Highlights

Egyptian Museum ​
Located in Cairo and home to more than 120,000 artefacts spanning through Egyptian history, be amazed by this assemblage of antiquities. Representing the world’s largest collection of its kind, find a glittering array of gold, gems and lavishly decorated furniture. Be sure to visit the famous Tutankhamun galleries and the Royal Mummy Room.

Khan El Kalili Bazaar
Explore this extraordinary Cairo bazaar with its gold and silversmiths, clothmakers, metalworkers and woodworkers. Bargain hard! Be sure to enjoy a tea or coffee at Café Fishawi – famed to be the oldest continuous running restaurant on Earth, but also the place where Naguib Mahfouz wrote his wonderful novels based in and around this part of Cairo.

Alexandria
Named after Alexander the Great, this picturesque city has a French colonial atmosphere, with cute patisseries, grand squares and art deco architecture yet with a relaxed Greek influence. Crowded sandy beaches can be found in the summer months, as the city sits nestled next to the Mediterranean.

Abu Simbel
Carved out of sandstone cliffs high above the Nile, the two temples of Abu Simbel are one of the most famous ancient sites in Egypt. The most famous of the two are the four colossal statues of Ramses II, standing 20 metres high, flanking the entrance.

Sinai Peninsula & The Red Sea
Offering white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters perfect for snorkelling, both Sharm el Sheikh and Dahab are well worth visits on the peninsula. The Red Sea justly deserves a mention for its worldwide reputation for underwater adventure as it’s teeming with colourful marine life and coral reefs.
