Egypt desert & culture tour
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
From £985 - £1100 excluding flights
Adventure holiday in Egypt
Very good, saw some amazing places and had a great time...Pyramids/ Petra were my personal highlights (more)James Adams
Excellent, sensational, a must-do....Prepare yourself for an amazing mix of adventure and antiquities. (more)Julie Henry
From £999 excluding flights
Egypt tailor made holidays
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
From £750 excluding flights
Egypt tour, Miracle of the Sun
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
From £546 excluding flights
Nile cruise & cultural holiday, Egypt
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
From £595 excluding flights
Egypt adventure holiday
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
From £630 - £715 excluding flights
Family holiday to Egypt, Luxor resort
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
From £359 excluding flights
Abu Simbel tour, Egypt
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
Excellent... Taking a camel ride around the Pyramids of Giza was the most memorable part. (more)Vanessa Dodd
From £530 - £555 excluding flights
Budget holiday in Egypt
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
From US $790 - US $1350 excluding flights
Nile cruise holiday in Egypt
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
From £1149 - £1699 including UK flights
Nile cruises
The side excursions like the donkey ride, horse & buggy, Nubian Museum were the most memorable part. (more)Carolyn Muegge-Vaughan
The Nile cruise and regular stop over points were both unique and spectacular. As someone who has travelled quite widely across the globe, Egypt offers something very different. (more)Paul Hide
What we will remember is watching the sunset from the Tower at the Movenpick Hotel. (more)Patricia Warren
From £585 excluding flights
Discover Egypt tour
Definitely the tombs of the Valley of the Kings but the sailing on the Felucca was great fun. (more)Robert Hall
All of the holiday was memorable but highlights were the Valley of the Kings, the Nile at sunset and climbing Mount Sinai...Excellent. (more)Anne Robson
We had a number of local guides showing us around places such as Elephantine Island as well as several stays with local families which were fantastic (more)Julie Milne
From £795 - £905 excluding flights
Nile cruises, 19th century style
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 £1195 excluding flights
Luxor holiday apartments, Egypt
Abu Simbel and Dendera and sailing down to Aswan were the most memorable parts of the holiday. (more)Vida Juozaitis
Fantastic trip, which I have waited 50 years to do... Meeting local people, being invited to their homes and seeing the country as they see it and not just as a tourist. (more)Jeremy Martineau
