Luxury Holidays - Egypt
Whether you’re cruising along the Nile in a luxury vessel, or riding a ‘ship of the desert’ to the Valley of Kings, you’ll realise that Egypt isn’t a country – it’s a treasure house of antiquity.
Despite the fact that it is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, when you walk inside the Great Pyramid at Gisa, you will find yourself whispering.
But Egypt has any number of awe-inspiring sights. The mummy room and the Tutankhamun exhibition in Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, for example, work a kind of solemn magic on your soul. Whilst – far from the crazy, relentlessly energetic streets of Cairo – a slow cruise along the Nile to the temples of Karnak and Luxor will have you imagining yourself not just in the land of the Pharaohs, but in the time of the Pharaohs as well.
A tailor-made holiday to Egypt, created by one of our Egypt experts Nabila Cash, will most likely include an accompanying Egyptologist who will help explain the mysteries, bring the history to life and guide you past Egypt’s very enthusiastic street sellers.
Your tailored itinerary could well include the inspirational son et lumière at Philae – the Temple of Isis standing on Agilkia Island in the middle of the Nile. Or a day in the Valley of Kings, and the neighbouring Valley of Queens.
The Red Sea is well-known for its fantastic sealife and is sure not to dispappoint even the most avid of divers.
Talk to Laura or Nabila – they'll turn you into an Egypt enthusiast.
Given the political sensitivity and unrest in Egypt we do advise you to check The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) travel advice for up-to-date information.
