Best time to visit egypt.

Egypt is blessed with lots of sunshine and very little rain. Generally, the hottest months are June to August, and the coolest month is January. Rainfall is negligible, except on the coast, with rain usually occurring during the winter months (December to March).

During the summer months (from June to August), daily temperatures can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) - perfect for snorkeling and soaking up the sun on the beaches of Sinai, but can prove challenging for some in the crowded streets and souqs of Cairo.

Choose to escape the crowds by traveling from March to May or September to November when the weather is milder, and there's the opportunity to experience Egypt during Ramadan and the celebrations of Eid (which marks the breaking of the fast). If you are planning to travel during Ramadan, it's important to consider that many restaurants and shops will either be closed or operating at reduced hours.

Culture and customs

Life in Egypt has been in a state of flux since the 2011 revolution. Many of the issues that motivated so many to take to the streets in protest continue to be points of contention, but Egyptians remain hopeful, relying on religion, family and humor to get them through, like they have for thousands of years. A strong sense of community binds people across the country. Families and communities support each other and there is a prevailing sense that everyone is in it together. For all these reasons, most express great pride in being Egyptian, despite their nation’s recent turmoil.

As a largely Muslim country (about 90% of the population is Muslim while most of the remaining 10% identify as Coptic Christian), Islam permeates daily activities. Life revolves around the five daily prayers and everything is closed on Friday, the Muslim holy day. A wide array of cultural norms, including how people dress and interact with the opposite sex, are influenced by religion. Women are largely defined by their role as a mother and matron of the house, whereas men are expected to be the provider.

Many Egyptians consider their country the gateway between the West and the rest of the Arab world, and take pride in their ability to mix tradition with modern influences. This mixing is most apparent in major cities, such as Cairo and Alexandria, where American fast-food chains can be found next to traditional cafes, secular attitudes are more common, and pop music rings through city streets.

Food and drink

With fragrant spices, fresh fruit and vegetables, and delicious sweets on offer, culinary adventures in Egypt are guaranteed. On many Intrepid trips you'll be given the opportunity to dine with a local family – this offers a great chance to see how meals are prepared and learn more about the ingredients.

Things to try in Egypt

1. Hamam mahshi

A north African delicacy, hamam – roasted pigeon stuffed with cracked wheat and rice – can be found on the menu of most traditional Egyptian restaurants. You may need a few to fill up though, as they don’t contain a lot of meat. And be careful of all the tiny bones.

2. Ta'ameya (falafel)

Crunchy on the outside, and moist on the inside, these deep-fried balls of spiced fava beans are a Middle Eastern vegetarian staple. Usually served in a pita with salad, pickles, and sesame-based tahina - buy it at a street stall for a quick, cheap meal.

Shops specializing in this popular ‘poor man’s dish’ can be found throughout Cairo. A hearty mix of rice, macaroni and lentils, chickpeas, and fried onions, koshary is topped with a tomato-vinegar sauce.

4. Ful medames

Don't leave Egypt without trying the classic dish of ful medames, which can be traced back to pharaonic times. Consisting of slow-cooked fava beans, served with olive oil, parsley, garlic, and lemon juice - add some spice by seasoning with chili paste and eat with bread.

5. Pastries

Delicious, sweet pastries are found in restaurants, markets, and cafes in Egypt. Never was there a better time to live by the adage ‘Life is short, eat dessert first’.

Egypt is a mostly Muslim country, and any consumption of alcohol here is relatively low-key. There are many fantastic alternatives. Juice stands are common on main streets offering freshly squeezed banana, guava, or mango juice. Karkadai is a chilled, crimson drink brewed from hibiscus leaves (served hot in the winter). And tea (or shai) is the beverage of choice for most Egyptians, which is sipped throughout the day and with meals.

Geography and environment

Located in the northeast corner of Africa, Egypt shares its borders with Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Libya, and Sudan, as well as the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Red Sea to the east. The two seas are connected by the man-made Suez Canal.

The remote triangle-shaped peninsula is largely characterized by limestone and desert, but also has a vibrant coral reef along the Red Sea coastline. Hot, dry desert covers most of the country’s terrain, with the Western Desert occupying much of the west, and the Arabian (or Eastern) Desert stretching the length of the eastern coast. These two regions are dissected by the Nile River, which runs the length of the country, emptying into the Mediterranean Sea. The Nile Valley, a narrow fertile band extending from the river, is the country’s only fertile land and where 98% of the population lives.

History and government

Recent history.

Napoleon Bonaparte, the infamous pint-sized French leader, invaded Egypt in 1798, seeking to set up a French colony. However, not long after, the French were repelled, and Egypt became a part of the Ottoman Empire once again.

From 1882, the British Army occupied Egypt to protect the Suez Canal. Muhammad Ali officially ruled from the early 1800s, and his family and successors continued to rule for decades (alongside and during British occupation) until overthrown by a military coup in 1952.

During World War II, Egypt became a crucial element in Britain's defense. The Italian Army tried to advance into Egypt in 1940 but was stopped by the British Army at Mersa Matruh. Egypt continued to serve as a vital base for British troops during World War II and despite the disruption, Egypt's shopkeepers and retail trade benefitted from the thousands of Allied troops staying in Egypt.

In 1953, Egypt was officially declared a republic, and a year later, Colonel Nasser was declared Prime Minister, then President. In 1979, after decades of confrontation with neighboring Israel, the historic Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty was signed. This agreement made Egypt the first Arab country to officially recognize Israel as a country - a significant step in the peace process. More recently, in February 2011, large-scale protests and mass demonstrations resulted in the removal of President Mubarak after decades of autocratic rule.

Early history

Ancient Egypt has been the focus of much fascination, investigation, speculation, and intrigue. It's hard to escape the education system without having studied Ancient Egypt in some way. Drawn in by the mighty pyramids, mysterious hieroglyphics, distinct burial rituals and animal-headed gods - scholars, students, historians, and travelers are all amazed by this civilization which has endured cycles of dynastic rule, invasion, and natural disasters.

Through key archaeological finds, historians have been able to unravel some of the mysteries of this great land. What is known is that the daily life of the average Egyptian usually involved working in agriculture with the waters of the Nile providing fertile ground for planting crops. Egyptians usually lived in modest homes with children and domestic pets. Professions were usually inherited - so if your father was a farmer, then so were you.

While most Egyptians led simple lives, dynasties of Pharaohs led lavish lifestyles, with the most well-known being Ramses II, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, Tutankhamun, and Cleopatra. Huge monuments, imposing pyramids, golden artifacts, and detailed paintings all hold details about pharaonic rule and succession, as well as commonly held beliefs about religion and the afterlife.

Spanning centuries and full of drama worthy of a soap opera, the epic history of Ancient Egypt is complex and we suggest you read about it before visiting.

Top 10 ancient wonders of Egypt

1. grand designs.

The original grand design - monumental and magnificent - the Pyramids of Giza are an impressive achievement in ancient engineering. Towering above the desert sands and standing proudly for centuries, the first glimpse of these stunning structures will render visitors breathless.

2. Stony enigma

Be captivated by the mysterious aura of the Great Sphinx of Giza. This monolithic mythical beast possesses a lion’s body and a human head - and has sat quietly in the desert sands for eons. Gaze at the Sphinx and try to work out the riddle of its existence.

3. Mighty Nile River

No trip to Egypt is complete without visiting the Nile River - the life force of Egypt that has flowed for centuries. A provider of irrigation, an essential travel route, home to hippos and crocodiles, and now a source of leisure for locals and travelers alike, the Nile is an aquatic link to Egypt’s ancient heritage.

4. Terrific temples

Discover an enormous open-air museum like no other. The awe-inspiring Temples of Karnak are filled with stately statues, immense columns, and gigantic gateways. Explore this intriguing site and be left in no doubt about the brilliance of the ancient Egyptian civilization.

5. Holy mountain

Embark on a trek to the top of Mt Sinai and witness an incredible golden sunrise to remember. A place of worship for many faiths, a pilgrimage to Mt Sinai reveals stunning scenery, an ancient monastery and historic chapels. An iconic highlight of Egypt for believers and non-believers alike, Mt Sinai is not to be missed.

6. Double happiness

Located in the Nile Valley, the unique Temple of Kom Ombo is a ‘double temple’ and a rare archaeological find. Dedicated to two gods, a visit here is a true highlight of an Egyptian escapade. Marvel at the well-preserved wall reliefs, try to decipher the hieroglyphics and honour the craftsmen who created this wonder.

7. Museum magic

Step into a dazzling world of antiquity at the Egyptian Museum. Be amazed by the glittering treasures recovered from King Tutankhamun’s tomb – with jewelry, furniture, chariots and that famous gold funerary mask, this pharaoh was certainly prepared for the afterlife.

8. Roman ruins

The Roman ruins of Kom el-Dikka in Alexandria may not be the biggest, but they are certainly among the best-preserved in Egypt, if not the world. Soak up the atmosphere of the Roman amphitheater and imagine it in all its glory - packed with 800 spectators ready for action.

9. Colossal characters

Near the modern city of Luxor stand the imposing Colossi of Memnon. These massive stone statues of Amenhotep III, while badly damaged, still maintain an unmistakable air of authority. Stand below them and be dwarfed by the scale of these tremendous figures.

10. The ancient heart of Cairo

Wander the cobbled streets of Islamic Cairo and uncover the ancient heart of this chaotic city. Admire mosques, palaces and houses, and peruse the goods on offer at one of the world’s oldest bazaars. Dating back to medieval times, the Khan al-Khalili bazaar is where people have traded goods for centuries.

Souqs – or open-air bazaars – are both the best place to shop in Egypt and attractions in their own right. The biggest and most famous souq is the 500-year-old Khan El Khalili Bazaar in Cairo. Within the maze of narrow streets and laneways lie stalls selling jewelry, glass, copper, spices and artisan goods, along with more standard tourist fare. Quality can vary greatly so spend some time shopping around.

Like many markets around the world, bargaining is the norm, but Egyptians take it to another level. Expect to be offered tea (it can take that long) and for elaborate theatrics from the seller. While bazaars in Cairo tend to sell everything, visit Aswan’s bazaar for spices, incense, and basketwork, and Luxor for cheaply priced alabaster figurines and vases. It's also a good idea to check with your local customs officials to ensure that you are able to bring certain items back into your home country.

Things to buy in Egypt

You’ll often see spices piled high in bazaars. In addition to making a great photo for Instagram, they’re often a good buy as long as you keep a couple of things in mind. Always buy whole spices rather than ground to ensure freshness and skip the ‘saffron’ – it’s actually safflower and tastes like dust.

2. Glassware

Hand-blown Muski glass, recognizable by its air bubbles, comes in brilliant shades of blue and green and purple and has been made in Egypt since medieval times. Be careful with this purchase though as it’s extremely fragile.

3. Cartouche

A kind of nameplate written in hieroglyphics. Most gold or silver shops sell these and many can customize them by engraving your name.

Festivals and events

Eid al-Fitr

After fasting for an entire month, Muslims celebrate the end of Ramadan with Eid al-Fitr, or ‘Feast of Breaking the Fast’. For three days, starting on the first day of the tenth month of the lunar calendar, people celebrate with feasts, family, and festivals. Look for vendors selling kahk cookies (nut-filled cookies covered in powdered sugar) while taking in the festivities, a tasty treat synonymous with Eid for many locals.

Eid al-Adha

Arguably the most important holiday in Egypt, the ‘Feast of Sacrifice’ is not one for vegetarians and vegans. About 70 days after Eid al-Fitr, sheep, and goats are slaughtered (often in the middle of the street) for a mighty feast.

Sham el-Nessim

Each year on March 21st, Egyptians celebrate the coming of spring by spending the day outdoors. Join the locals for this ancient holiday by packing a picnic and heading to a park or public garden.

Abu Simbel Sun Festival

As if the two temples dedicated to Ramses II and Queen Nefertari weren’t impressive enough, they were constructed in such a way that twice a year, the sun’s rays reach its innermost chambers and illuminate three stone gods that reside within, while leaving Ptah (god of the underworld) in the dark. And those days just happen to be Ramses’s birthday (October 21) and coronation (February 21). Coincidence? We think not.

Egypt travel faqs, do i need a covid-19 vaccine to join an intrepid trip.

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travelers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises).

However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travelers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

Do you need a visa to travel to Egypt?

Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveler. Entry requirements can change at any time, so it's important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Check the Essential Trip Information section of the itinerary for more information.

Is tipping customary in Egypt?

Tipping is customary for pretty much all services in Egypt. A tip of 10–15% is customary at cafes and restaurants and loose change is acceptable for food purchases from street vendors and markets. It’s also a good idea to tip local guides and drivers USD$2.50-3 per day.

What is the internet access like in Egypt?

Internet access is growing in Egypt, with internet cafes and Wi-Fi hotspots becoming increasingly common in large cities, especially Cairo, though access may be limited in smaller towns and remote areas.

Can I use my cell phone in Egypt?

Cell phone coverage is generally good in Egypt’s urban areas, but may not be available in remote and desert areas. Ensure global roaming is activated with your service provider before leaving home.

What are the toilets like in Egypt?

Squat toilets are most common in Egypt, although Western-style flushable toilets can be found in larger hotels and some tourist areas.

Can I drink the water in Egypt?

Drinking tap water isn’t recommended in Egypt. Remember to avoid drinks with ice and to peel fruit before eating it. Help the environment and try to avoid buying bottled water. Instead, fill a reusable water bottle with filtered water. Ask your leader or hotel where to find filtered water.

Are credit cards accepted widely in Egypt?

Credit cards are usually accepted by modern hotels, large retailers, and tourist sites but are less commonly accepted by smaller vendors in remote areas. Always carry enough cash for smaller purchases in case credit cards are not an option.

What is ATM access like in Egypt?

ATMs are commonly found in larger cities, like Cairo and Alexandria, near shopping centers, tourist areas, and 5-star hotels, but are far less common in small towns and rural areas. Make sure you have enough cash before leaving urban areas.

Is Egypt a safe destination for LGBTQIA+ travelers?

Discretion is advised for LGBTQI travelers in Egypt. Though homosexuality is not officially outlawed, gay men have been prosecuted using debauchery and public morals laws and given long prison sentences. Be aware that signals are ambiguous in Egypt as men commonly hold hands, link arms and greet each other with a kiss on the cheek. As long as you use common sense, travel in Egypt should not be a problem.

For more detailed and up-to-date advice, we recommend visiting Equaldex  or ILGA before you travel.

If you are traveling solo on an Intrepid group tour, you will share accommodation with a passenger of the same gender as per your passport information. If you don’t identify with the gender assigned on your passport, please let us know at the time of booking and we’ll arrange the rooming configuration accordingly. A single supplement is available on some tours for travelers who do not wish to share a room.

What to wear in Egypt

Summer temperatures can get very high, so light fabrics like linen, cotton and athletic gear made to take the heat are best. If you’re traveling outside of winter, don’t underestimate the cool change that can come in the evenings, especially if you’re spending the night in the desert or on a Nile cruise. Avoid packing anything in white – desert dust will quickly turn those light-colored clothes a not-so-delightful shade of brown.

How will I travel around Egypt?

Intrepid believes half the fun of experiencing a new country is getting there, and getting around once there! Where possible, Intrepid uses local transport options and traditional modes of transport - which usually carry less of an environmental impact, support small local operators and are heaps more fun.

Where will I stay in Egypt?

Traveling with Intrepid is a little bit different. We endeavor to provide travelers with an authentic experience to remember, so we try to keep accommodation as unique and traditional as possible.

When traveling with us in Egypt you may find yourself staying in a:

Felucca Glide down the Nile on a traditional Egyptian felucca; sleep on deck under the stars as the sun slides away for the day - a must-do experience while in Egypt.

Homestay Be welcomed into the home of a local family and experience the cuisine, culture and customs of Egypt firsthand during your stay. A truly authentic travel experience like no other.

Desert camp Travel deep into the White Desert to camp under the stars amid surreal scenery. This is a rare chance to experience the remote wonder and isolation of the Egyptian desert.

With calming Red Sea views and fresh sea breezes, this rustic breach abode is all about life’s simple pleasures.

Plus, you'll have ready-made friends to share the journey with. All you have to do is turn up with a healthy sense of adventure and we’ll take care of the rest.

Animal Care in Egypt

Hamam Mahshi

In Egypt, pigeons are marinated and stuffed with rice or freekeh, onions, giblets and a variety of spices like cumin, pepper and cinnamon. The whole bird is then grilled or spit-roasted, and while Egyptians traditionally eat hamam mahshi during celebratory occasions, you can also find it in restaurants around the country.

A classic Egyptian dish made of pita bread stuffed with minced meat, onions, parsley and onions, which is then baked in an oven. It’s traditionally made in Egyptian homes, although our Local Specialists will show you the best restaurants to try this delicious dish.

Kushari is Egypt’s favorite fast food, made from a bowl of macaroni, chickpeas, rice and black lentils covered in tomato sauce and fried onions. It’s then topped with spicy chilli sauce and garlic vinegar, and it’s one of the tastiest comfort foods in the country.

What to pack for Egypt

People packing for a tour

Pack for sustainable travel

Consider your environmental impact when you next take a trip and go single-use-plastic-free by packing a reusable water bottle, a steel straw, your own shopping bags and refillable toiletry bottles.

Adaptor plug

In Egypt, the standard voltage is 220 V and the power plugs and sockets are of type C and F. The standard frequency is 50 Hz.

Comfortable shoes

From exploring the Great Pyramids of Giza, to wandering the Botanical Gardens, you’ll need a comfortable pair of shoes on your Egypt holiday.

Light clothing

Egypt is known for its blazing heat, so it’s best to wear light, loose-fit clothing. Since Egypt is a Muslim country, you’ll need to ensure your shoulders and knees are covered.

The sunshine can be blinding in Egypt, so bring a pair of sunglasses to protect you from the sun rays and the sandy desert.

Protect yourself from the sun with SPF 30 or higher and be sure to apply it regularly. It’s also advised to bring a hat and a light scarf to shield your skin.

What people love about Egypt Tours

The tour was absolutely fun and affordably priced. I loved the overland option as I'm not a great fan of cruises. Although the train journey was long, the train itself was clean. I regret not upgrading to the domestic flight option. Thank you for making this tour possible and arranging it so well.
Husband & I enjoyed a 14 night trip to Hurghada & then a Nike Cruise. George was our cruise tour guide. We found him to be considerate & knowledgeable. He spoke excellent English & had a depth & breadth of knowledge on Egyptian history that only a person with a passion for their subject could have. George was an amazing guide & I would recommend him & the tour company 100%
This was an excellent trip! Wael was informative, responsive at all times and kept history alive with stories and fun activities. The team was incredibly flexible, accommodating every question and request. It was our first time in Egypt, our first time on a Nile cruise, and our first time on a group tour. I would highly recommend this trip!

Your Egypt Vacation

Live like a pharaoh with an Egypt vacation package: Tour the father of African rivers, the Nile, see the pyramids up close, relax in 5-star style in cosmopolitan Cairo. Or set history aside and pack your bags for a Sharm el Sheikh Egypt vacation package where the diving is some of the best in the world, and the nightlife equals the luxury resorts that line the peninsula. This land may be home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, but it leads the way in modern luxury. However, outside the hotels and apartments, things get beyond beautiful. Think sheltered sandy beaches, mangrove forests, coral reefs, and vast lakes. Pack your bags to experience it for yourself.

Giza is home to the last remaining wonder of the ancient world. The pyramids here are what many travelers picture when they think of Egypt in the first place, and this is where you'll want to go to see them in person. These incredible structures are thousands of years old, with more time between their construction and the reign of Cleopatra than there is between Cleopatra and the moon landing.

The temple complexes at Luxor proper and Karnak can make you feel as if you've stepped back in time to what Thebes was like thousands of years ago. Plus, the city is able to keep the ruins so well preserved in large part due to traveler funds.

The best family​ vacation​ ever

My family and I just returned home from a two week holiday in Egypt and we have already decided that we will be visiting again in the next two to three years. It was the most amazing experience ever. We booked our trip through Egypt Vacations.com and we have zero regrets. From the day we first contacted them, they went out of their way to help us with our travel plans and were happy to make a number of changes to the tour package we had our eyes on. When we arrived in Egypt we spent the first 3 nights in Cairo. We didn’t do any sightseeing on the day we arrived but the next two days were amazing. We were really glad that we had our own guide, driver and vehicle. Our Nile cruise was definitely the biggest highlight of our trip and something we would recommend to anyone planning a trip to Egypt —Stacy​ David

Top notch service all the way

First up, my wife and I would like to say a huge “Thank You” to Egypt Tours for a vacation that couldn’t have been more perfect than it was. Everyone went out of their way to make sure that all of our requirements were met. From the time we arrived in Cairo, to the time we boarded our flight back home, our trip was flawless. Our only regret is that our holiday could have been a little bit longer because there is just so much to see in Egypt. Our guides were incredibly friendly, extremely knowledgeable and spoke fluent English, and just as well because very few of the locals speak English. It was also nice to have our own vehicle and driver rather than having to haggle with taxi drivers. My wife and I will definitely be visiting again and we will be booking through the same company again. —Herbert​ Hager

So much better with​ a​ guide

The first time I visited Egypt, I visited on my own and I ended up missing out on so much. More recently, I decided to book a package tour that included guided sightseeing tours in Cairo and a luxury Nile River cruise which is something I have wanted to do for many years. I visited many of the same attractions in Cairo that I did the first time I was in Egypt but this time I had my own English speaking guide and what an incredible difference it made. I also had my own driver and a very nice air conditioned vehicle during my time in Cairo which meant that I didn’t have to bother using any public transport or taxis. If you are considering visiting Egypt and you want a totally hassle-free experience, I can definitely recommend booking your trip through EgyptVacations.com. Thank you to everyone who helped to make my dream holiday come true. —Susan Evans

Can I book my flights with Egypt Vacations too?

Yes, we would be happy to organize and book your flights for you. This can be paid for during the booking of your vacation.

Do I need a visa to enter Egypt?

Yes, all citizens need a visa to enter Egypt. You can apply for a 1-month entry visa at the Egyptian embassy in your country, register for an e-Visa online, or purchase the visa in the airport upon arrival.

When is the best time to visit Egypt?

The summer holidays may seem most convenient, but the hot weather from June to August makes this part of the year quite uncomfortable for tourists. We recommend booking a fall or spring visit that coincides with the school holidays so you can travel as a family.

Is a week in Egypt long enough?

You can see a lot in seven days. Tour the iconic monuments, see the pyramids, explore the markets, and spend a few evenings in the best restaurants that only the locals know. Seven days is just enough for exploring the best of Cairo and a cruise down the Nile. For a more rounded trip of Egypt, traveling along the Nile, visiting temples, and delving into the rich history and culture, we recommend a minimum of 10 days. Two weeks is often the best option to see all that Egypt has to offer, giving you time to travel leisurely from Luxor to Abu Simbel and back down to Cairo on the Nile or along the Red Sea.

What destinations do you recommend in Egypt?

We thoroughly recommend visiting the pyramids, taking a camel ride, and following the advice of our tour guides to get the most from these iconic monuments. The famous of Temples of Ramses II are also unmissable, and if you really want to get a grasp of the sheer magnitude of Ancient Egyptian civilization, an excursion to Luxor is essential. Ask our tour guides to recommend bazaars and restaurants to visit too!

What should I expect on my Egypt vacation?

Egypt is blissfully hot, but with the right tour you’ll never be stifled by the crowds. Urban Egypt is full of things to see and experiences to enjoy, while ancient monuments and relaxing river cruises add mysticism to your vacation. Nowhere else on Earth combines the two, with a touch of luxury and leisure, like Egypt does.

Here are a few ideas to consider if you are planning to visit Egypt:

Red Sea Egypt Vacations – A Diver’s Paradise

To begin, when most people think of scuba diving, they think of the Caribbean and other tropical locales. When they think of Egypt, they think of the Giza Pyramid complex, desert sands and the country’s many historic sites that line the banks of the Nile River in Upper Egypt. However, besides the country’s countless historic sites and its amazing history, Egypt’s Red Sea coatline is where you will find some of the most amazing snorkeling and scuba diving sites in the world.

From gorgeous brightly colored coral reefs to exotic fish and plant-life, you won’t be disappointed with Egypt vacation packages that include snorkeling or diving in the Red Sea at places like Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh, and Marsa Alam. Sharm El Sheikh has grown to become a lively city with a vibrant culture of its own, while Hurghada is considerably more laid back, and Marsa Alam even more so.

Even if you are not an experienced diver, Egypt Tours Plus has Egypt vacation packages that let you get your PADI diving certification, which is recognized internationally. Both novice and veteran divers from all over the world will love the opportunities and great deals available for scuba diving in Egypt’s clear blue water during their vacation in Egypt.

In the three places mentioned above, you’ll find miles of amazing hotels, spectacular all inclusive resorts, gorgeous beaches and some of the clearest, most beautiful water in the entire world. Divers can look forward to spotting lionfish, Spanish dancer nudibranch, stingrays, and Hurghada stars, as well as all kinds of other undersea wildlife.

And, when you’re not diving, when you spend time on your Egypt vacation packages in Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada, you can enjoy vibrant nightlife, excellent restaurants, and even camel rides with Bedouins in the desert, too. All inclusive Egypt vacation packages that include Hurghada or Sharm are full of fun and adventure, as well as culture and amazing dining.

Both place are extremely popular among visitors from both Europe and America, and currently prices are very affordable. For the ultimate experience, consider booking a Cairo & Nile cruise package that includes at least two or three days in one of these two amazing coastal resort towns. This will allow you to enjoy private guided tours in Cairo during which you will visit places like the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum and the bustling Khan el Khalili Bazaar before heading to Aswan or Luxor for a 5-Star cruise on the Nile River, after which you will get to spend a few days on Egypt’s beautiful Red Sea coast.

Spiritual Vacations in Egypt – Walk Through Biblical History

Have you ever wondered what it was like in the days when the Bible was written? And, have you read the story of Mary and Joseph fleeing with baby Jesus from King Herod? One of the Egypt vacation packages open to you through Egypt Tours Plus is the Holy Family Trip to Egypt. On this tour of Egypt, you’ll not only see some of the most beautiful historical sites in the world, including the Pyramids of Giza and several Ancient Egyptian temples, Including Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple, but you’ll also travel the same route that is described in the Bible.

At the end of your journey through biblical lands, these vacations to Egypt end with an all inclusive 5-Star Nile cruise . Plus, your entire trip will be taken in style and comfort as you see and experience all that Egypt has to offer along the way.

Historical Trips to Egypt

Visit Valley Of The Kings

Vacation Packages to Egypt - Tomb in Valley of the Kings

Inside Tomb of Ramesses VI in Valley of the Kings.

The Valley of the Kings is located in Upper Egypt, on the west bank of the Nile River near modern day Luxor. In terms of visitor numbers, this site is second only to the majestic Pyramids of Giza in Cairo. When you visit Biban El Moluk (the Valley of the Kings), you’ll see some of the most impressive ancient tombs in all of the world. Wear a good pair of walking shoes for Egypt vacation packages that include the Valley of the Kings, though, because you’ll be given the opportunity not just to lay eyes on the exteriors of these impressive tombs, but you will also to be able to enter and explore some of them.

Perhaps the most famous tomb found here is Tutankhamen’s, which was a great find of the 20 th century, as it was not discovered until the 1920s when it was unearthed fully intact. However, you’ll find it interesting as you walk through these ancient burial places, to discover that Tutankhamen was not the wealthiest of pharaohs. You may be surprised to find some of the lesser known of these kings were also some of the wealthiest with some of the largest tombs.

Of course, if you want to see the jewels and treasures that Tutankhamen and other pharaohs were buried with, you won’t find them in the Valley of the Kings. These relics are on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, which is itself one of the top tourist attractions in Egypt .

The Valley of Kings can be visited as part of a day trip from Cairo. A one-day Luxor tour will typically also include a visit to other ancient sites in the area, including Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple, Hatshepsut Temple, and the Colossi of Memnon. Be aware that with a one-day Luxor tour, you will be following quite a rushed schedule. If you have the time, and if your finances allow for it, We would highly recommend booking and Egypt tour package that includes a Nile cruise since all good Nile cruises include a guided Luxor tour.

See the Temples of Karnak

According to BBC’s Michael Wood, “Karnak is like a theme park of ancient Egyptian religion – in which every god and goddess of that civilization was represented over a period of about 2,000 years.” The temples and other structures here are gathered on the site of the ancient city of Thebes in a space that covers more than a square mile of land. Here you’ll find an incredible diorama of ancient history, including all manners of temples, obelisks, kiosks, and sanctuaries dedicated exclusively to the worship of gods and goddesses.

At Karnak, you’ll see the Great Temple of Amun and its Hypostyle Hall, and there are multiple Light and Sound performances eachevening to bring these amazing pieces of history to life right before your eyes, giving Egypt vacation packages even more appeal. Not surprisingly, a visit to Karnak Temple is included in all of our existing Nile cruises from Luxor to Aswan . Our Aswan to Luxor cruises also include a visit to the Karnak Temple complex which is the second most visited archaeological site in Egypt, second only to the ancient pyramids at the  Giza pyramid complex.

Experience the Luxor Temple

Speaking of ancient Thebes, this site is now the home of the city of Luxor, where you can find even more breathtaking ancient attractions than just the temples at Karnak. In the very center of the city, for example, you’ll find the Temple of Luxor.

Built by Amenhotep III and Ramesses II in approximately 1400 BC, the Temple of Luxor was erected to house celebrations of the festival of Opet. As years passed, the rulers who followed these two continued building onto the impressive structure, and its function turned to a place of worship for Christians and then later for Muslims. You can still see the beautiful mosque that was built inside the temple today.

Daytime visits to the Temple of Luxor during Egypt vacation packages are impressive enough. However, to get the most out of the view, take a walk to this beautiful structure around sunset, as it is especially beautifully illuminated at night, making this a popular time to visit the complex.

Luxor Temple is another ancient monument which features in most of our all-inclusive Egypt holiday packages and in every Nile River cruise offered on our website.

See El-Amarna

Located between Luxor and the Nile River delta is an artifact from one of Egyptian history’s greatest scandals. Many books and movies have been created about the famed Nefertiti and her husband Akhenaten, the “heretic” pharaoh. In potentially the very first attempt at monotheism in history, Akhenaten broke away from worshipping the traditional Egyptian gods and goddesses when he built the new capital and started a new form of worship.

To start anew and commune with their new god Aten (the sun, who replaced Amun), Akhenaten and Nefertiti moved to El-Amarna, their sanctuary of new religious dreams. In just a few years, though, both were dead, and worship turned back to the old gods.

The abandoned royal tombs of El-Amarna still stand in the eastern water channels, and the entire site is both beautiful and lonely. If you’ve ever been caught up with the story of the fabled beauty of Nefertiti and her heretic husband, El-Amarna is a beautiful place to visit to see where the tales you’ve heard and read actually occurred. This ancient gem is best visited by way of a half day trip from Luxor, one of the most interesting Egyptian cities.

Stroll Through the Egyptian Museum of Cairo

Trips to Egypt - Egyptian Museum in Cairo

Interior of Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Egypt.

Of course, most Egypt vacation packages will have to include some time in Cairo to see some of the very best Cairo tourist attractions , including the Pyramids of Giza, the Khan el Khalili market, and the Egyptian Museum. This remarkable museum Cover covers roughly 5,000 years of Egyptian history and Egyptian culture. By visiting this museum before or after you visit the Valley of the Kings and the ancient Egyptian temples of Karnak, you can get an even greater appreciation for the culture and content of these ancient structures when you visit the Egyptian Museum of Cairo.

With over 120,000 artifacts, it is easy to understand why the Egyptian Museum is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Cairo

Including a trip to the Egyptian Museum of Cairo is a great way to get a better feel for Egyptian history and culture before continuing with the rest of your plans for your Egyptian vacation. In fact, if you are at all interested in history, you should always plan to visit this museum along with historical sites on your Egypt vacation packages. With so much history and so many artifacts to peruse, it could take several vacations to Egypt to get a thorough look at everything in the museum.

Spending two or three days in Cairo before heading off to one of the country’s other popular tourist destinations, will allow you to not only enjoy the city’s vibrant culture, but it will also give you time to visit the city’s most famous tourist attractions, including the Egyptian Museum.

Take a Felucca Ride on the River

Of course, not all of your time spent on Egypt vacation packages should be spent in the throes of history lessons. Feluccas (traditional sailboats) have been used to traverse the Nile River for thousands of years, and they’re a great way to see the city and surrounding areas from the water. Whether you’re staying in Cairo, Luxor, or Aswan you can choose to add a short felucca ride to your Egypt trip.

From Cairo, Luxor or Aswan, take a sunset cruise in a felucca and see the cities light up as the sun goes down. From Aswan, you can take a longer felucca cruise up the Nile River, or you can choose an all inclusive river cruise on a luxury cruise ship, depending on what you want to do and experience during your Egypt trip.

A cruise on one of the large five-star cruise ships is a magical experience which you will well and truly never forget. These vessels are akin to an all inclusive 5-Star hotel, With all the amenities you could possibly want, Including things like a large outdoor pool, a fitness center, and etc. For a truly wonderful vacation in Egypt, and the chance to discover the gems of the Nile Valley in absolute comfort and style, A five star all inclusive Nile cruise should definitely be on your bucket list of things to do in Egypt.

Enjoy Hidden History in Deir el-Medina

Another great place to visit during your Egypt vacation package is the village where the people who built the temples and pyramids of Ancient Egypt lived, Deir el-Medina. Located on the west bank of the Nile River, “Tucked away in a little valley under the western cliffs,” you’ll find one of Egypt’s best-kept and most fascinating secrets.

If you’re drawn to Egypt vacations because you’ve always wondered how the pyramids were constructed and how the people who built them lived, then you owe it to yourself to explore Deir el-Medina. You’ll love finding out all about the lives of the ordinary Egyptian men and women who created some of history’s most pictured, filmed, and talked-about structures.

The preserved papyrus texts on the lives of the people who lived in Deir el-Medina are incredibly detailed. Not only will you learn about how they went about their daily tasks, but you can also learn about intriguing details like their love affairs and relationships. If you choose to visit this site, be sure to visit the tomb of a man named Peshedu where you will see a mural depicting his afterlife with his wife, cultivating fields as they did in life.

While a lot of the surviving ruins and temples in Egypt are dedicated to the stories of pharaohs and religion, in Deir el-Medina, you can learn the stories of ordinary people. It’s a wonderful addition to Egypt vacation packages for history buffs and people interested in not only the pyramids but also the lives of the people who built them.

Aswan · Egypt

Would highly recommend

We were met at the airport by a representative, and there was someone to help us every step of the way. We had some early starts, but the trips were all brilliant, once in a lifetime stuff. The organisation throughout was excellent, and we had the same guide throughout.

More information about egypt.

Egypt  is famed for its ancient civilization; the name alone evokes images of  pharaohs  and giant  pyramids.  A transcontinental country, linking  North Africa  to the  Middle East ,  Egypt  is bordered by  Libya, Suda, Israel , and the  Gaza Strip  and has coastlines on the abundant  Red Sea  and the  Mediterranean.  Its capital is  Cairo , where visitors can experience the splendor and mystery of the  Great Pyramids,  perhaps  Egypt’s  most iconic sight. Other important cities include the port city of  Alexandria,  located on the northern coast, and  Aswan , a city on the  River Nile , known for its archaeological sites such as the  Philae temple complex.  From the dusty, dry lands of the  Sahara Desert  to the sunny shores of the  Red Sea,  world-renowned for its coral reefs,  Egypt  is a country of contrasts. The national language is  Arabic , spoken by the majority of the  95 million  inhabitants. Much of the population is concentrated in cities, towns and rural communities along the fertile  Nile Valley  and  Nile Delta,  the only arable land in the country. On a  holiday to Egypt  you can expect to be greeted by warm hospitality; locals will often invite visitors to share strong  Arabic  coffee with them.

History of Egypt

Undoubtedly,  Egypt  boasts one of the longest histories in the world, spanning back to at least the  4th millennium BC.  Sometimes cited as the ‘ Cradle of Civilisation’,  the country appeals to travelers for its ancient monuments, which are most abundant around the fertile  Nile Valley , and include treasures such as the  Giza Necropolis , the  Valley of the Kings  and the iconic  Great Sphinx .  Ancient Egypt , the famous epoch in history, still immortalized today in literature and film, is heralded for its amazing progression in language, writing, architecture, organized religion, agriculture and government, with the earliest known  hieroglyphics  estimated to date to around  3200 BC,  and the first pyramid structures thought to have been built in around  2700 BC.  The first unified  Ancient Egyptian  kingdom began in  3150 BC  and reigning dynasties continued for almost  3000 years , with different kingdoms and intermediate periods within this time frame. The most well-known  pharaohs,  such as  Tutankhamun  and  Ramesses II  were present in the period of the  New Kingdom , between  1550  and  1070 BC.  During this unique time in the country’s history,  Egyptian  culture, religion, and traditions flourished. Concepts and practices, such as the  after-life ,  mummification  and  cosmic order  were popular at the time and still ignite the imaginations of historians and everyday people in the present day. Fast-forward to today and  Egypt  is a predominantly  Muslim  country, although it was an early center of  Christianity , before the  7th century.  Despite a turbulent history of occupation, the nation declared independence from the  British Empire  in  1922,  although the influence of the empire remained until the revolution of  1952.  For travelers wishing to experience one of the world’s oldest civilizations, a  package holiday to Egypt  allows visitors to walk in the footsteps of the  pharaohs  and immerse themselves in the splendor of times gone by .

Nature in Egypt

More than  90%  of  Egypt’s  land consists of desert areas, with an extremely arid climate and a near-impossible challenge of growing crops or sustaining life outside of the  Nile Valley  or in the rare oases such as the  Siwa Oasis  and the tropical paradise of the  Dakhla Oasis  in the  Western Desert.  The other-worldly sand dunes of  Egypt’s  deserts once acted as protection to the kingdom of the  Pharaohs  from the threat of western invaders. The urban centers of  Cairo ,  Alexandria , and  Aswan  contrast with the idyllic  Red Sea  resorts of  Hurghada  and  Sharm el Sheik , popular with holidaymakers for their up-scale hotels and scuba-diving opportunities. In fact, the  coral reefs  of the  Red Sea  are some of the most biodiverse in the world, and the exceptionally clear waters are perfect for admiring the marine life which inhabits the reefs such as  Clownfish ,  Pufferfish, Butterflyfish , the impressive  Lionfish  and the colorful  Emperor Angelfish.  Perhaps the most famous natural attraction in the country is the mighty  River Nile , the longest river in the world, which spans the country from  north  to  south . The yearly floods of the river, which historically fertilised the  Nile Valley  and nourished precious crops, has been halted since the completion of the  Aswan Dam  in  1970,  changing the agricultural practices in the area ever since. Today,  Nile river cruises  are an extremely popular choice for visitors wanting to experience the changing landscapes of the  Nile Valley  and the historical monuments and sights along the route. In contrast, the backdrop of the snow-covered  Sinai  mountains in the peninsula of the same name provides a unique sight in an otherwise warm, sunny and dry climate.

Sights in Egypt

Egypt  is a sightseers paradise, with a multitude of exciting sights to discover. At the top of most lists is the  Giza Pyramid Complex,  on the outskirts of the capital of  Cairo.  Here, visitors can explore the three great pyramids, the site of the workers' town, where the builders and engineers of the pyramids lived, and the famous  Great Sphinx.  This complex is considered the oldest Ancient Wonder in the world, and, amazingly, the only one of the wonders still in existence today. Through sheer workmanship and labor, these great pyramids were constructed to house the remains of the famous  Pharaohs  and to store the items that were considered necessary for the deceased to successfully survive in the  after-life.  Located close to the  Sudanese  border, the temples of  Abu Simbel  are another of the remnants of  Ancient Egypt  considered to be an unmissable sight on a  trip to Egypt.  Constructed by  Ramesses II , the temples are carved into the rock face and feature statues of gigantic human figures and intricate hieroglyphic carvings. Finally, the  Valley of the Kings  stands out as a must-see destination for the significant role its excavation has played in the understanding of the ancient  Egyptian  civilization. It was the main burial place of the most famous royal figures of the  New Kingdom,  and since its discovery at the end of the  18th century,  and the subsequent discovery of the tomb of  Tutankhamun  on the site ,  it has been shrouded in much mystery and intrigue. A  tour of Egypt  is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the country’s fascinating history and heritage and to experience the sheer scale and majesty of a number of the world’s most famous archaeological sights.

Egyptian Culture

Back in the era of the  Pharaohs ,  Egypt  led the way in the arts, creating the first synthetic color pigment, ‘ Egyptian Blue ’, and inventing various unique design codes and practices. Today, the country is one of the Arabic  cultural  trendsetters,  and a leader in the cinema industry throughout the  Middle East. Egypt  also has a rich musical tradition, with influences from both the  Mediterranean  and  Africa , and is famously the birthplace of  belly dancing , the characteristic dance of the region. In literary fields,  Egypt  has stood out for producing the first  Arabic  language writer to win the  Nobel Prize in Literature , the author  Naguib Mahfouz,  who was awarded the prize in  1988  for his numerous works, many of which are set in  Egypt . Of course, with such an impressive history, the culture of the country has strong links to the past and these elements are proudly showcased in its grandiose cultural institutions, such as the colossal  Egyptian Museum  in  Cairo.

If you dream of immersing yourself in the worlds oldest civilisation, walking in the footsteps of the the greats, such as  Tutankhamun  and  Ramesses II,  and exploring a country rich in natural beauty, from the  Red Sea  to the  Sahara Desert , a  holiday to Egypt  is an unforgettable experience, and the perfect choice for lovers of history, nature and culture.

Popular Egypt Travel Styles

Sunrise at beach in Marsa Alam, Egypt

December to February are the most popular times to visit Egypt, but we recommend visiting in the shoulder season of spring and fall, specifically from March to May and September to November.

From March to May and September to November, you can enjoy more comfortable temperatures on tours to Egypt. The spring and fall is much cooler than in summer, not as cold as winter, and also not as crowded in the more popular destinations around the country, such as Cairo and Luxor.

While these months are our favorites, Egypt surprises travelers by being a year-round destination offering more beyond the ancient sites in Cairo. You can relax at a Red Sea resort in summer or enjoy a Nile cruise down to Aswan in winter, and our guide on the best time to visit Egypt can help you find the right month for your trip.

From the bustling streets of Cairo to the ancient ruins decorating Luxor, the gorgeous waters of the Red Sea at Hurghada to the Coptic churches in Alexandria, there are endless possibilities to explore on tours of Egypt.

Here are a few of the best places to visit in Egypt :

  • Cairo: The capital of Egypt and a bridge between the layers of the country’s history, Cairo is energetic and colorful. From elegant mosques to vibrant market lanes, Cairo gives you access to contemporary life and acts as a gateway to the ancient world.
  • Luxor: Often called the world’s greatest open-air museum, Luxor displays its history along the contemporary streets spreading through the oasis on the Nile’s riverbanks.
  • Aswan: If Cairo is a burst of endless energy, Aswan is its serene opposite. Acting as the bridge between Egypt and continental Africa, the city is a breath of uniqueness among colorful villages, gardens, and a mixture of ancient Nubian and Egyptian heritage.

From visiting ancient temples in Luxor to climbing into the Great Pyramid of Giza, sailing on the Nile to birdwatching in Aswan, here are some of the top things to do in Egypt :

  • Whether on horseback, camel-back, or by foot, visit the Egyptian pyramids
  • Enjoy the beauty of the Nile and the surrounding lushness on a luxury cruise
  • Set sail along the Nile River on a traditional felucca boat
  • Wander the marketplaces and bazaars in search of traditional items from tea sets to lights, clothing to iconography
  • Snorkel or scuba on the Red Sea, exploring a number of world-renowned spots known for their pristine marine life and coral
  • Sample traditional Egyptian and Nubian cuisine with a private cooking class
  • View the stunning scenery and history from the sky on a hot-air-balloon

Whether looking at Egypt tour packages on the Red Sea coastline, that include the desert cities, or that visit exciting places like Alexandria, here are some of our favorite things to see in Egypt:

  • Pyramids of Giza, Giza
  • The Great Sphinx, Giza
  • Valley of the Kings, Luxor
  • Valley of the Queens, Luxor
  • Abu Simbel, Abu Simbel
  • Khan el-Khalili, Cairo
  • Mosque of Ibn Tulun, Cairo

Egypt is known for its ancient ruins and artifacts. With monuments dedicated to pharaohs and queens, as well as museums overflowing with sensational heirlooms and relics preserved for over 5,000 years, Egypt can take you back in time. Whether on an Egypt trip for seniors , traveling with kids , or looking for adventure, you can experience how the remnants of ancient civilizations have survived while exploring the layers of culture that supports contemporary life in Egypt.

A Nile River cruise is typically three or four nights. When starting in Luxor and traveling down to Aswan, it generally takes four nights. When traveling from Aswan to Luxor, the Nile River cruise is typically three nights. No matter the direction of your travel, a cruise stops to visit Edfu Temple and Kom Ombo Temple. You can include a Nile Cruise during luxury Egypt tours to enjoy the full experience.

It is safe to travel to Egypt.

Popular destinations like the Pyramids of Giza or Luxor are world-renowned attractions, and crime is generally low around these areas. Like anywhere in the world, petty theft, such as pickpocketing, can occur in populated areas, so stay aware of your belongings.

During trips in Egypt, follow the guidance of your local travel expert who can give you more detailed advice on ways to stay safe and comfortable.

Egypt Tours, Vacations and Travel Packages

visit egypt travel packages

With a population of approximately 90,000,000 people, Egypt is located in the northeast corner of the African continent on the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered to the northeast by Palestine and Israel , the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south and Libya to the west. The geography of Egypt can be divided into four different regions: the Nile Valley and Delta, the Western Desert, the Eastern Desert and the Sinai Peninsula.

Our Egypt Tours and Vacations

Egypt, probably the world’s oldest civilization, is a treasure trove for history and archaeology enthusiasts who undertake an Egypt tour. It has borrowed from Greek, Roman, Christian and Arab influences over time. But even the less enthusiastic will marvel at what is on offer. Imagine a country basically a desert totally redeemed by the River Nile which runs through a fertile well-watered lush valley.

What are the top places to see and things to do in Egypt?

This is a very large and sprawling city with an abundance of exciting places to visit on Egypt vacations. Probably your first one will be the Egyptian Museum and the best place to delve into Egypt’s amazing history and past glory.  It contains one of the world’s most important collections of ancient artefacts and the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities.  The Giza Pyramids on the outskirts of Cairo are the only remaining one of the Ancient Seven Wonders of the World. They are 4,000 years old and are amazing because of their extraordinary shape, perfectly made structure, and sheer size. For a true Cairo experience, visit the Khan Al Khalili Bazaar with its mediaeval flavour and shops found in narrow lanes. The Cairo Citadel is a mediaeval Islamic fortification located high on a hill with amazing views of the city. It is now a well-preserved historic site comprising mosques, palaces, and museums.

Central Egypt

T his is the heartland of Ancient Egypt and an excellent area on Egypt tours to explore history and marvel at the wonders of a bygone time. 

You can start with the Luxor Temple, a temple complex located on the east bank of the Nile River in the city of Luxor (ancient Thebes) constructed in approximately 1400 BC. It may have been where many of the kings of Egypt were crowned. Karnak is an outstanding complex of sanctuaries, temples, chapels, and obelisks. The complex is a vast open-air site and includes the Karnak Open Air Museum. It is believed to be the second-most visited historical site in Egypt after the pyramids. The Valley of the Kings is where, from the 16th to the 11th Centuries BC, tombs were constructed for Pharaohs. It has been the site of royal burials since around 2100 BC.

Southern Egypt

A bu Simbel is where you will find two enormous rock temples in a village in Nubia only rediscovered at the beginning of the 19th Century. The twin temples of Abu Simbe l were originally carved out of a mountainside in the 13th Century BC during the reign of the Pharaoh Ramses II. They are a monument to him and his Queen Nefertari. The whole complex was relocated to above the Aswan High Dam as it was in danger of being flooded by the creation of Lake Nasser. The amazing Aswan High Dam was built across the Nile in Aswan between 1960 and 1970 AD and had a significant effect on the economy of Egypt due to its ability to increase water storage.

Northern Egypt

Saint Catherine's Monastery, on the Sinai Peninsula where, according to the Old Testament, Moses received the Ten Commandments, lies at the foot of Mount Sinai, near the town of Saint Catherine. The monastery is one of the oldest working Christian monasteries in the world. It contains the world's oldest continually operating library and houses priceless works of art including mosaics, The Egyptian city of Alexandria is not only famous for its spectacular location on the Mediterranean Sea but also, for the man who built it to rule the world for thousands of years ago, Alexander the Great Highlights here include the Bibliotheca Alexandrina , a huge library with a unique design and the El Montazah Palace, once a summer getaway for the King. 

What about cruises on the Nile River?

This is certainly the most relaxing way to view Central Egypt’s treasures. Almost all Nile cruises sail between Luxor and Aswan in both directions and usually take a minimum of 4 days one way. There are cruises from Cairo to Luxor and Aswan which last as long as 12 to 13 days one way. Most Nile cruises visit the popular sites of Esna, Edfu, and Kom Ombo before disembarking in either Luxor or Aswan. There are a lot of choices as it has been recorded that there are around 200 Nile River Cruise ships. These range from traditional paddle steamers to luxurious modern cruise ships. Most cruise companies employ the services of an Egyptologist, who will be your guide around the ancient sites you visit along the way. Modern vessels usually have a swimming pool while some provide nightly entertainment in the form of belly dancing shows. At night, many of the temples and monuments are illuminated and the sight of them from the river can be breathtaking on Egypt vacations.

What about Egyptian resorts?

Hurghada is the main tourist centre on trips to Egypt and is known for the excellent diving and snorkelling available on the Red Sea Coast on an Egypt tour. Visitors choose Hurghada on a trip to Egypt as it offers an excellent beach vacation. The waters here are clear and calm for much of the year making it a popular water sports destination. Located at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Sharm El Sheik, once a simple fishing village, present-day Sharm El Sheik is a well-known port and resort town and is regarded as one of the finest diving spots in the world on an Egypt vacation.

Egypt Travel Information

When is the best time to visit egypt.

Egypt has two seasons. It enjoys a mild winter which lasts from October to April and a hot summer from May to September. It should be borne in mind that in summer, the heat can be uncomfortable. If considering a stay on the Red Sea coast, June to September is a good time to visit the beach resorts. Despite being the peak of summer, temperatures on the coast are much cooler than those of the rest of Egypt.

What types of tours are available in Egypt?

The ideal itinerary to really enjoy an Egypt tour and discover its charms is to combine a stopover in Cairo followed by a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan. Add on if required an excursion to  Abu Simbel. Cruises are available for all tastes and budgets. Should you wish to relax after all that, consider a few days at a Red Sea resort to complete your Egypt travel. 

What else should I know about travelling in Egypt?

If taking a Nile cruise, both Luxor and Aswan are easily accessible from Cairo with regular flights daily. You can visit Alexandria from Cairo on a short train journey allowing you to see the countryside en route on an Egypt vacation. Regular flights operate between Cairo and the Red Sea resorts.

Can i drink tap water in Egypt?

Don't drink the tap water - it is highly chlorinated. However, with enough time in Egypt, you could potentially grow accustomed to the water. This doesn't mean that the tap water is polluted, it simply means that you are not used to it, and you might get stomach problems. This happened to most people when they visit a country for the first time. They were simply not used to water there. It's a similar situation here. It is advisable to drink Bottled water during your entire holiday. That is why it is strongly advisable that you don't drink the tap water, and use it only for washing and brushing your teeth.

What is the best time to visit Egypt 2024 ?

Enjoy Egypt Tours From September until March. It is the perfect time when the weather is good and mild. From September until mid-November, when it is very nice and the temperatures are pleasant for all activities - around 25 C to 15 C. mid-Nov until the end of February is wintertime when temperatures during the day are around 12 or 15 C, and at night can drop to about 7 or 8 C. In March and April, the weather is still so nice and travelers can enjoy the Easter vacation. From May to September is the summer season. Spending summertime in a desert climate does not appeal to most travelers. Average daytime temperatures hover in the high 80s and low to mid-90s, although they can jump up into three digits in the South as in Luxor and Aswan. Summer is really hot here, prices go down and it is a good chance for travelers with a tight budget.

How is the weather in Egypt?

It is usually hot and sunny. winter falls between November and January, and the peak of the summer months is between June and August. Winters are generally mild, although temperatures can fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius) at night. In the Western Desert. Cairo and areas of the Nile Delta may experience a few rainy days during winter. Summers can be unbearably hot, especially in the desert and other areas of the country's interior. In Cairo, average summer temperatures regularly exceed 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius), while the record high for Luxor and Aswan, popular tourist destinations on the banks of the River Nile, is 110 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius).

Is Egypt safe to travel to ?

Safety and security are our first and foremost concerns! Egypt is a very safe country with a low crime rate. Now with the coronavirus outbreak, accommodations and sightseeing nationwide have finalized sterilization and disinfection in light of the Egyptian government's efforts to implement precautionary measures against the COVID-19. In addition, our company has followed the same procedures to make all our staff, guides, and drivers are well-trained with the current events to prevent and stop the spread of this outbreak. Traveling the world is a joyful experience and we want to do our part to keep the anticipation stress-free.

What are the best things to do in Egypt?

There are many things to do in Egypt during your visit depending on your interests and character. Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, and Aswan Nile cruise must be your first priority if you are a history and culture lover. You must visit the pyramids of Giza, enjoy a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan and enjoy visiting the most important tourist attractions in Luxor and Aswan. You can visit the city of Hurghada, Marsa Alam, or Sharm el-Sheikh Red Sea for relaxation and enjoy many activities there such as diving, snorkeling, sunbathing, or swimming. You may like to go on a safari trip in the western desert if you are an adventurer. Many other activities are available in every single Egyptian city

Should I visit Egypt during Summer?

The high season for tourism is all year with winter and spring being peak season for cultural travels with lots of sightseeing. Weather in Egypt is perfect for many kinds of tourism, and if coming in June, July, and August, head for the seaside resorts. Those months are very warm with temperatures that can reach around 45C. and the humidity is about 70 to 80%, but it is bearable with the sea and large swimming pools nearby. So the period of the high summer season is also a bit busy as hotels fill up with tourists from all over the world looking for a bargain, lots of sunshine, diving, snorkeling, etc. It is also a primary vacation time in Europe. If you come in the deep summer season you can still enjoy it because you can always sightsee early in the morning and go again at night when the sunsets. You will definitely need good sunscreen and a lot of liquids to drink with a nice hat on your head. Summer is a good time for people looking for good rates in accommodation and other services.

What is the dress code in Egypt?

Egypt is a Muslim country and the dress code is towards the conservative side, especially for women. That being said, we are used to seeing travelers from all over the world. My suggestion would be to wear light clothes and not to wear short shorts, short skirts and alike to avoid the occasional unwanted stare. But it's really up to you. When you visit religious places (synagogues, churches, and mosques) you do need to cover your shoulders and wear over the knee dresses, if you are planning to wear one of course. If you plan to attend the Nile dinner cruise, there is no need for formal wear unless you want to make that night a special night! Also, you will be sharing this experience with other travelers so you can dress however you feel most comfortable.

How to get visa to visit Egypt?

You can get your visa when you arrive at Cairo Airport. It is an easy process for USA, UK, Canadian, Australian and European citizens. The visa is simply a stamp (like a mail or postage stamp) that you buy from the visa office, at the port of entry just before the immigration booth. The visa will cost you $25 US Dollars and after buying it; you just stick it on any empty page on your passport. Once you have bought your visa you then stand in line to get your passport stamped by the immigration officer. You can also apply for E-Visa via the official electronic visa portal: www.visa2egypt.gov.eg

How many days in Egypt is enough?

Your Egypt Tours travel agency recommends two weeks so that you can enjoy the temples and tombs of Luxor and Aswan, explore the sights of Cairo, and relax in the Red Sea islands and nature reserves.

What is the best Nile River cruise?

There are many Nile cruises. Not to name one but your choice depends on many things to put in mind such as the number of nights you want to spend on the cruiser, your budget, and the standard of the Nile cruise. We recommend you choose a 5-star luxury Nile cruise, and if you are looking for a private Nile River cruise you can choose Dahabiya cruises, it is only for the small-group tour, about 15 people. Most cruises have. There is another way of cruising the Nile, which is the Felucca boat. It is traditional and charming but it is cheap as long as it will be ok to sleep on the deck exposed to mosquitos and most of these boats do not have a toilet

When is best time of the year to travel to Egypt?

The best time to visit Egypt is generally from October to April where it is suitable for outdoor activities and sightseeing.

Your Egypt Tours Reviews

Travel has helped us to understand the meaning of life and it has helped us become better people. Each time we travel, we see the world with new eyes.

Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact them, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Cairo. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.

I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2). We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention

  • Nile River Cruise:  Sail past the ancient tombs and temples on a cruise ship or a dahabiya (small wooden ship), a wonderful way to see Egypt. Cruises usually sail between Aswan and Luxor.
  • The White Desert:  Talk a walk on the moon in this strange desert landscape where uniquely shaped limestone rocks jut out in weird formations. Located in the Western Desert of Egypt.

  • When packing for a trip to Egypt , be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and comfortable shoes. You'll also need a light jacket or sweater for the cooler evenings.

  • There are several ways that you can get around while travelling in Egypt . The most popular way is by taking taxis, as they are relatively inexpensive and readily available. Another option is taking the bus, which is a great way to see more of the country, but can be quite crowded during peak times. 
  • There are also boat cruises available which are a great way to see some major sights along the Nile River such as the Pyramids of Giza and Luxor Temple. 
  • When shopping in Egypt , be sure to bargain with the shopkeepers. This is expected, and it's how you'll get the best prices on souvenirs such as carpets, copperware, spices, and perfume.

Tipping, or baksheesh, is a common practice in Egypt and is considered a way to show appreciation for good service. It’s important to note that while tipping is not mandatory, it is expected in many situations, and it’s a good idea to carry small bills and change for this purpose.

Here are some standard tipping practices in Egypt:

  • Tour guides: Tipping your tour guide at the end of your tour is customary. The amount will depend on the length of the tour and the level of service provided, but a good rule of thumb is around 10-20% of the total cost of the tour.
  • Hotel staff: Tipping hotel staff, such as bellhops and housekeeping, is familiar. A small tip of 10-20 Egyptian pounds per day is appropriate.
  • Drivers: If you hire a driver, it’s customary to tip them at the end of your trip. The amount will depend on the length of the journey and the level of service provided, but a good rule of thumb is around 50-100 Egyptian pounds per day.
  • Restaurants: It’s common to leave a tip of around 10-15% of the total bill at restaurants. Some restaurants may include a service charge on the bill, so check before tipping.

In summary, tipping or baksheesh is a common practice in Egypt, and it’s important to have small bills and changes on hand. The amount to tip will depend on the service provided.

Despite the fact that true crime and violence are rare in Egypt, public catcalling is widespread, and women traveling alone are regularly harassed. Travel in groups of three or more people if at all feasible, and stay on well-lit streets. Despite the fact that the situation is considerably safer than it was previously and in comparison to other Middle Eastern nations, it may be inconvenient in some areas. It is ideal for a location to be more touristic and crowded.

The greatest time to take a Nile River cruise is between October and April, based on Egypt's climate throughout the year and the fact that Upper Egypt is the hottest region of Egypt, "Luxor & Aswan," where you may enjoy your Nile River Cruise and the Nile's majesty.

The more time and effort you are willing to spend in Cairo, the better. Cairo is a large metropolis with a diverse range of attractions that almost covers all tastes and interests. If you just have three days, you may see the Giza Pyramids, the Great Sphinx, Coptic Cairo, the Egyptian Museum, as well as many other attractions.

It's a fantastic chance to see the majority of Egypt from the top of the ship's deck and recreate the first European explorations of Egypt on a boat. During a 12-day cruise, you'll experience the river ride between Cairo and Luxor, as well as the river nature and sites on both sides of the Nile.

Dahabiya is a well-known Egyptian Nile cruise destination. It has a higher premium service and attractive style, and taking a Dahabiya cruise will allow you to experience the Nile in a discreet and calm manner. Its ship deck is spacious and provides a beautiful view while eating breakfast in the morning. It is given the Arabic name Dahabiya, which harkens back to a time when the Nile Valley was visited by Europe's aristocracy in ships that resembled this one.

They are known as feluccas, and they have a number of distinguishing characteristics that set them apart from other more opulent and beautiful vessels. Egyptians would take a felucca ride when they needed to travel on a short excursion or simply cross the Nile River. The felucca is a tiny boat with a triangular sail and a smaller sail than a ship.

Luxor and Cairo are a long way apart, yet Luxor is a must-see. You are not, however, obligated to do so. It all depends on how interested you are in Egyptian history. Temples and historically significant structures may be found all across the city, which is intricately connected. It is known across the globe as the world's largest open-air museum, housing one-third of the world's historical monuments.

The Nubian marketplaces are enjoyed by everybody, and tourists frequently purchase gifts from Aswan's local markets. Even Egyptians purchase gifts for their family from Nubian marketplaces in order to support local business. People like the comfort and rich culture of Aswan, but they also adore the historic ruins of Luxor.

Sharm El Sheikh is more than just a beautiful, sophisticated tourist resort. It is one of the most well-known vacation spots in the world, with visitors coming from all over the globe each year. Several of Sharm El Sheikh's most well-known sights and attractions, including Mount Sinai, the Red Sea, and the Sinai desert, are all part of Egypt's rich past.

Hurghada is a resort city on the Red Sea. And Hurghada has a lot to offer both sea sports aficionados and those who just want to relax on the beach or spend time with their family! It's hot and humid in the summer, but it's charming and welcoming to all types of visitors in the winter.

The Giza Plateau, just outside of Cairo, is home to the most famous of all ancient structures. Khufu's pyramid, along with the other two great pyramids of Giza, was built in the Sahara Desert near modern-day Cairo.

This charming city on Egypt's North Coast offers a wealth of exciting activities and historical attractions. Taking deep breaths while staring out over the Mediterranean Sea, is just an endearing and beautiful experience. Alexandria, Egypt's second-largest city has a thriving port on its 32 kilometers of beachfront.

Obtain a duplicate vaccination certificate. • Make physical copies of your three passports and travel tickets. • Bring any medications you're taking with you, as well as proof of prescription. • Bring a swimsuit with you to Hurghada. • Take an enjoyable book or novel with you to read. For the evening, don't forget to bring a jacket. • Don't forget to put on some sunscreen and sunglasses. • Bring a fair amount of cash with you • Wear a pair of comfy walking shoes. • Remember to bring a camera and a phone charger with you. • Bring a phone charger in case you need to charge your phone while out and about. Let your bank know you'll be traveling to Egypt and utilizing an ATM or credit card internationally. • Use a bank or a reputed money exchange provider to exchange your money. It isn't from the street since it may be a scam. You will get a better exchange rate at the airport. • In your journal, keep a daily account of your vacation to Egypt; you'll occasionally look back on it later. • When you arrive, buy a local SIM card and top it up with data. • As previously said, please dress comfortably for the day tour, especially for desert journeys. • Follow your tour guide's advice and spend the most of your time outside your hotel with other people. • Keep your admission tickets in a secure location for future use and happy memories. Always inquire about the greatest photo options with your tour guide. • Drink lots of water throughout your tour, especially in the Valley of Kings, to prevent dehydration. • Invest in bottled water. Find out where the bathrooms are situated at each stop before you go on your adventure. • Always have toilet paper in your backpack. • If you're looking for gifts, haggle over the price. • If someone provides you anything or a service that you don't need, remember the Egyptian expression "La Shokran," which means "No Thank you." • Inform your bank that you will be traveling to Egypt and will be using an ATM or credit card. • Exchange your money at a bank or a reputable exchange service. It's not from the street since it may be a trick. • Keep a daily record of your trip to Egypt in your diary; you'll enjoy reading back on it later. • Purchase a local SIM card and top it up with data when you arrive. • Please dress comfortably for the day excursion, especially for desert travels, as I previously stated. • Pay heed to your tour guide's instructions and avoid being alone for the most of your time outside your hotel. • Keep your entry tickets in a safe place for future reference and pleasant recollections.

Don'ts • Do not drink tapwater. • Do not disrespect, damage, or pollute any memorials or monuments. • Don't take pictures of individuals without their consent; "a simple smile while carrying your camera should be enough to let them understand you're taking pictures of them." • Instead of providing money to begging children, give them pencils or any small gift, like seen above. · When visiting sacred sites, avoid wearing shoes. • Never point your feet in the direction of another person's face. • Drinking alcoholic beverages in public settings should be discouraged because it is illegal. • Accept no free presents since "nothing comes for free." • Avoid purchasing pricey items on the street, phones for example. • Make sure you don't miss any of the trips; they're all unique. • Avoid kissing or any form of intimacy in public. • If you don't have a tour guide or someone who knows what they're doing, don't cross the street alone; alternatively, ask a police officer around you or a local. • If strangers approach you in a way you don’t like, avoid them and reply "La Shokran." • Keep a safe distance from street animals (cats and dogs) and don't interact with them because most of them aren't vaccinated. If you did, please wash your hands afterwards.
