Adventure holiday in Egypt
Very good, saw some amazing places and had a great time...Pyramids/ Petra were my personal highlights (more)James Adams

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
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 £685 - £720 excluding flights
Nile cruise on a Felucca
Fantastic even though I was really dissapointed about the train journey. (more)Alison Douglas
I really enjoyed the felucca trip between Aswan and Edfu, but would have liked an extra day. I was really impressed by Abu Simbel, and the really deep tomb we saw at the Valley of the Kings make the others there pale in comparison. (more)Clive Parker
From £899 - £1159 including UK 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!

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

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
Nile cruises
The journeys on the small boats on the Nile meant that families were also able to eek out a living and help to preserve the way of life that has been customary to them for hundreds of years whilst still allowing new technologies to embrace and enhance their lives. As a couple who have travelled extensively around the world, this is one of our most memorable and enjoyable holidays. (more)Alan Pavey
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
From £585 excluding flights
