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.

Egypt tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.88 out of 5 based on 499 recent reviews — See All Egypt Reviews

Tour guide Dino was excellent - very knowledgeable, responsible and took care of everything for us. He was a gentleman in all aspects.

After the tour ended I feel perhaps it would have been perfect if we saw the Cairo Museum at the start of the tour. Once seeing artefacts etc in the museum it would of made more sense to me after we saw the sites (not the other way around) and pictured the pieces insitu.

As you are aware the train ride is very unique but an option to fly would of been nice as well.

Overall though it was a fantastic experience.”  

Angela Giakoumatos • Submitted 11 Jun 2019

Tour was well done with a very enthusiastic guide. Medo made sure we understood where we were going and what we would be doing in the places that we went. He was very knowledgeable and keen to impart his knowledge. He was also careful to warn the group about some of the "other" things we would encounter like touts and how to deal with them.

On the whole, an enjoyable tour and a fulfilment of a long held dream to visit the places and see things that I had only read of in books. ”  

Leslie Yeow • Submitted 8 Jun 2019

This was the most amazing tour. From day 1 the tour guides were extremely helpful and informative. When starting the actual tour of Egypt I knew most of what to we were going to explore, as Medo our guide had given an in depth talk on all aspects. He was very informative and very very passionate about Egyptology throughout the tour. We saw some amazing temples and the Pyramids and learnt all about the history of Ancient Egypt. The felucca Nile part of the tour was exceptional and the food whilst on the felucca was great. The hotels and breakfasts were all very good. The train journey was the least enjoyable part of the trip, but it added to the experience. I have come home knowing an enormous amount of the history and culture of Egypt. It has made me want to return and visit places that I didn't see this time. I feel that Medo has imparted not only the history of Ancient Egypt but also the passion to see and learn more about all aspects of both Modern and Ancient Egypt. I have enjoyed this tour immensely and feel that Medo has made this tour exceptional”

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.
