FAQs on Egypt Holidays

What is the best way to see Egypt?

Our guided group trips to Egypt are the best way to explore the country, whether you choose to see the country by boat or on foot, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable holiday. Our Nile cruises allow you to sail in style and comfort as you embark on a leisurely tour of some of the most iconic and extraordinary sights, from the ancient temples and tombs to the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings.
Alternatively, when you book one of our cultural Egypt holidays, you can explore places such as Cairo, the Great Pyramids and Aswan on foot. You’ll be transported in between each destination by either minibus, train or felucca.

Are there tours in Egypt?

Our Egypt trips are packed with guided tours that introduce you to the country’s culture, history and ancient sites. Many of these tours are included within the price of your holiday but we also offer optional excursions such as safaris, quad biking and sightseeing tours.

How many days do you need to tour Egypt?

We would suggest you allow a minimum of 9 days when booking Egypt tours as there are so many wonderful sights to discover. This also gives you plenty of time to scratch beneath the surface of each place you visit and become truly immersed in the local culture and history.

How long does it take to see the Pyramids?

Three hours is a good amount of time to spend at the Pyramids of Giza and will give you chance to explore the Giza complex, where you’ll learn about the history of these ancient wonders, walk up to Panoramic Point and visit the Valley Temple.

Is 7 days in Egypt enough?

If you take the travel time into consideration, 7 days won’t feel like enough time to really delve into the country. Although you can see quite a lot in that time, it certainly won’t be enough to see it all. Our Egypt tours range from 9 to 13 days to ensure you get the most out of your holiday.

How far are the pyramids from Cairo?

The pyramids can be found approximately 12 miles from the city of Cairo and all our Egypt trips include transportation via minibus.
