Wonders of Egypt

8 days from £1,735 £1,475

Pyramids and pharaohs in Egypt's ancient lands

From the mighty Pyramids to the Valley of the Kings, Egypt isn’t short on star attractions. That said, a visit to this ancient country is as much about the small moments, whether it’s eating dates in the shade of a palm tree, breakfasting on "ful medames" with the locals, or listening to the call of prayer as you watch the sun set over Cairo. Experience Egypt’s bucket list sights alongside its wonderful everyday, on this unforgettable group trip. Gaze into the enigmatic face of the Great Sphinx, explore the treasures of Tutankhamun’s golden tomb, and spend three nights under starry skies on a live-aboard boat cruise down the Nile. This is Egypt.


Highlights include

Pyramids of Giza
The Great Sphinx
Nile cruise
Valley of the Kings
Tutankhamun’s tomb
Colossi of Memnon
Red sea beaches
Egyptian Museum

Accommodation & Meals

Accommodation

All your accommodation is included on this trip, including a comfy hotel with landscaped gardens and outdoor pool in Cairo, and a lovely palm-tree lined, beachside resort with pool in Hurghada. You’ll also spend a night on a sleeper train, and three nights on a live-aboard boat with on-board pool, cruising down the mighty Nile!

The above information is only intended to be used as a guide, giving you a flavour of some of our accommodation providers, and the style of accommodation you may be staying in. Please note that all nights are subject to change.

Lots of our travellers are solo travellers, so when you book with us, we’ll pair you up with a like-minded roommate of the same sex. Our trips are great for couples or friends as well - just let us know you’re together, so we can be sure to put you in the same room.

Meals

7 breakfasts, 3 lunches and 5 dinners are included on this trip. You’ll have the freedom to eat wherever and whenever you like the rest of the time. Egyptian cuisine is a culinary tapestry that weaves together a rich history and diverse flavours. Drawing inspiration from neighbouring Eastern and Middle Eastern countries, Egyptian dishes offer a fusion of tastes and aromas. Veggies will be well looked after with iconic dishes like koshari (a hearty mix of lentils, rice, and pasta) and ful medames (a traditional breakfast dish of slow-cooked fava beans), and meat lovers can indulge in everything from mouth-watering grilled kebabs to aromatic stews like molokhia.
