Egypt Holidays

Egypt is the land that gave birth to the first great civilisations. Cairo, Luxor, and the path of the Nile are like open-air museums waiting for you to tour. In Cairo, encounter the past as you stand between the giant paws of the Sphinx of Giza, the last surviving member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Nowhere else on Earth can compete with Egypt's evocative history, palaces, temples, and tombs.

Journeys don't come more relaxing or romantic than cruising down the River Nile. Blending old world grandeur with modern on-board facilities, Nile cruises are the most laid back way to see Egypt.  Discover by day, with stops to Luxor, Aswan, and Cairo. Travel past traditional felucca boats and watch the sun rise and set over this legendary river.   

Egypt holidays are a firm favourite for anyone looking for the awe-inspiring wonders of the ancient world. Palaces, temples, and tombs are just a few of the reasons to set your sights on exploring the mystical land of the Pharaohs.  All of this, along with the fabulous beaches and world-class dive sites on the Red Sea Riviera, guarantee that a holiday to Egypt offers something for everyone.
