How to get the most out of this brochure and your time in Egypt
The brochure has been divided into sections showing a variety of options available to both first time as well as repeat travellers to Egypt. We have designed a large selection of itineraries starting from just a few day stay in Cairo (Cairo 2 and 3 Night Packages), through to a series of short tours visiting Luxor and/or Aswan as well as comprehensive tours of various durations that cover the most famous sites of Egypt. We offer private tours as well as small group tours. Some tours combine sightseeing in Cairo with a Nile cruise and Lake Nasser cruises. As there are a large number of cruise vessels available on the Nile we have selected only those that mainly cater for independent travellers and understand needs of Australian travellers. We offer a large selection of hotels, tours and cruises to suit any taste or budget, ranging from basic to luxury and even small cruises like Dahabeya for a special experience. Whatever your taste, we can find the right choice for you.
Best Value Hotels & Cruises in Egypt
Whether you are going overseas on business or on holiday, allow us to find the best possible accommodation at the best possible price for you. Sometimes the huge volume of hotels and cruises on offer can be quite daunting, and it becomes a challenge to find the right product for your needs and at the right price. We have negotiated the best prices at the best hotels to be used as part of our programmes. Look for these logos throughout the brochure to recognise the hotels and cruises we use for our Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum programmes. These hotels offer superb value for money while being conveniently located. We have selected the cruises for our packages that offer comfortable cabins and general facilities relevant to the expectations of Australian travellers not necessarily the star rating given by the local authorities. The staff of the hotels and cruises that we use offer friendly and helpful service and understand the needs of our Australian clients. You'll save with our programmes without compromising your standards.
Unique Features of Egypt Programmes
Guaranteed Departures of our tours of Egypt
All individual tours have guaranteed departures even with only one person. Once your tour has been booked and confirmed it will not be cancelled due to lack of numbers. The group tours will operate with a maximum of 15 participants but should 2 of you be the only passengers booked on the tour it will still operate as a private tour without any extra charge.
Most itineraries operate daily (although the sequence of the itinerary may vary depending on arrival day in Cairo). Programmes departing on selected days are based on selected cruise vessels departures. Those programs may also operate daily if the order of the itinerary is changed or an alternative cruise is used.
English Only Tours of Egypt
All our tours are conducted in English only. Should your party wish to have a guide speaking another language instead, please contact us as this can be arranged as well.
During tours and transfers we will provide a free bottle of water per passenger. (Water is not included during meals at restaurants or on Nile cruises and their shore excursions as they are arranged by cruise companies).
Private Tours of Egypt
Booking your tour with us gives you the comfort of travelling on your own private tour without the hassles of a large group. Transfers are provided in an air-conditioned vehicle with driver and English speaking escort. All sightseeing tours (except the ones which are part of the cruise) are conducted on a private basis with both a driver and English speaking guide. Regardless of how many transfers or tours are booked for the same day each party gets their own transport. During cruises, tours are organised by the cruise company and all Israel components are conducted on a group tour basis. Super Savers programs are group tours.
Small Group Tours of Egypt
Small group tours in our brochure are called Super Savers programs. They are group tours with the maximum number of participants of 15 and represent a saving of about 20% off the regular tour price. The tour will operate regardless of the number of participants booked and will operate even with 2 participants.
Guides during our Tours of Egypt
We take extreme pride in working with only the best guides available. All of our guides are qualified English speaking, University graduate Egyptologists with more than five years' experience.
Night Arrivals or Departures for Tours in Egypt
Our transfer services are available 24 hours a day and we do not surcharge for night transfers. In the event that you book additional accommodation with us either prior to or after your package which already includes your transfer/s, then these will still be provided to you at no additional cost.
Best Duration of Stay in Egypt
For a quick look at the Pyramids and Cairo Museum a 2 and 3 nights stay in Cairo is sufficient but 5 or 6 days is essential to get glimpses of the main sites in Luxor and Aswan as well as Cairo. For more comprehensive cover of the country 8 to 10 days is required to combine Cairo with the Nile Cruise. Most travellers enjoy the longer stay in Egypt of about 10 to 12 days and add Alexandria and or Sharm El Sheikh. We strongly recommend 11 to
13 days programmes that combine a classical Nile cruise with the cruise on Lake Nasser as those cruises offer an overnight stay at Abu Simbel which is one of the not to be missed sites in Egypt. For an in depth look at Egypt we recommend extended itineraries of 15 to 20 days that combine major sites as well as pre and post tours to fascinating Oasis located through Egypt. We also offer tours that start in Cairo and finish in Israel and/or Jordan to save you both time and money. Tours in the opposite direction from Jordan or Israel to Egypt can be found in our Israel or Jordan brochures.
Due to space limitation in the brochure we list only the most popular itineraries. Any programme may be modified to suit individual arrangements as they are all conducted on a private basis. Extra nights can be added and extra tours and visits can be incorporated to make a personalised itinerary. When looking for the ideal place to holiday in Egypt make sure when you're planning your holiday that you get all of the components right. Our staff's expertise means that they can help you with your planning and translate your dream holiday into a reality.
Should you wish to add pre or post accommodation, break the tour to visit friends or relatives or combine tours please contact us and we will do our best to amend the itinerary. Should you wish to book extra nights with us before or after the tour using same hotel your transfers will be provided free of charge.
Must See Sites in Egypt
A visit to Egypt is usually on everyone's bucket list. In Cairo the main sites include Pyramids with Sphinx, Cairo Museum, Memphis, Sakkara, Citadel and Bazaar. Luxor, commonly known as the world's greatest outdoor museum, features the temples of Luxor and Karnak, Queen Hatshepsut temple and Valley of the Kings and Queens. Aswan is best known for its Nubian Museum, Botanical and Elephantine islands, Philae Temple and High Dam. Abu Simbel is located on Lake Nasser and is considered one of the most important temples in Egypt. For those who enjoy military history El Alamain near Alexandria is the must see place.
Unique Experiences in Egypt
With many of our tours we offer our clients unique experiences such as the possibility of entering inside the
Pyramids, Camel rides or the opportunity of having meals with the locals. We can pre-book High Tea at the Terrace of the famous Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan for clients even if they are not staying at the hotel. We recommend a trip to one of the oases in Egypt especially Siwa oasis which some of the our clients described as the most unique life experience that they have ever had.
