You don’t have to look far to see Egypt’s appeal. It has a rich Pharaonic history and plenty of iconic landmarks, not to mention Greek, Roman, and Islamic influences to awaken your inner explorer. Marvel at iconic pyramids in Giza or haggle at the bustling bazaars in chaotic Cairo. Egypt is a living museum and a land packed with amazing attractions.
But, Egypt offers much more than just stepping back into history in its ancient tombs and pyramids.
Watch the changing landscapes while on a Nile cruise or scuba dive in the Red Sea. Modern coastal holiday resorts offer some of the best diving in the world. Laze on the sun-drenched sand and feast on falafel and baba ganoush. Soak up the endless desert dotted with oases of palm trees.
A holiday in Egypt is a time-travelling journey through centuries of heritage, culture and changing landscapes.

Cruise the Nile
Step back a millennium or three while cruising on the Nile River, arguably the world’s most famous waterway. Memories of Cleopatra and her comrades, and age-old characters from the Bible will flood your mind as you chug gently along the ancient, life-giving waterway. Travelling from Aswan to Luxor is a bucket list experience for visitors, be it on a luxury cruise ship or a felucca. Cruise past temples and pyramids straight out of the history books, past the Valley of the Kings and the treasures of Aswan.
Dive in at the Water’s Edge
Dive into the delights of Egypt beyond the desert sands. Go by jeep, or camel, from Dahab to the Sinai Peninsula and explore the coral-lined inky blue diving sinkhole known as the Blue Hole. You never know what you might discover below the surface! Maximum depth is just over 100metres.
Try Sandboarding in the Desert
If you’re into surfing or snowboarding, sandboarding could be your next favourite thing. Grab a board and get ready to slip and slide over the endless, sun-warmed sea of desert dunes. Learn the ins and outs of sandboarding from the experts and master some techniques along the way as you appreciate the desert’s beauty from a different, adrenalin-rushing perspective.
