From the ancient splendours of Cairo to the natural beauty of the River Nile, our Egypt tours have plenty to offer those looking to get under the skin of this fascinating country. Choose a relaxed river cruise, or combine a cruise with a few days exploring the sights around the capital, Cairo. Whichever option you choose, you’ll be awestruck by Egypt’s rich history and culture.
In the north of the country, you’ll find Cairo, Giza and Alexandria – three destinations that offer an amazing insight into the ancient world. Here, you can gaze up at the incredible Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, look out to where the Lighthouse of Alexandria supposedly once stood, and explore museums filled with treasures from the time of Tutankhamun.
Trace your finger south on the map and you’ll hit Luxor, starting point for cruises on the River Nile – Egypt’s ‘lifeblood’. Journey along this mighty waterway and you’ll enjoy even more insight into Ancient Egypt. Highlights include the Valley of the Kings, the double temple of Kom Ombo and the island Temple of Philae.See All Holidays to Egypt
