Pyramids rise above sun-baked sands. The Sphinx stares, unblinking, into a relentlessly blue sky. Boats wend their way down the waters of the Nile. Traders hawk their wares in the dusty bazaars. In many ways, Egypt seems timeless, unchanging. However, modern politics are very present in this ancient land and our specialists continue to visit Egypt to gauge the atmosphere and levels of service available throughout the country.
In our experience it remains a friendly and hospitable place, and our experts can craft a tailored itinerary to help you explore this dynamic destination. A cruise down the Nile is still one of the most effective ways to see Egypt, including the archeological treasures around Aswan and Luxor. But there is more to see on an Egypt holiday than the ancient sites — coral reefs in the clear waters of the Red Sea, afternoon tea at the Victorian-era Old Cataract Hotel, medieval sites in the souks of Cairo.
