrise to sunset and the moon will captivate your dreams. My trip would not have been the same without our amazing guide, Dino! Dino was so organized, helpful, PATIENT, caring, funny, and knowledgeable. He made 13 strangers with all different personalities and travel experience feel like a cohesive family unit in a short period of time with ease. He explained all the histories and mythology with clarity and answered questions and concerns with pleasure. I feel so lucky to have experienced Egypt through his eyes. شكرا”

Time of my life

I wish I could put 6 stars! The tour was seamless from the time I landed in Cairo to the time I was back at the airport. Our guide Dino had so much local knowledge, was patient and really made the trip. I found everything to be straight forward and clear - I loved every minute. Thank you guys so much. Well, other than Dino being the best guide I could ask for, I met a bunch of amazing people along the way - and one special person in particular... From seeing the pyramids to an overnight sleeper train, myriad temples and markets, floating down the Nile on a fellucca (the highlight) and swimming in the red Sea, there is not much else we could have asked to do in 13 days! I never once felt unsafe or in trouble (even in some of the dark back streets...) and would do another on the go tour in a heartbeat. Thank you to everyone we dealt with.”

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.
