Travel to Egypt

Egypt's history stretches back over 5000 years to the time of the Pharaohs, one of the most exciting and fascinating periods in world history. Today, an incredible amount still remains visible of this ancient time, with a wealth of temples, monuments and excavations available to visit, not least the immense pyramids and sphinx at Gisa on the outskirts of Cairo. Combined with its unique history, Egypt's friendly people, beautiful desert scenery, the mighty River Nile and the marine wonders of the Red Sea, make Egypt a fabulous holiday destination, and one that we love sharing with our travellers.

Our tours to Egypt cover the whole country from jeep safaris in the Western deserts, to Nile cruises and sightseeing in the Nile Valley, and time relaxing and enjoying some snorkelling and scuba-diving by the Red Sea. We offer a range of accommodation options and levels, and also different travel ideas. We run regular small group departures on most of these tours, including some specially geared towards families, and can also run private and tailor-made tours throughout Egypt, also extending into Jordan. We have our own team of Egyptologist guides and local reps in Egypt which we are very proud of, as we know how important a good guide is to your enjoyment of your holiday.

If you'd like to see more of Egypt than just a beach resort, then Egypt Uncovered is the place to start. 

Note: Although we are running all our tours visiting Cairo, the Nile Valley, to the Red Sea resort of Hurghada, and to Alexandria and Siwa Oasis, due to official advice from the UK Foreign Office, we are not operating any tours in the Sinai peninsular or through Egypt's western deserts. Some restrictions and itinerary adjustments may also apply to our Nile Valley tours, particularly those including overnight train travel between Cairo and Luxor. More information...
