Egypt Tours & Trips

There’s a lot more to Egypt than the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx. A jeep tour through oasis towns, overnighting in a Bedouin camp, diving in the Red Sea with incredible marine life, or cruising the Nile either on a felucca sailing boat or onboard a luxury cruise ship. Not to be missed are the ancient wonders - Valley of the Kings, King Tut’s Tomb, and the Temple of Karnak.
