Egypt Tours & Package Trips

Ancient wonders. Hidden treasures. Make lifelong memories on our award-winning Egypt trips. Book your Egypt package today!

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 explore 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 of small group Egypt tours, we offer a wide range of award-winning trips, plus a selection of private tours, family holidays, and unique adventures that take in the Sun Festival at Abu Simbel.

Egypt Group Tours

Egypt was our first destination, way back in 1998. This means we've had a long time to perfect our Signature escorted tours and give you the best trip possible to the Land of the Pharaohs! You won't miss a thing on your Egypt package, from the Pyramids of Giza to the Valley of the Kings. Sail the Nile aboard a felucca (or upgrade to a luxury Nile cruise!), unwind on the beaches of Hurghada and delve into Cairo's best museums. You'll be escorted the entire way by a degree-qualified local English-speaking tour guide, and you'll stay in the best centrally-located 4-5 star hotels Egypt has to offer.

We also offer a range of combination tour packages, so you can visit Egypt and then go on to explore Jordan and Israel, or Turkey. And our range of festive tours means you can enjoy an extra special Christmas and New Year's adventure. See our full range of Egypt trips below. You can book online, or do not hesitate to contact our team if you have any questions or would like to enquire about a trip!

Egypt Private Tours

If you would like to explore Egypt on a private tour, with just a group of your friends and family, then this can be arranged for you. We can do many of our group itineraries on a private basis, or you can book a private Egypt package like the ones below. Reach out to our team for more information and to start planning your private Egypt adventure!

Egypt Sun Festival Tours

Every year on the 22 February and 22 October, the rising sun illuminates the inner sanctum of Abu Simbel, the temple of Ramses II. It was so designed by the king himself, in order to celebrate his birthday and the anniversary of his ascension to the throne. Centuries later, travellers and locals alike come together at Abu Simbel at dawn to celebrate. For an extra special trip to Egypt, browse our range of Sun Festival tours.

The Grand Egyptian Museum 2023 - The Perfect Time for Egypt Trips

After years of delays, the Grand Egyptian Museum is finally slated to open in 2023. As soon as the museum opens to the public, we will stop visiting the existing Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square on our Egypt trips and will explore the new facility instead. The Grand Egyptian Museum will display never before seen artifacts, feature the near-complete Tutankhamun collection (including his gold funerary mask), and make use of exciting new technology such as virtual reality to give visitors a museum experience like no other, all in the shadow of the pyramids! It's a good time to be booking your Egypt package!

Alexandria & Ancient Egypt - 13 Days
I have recently returned from a wonderful fortnight in Egypt. This took in the ancient port city of Alexandria, the war cemeteries and sites of El Alamein, and then carried on from the hustling capital city of Cairo to all the impressive monuments and temples that Egypt is famed for. The tour was made even better by the organisation that OTG provided, both at home, and also in Egypt. From the time I was met at Cairo airport by a representative, to the time I left, the whole tour ran like clockwork. We had three guides in Egypt. Shariff, who took us around Alex and El Alamein; Alam who guided us on the optional excursion around the 'Back Streets of Cairo', and finally Nader who accompanied us for the remainder of the tour. All three without exception were brilliant. Very easy to approach and converse with, fun and full of anecdotes about their country, and of life in Egypt generally. They are clearly all very proud to represent their country, and all should take groups for OTG around Egypt in the future. The trip was held together by Amr, the local rep who did all the behind the scenes work and admin. Again, nothing was too much trouble for him. The transport and drivers we had were also very good. The drivers were prompt and efficient, and the buses were clean, comfortable and very spacious. I enjoyed the felucca trip up the Nile, although the bathroom facilities were rather limited. That aside, the crew were very polite and efficient, and the chef cooked up some excellent meals for us! Possibly the only transport I wasn't so taken by was the overnight sleeper train service, particularly the journey from Cairo to Aswan. I didn't find it very comfortable, and spent most of the night awake! However, this is only a minor 'grumble', and I didn't let it detract from what was otherwise a first rate holiday. I personally had a terrific time, and would definitely recommend On The Go, and this tour, if anyone is thinking of visiting Egypt soon.

Pyramids, Petra, Promised Land - 19 Days

We toured for 23 days through Egypt, Jordan and Israel. The tour was well structured - a great itinerary and great/good guides. Our guide in Egypt Mahmoud Ramadan as excellent. He is the main reason I would recommend OnTheGo Tours. This is my fifth trip overseas and I have had countless short tour guides. He is the best! You want to request him if touring with On The Go in Egypt.

I also thoroughly enjoyed my time in Jordan. I was looking forward to Petra but was surprised by how much I loved Wadi Rum, Wadi Mujib and the Dead Sea. This was such a varied experience and a great time. We added a few days at the beginning in Cairo and a few days at the end in Tel Aviv which I would definitely recommend. Overall this was a great trip.

On The Go took very good care of us from meeting us at the airport to the transfer to the airport at the end. Great Service.

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. Your tour guide will be able to tell you all about these legendary sites, as well as show you the best places to take photos.

Nile felucca cruise VS Luxury River Nile cruise

Many of our Egypt trips include a 2-night felucca cruise, a felucca being a traditional Egyptian sailing boat. Or you will have the option of upgrading to a 3-night luxury cruise on the Nile River. Which should you choose for your Egypt tour? There are some similarities - you'll see all the same riverside temples and sites. So it's down to you to choose which experience best suits you...

Felucca cruise - An Outdoor Adventure

Travelling by felucca is an authentic adventure and a great dose of genuine Egyptian culture. By day you'll lounge on comfortable cushions, jump in the Nile River for a swim and eat delicious food prepared by your onboard crew. By night you'll sleep on the same cushions, with curtains drawn around you to keep out the elements. Feluccas have a toilet onboard and are accompanied by a support boat for eating, showering, and socializing. The food is basic but hearty, and there's plenty of it. Find out more with our guide to felucca sailing.

Nile cruising - A Touch of Class

If you choose to upgrade to a Nile cruise, then you'll spend three nights in 5-star luxury, with one less night in the hotel at Aswan. Cabins are comfortable, with floor-to-ceiling windows for those stunning Nile-side views. You get lots of amenities, including air-conditioning, TV and mini-bar. And there's a sun deck and plunge pool to enjoy while you sail. Food is served buffet style aboard the luxury cruise, with a variety of local and international cuisine on offer. Find out more with our guide to Nile cruising.

Combine Egypt with Jordan, Israel or Turkey

Discover the remarkable history and incredible sights of Egypt, from the mighty pyramids to the awe-inspiring temples of Abu Simbel. Then why not continue to neighbouring Jordan for the Lost City of Petra or Israel for its many important religious sites? Alternatively, you could combine with Turkey for natural wonders and Roman ruins.

The Best of Egypt

Egypt is packed to the rafters with unmissable highlights. From the legendary pyramids to the Valley of the Kings and the beaches of Hurghada, here are our highlights.

Valley of the Kings

More than 60 pharaohs were entombed here, including the Boy King Tutankhamun. Decorated in hieroglyphs with cavernous burial chambers and secret passages, delve into the tombs of ancient kings.


One of the largest temple complexes in the ancient world, Karnak was built over centuries, as one pharaoh after another added their own mark. From the towering columns of Hypostyle Hall to the incredible Avenue of the Sphinxes, you won't want to miss it.

King Tut Exhibit, Egyptian Museum

Discovered intact in 1922 by Howard Carter, the Tomb of Tutankhamun is possibly one of the most dazzling archaeological finds ever.
