Maximized my time in Egypt
Egypt is a large country with so many magnificent places to see. This tour covers so much ground, woth every penny. My only feedback was to spend more time in Luxor versus Hurghada. Theres so much to see in Luxor, need more than a day there.

Memorable experience
I was really impressed with the tour. Everything from the airport pick up to the airport drop off was on time and well-organized. I highly commend the people who are behind the logistics of the tour. The tour leaders were very approachable, knowledgeable, and looked after the group all throughout our time in Egypt. The itinerary was superb. It includes all the highlights a first-timer in Egypt would want to see.

Best Experience all thanks to Travel Expat Explore!
Ever since I was little, I always dreamed to go to Egypt and Travel Expat Explore literally gave me the best experience ever! Our tour was amazing having to travel almost all around Egypt-- From Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, Hurghada and Alexandria. Our tour guide- Mina, was the best as well! He made sure that everyone in the group felt inclusive. He even became our friend at the end of the trip as he was just such a remarkable person to be around. The tour felt very safe especially because Mina really made sure that we were not harmed or hussled by the vendors. I really appreciate him so much. The best part of the tour for me was seeing the Great Pyramids of Giza as it was the one I've always needed to see ever since I was a child. The next favourite part would be meeting the people from the tour -- not only learning about the culture of Egypt, but other cultures as well as we were quite a diverse group. Special thanks to Mina and the rest of Travel Expat Team for making this tour as orga

Insightful experience
Mina, our tour operator made each one of us felt included at all times. He took note of the small details and got to know our strenghts and weaknesses quickly! Always saying "watch your step". His knowlegde of the history is phenominal.

Why this tour?

Explore Egypt with us for the best prices of affordable, fun and convenient group tours. Best prices for Nile cruise with accommodation, transport, most meals and several activities included! The ideal duration of Nile cruises is to spend 9 days in Egypt and see a number of world-famous ancient wonders and attractions to visit; including the pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza - and cruise along one of the world’s oldest waterways on captivating Nile tours. 

You’ll embark on a round trip from Cairo, along the Nile, to the Red Sea Coast. 

Highlights of the trip:

  • Get an on-site ancient history lesson on a guided visit to the Giza Pyramid Complex with an Egyptologist.
  • You’ll get to experience Egyptian culture, bucket-list sites and beautiful scenery first-hand. 
  • Your felucca sailing trip along the Nile River is a huge highlight of this tour of Egypt River cruise. You’ll sail along the river over two days and visit many different types of sites of interest along the way. Enjoy meals and spend the night on a felucca - a traditional wooden sailing boat. This is a safe and unique way to experience the Nile River.
  • Our Egypt Nile cruise packages are the perfect opportunity for Egypt enthusiasts and adventurers to discover the highlights of this ancient destination. 
  • During your cruise, you’ll get to admire temples including the Philae Temple, the Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple Complex. On top of this, enjoy time to explore the Valley of the Kings and the Colossi of Memnon. 
  • Enjoy free time to choose your own Egyptian adventure. After your Nile quest, you’ll be treated to two nights at an all-inclusive Red Sea resort. This is your chance to relax by the water and even do some snorkelling and scuba diving. The coral reefs here are teeming with beautiful marine life! The choice is all yours. 

Is this trip right for me?

Whether you are friends travelling together, family looking for a fun and fascinating vacation, older travellers looking for Egyptian Nile tours, or solo travellers looking for adventure holidays in Egypt - if you enjoy bucket-list worthy sites, unique culture and beautiful scenery, this is the best trip for you. 

  • Travelling on a felucca is a unique Eqyptian experience. The deck area is covered with comfortable mattresses that will be used for relaxation while cruising along the Nile. They are also used for sleeping over night. Spending the night like this on the Nile will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Enjoy the nighttime ambience of the river and starry sky before turning in for the night. Sleeping on a spot near the outer mattress area will allow for some extra space.  
  • As this is ancient Egypt, walkways around many Egyptian ruins can be dusty, and rocky. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to get a bit dusty! (You can look forward to a shower at the hotel afterwards).
  • Some hotels in Egypt don’t have lifts so you may need to carry your bags up stairs. It can help to avoid overpacking and bring a bag that you can maneuver easily. Or keep an eye out for hotel staff who can help with luggage. You may even have some helpful fellow travellers who can assist!
  • Temperatures in Egypt can be extremely hot. Travel during slightly cooler times, to avoid the heat of high summer and enjoy more pleasant sightseeing conditions. If you do travel in summer, be sure to pack sunscreen, wear light and airy clothing and stay hydrated.
