The fables of Ancient Egypt — towering pyramids and mummies surrounded by gold — are familiar to many travellers, and exploring these wonders is a life goal for many. There's more to Egypt than its past civilisations, though, and the country’s bustling souqs, sandy beaches and iconic River Nile provides plenty to see and do — whether you're planning a family holiday, a honeymoon or a river cruise.

Our travel guides can help you plan your trip from start to finish, providing advice for first-time visitors and information on the country’s many attractions.
