Hotels in Egypt
The properties, resorts and cruises available in Egypt vary greatly, not only from each other, but from what many of our guests may be used to when they travel internationally. There are a handful of Egyptian accommodations that Scott Dunn has carefully selected, and your dedicated travel consultant will be able to talk you through the experience at each. Some Egyptian hotels ooze grandeur and history, and others are simply in the best location available for sightseeing.
The beauty of travel through Egypt lies in our unique ability to match your preferred travel style with the perfect Egypt hotel, Nile cruise, or Red Sea resort. Whether you want to sleep in the shadows of the great pyramids on the Giza plateau outside Cairo, or be lulled to bed by the gentle motion of the Nile as you cruise between Luxor and Aswan, we will find the right accommodation for you.
