7 Nights/ 8 Days

  • Best Time To Visit

    Egypt is a year round destination – although the summer months can be particularly hot, especially towards the south of Egypt in Luxor and Aswan. The best time to visit Egypt is from September through to April. Christmas, New Year and Easter are very popular times to visit Egypt, so it’s wise to book early.

Egypt, a country linking northeast Africa with the Middle East, dates to the time of the pharaohs. Millennia-old monuments sit along the fertile Nile River Valley, including Giza’s colossal Pyramids and Great Sphinx as well as Luxor’s hieroglyph-lined Karnak Temple and Valley of the Kings tombs. The capital, Cairo, is home to Ottoman landmarks like Muhammad Ali Mosque and the Egyptian Museum, a trove of antiquities.
