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.Read More

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.”
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. ”
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”
