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.

Egypt has long attracted British archaeologists seeking to discover ancient treasures, from the tombs of the Valley of the Kings to King Tutankhamen's iconic death mask. Today, Egypt continues to entice British travellers looking to explore those same wonders with the Pyramids of Giza likely to be top on everyone's list. Luxor, one of the world's greatest open-air museums, would be a close second with its incredible temple complexes and royal tombs. With year-round warm temperatures and daily sunshine, Egypt also satisfies the British love of good weather and what better way to enjoy it than with a cruise down the Nile river.

View All Festival Tours

For a holiday in Egypt that's out of the ordinary, consider one of our unique tours that combine the highlights of ancient Egypt with a special dawn visit to Abu Simbel to witness a true spectacle. Our Sun Festival trips coincide with the birthday (21 October) and coronation day (21 February) of King Ramses II when the temple's inner sanctum is illuminated by the sun's ray. With incredible architectural precision, Ramses II had his entire temple carefully angled and oriented for this precise event. read more

The architectural brilliance of the ancient Egyptians: The original Abu Simbel temple was built in the 13th century BC by King Ramses II. With four separate statues depicting Ramses at various stages of his adult life at the temple's entrance, it’s an impressive monument before one even enters. Carved out of the mountainside, the temple’s inner sanctum also has four statues; three of which - Amun-Re, Re-Herakhte and Ramses the god - are illuminated by the sun’s rays twice a year on the sun festival, whilst the statute of Ptah (the god of darkness) remains in the shadows. But the wonders don’t stop there. In the late 1960s, the shoreline of Lake Nasser was in danger of eroding the temple foundations and damaging it permanently. Engineers relocated the temple further up the bank, which means it now aligns with the sun a day later than it did in Ramses' day.

I was wanting to let you know how wonderful our experience was when touring Egypt.

Not only was the whole experience exceptional of seeing the Pyramids, and Temples, Valley of the Kings and everything else in the tour. From the very moment we landed we were greeted and very well looked after, all the way until boarding the plan again to return home.

I would like to also commend Ahmed Halel for his remarkable knowledge, his professionalism on our tour. Also the hospitality and looking after us all. Ahmed made us feel very welcome and made the experience for us as well as the children and very enjoyable one. An experience that we will all remember for ever. ”

I, like a lot of people, was both excited and apprehensive about going to Egypt, a place I had wanted to visit since childhood. Egypt is a fabulous country and the history and sights are beyond imagination one of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Abu Simbel, I had seen pictures however the reality was something else.

We were very fortunate to be with a brilliant tour guide in Mahmoud, we learnt so much about his country and we were also incredibly lucky to be with an amazing group of people.

The first few days of the tour were fairly jam packed with history, we had opted to do the day trip from Cairo to Alexandria, a beautiful city by the sea and well worth a visit. Words cannot describe how it was to see the pyramids and the Sphinx at first hand.

We upgraded to the Nile Cruise, a highlight for me was sitting on the top deck of the ship after dark as it cruised down the Nile, hearing the calls to prayer and the sounds of Africa as we passed. We saw Kom Ombo and Edfu whilst on the ship until we finally disembarked in Luxor. The final few days of the tour were spent in a beach resort in Hurghada, the hotel was luxurious with a private beach and pool.

I must mention how helpful all the staff were from On the Go or hotel staff wherever we stayed and all we were astonished at how fast we were able to transit passport control and baggage reclaim in Cairo on both arrival and departure. ”

First tour that we have ever done. On the go tours really kept us ‘on the go’. We loved Egypt and the the tour. There is so much to see, learn and experience. The unplugged tour gave a good snapshot. Yasser our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Egyptology and was very informative.”

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.
