Egypt cultural adventures

If your idea of a perfect holiday combines culture and adventure then our Egypt adventure holidays are the ones for you. These are some of our most popular Egypt tours, and merge sightseeing around Egypt's most important and historic ancient sites, with some more adventurous activities such as overnight felucca sailboat trips on the Nile. We generally start in Cairo, home of the pyramids, sphinx and Egyptian Museum, and then head into the Nile Valley to explore the ancient Pharaonic sites such as the Valley of the Kings and Karnak temple around Luxor, and the temple of Ramses II at Abu Simbel. A felucca trip sailing down the Nile is one of the highlights of many of these tours, and provides a relaxing and fun way to balance out your sightseeing visits.

Most of our Egypt adventure holidays then come to a close back in Cairo, but your experience doesn't have to end there as you can head into the western deserts, to the Red Sea, or cross into Jordan to extend your adventure.
