Egypt Holidays

Explore the beauty of Egypt

Egypt is famous for pyramids, Pharaohs, minarets and temples, but don’t believe for one second that it is living in the past. This is country of modern amenities offering endless opportunities for discovery, relaxation, luxury entertainment, and the chance to enjoy fine Egyptian cuisine floating on the Nile. Of course the pyramids and ancient structures of Giza are a huge tourist draw, but there are also myriad ancient attractions throughout the country. The Red Sea Coast is the home to lavish resorts and perfect sandy beaches.

Egypt is truly iconic, bringing to mind the Nile, the pyramids, the sphinx and the minarets.

But this country is a cultural behemoth that offers so much more than half a dozen ancient clichés. It also boasts a number of impressive resorts on the Red Sea. Found at the very north of Africa, just south of Turkey and east of Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Egypt is the home of one of the world’s great ancient civilisations and there is a great cultural pride that comes with that.

Why visit Egypt?

  • The Red Sea resorts offer superb luxury and amazing opportunities for scuba diving – it’s one of the world’s premier stretches of beachfront
  • Try haggling at one of the bazaars; if you’re looking for a real Egyptian shopping experience there is nothing that quite like it
  • Visit the famous Pyramids of Giza and the other iconic ancient sites
  • Take a cruise down the Nile and get acquainted with life by the side of this amazing river
  • You can go on tours through the desert on the back of a camel
