Holidays to Egypt - General Information

Such a wealth of places to see and visit exist in Egypt and with many of the sites of antiquites spread out down the length of the River Nile, it is often necessary to travel almost the entire length of the country depending on your interests and which particular monuments you would like to visit on your Egypt holiday.

To get the most out of your holiday to Egypt, we would recommend taking one of our guided tours or Nile Cruise holidays.

A holiday to Egypt isn't just all about history, however. Many people visit this wonderfully exciting country for holiday leisure pursuits such as scuba diving, quad biking, or just for a relaxing holiday by the shores of the Red Sea.

It is also possible to have a combination of history and leisure during your Egypt holiday and many people will choose to visit the sites of antiquites and museums for one part of their holiday to Egypt and spend the other part relaxing or pursuing leisure activities.

With this in mind, we have put together a range of guided tour packages that cover a wide variety of places in Egypt and include visits to Cairo, Luxor, Alexandria, Aswan and Nile Cruises. Whatever your holiday interests, we are sure one of our Egypt Holiday packages will suit you.

If you can't find something that is just what you are looking for, then why not contact us using the Booking Enquiry form and let us know what type of Egypt holiday you are looking for.

With our close contacts in Egypt, we are able to quickly put together bespoke Egypt holiday packages that will suit your every need and indulge your every wish.

HOLIDAYS IN CAIRO

Cairo, the capital of Egypt, has been described as the city with a thousand minarets. This city - the crossroads of the ancient world - is where old and modern meet in a seething populace that makes Cairo the original city that never sleeps.

From Cairo you will be able to visit the Pyramids of Giza - The Great Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramids of Khafra and Menkaura, the Giza Necropolis and the Majestic Sphinx with its unwavering gaze towards the sunrises of the last four and a half thousand years.

The Egyptian Museum at Cairo is a must on any Egypt holiday, even if you only see Tutankhamen's treasure. Then see history brought to life at the Pharaonic Village, where actors perform scenes from everyday life in a setting provided by reproductions of ancient monuments, buildings and tombs.

The Pyramid Complex of Djoser is just a short journey away at Sakkara and you can see some of the earliest buildings ever constructed from stone, including the Stepped Pyramid designed by the famous architect - Imhotep.

HOLIDAYS IN LUXOR

Thebes - The City of a Hundred Gates - was the ancient capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom. Today the city carries the name of Luxor and here you can see on the East Bank, inscribed into the walls of Karnak and Luxor Temples, how the Pharaohs lived their lives in service to the gods. Then visit the West Bank and the Valley of the Kings to see how their tombs were prepared to ensure their immortality in the afterlife.

You should also visit the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut and the gigantic Colossi of Memnon. Whilst on the West Bank you can visit the Tombs of the Nobles, the Valley of the Queens, Medinet Habu Temple of Ramesis III, and choose from a whole host of other tombs, temples and sites of antiquities to satisfy your quest for adventure and history.

Luxor life passes by at a far more sedate pace than Cairo and after your visits you can relax as you watch life go by, virtually unchanged since Pharaonic times. No visit to Luxor would be complete, however, without a hot-air balloon ride at dawn over the Great Theban Necropolis.

NILE CRUISE HOLIDAYS

A Nile River Cruise during your Egypt holiday can be a memorable experience. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, surrounded by the luxuries and comforts offered by the big Nile Cruise ships that provide the Luxury Nile River Cruises floating hotels. Spacious rooms, modern amenities and lip smacking gourmet…it will indeed be a trip to remember.

The Nile River Cruises are available all year round, but in mid April, locks on the Nile are shut because of water levels. The best time to go on a Nile cruise is October to March when all the locks are open and the weather is nice and cool.

RED SEA RESORTS

To truly experience all that Egypt has to offer we have made available a number of multi-centre holiday packages. Typically, a multi-centre holiday in Egypt will offer visits to Cairo and Luxor and also include an extended excursion to the Red Sea area. (Details of the Cairo and Luxor itineraries can be found under the respective sections).

For the holiday adventurer who is looking for something different, then the Egypt Holiday Resorts can offer you every type of water sports imaginable. Or, if relaxing by the beach is your idea of a holiday then you can find no better. The Red Sea provides some of the best areas in the Northern Hemisphere to see marine life in its unspoilt envirnment. You can take part in Scuba Diving, Snorkelling or just enjoy the incredible beauty as you gaze in wonder from a glass bottomed boat.

For the young and the young at heart, you can party the night away in one of the many clubs and night spots that line the main thoroughfares or enjoy a quiet drink in a beach-front bar and watch the moon rise over the Sea.

If action is your thing then look no further than a five hour quad-bike safari that takes you into the Eastern Desert to enjoy a Bedouin barbeque and camel ride.

An Egypt Holiday at one of the resorts provides a wealth of restaurants, clubs and bars that range from the all night raves to having a quite drink and a meal whilst watching the moon rise over the Red Sea.

Whether you take a Nile Cruise for your Egypt holiday or a Guided Tour of the Pyramids at Cairo, you're guaranteed to be amazed by the vast range of monuments and sites to explore in Egypt. We look forward to welcoming you with one of our Egypt Holiday packages, an Egypt Guided Tour or Nile Cruise.
