More about Egypt Discover Egypt

Sure, you've seen photos of the pyramids and watched The Mummy movie, but nothing you can read or view will prepare you for the real-life thrill of experiencing Egypt! Egypt connects North Africa with the Middle East, but it feels like a world of its own. Of course, it's all about the historic monuments. From the colossal Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, to Luxor's rich Karnak Temple and the mind-blowing Valley of the Kings. Cairo is the capital city and the first thing you should allow time for is visiting the Egyptian Museum. It's the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East and houses the world's most impressive collection of Pharaonic antiquities. Many travellers regret not spending longer here, so make sure you put this high on your list. The second must-do experience is wandering around Khan El-Khalili. This 14th century market is a complete attack on the senses and bold introduction to Egyptian life. As well as being a thriving shopping area - selling everything from silverware and antiques, to spices, incense and souvenirs - it's a hub of cafes that serve traditional Egyptian food, a cultural melting pot and chaotic shapshot of medieval Cairo meeting modern day Egypt. You're also not far from Al-Hussein Mosque and Al-Azhar market.
Tick off the bucket-list destination of Egypt and uncover the rich history that lies along the banks of the Nile. This incredible tour includes highlights in Cairo, Aswan, Edfu, Luxor, Dahab, and more. Stay in 4- and 5-star hotels, enjoy the comforts of a 5-star Nile River cruise and you'll be escorted by Egyptologist guides.
