Egypt small group tours

Egypt Uncovered specialises in small-group, tailor-made and family holidays in Egypt, Jordan, and when possible, Syria. Small group tours are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture and history of a country, and keeping our tour groups small means we can deliver a personal service which ensures you get the most out of your tour. We therefore set the maximum number of people in our tour groups at 12-18, and the minimum at 2-4.

Nearly all of the Egypt and Jordan tours on this website have regular departures starting on set dates throughout the year, and all can also be run privately if you prefer.

Tour leaders and guides

Our policy at Egypt Uncovered is to use only local guides and tour leaders for our Egypt small group tours, as we feel that this not only contributes to the local economy but also provides you with the best local knowledge available. Local guides are able to provide more information and can bring the history, culture and nature of a country alive in a way that non-native guides cannot.

All of our tour guides are fully trained Egyptologists, have a high level of English, and are experienced in dealing with western clients. Many of our guides have been working with us for years and our clients often describe their tour guide as being one of the highlights of their holiday.

Encounters Travel small group tours

Encounters TravelThrough Encounters Travel, we also operate small-group tours in a wide variety of other countries around the world. Several of our Egypt Uncovered and Encounters Travel tours in Egypt and Jordan run alongside each other.

Private departure dates

Many of our tour itineraries are also available to be run as private departures. These are most suited to couples, groups of friends or families who don’t want to travel with larger groups, or for those who cannot find a convenient group departure date for one of our tours in Egypt.

Small group tours with private departure dates can also be tailor-made to better suit your needs. The added expense of this more personal service usually incurs a small extra charge, the amount extra depending on the season in which you wish to travel and how much you want to change. For more information about private departure dates please contact us.

Customer feedback

"Wow what a fantastic time I had in Dahab. I've dived at several locations around the world and never knew how exciting the Red Sea was. Caverns, canyons and the excellent Blue Hole have made this holiday the best I've been on. Where else can I go?"

Mr. A. Rayson (tailor-made diving tour)
