Egypt holidays

Ancient monuments, bustling souks, captivating river cruises and spectacular diving opportunities.

Bustling ancient cities, bucket-list monuments, fascinating Nile cruises and beaches that are perfect for deep-sea diving – holidays to Egypt offer the finest in exploration, recreation and relaxation. Witness the majestic Pyramids of Giza; explore the banks of one of the world’s most famous rivers; wander through the Valleys of the Kings and or simply kick back in a peaceful beach resort. And, as Egypt is reachable in less than six hours – it’s a great choice for both long and short stays.

  • Enchanting cities contrasting with decadent beach escapes – Egypt makes for an excellent twin-centre holiday.
  • Experience the very best of Egypt in comfort and style on a Nile cruise, stopping at popular sites such as Aswan’s High Dam.
  • There’s so much more than simply sightseeing - after visiting the world-famous Pyramids of Giza, head to one of many rooftop cafés to watch the crowds pass by and sip a traditional cup of mint tea.
  • Diving and snorkelling amongst colourful coral reefs is a must in the popular beach resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
  • Relax, unwind and take the time to understand Nubian cultures in the peaceful seaside resort of Hurghada.

From the cradle of civilisation to one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, Egypt has always held an important role in our consciousness.

Despite the traffic or the modern hotel setting, I can watch the sun set over the mighty Nile and can almost be transported back in time - a truly humbling experience.
