Experience the true wonders of Egypt – its monumental temples and tombs, its bustling cities and a captivating riverside way of life little changed in centuries.
Egypt is world-renowned for its towering pyramids, ancient secrets and hidden tombs. Today, thousands of tourists are still enchanted by the ancient mysteries, crumbling ruins and peeling hieroglyphics that still adorn the tomb walls. Even if you are not a history buff you can still enjoy luxurious hotels, wind-whipped sand dunes, stunning sunsets over the Nile, bustling souks and hot springs.
For a historical visit to Egypt, you can’t miss the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, where Tutankhamun’s tomb was found. Discover the awe-inspiring Pyramids of Giza – one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Then visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, take a cruise on the Nile – the longest river in the world – to visit Dendera, Edfu or one of the other waterside temples. Discover Ramses II’s masterpiece at Abu Simbel, or venture into the blistering desert to find the ruins of Roman trading outposts.
With coral reefs teeming with fish, you can explore Egypt underwater as enjoyably as on land. Why not take a dune buggy ride over sand dunes, a diving course in one of the world’s best diving spots or even a dip in a stunning hot spring in the Siwa Oasis, not far from the Libyan border.
