I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Egypt desert & culture tour
From
£985
excluding flights
The most memorable parts of the holiday were Camel ride round the Pyramids (you do have to barter hard), Abel Simbel and best of all Valley of the Kings. (more)Jo Carter
The whole holiday has been a dream of mine for 25 years and it more than lived up to expectations. The pyramids, temples and tombs were amazing. The Nile cruise was 10 times better than we expected - lovely staff and surroundings, especially the surprise animals made out of towels on our beds each night! (more)Janice Gould
The whole Egypt holiday was memorable and each part was different and equally exciting. Spent a few days in Cairo seeing the sights - the Pyramids are phenomenal. (more)Irene Ennenga
Egypt tailor made holidays
From
£750
excluding flights
The trip on a Dahabiya "Princess Donia" was the most memorable moment. Floating so gracefully down the Nile in the sanctuary of such a small boat with only 10 passengers and being so graciously cared for by the 9 staff. (more)Caroline Blundell
The most memorable part was sightseeing in Egypt - guided tours in Cairo. (more)Michael Salomon
It was ALL amazing without exception. Sunrise at Abu Simbel, donkey ride overlooking Valley of the Kings, gliding along the Nile in a felucca, King Tut collection in Cairo, camel riding at the pyramids, etc. etc. (more)Belinda Wade
Budget Egypt tour
From
£738
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Getting to see all the wonderful sights, ancient temples and treasures, sailing down the Nile and meeting local families in their homes. Tips? Be prepared for a packed itinerary and early starts. Take a sleeping bag liner for the felucca trip. Local benefits? Yes, we ate twice with local families plus trips were made with local contacts, boat owners and donkey owners! Overall rating? Excellent trip - covered all the highlights in a week (more)Julie Forshaw
Abu Simbel tour, Egypt
From
£530
excluding flights
Everything came together so smoothly - which made the holiday fantastic. 5*, amazing, memorable holiday. (more)Bridget Carr
Everyone was extremely helpful and everything went according to plan - we both enjoyed it very much. (more)Julie Griffiths
Gauging by the reaction of a 18y (son) and a 16y (daughter), the holiday met all expectations for our family. (more)Anthony Ramanathan
Nile cruise & cultural holiday, Egypt
From
£595
excluding flights
The tour guides provided historical background and information on the sights to stimulate our imagination and awe. Ahmed, our guide in Luxor and Aswan was knowledgeable, answered all our questions and patiently taught us to read hieroglyphics carved in the temples. (more)Hou-Yin Ma
My most memorable part of my holiday was my visit to The Pyramids of Giza, Abu Simbel and Karnak Temple. Part of the reason I consider my entire trip memorable is because of my tour guides. (more)Mary Lyons
Most memorable? I think the Pyramids at Giza and the paintings in the tomb of Ramses I, or perhaps it was the gold mask of Tutankamun, or was it the statue of Ramses II at Memphis... it was always a jaw-dropping moment at each place we visited. (more)Amanda Bristow
Egypt tour, Miracle of the Sun
From
£546
excluding flights
Definitely the Abu Simbel Sun Miracle we were able to witness and experience was the highlight. To be able to see 3 of the 4 pharaohs light up from sun coming through, was an experience we will never forget. (more)Lori Bautista
The owners of Nubia House are extraordinarily gracious and really want you to experience the Nubian way of life; their guest house is decorated in traditional handicrafts, they serve excellent homemade Nubian food, and the atmosphere is serene (more)Janice Darling
Best of Egypt and Jordan holiday
From
£1,413
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The BEST thing about our trip was the absolutely wonderful service we received from the tour company. Tips? Don't settle for the "usual" tour, do your research, decide what you want to see and talk to your tour company. The operator helped us create the tour that was perfect for us. Local benefits? Yes, our holiday benefited the local people. Tourist are staying away from Egypt because they are concerned about the political instability. But we had a wonderful... (more)Janie Kuczer
Egypt budget small group tour
From
£879
excluding flights
I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday, great organisation, very accommodating, great people and sights and all at an affordable price. (more)Ogo Mkparu
The most memorable parts of the holiday were the Guide Waleed, unforgettable. Nothing was too much trouble. Sufi dancing (an optional event) was stupendous. Felucca overnight. Valley of Kings - King Tuts tomb. Snorkelling in Red Sea. (more)Helen Golden
Very difficult to pick out any individual highlights as the whole tour was incredible...Definitely ten out of ten. (more)Roger Stead
Jordan and Egypt budget holiday
From
£850
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Visiting both the Christian Othordox Churches as well as the Muslim Churches was an eye opener in term of how churches evolved. Tips? It's an impressive tour! It's not only about seeing other countries but to enhance yourself on how other communities survived after colonialisation. The results of the global economic impact on the poor is universal. Local benefits? Any holiday or tour does benefit local economy with regards to the investment brought by tourism Overall... (more)Sam Mahlasela
Family holiday to Jordan and Egypt
From
£1,300
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Being up in a hot air balloon at sunrise over the river Nile floating over the Valley of the Kings. Quiet, magical and some wonderful views. Tips? Take a little bit of time to read up on Egypt before - you will get more out of the trip. Local benefits? Yes it benefitted local people. The people in the places that we visited desperately need more people to come and visit. Overall rating? As good and as memorable as any place that we've been to. This... (more)Kulbir Natt
Egypt cultural holiday, small group
From
£699
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Visiting the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Karnak. Tips? Go with an open mind and give Egypt a chance. Local benefits? I definitely believe that the holiday benefitted local people as the Egyptian economy relies on tourism and currently there are very few tourists. Overall rating? Wonderful. I thoroughly recommend it. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable; we were in small groups (10 -11 people per group) and we were very well looked after.... (more)Karin Walda
Family holiday to Egypt, Luxor resort
From
£359
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Far more interesting than expected. The expanse of history was staggering and seeing places like the Valley of the Kings that we’ve read about forever was incredible. For the kids it was Tutankhamen’s tomb and later the contents at the Cairo museum. Bassam, our guide in Cairo was the standout. He was phenomenally knowledgeable, charming, great with children and a very interesting person. He was prepared to talk about anything including current Egyptian politics and was easily... (more)Emer Dooley
Nile cruises, 19th century style
From
£1,195
excluding flights
The amazing sites of ancient Egyptian civilisation were very well commented and made to come alive by our very good guides Joseph and Mohamed from the operator...Excellent, we were extremely well looked after by staff. (more)Christa Gonschorrek Noguera
One of the best holidays we've ever had, and will definitely be back, especially to the sites of upper Egypt. My children, aged 13 and 11, and 72 year-old mother all loved it too, so it is very well suited to a wide age range. (more)Penny Shankar

From
£795
excluding flights

From
£509
excluding flights
The sheer size, age and wonder of the things we were taken to view on this holiday was AMAZING! (more)Bernice Yung
We visited Jordan and Egypt to take in the cultural and historical aspects of the countries and we were not disappointed. Amazing wonderful sights in perfect weather. (more)John Robinson
Our tour was organised brilliantly. We felt safe at all times and the guides were knowledgeable. The 3 day cruise on the Nile was the best part (more)Angela Guildford
Budget holiday in Egypt
From
US $790
excluding flights
The guides in Cairo and in Shram were of great help, involved and dedicated. They made the stay worth it....Excellent because the people that I met prove to be very interested, interesting and prepared to share their culture. (more)Louis Boucher
We liked visiting the pyramids on the back of a camel and the Valley of the Kings very much. As one of our tour guides was so kind to invite us to his home we could meet his family and get an idea how people live in Egypt today. (more)Boris Schaeling
Most memorable were the wonderful ancient monuments we visited - in particular Queen Hatshepsut's mortuary temple - but also Luxor temple, Kom Ombo and Karnak. Also the beautiful vistas on the Nile and sailing in a felucca. (more)Lekha Klouda
Nile cruise holiday in Egypt
From
£1,149
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The attention given to us by our leader Mohammed he made sure we did not miss anything Tips? This is not a relaxing holiday there are early starts and long days but well worth it the train journey is long and not smooth all the way Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? 5 star apart from the train journey. Saw everything we wanted plus more. It was a fabulous holiday, Mohammed is so knowledgeable - he is a credit to your company. Well done! (more)Elaine Gay
Egypt family holiday, Feluccas & Pharaohs
From
£1,325
including UK flights
I think for my 11 year old daughter, seeing everything that she has been learning about in school about Egypt come alive before her very eyes was exciting. Overrall our holiday was one of the best I have done. All our guides, especially Wallide, were very well informed and enthusiastic. He was wonderful with the children and put them totally at ease which made it very easy for the parents to relax. (more)Ann Oversby
Sailing on a felucca along the Nile, then sleeping on deck overnight was the most memorable part... Excellent. (more)Julie Conder
Sailing from Aswan towards Luxor on a felluca with an over night camp on board was most memorable....My daughter and I loved nearly every minute of it. (more)Nicola Carroll
Egypt adventure holiday
From
£645
excluding flights
The best was the people I met the travellers and the local people unforgettable!! Excellent. (more)Raquel Orcajo Miranda
Highlights were the hot air ballooning at sunrise, meeting the donkeys on landing to ride to the valley of the Kings & going into the tombs, all on the final day!! (more)David Varney
Egypt holiday, tailor made
From
£2,270
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the ancient Egyptian sites that are so old and so famous, to actually see them in real life. And to be able to see so much in a few days without feeling rushed! Tips? It is worth if possible to book a private guide, as the only (somewhat) negative comment is that with a big group (off the cruise) the guided tours are not as interesting than when it is exactly according to your timetable and interests. Local benefits? Yes, in principle, but given the... (more)Katrin Nyman-Metcalf
Petra & Pyramids tours to Jordan & Egypt
From
£1,230
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Petra was just incredible; everyone should visit this wonderful city and landscape. Just visiting Petra justifies the travel. Tips? I wouldn't recommend the services of this tour operator; they send us a really wonderful tour and timetables that was not accomplished (mostly in Jordan), the last transfer to Cairo was an 8 hours night ride from Taba with a security guard (we think it's unacceptable that we were not warned of this situation, when it's forbidden to travel... (more)Isabel Villena
Tailor made holiday to Egypt
From
£1,088
excluding flights
The most memorable parts were... staying and eating at the Eskaleh Eco Lodge, meeting and chatting to the owner Mr. Fikrih, going out with them for a boat trip on Lake Nasser, and then the sunrise visit to the great temples of Abu Simbel. (more)Lorraine Buckley
The operator did an amazing job of coordinating all the different parts of our trip. Egypt is a fascinating and lively country...Fabulous! Really had a good time. (more)Sylvia Roba
The Ancient Egyptian sites were amazing of course, one of our favourite moments was finding ourselves deep inside the burial chamber of Khafre's pyramid (the second large pyramid) and having the room to ourselves for a few minutes... (more)Tereza Korbel
Cairo short break, Egypt
From
£250
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Our first day out to see the Great Pyramids. Not much else can beat seeing the pyramids! Tips? In retrospect, with the limited amount of time we had, we could have done without the day option to Alexandria (3 hour drive there and back for a total of 6 hours in a car felt like a day wasted). However, if you like seafood, then the food at the restaurant by the water that we ate at was a bit worthy of the day trip. Also in retrospect, we wished we had known to request...
