Large luxury traditional Egyptian dahabeya river boat sailing on the Nile

Extraordinary  Egypttours

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 on a sleek, modern ship, step back in time aboard a traditional Egyptian dahabiya 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. Holiday highlights include the Valley of the Kings, the double temple of Kom Ombo and the island Temple of Philae.

What are the best places to visit in Egypt?

Must-see sights in Egypt include the Pyramids of Giza, the Temple of Luxor, the Temple of Karnak and of course the spectacular Valley of the Kings. All our escorted tours in Egypt include a package of handpicked excursions to key sights, although these do vary between itineraries.

More information about Egypt

Our Egypt package holidays give you the choice of enjoying a laid-back river cruise along the Nile, or combining a cruise with a few days of sightseeing around Cairo and Alexandria. To help you make the most of your time in Egypt, excursions are included to the big-name sights (including the Valley of Kings and Queens, the Aswan High Dam, the Temple of Karnak and, on our longer holiday, the pyramids).

A Titan tour manager will accompany you throughout the trip, and you’ll also enjoy the expertise of an Egyptologist tour guide, who’ll give you incredible insight into the places you’ll be exploring.

As with all of our holidays, VIP door-to-door transfers are included, while ATOL protection offers extra peace of mind, too.

Egypt is one of the world’s must-see destinations, and visiting on an escorted tour is one of the safest ways to holiday to experience this extraordinary country and its ancient treasures. We plan our tours very carefully to avoid unsafe areas and we constantly check government travel advice in case things change. However just as you would in many other parts of the world, we recommend you take precautions and are wary of pickpocketing, especially in busy areas. Make sure your bag has a secure zip and wear it across your body, and avoid walking alone at night or going into areas not recommended by your tour manager.

Although Modern Standard Arabic is the official language in Egypt, the vast majority of Egyptians speak Egyptian Arabic. English is also widely spoken, especially in the main tourist areas.

The local currency in Egypt is the Egyptian pound (EGP). One Egyptian pound is made up of 100 piastres – the smallest denominations are 25 and 50 piastres. Egyptian pound notes come in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 50, 100 and 200. Small notes are especially useful for tipping on locally guided tours. 

Egypt enjoys sunshine all-year round, which makes it an ideal choice for a winter sunshine holiday. Travelling between October and April promises warm daytime temperatures and cooler nights, making it more comfortable for sleeping. Summers are hot in Egypt - temperatures can reach the high 30soC, and although January is the coolest month, temperatures average at a pleasant 22oC. Although we’ve based our advice on the typical climate for Egypt, it’s always a good idea to check a reliable weather forecast website before you travel.

We recommend you drink bottled water during your Egypt touring holiday, and when out and about on guided tours. Also avoid ordering soft drinks and alcoholic beverages with ice, as this is often made with tap water. Bottled water is widely available throughout Egypt.

There is a very low risk of malaria in Egypt, but we suggest you take some simple measures to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes during your tour. These include using a good insect and mosquito repellent (one that contains DEET) and wearing long sleeved clothing and long trousers, especially in the evenings when mosquitos are most active. 

Flight time from London to Cairo is approximately 4 hours 50 minutes.
