A Week on the Nile
A new and unique luxury cruise from Cairo and the impressive Pyramids to the little known Amarna, especially created to give you a taste of Egypt and its exceptional history and culture
Egypt excites the child in us all. It brings to life everything that Hollywood has ever shown us – everything we’ve ever seen in a museum: the Pyramids, the Pharaohs and a history of biblical proportions. Embrace your inner Indiana Jones and embark on one of our action-packed Egypt tours.
Travellers have been attracted to Egypt by its magic and mystery for centuries. In ancient times, they came from the south along the Nile into Egypt. Here they were met by Ramses’ mighty temples at Abu Simbel, which were designed to intimidate and astound. Travelling northwards, one magnificent temple followed another and climaxed with mighty Pyramids. Many of our cruises in Egypt sail the Nile route, following in the footsteps of the 19th-century excursionists. This includes our once in a lifetime trip The Original Nile by Royal Steamer.
Escorted tours to Egypt allow you to discover architecture rich in history. During our Egypt trips to the Pyramids & the Nile, you can explore the spellbinding sites of the colossal Pyramids, the Sphinx at Giza, the hieroglyph-lined Karnak Temple and Valley of the Kings tombs in Luxor. You can also take a closer look at the remarkable findings discovered by archaeologists and tomb raiders in Cairo’s Egyptian Museum.
Egypt trips to less-visited sites such as the home of ‘heretic pharaoh’ Akhenaten and Nubia give insatiable travellers the opportunity to delve deeper into the story of ancient Egypt. Our Khartoum to Cairo tour offers a different perspective than that offered on the usual tourist trails.
To most enjoy one of our fantastic guided tours or cruises in Egypt, we advise travelling between February and April or between October and November. At both these times of year, you can explore the Pyramids and take a dip in the Red Sea in lovely warm temperatures.
With a wealth of historic landmarks, scenic landscapes and cultural cuisine to discover, Egypt trips are suitable for all holidaymakers. If you like to learn about the places you visit, all our escorted tours to Egypt have expert tour guides that offer in-depth knowledge of the area’s landmarks.
Many of our Egypt guided tours do not charge supplements for single travellers, making them ideal for solo holidaymakers, couples and groups. Our trips are a great way to meet people with similar interests in travel and culture.

With more than 40 years’ experience in providing travellers with the most unique and special voyages, you can be sure you’ll be embarking on the journey of a lifetime.
