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.

Food and Culture of Egypt

Not exactly known for their food, Egypt still manages to surprise visitors with its diverse cuisine. Many wholesome soups traced back to Pharaonic days still satisfy stomachs around the country, Ful Medames (lava beans and herbs) being one staple Egyptian dish to endure, another being Kushari, regarded as the national dish, which contains 4 carbohydrates in it making it a popular lunch option.

It is the compelling and enchanting history that really beckons people to pack their bags and embark on tours of Egypt, with ancient Egypt being at the core of all tourists motives.

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

Neil M., February 2019

Your guides and drivers were exceptional, Especially Nassar in Jordan - superb, and Mohammad on the Nile trip - excellent

Samantha S., February 2019

Through ‘trip Me’, we discovered Amira.
Our go-to girl, Amira, designed the perfect package that catered to our requests with a perfectly customized itinerary.
The team coordinators worked together to ensure seamlessly and stress-free transfers.
First guide Terek with driver Mohammed.

Cairo
I would highly recommend Tarek Tito as your guide fir Cairo. An amazing amount of knowledge with a super relaxed character. Tarek seemed to know everyone in Cairo. We thoroughly enjoyed our two days with Tarek and our driver Mohammed Khodary.

Aswan/Luxor
Ahmed El Prince was our Indiana Jones of Aswan and Luxor.
Ahmeds enthusiastic delivery of information at each temple was very enjoyable. He also allowed us plenty of time by ourselves to take photos and just enjoy the environment. Ahmed went out of his way to help us in anyway possible.

Islam our ground staff manager, arranged all transportation.
Islam is a very friendly and professional man, who consistently answered our questions promptly via phone / message.

The local staff are awesome!

Thank you all so much for making our trip to Egypt so memorable!

High lights
Guided Camel ride around the Pyramids of Giza. Suggested and organised by Tarek on the day we visited the Pyramids. For only an extra 20 USD it was truly amazing.

Hot air ballooning over the Valley of the Kings and the city of Luxor.
Early start to the day but well worth it. Recommended by Ahmed.
100 USD again this was a highlight and worth every penny.
Thanks to Bob and his team from
Miracle Ballooning

Much love and thanks

Nothing was too much trouble, As this was my first time using trip.me I had a lot of questions but Amira our agent with trip.me answered all of them. I have to say Amira was an absolute Star.

Deb Jenkins, January 2019

Amira was great . She was always in touch answering my many questions even with the delayed time difference. Mohommad was also very efficient and helpful.
Cairo great accommodation at Kempinsji Hotel .Our Guide was Emad who was fantastic . He was very knowledgeable and had great explanations to our many questions. We asked to have him again in Alexandria when we returned 2 weeks later.
Aswan was fabulous- transfers and air flights were all good. The Old Cataract was great. Abel Simbel was outstanding but this guide (older man) Mohammed was very rushed couldn't wait to get us back to the airport where we then waited for 2 hours for the plane. Other groups arrived an hour later!!! He didn't even explain about Ramese 11 wife's tomb until we had come out!
Nile Cruise was very good Sonesta Moon Goddess with a balcony was extremely pleasant! Unfortunately, our Guide from Aswan to Luxor was very unprofessional. He travelled with us from Aswan to Luxor so took us around Edfu and Kom ombo Temples. He just pointed and roughly said these are the things to look for and said 'I'll see you in the coffee shop'- he was always rushing us to get back to the boat..... but we were always the first ones back by a good 3/4of an hour..Other people on the boat were always in contact with their guide we could see their guides talking about the Nile, the Locks etcetc. we did not have any communication from our guide on the boat except when we had to meet him to go on shore. When we arrived in Luxor we did the Valley of the tombs- Guides are not allowed in these tombs... but when we went to Hatshepsut's temple we specifically asked him TWICE to walk with us through the temple saying that other people who have a private guide are with their guide!!.... he was allowed here!. He said 'Ive told you everything you need to know...' and then said he'll meet us at the coffee shop!!!. We then walked around tagging onto other pairs and trying to listen to their English speaking guide!!
Consequently we cancelled our Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple with him and Amira and they gave us a fabulous knowledgeable Lady Guide who wanted to guide and not just try to do a job. She was a breathe of fresh air!. But when our guide put his hand out for his tip he actually said' make sure you give me a 5 star rating on their site!!!!!
Then back to Emad and Alexandria and then Cairo. On the whole we loved our trip private guide and driver was absolutely fabulous ... there was only 1 major problem and that was the guide as mentioned above.... tall big slightly tanned sand a lovely voice thought he was terrific .... but was a terrible guide!!!!!!!

Thank you Amira and your team everyone else should be commend in helping us experience Egypt at its best. Thank you. Deb Jenkins
