Egypt is a truly fascinating country steeped in history and charm. This fun and varied trip combines awe-inspiring monuments and ancient world treasures with fun and relaxation on the Nile and by the Red Sea - the perfect introduction to a captivating land.
We delve in to the country's glorious past as we visit Giza's Great Pyramids, see the riches of Tutankhamun and visit the grand temples and tombs at ancient Thebes.
These sights (and our great guides) never fail to captivate children and adults alike as they bring these ancient sites back to life. Upstream, we experience Aswan's vibrant Nubian culture, relax on a traditional felucca sail boat on the Nile and there is even an optional visit to the spectacular temples at Abu Simbel.
Towards the end of our trip we head to the Red Sea coast with its sandy beaches, clear waters and colourful reefs. There is time here for various excursions or you can simply relax - the choice is yours.
