Description of Egypt wheelchair accessible holidays
Our Egypt wheelchair accessible holidays ensure that you can enjoy the country’s legendary ancient wonders with comfort and convenience. This private, tailor made 10 day tour can be shaped to your personal requirements, ensuring that nowhere is out of reach. Not only that, but all sightseeing is accompanied by an expert Egyptologist, providing insights and anecdotes, and answering any questions you might have.
Beginning in the bustling capital, Cairo, you’ll visit iconic locations including the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum, and the Khan El Khalili Bazaar, with the option to be accompanied by helpers where needed. Local staff are employed throughout, meaning that more of the profits from your holiday remain in the local community.
From Cairo you’ll head by air-conditioned vehicle to Alexandria, founded by Alexander the Great, before you fly on to Luxor. Here the world-renowned sites include the Valley of the Kings on the west bank of the Nile, where so many Egyptian pharaohs were entombed.
Day trips from your five-star Luxor hotel take in the spectacular High Dam of Aswan, as well as the temples of Abu Simbel. These are two must-see locations for many travellers, and as with those of Cairo, Luxor and Alexandria, they can be visited with confidence. Our Egypt wheelchair accessible tours have been carefully designed to take into account the requirements of exploring every site from start to finish.
