Holidays to Egypt
It’s a land of legends, with a history that spans thousands of years – but also a palpable sense of humanity. You’re walking in the footsteps of pharaohs; and pondering the same questions that have befuddled visitors for millennia: how did this ancient civilisation create something so mighty, so magnificent – then collapse into obscurity?
Wonders aplenty, yes, but countless mysteries to discover too. The perfect recipe for an enriching, enlightening break.
Travelling with a knowledgeable guide will really bring Egypt’s history and heritage alive
Where to go
Wherever you go, whatever you do, Egypt is the kind of place where it really pays to book through a reputable tour operator. Not only do you have the benefit of on-the-ground assistance and local expertise, but travelling with a knowledgeable guide will really bring Egypt’s history and heritage alive.
No Egypt holiday is complete without a visit to Giza’s Great Pyramid and Sphinx – as well as the temples of Abu Simbel, the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, and a Nile River cruise.
When to go
Avoid the summer months, when Egypt can be unbearably hot: it’s best to visit between October and April when temperatures are cooler. Ramadan brings quieter days and shorter opening hours, though visitors are not expected to fast.
