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 itinerary adjustments may also apply from time to time to our Nile Valley tours, particularly those including overnight train travel between Cairo and Luxor. More information...

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.
Following a significant improvement in the situation on the ground in Egypt and relaxation of official UK Foreign Office advice, we are delighted to be able to run tours throughout most of Egypt at the moment. The majority of our group tour program is running, as well as private & tailor-made options. A few geographical restrictions apply and some minor itinerary adjustments may be required.

"The crew were tops! Very knowledgable and helpful in everything and being so down to earth! the layout of the truck alone puts all other overland trucks to shame. I had comments from people on the other tours and they all said they were very jealous of our truck. i have enjoyed my time immensely... would do it all over again!"
