Description of Under 30's holiday to Egypt

Join a small group of like-minded adventurers as you explore the mysteries and majesty of Egypt, beginning in the bustling capital, Cairo, with its colourful bazaars and shisha cafes. You’ll start in time-honoured fashion with an enthralling guided tour of the legendary Egyptian Museum to admire the golden mask of King Tutankhamen, then learn the secrets of the pyramids and the Sphinx on the edge of the desert – the first time you see them is guaranteed to make your jaw drop no matter how many times you’ve seen them in films.

From Cairo it’s an atmospheric sleeper train down to Aswan on the bank of the mighty River Nile. Here you can take an optional tour over to the spectacular Abu Simbel, a temple carved into the rock face, before boarding a felucca for an overnight cruise powered only by wind and sail in the traditional way.

Arriving in the famous city of Luxor, you might take a horse-drawn carriage ride out to the immense Karnak temple complex which dates back as far as 2000BC(!) before you enjoy a donkey ride around the amazing Valley of the Kings, where for centuries Egyptian royalty were buried.

Your adventures comes to an end in Cairo with just a little time left over to pick up some last-minute bargains in the bazaar, before seeing off your travel buddies in style with a few beers in a local restaurant. This is an exciting and endlessly fascinating tour of Egypt, expressly designed with under 30s in mind.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We take a lot of care when choosing the accommodation, we stay in on this trip and instead of selecting the big chain hotels, we opt for locally-run guesthouses which have a lesser impact on the environment. This trip includes two overnight sleeper train journeys, the CO2 emissions of which are far lower than a short haul flight. The train is also an excellent opportunity to understand local travel and interact with local people.

When travelling by public transport isn’t feasible, we do our best to ensure that the private vehicles we use are suitable for our small group sizes. For instance, we wouldn’t use a 16-seater minivan if we only had five people joining us on the trip. We also plan our travel routes so that we spend as little time as possible on the road, which helps to lower the impact of emissions on the local environment in Egypt.

Water is a precious commodity in this part of the world. Our trained tour leaders are well versed in advising travellers on initiatives to manage water consumption. We encourage travellers to treat this scarce resource with the utmost respect.

This trip includes camel riding and our responsibility is to only work with suppliers who look after their animals and treat them with respect. Animals should not carry more than half their body weight, and less in hot conditions or on steep declines. The animals should look well fed, their coats should be in good condition and without sores.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Contributing to the local Egyptian economy is very important to us, which is why this trip uses locally owned operators so that the money our travellers spend stays in the country. The hotels used on this trip are owned by locals and staffed by locals, we work with our local suppliers to align them with our own values in respect of responsible business practices and fair working conditions. Currently 12% of the Egyptian work force is employed in the tourism sector.

One of the best parts of this trip is spending time with locals. Sailing down the Nile on a felucca, stopping to see local life and sharing a meal with your Nubian crew empowers and educates local communities who benefit from you being on this tour. We also spend a night at a local home stay which directly supports a small Island community.

Gender equality is always a hot topic in this part of the world and our own local operator is campaigning for change by employing and training more local female leaders and guides. Once not so long-ago woman educated in tourism guiding where restricted by social values to guiding on sites only. Through educating locals and families, we are seeing an increase in the number of female tour leaders. If you jump on this trip you’ll learn all about how gender equality in tourism in Egypt is changing for the better.
