What our specialists say...

Egypt offers the ideal beach and culture holiday, with a wealth of history in Cairo and Red Sea destinations that boast top class hotels and excellent beaches. There is time in Cairo to visit the various impressive pyramid complexes, before losing yourself in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. From a superb vantage point over the city, the Citadel houses the striking Muhammad Ali mosque, while not far away is the vibrant souq of the Khan El Khalili. After all this activity, the Red Sea is the perfect place to relax, enjoy fresh seafood and try some diving.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Cairo
  • Hurghada
  • El Quseir
