Ancient Egyptians established a magnificent civilisation along the fertile Nile Valley from the Alexandria delta, with its fine Ottoman architecture, to the upper Nile Valley where elegant riverboats and graceful feluccas sail through history past splendid temples at Karnak, Kom Ombo and Edfu.

In Egypt's capital, Cairo, Tutankhamun silently observes visitors to the splendid Egyptian Museum, whilst nearby the vast Great Pyramids of Giza tower over the regal sphinx. Beyond the valley, divers flock to the coral of the Red Sea for some of the best diving in the world.

Explore Egypt's spectacular desert landscapes by 4X4, take a luxury Nile River cruise to view the magical scenery and experience the history and splendour of the ancient culture. Talk to our destination experts about holidaying in Egypt.
