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, and also extending into Jordan and Syria. 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: We are delighted to be able to run tours throughout nearly the whole of Egypt again following updated UK Foreign Office advice. Some restrictions remain however, including travel between Cairo and Luxor (which needs to be done by flight or coach via Hurghada instead of by train), and travel between Cairo and Dahab/Sharm-el-Sheikh (which needs to be done by flight instead of by road). Some provinces in the Nile Valley between Cairo and Luxor are also out of bounds but these are little visited by tourists and are only featured on one or two of our tours).

We take responsible travel very seriously, and design and run our tours in as sustainable and responsible fashion as possible, while still giving you the holiday experience you are looking for. We are also very committed to supporting the local people in Egypt, Jordan and Syria who make these tours possible and try to ensure as much benefit from our trips stays in country as we can.
We have many people asking us at the moment whether Egypt is a safe place to visit. We are currently operating a rolling program of cancellations and contacting all travellers due to visit Egypt in the next few months. Bookings are being taken for 2014 though we advise against booking flights at this stage. For a more detailed review, read on...

"Thanks for organising such a great trip for us! We all had an amazing time and it really opened our eyes to the country, both ancient and modern. Our guide, Emad Hussain was wonderful – very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and willing to put up with four archaeologists (including one Egyptologist) for the 12 days. I’m just downloading my 1200-odd photos now..."
