Egypt Uncovered specialises in private, tailor-made, small-group, and family holidays in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and Sudan. Small group tours are a great way to discover the culture and history of a country at a good price and with other like-minded travellers. We like to keep our tour groups small to ensure that our guides can deliver a high quality personal service so that you get the most out of your tour. Some group tours in Israel may have slightly larger maximum group sizes to keep the tours accessible to people with lower budgets. Minimum group sizes for nearly all group tours are just 2.
Our policy at Egypt Uncovered is to use only local guides and tour leaders for our small group tours wherever possible, as we feel that this not only contributes to the local economy but also provides you with the best local knowledge available. We feel that local guides who have lived and worked in their own country for many years are better 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, many with degrees in Egyptology or other historical subjects, have a high level of English, and are experienced in dealing with western clients. Many of our guides have been working with us for well over ten years and our clients often describe their tour guide as being one of the highlights of their holiday.
All of the small group tours on this website have regular departures starting on set dates throughout the year, and all can also be run privately or used as a base for a tailor-made tour if you prefer.

We had a wonderful time in Egypt and made some great friends while we were there! Our only concern was that everyone got food poisoning at the end of the trip so food hygiene standards may need to be addressed at places the tour visits. Our guide Maghed was the best! He became a genuine friend.
The time spent with the locals was the most enjoyable portion of the trip. I feel there was entirely too much packed into a short amount of time. The vacation felt more like a school trip as opposed to a vacation. I did not enjoy the 4-5am wake-up calls and obligations during vacation.
With all we did and the amount of travel, I was shocked at how cost effective the tour company made it. You get your money's worth after you think about busses, felucca sailboat, overnight train, hotel rooms, and the amazing tour guide.
Fantastic tours and guides with good knowledge - the holiday does go at a pace however, to get everything in - no lie-ins if you really want to see everything! Egypt is a place I wouldn't really want to negotiate/navigate through on my own - Egypt Uncovered saved a LOT of time and stress.
This tour is incredible - we saw all the major sights in Cairo, Aswan, and Luxor, and enjoyed several days at the Jaz Makadi Resort in Hurghada. The tour is arranged more or less chronologically and you have the same guide the entire time, so you really get a great experience following the cultural/religious/political development of ancient Egypt over several thousand years.
Our video features aim to bring our adventure tours to life in a way that no photo can, giving you a great taste of the destination.
