Here are just are sample of some of the highlights from one of our Egyptian family holidays
Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza
The Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx, found on the outskirts of the city, are an unmissable part of many people's Egypt holidays. Camel rides and photo opportunities await tourists in an area where history permeates every corner. Those who have been on an Egyptian Holiday usually agree that Giza and the Pyramids have a unique atmosphere that is unrivalled anywhere else in the world. These are some of the things that shouldn’t be missed when on holidays in Egypt. More than 4,000 years old, the pyramids are the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that remain intact.
Snorkel in the Red Sea
Swim and snorkel in the lovely offshore coral reefs of the Red Sea to see the abundance of vividly coloured marine life that inhabits the warm waters. Pods of frolicking dolpins are not an unusual sight and there is a plethora colourful fish. If you are lucky you may spot 'Nemo' (or clown fish), beautiful rainbow fish, colourful sea stars, curious sea turtles while exploring this underwater paradise. The Red Sea has many treasures to admire and is the perfect site to spend time relaxing on our Egypt family holiday.
Overnight Felucca Cruise
Travel by age-old felucca sailboat, used by the Egyptians for centuries. Along the way you'll meet locals and enjoy the passing scenery. At night, you'll tie-up at the riverbank and listen to Nubian songs and drums around a campfire before falling asleep under the star, while listening to the Nile lapping against the side of the boat.
Sandboarding in the Sinai
Discover the sand dune of Hadoudah which is the highest dune in the Sinai and a great place to give sand boarding a go!
A night under the stars at Bedouin camp
Sleeping in a bedouin tent or under the stars is a great opportunity to experience the authentic bedoiun lifestyle and get a local flavour of the desert. The camp consists of woven tents, carpets, mattresses and sleep up to 10 people. It is sectioned into several areas; a sleeping/relaxation area and a kitchen area which is set away from the main tent.
Best time to travel
The best time to visit Egypt depends on where you want to go. Generally speaking, winter (December to February) is the tourist high season and summer (June to August) is the low season in all parts of the country except on the coasts, and to a lesser degree in Cairo.
