Escorted tours of Egypt

Take a holiday to Egypt and discover the secrets of the pyramids as you travel to the ancient Land of the Pharaohs.

Located in North Africa, linking the continent with the Middle East and bordering Israel, Libya, and Sudan, Egypt has one of the longest, richest and best-known histories in the world. Stretching from the vast Sahara Desert to the winding Nile River, Egypt is a land of archeological wonders, vast landscapes, glorious beaches and captivating history.

The Egyptian capital, Cairo is Africa’s largest city, filled with a buzzing atmosphere and steeped in history. Discover Cairo’s treasures, from the world-famous Pyramids and ancient tombs, medieval markets and citadels, to the collections at the stunning Egyptian Museum and wonderous mosques. Visitors to this incredible city will experience a holiday like no other.

A little way outside Cairo you’ll find Giza, and a collection the most iconic ancient wonders of the world – the Pyramids and the ever-enigmatic Sphinx. Further south, the ancient site of Saqqara is the location of the oldest pyramid in the world, the famous Step Pyramid of Djoser (or Zoser) and served as a burial site for over 3,500 years. Other highlights here include the new Imhotep Museum, and the astonishingly preserved tomb of an Egyptian court official – the Mastaba of Ti.

One of the highlights of any Egypt tour is the chance to cruise along the tranquil Nile, passing through a landscape that has stood the test of time, where fishermen still sail traditional feluccas across the river and locals come to its banks to do their washing. As you make your way up (or down) stream, there’ll be opportunities to visit Luxor Temple, see the staggering Temple of Karnak, where its gigantic pillars tower over mesmerized visitors, explore the Valley of the Kings on the Nile’s West Bank, and perhaps even stand atop the vast Aswan High Dam which controls the flow of water from Lake Nasser into the Nile.
