Egypt Vacation

With a magnificent coastline and captivating history, Egypt tours contain something for everyone. Voyage back in time to the emergence of civilization and the sites of monuments featured as one of the seven wonders of the world. Egypt, a land that links northeast Africa with the Middle East, is home to the great pyramid of Giza, the great Sphinx, tombstones of iconic pharaoh’s, and massive temples stretched across the Nile River. An Egypt holiday will educate and fascinate travelers with the stories behind the ancient pyramids, the complex history of Egypt’s religions and the stories behind some of the world’s most iconic people. The nation’s capital, Cairo, is a historical hotspot. Aside from the remarkable wonders of the pyramids, travelers can marvel over the Egyptian Antique Museum and stroll the downtown area, which is an architectural relic itself. For a more laid-back atmosphere, travelers can enjoy dinner with the stunning views of the Nile at the forefront. Continuing along the journey, you can travel over to the city Hurghada for some relaxation on the shores of the Red Sea or snorkel the underwater world of the coral reefs.

Egypt Tours

Visit Cairo
When beginning the unforgettable journey through a round-trip Egypt travel, the nation’s capital is the ideal spot to start. Tours of Cairo will leave your head spinning with 4000 years’ worth of historical lessons gained. The sheer magnitude of stories told by the architecture located here, will leave you speechless. The Egyptian pyramids of Giza, located in a town that sits conveniently inside Cairo's boundaries, are an absolute must-see on your stay in Cairo. Marvel at the gargantuan pyramids and be inspired by this inconceivable structure and feat as you enter to learn more about the history behind them and the reasons behind their popularity. The awe-inspiring pyramids are the one last remaining survivor out of the seven ancient wonders of the world.

To complete an authentic trip to Egypt, hop on one of the many camel transports offered at the pyramids. Ride through the Sahara Desert to the Sphinx of Giza, the notorious large limestone carving of a sphinx (half lion, half human).

When your tours of the mystifying tombs and pyramids are over, relax and unwind by boat, or cruising the iconic Nile River. Egypt travel packages offer you an unforgettable journey cruising along the Nile from Cairo, through Aswan and end in the provincial town of Luxor. Along with your cruise, you will pass by ancient settlements, riverside temples, and sleep under a starry night with the cool Egypt air whistling Pharaonic tales.

 

Visit Luxor

The splendor of ancient Egypt travel is exhibited in the open-air museum of Luxor, a beguiling historic center showcasing some of the world's most incomparable archaeological heritage. Tours of the Valley of the Kings explore the true discovery of the famous tomb of Tutankhamun. The mummification temple and Luxor temple are equally as striking and insightful.

When you're not out on a quest to find the ancient tombs, Luxor is bustling with modern day hotels and restaurants to relax and slowly ease you back into reality after your enchanting tours through history.
 

Visit the beach  
For the beach lovers out there, access to the Mediterranean Sea to the north and Red Sea on the east coast make Egypt travel the ideal choice for a relaxation-seekers beach holidays. Additionally, the coral reefs off of the Egyptian coastline attracts thousands of diving and snorkeling enthusiasts due to the rich amount of sea-life, offering a multicolored spectacle. Sharm el-Sheikh is a coastal town on the red sea that typifies the prolific beach holidays in Egypt.

Best time of the year to visit Egypt?

Often unbearable in the summer months of July-August, tourists often decide to go on tours during the milder months nearer to Christmas. On the coasts, however, tourism is booming all year round apart from the winter months.

It really depends where you want to go, with anywhere in the south of Egypt being very hot all year, whereas the Mediterranean can reach colder figures from November-February.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Egypt

Ancient Egypt has intrigued historians and tourists for hundreds of years. The splendor of ancient Egypt is exhibited in the open-air museum of Luxor, a beguiling historic center showcasing some of the world's most incomparable archaeological heritage. Tours of the Valley of the Kings explore the true discovery of the famous tomb of Tutankhamun. The mummification temple and Luxor temple are equally as striking and insightful.

When you're not out on a quest to find the ancient tombs, the provincial town of Luxor is bustling with modern day hotels and restaurants to relax and slowly ease you back into reality after your magical tours through history.

Tours of Cairo will leave your head spinning with 4000 years worth of history lessons gained. Perhaps only Greece can rival it for the sheer magnitude of stories told by the architecture found here. The Egyptian pyramids of Giza (a town that sits conveniently inside Cairo's boundaries) are mandatory on your stay in Cairo (need it be stated). Marvel at the gargantuan pyramids and be inspired by this inconceivable structure and feat as you enter to learn more about the history behind them and the reason they are so popular. The awe-inspiring pyramids are the one last remaining survivor out of the seven ancient wonders of the world.

Nearby to the Great Pyramids lies the imperative visit to the Sphinx of Giza, the large limestone carving of a sphinx (half lion, half human).

When your tours of the mystifying tombs and pyramids are over, relax and unwind in one of many quirky hotels or guesthouses by puffing on the ubiquitous sheesha.

Travel is a key step and main tourist attraction on Egypt tours. The two fundamental forms of travel in Egypt are by boat, cruising the river Nile and stopping off at cool riverside temples, and train, a great way to travel long journeys in any part of the world. Of course, Egypt tours also often involve some camel transport, so pack some comfy pants!

But it is tours down the river Nile that excite most adventure travelers, passing by ancient settlements via the worlds most iconic river, and sleeping under a starry night with the cool Egypt air whistling Pharaonic tales. Tours of the Nile are a truly unforgettable experience.

For the beach lovers out there, with access to the Mediterranean Sea to the north and Red Sea on the east coast, Egypt is spoiled for choice when it comes to relaxing beach holidays. Additionally, the coral reefs off of the Egyptian coastline attracts thousands of diving and snorkeling enthusiasts due to the rich amount of sea-life, offering a multicolored spectacle.

Egypt Reviews Of Our Travellers

Alan B., December 2018

Amira expertly coordinated a somewhat complicated schedule having numerous destinations and multiple travelers from several locations joining the tour a different times! Amira was patient and professional as it took over 80 emails to agree upon a final itinerary. We were so impressed with her skills that we insisted upon meeting her during our stay in Cairo to personally thank her for her services.

We visited the following sites over 20 days in Egypt, Jordan and Israel: Cairo Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Saqqara, Egyptian Museum, Citadel with Mohamed Ali Mosque, Old Cairo, Abu Simbel, Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor, High Dam, Temple of Philae, Nubian Village, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Esna, Luxor, Luxor Hot Air Balloon, West Bank (Valley of Kings, Hatshepsut and Memmon temple), East Bank (Karnak & Luxor temples); Jordan: Jerash, Ajlun, Madaba, Mt. Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea; Israel/Palestine: Jerusalem Old and New City tours, Bethlehem, Tel Aviv, and Jaffa.

Our guides and drivers were personable and attentive especially to the needs of two travelers with mobility issues. The guides were punctual and masters of all related subjects.

Although we paid trip.me $140 each for the VIP crossing from Jordan to Israel at the Allenby Bridge, it still seemed a bit confusing especially when asked to pay an additional 15 JD each for the Jordanian departure tax even though Amira told us to expect this.

Only one disappointment: We opted out of the Pyramids Light Show for a dinner near the Pyramids, which was overpriced ($45 each) and mediocre with poor service.

I can't thank Amira enough. From the moment I contacted her she has been amazing. Amira tailor made the holiday for me and every aspect was perfect. She answered all of my questions and gave advice to make my holiday perfect. I was very impressed with the service. Egypt has been one of my favourite holidays, the sites, hotels, restaurants, guides and transport was outstanding. I would definitely book with trip.me again.

Good planning, few flaws in the execution. Never received detailed itineraries ( sightseeing, regional flights schedules) which caused some confusion.

Janet F., November 2018

We had an absolutely amazing time. Your Egypt experts, from our lovely Amira Geneina, my email contact for almost a year, to our Tour Leader, Ahmed Sayed Mohamed, to our beloved and beyond excellent Egyptologist Alaa Rashwan (who taught us to read some of the simpler Hieroglyphics by the end of our tour)...amazing, also,Amani Rahib, another of our excellent tour guides, and also, the Drivers, Faisal Hussien and Mustafa in Luxor....brilliant!! We all met as strangers, but strangely enough, we left as good friends with whom we shall remain in contact via our Facebook pages. Everything was expertly arranged and organized and we experienced no issues what-so-ever. A dream come true vacation, to say the least, and one that we very well may repeat in the not so distant future. I give everyone involved, a 6 out of 5, that's how impressed we were with the quality and delivery of all the services offered to us during this trip. Everyone, and l mean everyone, bent over backwards to accommodate any and all concerns during our stay. A most amazing trip, only possible because of the wonderful services of such a large group of amazing people. Thank-you all from the bottom of our hearts and hope to see you all again in the not so distant future. Shalom.

Sweet Amira, was the constant, friendly professional, who never tired of my incessant questions, emails or itinerary changes during this last year. She was with us from start to finish and my only regret is that l ran out of time and didn't have the chance to meet and thank her in person. Wonderful, knowledgeable woman. Thank-you so much Amira for all that you did on our behalf.
