This tour combines time in Cairo and Luxor visiting these sites with a few days by the Red Sea to give you a taste of everything Egypt has to offer. Read more

Customer feedback

"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..."
