Egypt Tours and Holidays

Ancient wonders. Hidden treasures. Endless seas and golden sand. Make lifelong memories on our award-winning Egypt trips.

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 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 in Egypt, we offer a wide range of trips, from our award-winning guided group tours to Tailor-made holidays and unique adventures that take in the Sun Festival at Abu Simbel.

Sherif is an amazing guide who was really knowledgeable and keen to answer our many questions.

His sunny personality brought our group together as a family from day one and we had the most wonderful time exploring the wonders of ancient Egypt with a super group of people.”  

Jackie & Don Drennan • Submitted 22 May 2022

Lovely trip enjoy it very much.”  

Rina Naude • Submitted 12 May 2022

The tour was fabulous and what increased the value was the guide. Sherif was very knowledgeable, kind and truly cared about his group. If someone was separated from the group, he immediately doubled back to be sure all was ok. He was helpful not only at the historic sites but also when we snorkeled. He is a perfect ambassador for Egypt. I will definitely be sending people your way. Nice pace too. Busy day followed by a little less busy day. The venues were fabulous. Great job! ”

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 Egypt holidays have been departing as scheduled ever since the initial travel ban that surrounded the Arab Spring in 2011.

There are rarely any dangerous events in Egypt these days and these are not directed at tourists. 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 some parts of Egypt but that same advice is also applied to Belgium and France. We do not visit anywhere deemed unsafe by the British Foreign Office on our tours.

In other words, Egypt is no less safe 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 on our Egypt holidays, 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.
