Adventure holidays in Egypt
In light of political demonstrations in Egypt earlier this year, please be assured that as a responsible tour operator, we are led by the Foreign Office’s advice, and we never sell or send people to destinations where it is not recommended to travel.
The capital city Cairo is often a good starting point, allowing tourists to whet their appetite for adventure tours with a trip to the Egyptian Museum. King Tutankhamen's gold mask is among the artefacts housed here, along with remains of many of the pharaohs. Meanwhile, the Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx, found on the outskirts of the city, are an unmissable part of many people's Egypt holidays. Camel rides and photo opportunities await tourists in an area where history permeates every corner. Those who have been on Egypt tours usually agree that Giza and the Pyramids have a unique atmosphere that is unrivalled anywhere else in the world. These are some of the things that shouldn’t be missed when on holidays in Egypt.
Further afield, Luxor's Valley of the Kings, located close to the River Nile, is another must-see location - this is where more than 60 ancient tombs for the pharaohs have been found over the years. The river itself also deserves serious exploration on an Egypt adventure holiday - a traditional lateen-rigged boat trip starting in Aswan is a great way to travel in style. While it's true that many travellers go on Egypt holidays to soak up its rich history and culture, there is much more to this Middle Eastern country than its Egypt tours, crumbling buildings and camel rides. Those who enjoy making their own hands-on discoveries will welcome the chance to snorkel in the Red Sea and check out its coral reefs on their Egypt holidays. Meanwhile, tourists who opt for a stay in Hurghada can enjoy a traditional beach break, the perfect way to end a couple of weeks of exploration.
Family Holidays in Egypt
Children may learn all about King Tutankhamen through books and videos at school, but Egyptian family holidays are a way to bring the pyramids and the pharaohs to life. When it comes to Egypt holidays for families, there are trips to suit children of all ages, from cultural discovery tours in and around Cairo to beach breaks in Hurghada.
Youngsters are sure to enjoy checking out the mummies at the Egyptian Museum, or the unrivalled sights of Giza and the Pyramids and the Valley of the Kings. Families who decide to incorporate a little rest and relaxation into their break on the Red Sea coast or the River Nile only need the same precautions they'd use on a beach break in the Med - namely, plenty of sun cream and a bucket and spade.
Egypt tours really offer the best of both worlds - a chance to relax while also quenching youngsters' natural thirst for knowledge. We also offer single parent holidays to Egypt.
