"There are few historical civilisations that capture the imagination quite like the Ancient Egyptians."

Escorted Tours and Holidays in Egypt

Offering everything a travel addict could want and more, Egypt is a fascinating country brimming with iconic marvels, cultural attractions and some of the world’s most remarkable treasures. Whether you want to venture through Cairo, visit the famous pyramids and temples or explore the Valley of the Kings, there’s always an array of exciting wonders to discover on a escorted touring holiday in Egypt. And with so many fantastic escorted tours and day trips to choose from, it’s easy to plan your dream Egypt holiday and make it a reality.

Our Egypt escorted tours will open your eyes to all of the amazing spectacles that this unique country has to offer, as well as its fantastic history and glorious sun-soaked beaches. No matter what you choose to do and see, Egypt is a rewarding holiday destination with the power to captivate and amaze all who visits her.  

Channel your inner Indiana Jones and explore the land of the Pharaohs, where you’ll find the temples of Abu Simbel, the pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx – just three of the biggest draws for visitors to Egypt. You can also experience the captivating and chaotic capital of Cairo, a place that will seduce you with its energy and top sights like the Hanging Church, Al-Azhar Mosque, the Cairo Opera House, the Cairo Citadel and Khan Al-Khalili Bazaar. And no trip to Cairo is complete without a glide down the mighty Nile on a cruise boat, floating restaurant or a relaxing felucca.

During your Egypt holiday, you should also consider a trip to the east bank of the River Nile to the city of Luxor, the world’s greatest open-air museum and home to the Valley of the Kings and its 63 magnificent royal tombs. Luxor boasts many impressive attractions, such as the Temple Complex of Karnak, the Mummification Museum, the Mortuary Temple of Seti I and the Luxor Museum, one of Egypt’s best museums. It’s also where you can find the Valley of the Queens, an ancient burial site of the wives and children of the great pharaohs.

But your Egypt escorted tour options don’t stop there. Situated next to the First Cataract of the Nile, Aswan is an idyllic city and a great place to explore Egypt’s extraordinary history far away from Luxor and the hustle and bustle of Cairo. There are lots of historical and archaeological sites in and around this city, plus you’ll find peaceful villages, some of the best shopping and some wonderful little islands to explore. Another quiet area is Abu Simbel, a sleepy village in the Egyptian part of Nubia that’s famous for its temples carved out of solid rock. There’s also the unusual double Temple of Kom Ombo with its soaring columns, located in Upper Egypt between Aswan and Edfu. Kom Ombo is dedicated to Sobek the local crocodile god and Haros the important falcon god.

If you’re a lover of thrilling watersports, you may want to book an escorted tour that takes you to the dazzling waters of Egypt’s Red Sea coast. With its crystal clear water and colourful aquatic life, the Red Sea is not only one of the world’s best scuba diving spots but it’s also a fabulous place to go to have a try at snorkelling, kiteboarding and even windsurfing.

 

Touring Highlights of Egypt

  • Great Pyramid of Giza: Built nearly 4,000 years ago, the Great Pyramid of Giza is one of Egypt’s must-see attractions and is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World that is still standing today.
  • Great Sphinx of Giza: An Egypt holiday wouldn’t be complete with seeing the iconic Great Sphinx of Giza, an enigmatic mythical creature that stands guard next to Great Pyramid.
  • Capital of Cairo: Home to around 22 million people, Cairo is a city like no other on earth and a place you simply must include on your Egypt escorted tour itinerary. In addition to being the gateway to the pyramids of Giza, Cairo is where you’ll need to go to take a cruise along the Nile, with options ranging from day trips on a traditional felucca to longer voyages between Aswan and Cairo.
  • Luxor: A city that was once the capital of Egypt, Luxor is home to some of the country’s most important archaeological sites, including the Temple of Karnak, the Colossi of Memnon and the Valley of the Queens.
  • The Valley of the Kings: Sculpted from the rock of the Theban Hills, the Valley of the Kings should be on every Egypt holiday bucket list. Situated on Luxor’s West Bank, the Valley of the Kings is the ancient burial ground of numerous pharaohs and is one of the most visited attractions in Egypt.
  • Aswan: A welcoming and relaxing area of Egypt, the southern city of Aswan has a chilled-out vibe and is full of unmissable things to do and see, such as mesmerising temples, delightful boat rides and Nubian villages.
  • Abu Simbel: Famous for its towering rock-hewn temples, Abu Simbel is a quiet town and an important centre of Nubian culture, making it perfect if you want to escape some of the bustle but still explore.
  • Temple of Kom Ombo: Constructed during the Ptolemaic period, the Temple of Kom Ombo overlooks the Nile and is dedicated to the two gods of Sobek and Horus. Over 300 mummified crocodiles were found at Kom Ombo, all of which now reside in the nearby Crocodile Museum.
  • Red Sea Coast: Accessible via the resort towns of Dahab and Sharm El-Sheikh, the Red Sea coast is a fantastic Egypt escorted tour option if you can’t resist water activities like snorkelling and scuba diving. The Red Sea coast is also a great place if you just want to relax and sunbathe right next to the sea.
