Discover

Egypt

Ancient and majestic Egypt spans from the lapping waves of the Mediterranean to the searing heat of the Sahara desert, with the mighty River Nile joining cities and settlements along the way. In the buzzing metropolis of Cairo explore endless markets, enjoy delicious kebabs and lose yourself in the awe-inspiring halls of the Egyptian Museum. Here you can also discover the legendary Great Pyramid of Egypt. Take to the waters aboard a Nile cruise and watch serenely as the nation drifts past, from traditional fishing boats to the spectacle of the Aswany Dam. At Luxor step back into Ancient Egypt amid the Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple, and experience millennia of human history in this wondrous place.
