Things to Do in Egypt
Visitors are often amazed by the expected, and enthralled by the unexpected, when they travel through Egypt. Your custom itinerary can take you through ancient lands and structures, engulf you in history, surround you with new sights and sounds, evoke your sense of wonder, or leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.
Be dwarfed by the Great Pyramids of Giza during a private sunrise visit, snorkel or dive in the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea, overwhelm your senses at one of Egypt’s bustling local markets, descend into ancient and colourful pharaonic tombs, walk barefoot and observe worship in one of Egypt’s many mosques, or fly to what feels like the end of the earth to see Abu Simbel, one of the most impressive temples built by Rameses II before sipping tea in a traditional Nubian household. The number of things to do in Egypt are seemingly endless and the diversity of activities often surprises our travellers. Talk to our Egypt specialists today about how to carefully craft your Egypt itinerary to include the right experiences for you and your party, ensuring this holiday is one you will cherish for years to come.
