Egypt Travel Guide

Egypt is largely a desert, an extension of the great Sahara that bands North Africa, is located in north–eastern Africa with its capital located in its largest city, Cairo. Egypt also extends into Asia by virtue of holding the Sinai Peninsula. Egypt is bordered by Israel and the Gaza Strip to the north–east, by Sudan to the south and by Libya to the west. The country is bounded by the Mediterranean and Red Seas and is geographically dominated both by the Nile River and its fertile well–watered valley, and by the Eastern and Western deserts.

Egypt is perhaps best known as the home of the ancient Egyptian civilization, with its temples, hieroglyphs, mummies, and – visible above all – its pyramids. Less well–known is Egypt's medieval heritage, courtesy of Coptic Christianity and Islam – ancient churches, monasteries and mosques punctuate the Egyptian landscape. Egypt stimulates the imagination of western tourists like few other countries and is probably one of the most popular tourist destinations world–wide.

Generally, the summers are hot and dry and the winters, moderate. November through March are definitely the most comfortable months for travel in Egypt. There is almost no rain in the Nile valley, so you won't need wet weather gear!

Immerse yourself in mystery and wonder on your luxury Egypt holidays. Home to two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the iconic Nile, Egypt is a country worth savouring, and we can help you do just that.

Be sure to follow in the footsteps of the pharaohs and take in the sights of the vast Pyramids of Giza, the towering sphinx, the tomb of Tutankhamun at the Valley of the Kings and glide through the water on the Nile. Visit the busy souks and be entranced by the sights and sounds of Egypts streets, sit and enjoy a traditional tea or shisha pipe and watch as life unfolds around you.

Or if pure relaxation is what you are looking for, take a break at one of our beautiful Red Sea resorts and explore reefs and wrecks before relaxing on one of the beaches and enjoying a more laidback way of life.

Things to do

There is a lot to do for visitors to Egypt. Apart from visiting and seeing the ancient temples and artifacts of ancient Egypt, there is also much to see within each city. In fact, each city in Egypt has its own charm of things to see with its own history, culture, activities, and people who often differ in nature from people of other parts of Egypt.

Highlights of any visit to Egypt include famous archaeological sites from both Lower (North) and Upper (South) Egypt. The most famous are:

Cairo
Visit the bustling metropolis of Cairo, the largest city in both Egypt and Africa, and one of the oldest and most magnificent cities in the World. You certainly will not be bored in this amazing city, as there is plenty to be seen, you will visit the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx and the famous bustling Khan el Khalil bazaar the oldest operating Bazaar in the modern world.

Alexandria
Alexandria, with several historical sights and the stunning new Bibliotheca Alexandrina, is the country's main summer attraction for Egyptians escaping the summer heat and looking for a place to spend the summer vacation. Tourist attractions include Roman and Greek monuments, Bibliotheca Alexandria, Qa'edbay's Castle, and Qasr El Montaza (El Montaza Palace).

Luxor
Luxor attracts thousands of visitors every year, and it is no wonder, as it is best described as the greatest outdoor museum in the world. It is a truly remarkable destination, home to almost one third of the worlds antiquities and containing many fascinating cultural sites, which reflect in every way the greatness of the ancient Egyptians and their civilization which dates back over seven thousand years. Combing a stay in Luxor with some of the fascinating excursions on offer undoubtedly offers a gateway to the ancient world for cultural enthusiasts.

Aswan
In Aswan, you can see even more temples and ancient monuments. You can also see Geziret El Nabatat (The Island of Plants). This is an island in the Nile River of Aswan which was planted by rare species of plants, trees, and flowers. Perhaps the most popular activity in Luxor and Aswan is to do the Nile Cruise on a ship from Aswan to Luxor. It enables you to stop at each location along the Nile where you can see all the famous ancient monuments as well as experience being in the Nile River inside a five–star hotel boat.

  • The Red Sea resorts at Sinai Peninsula, including Dahab, Hurghada, and Sharm el Sheikh. The Red Sea offers some of the best dive locations in the world.
  • The sights of the Sinai Peninsula, including Saint Catherine's Monastery and Mount Sinai.
  • The western desert and the oases there, including Siwa,
  • Memphis, with some relics of ancient Egypt – including a huge statue of Rameses II, evoking the image which inspired Percy Bysshe Shelley's poemOzymandias

It is little surprise that with the rich diversity that Egypt offers, coupled with over five thousand years of history, incredible sights and sounds, stunning coastal resorts and world class hotels, holidays to Egypt are becoming increasingly popular. Egypt really does have something for absolutely every one.
