Egypt at a glance

Egypt is gradually reclaiming its spot on travellers' itineraries, and about time too. Our Egypt travel guide is here to help answer any questions that you might have before starting your Egyptian adventure. This country has a somewhat complex landscape (partly due to current travel advice) and so understanding that, for example, specific temples should only be visited with a guide, is crucial, and that's where we step in. Relishing the chance to explore the country away from the tourist crowds is a genuine delight, which is something we can also help with.

Diving enthusiasts will be captivated by the Red Sea coast - the decline in tourism in recent decades has allowed coral reefs to recover, restoring them to their former splendour. In the northern region of Lower Egypt, Alexandria is a treasure trove, including its legendary waterfront, Pompey's Pillar, the catacombs of Kom el Shuqafa, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Zan'et el-Settat, the Citadel of Qaitbay and the fish market.

The timeless wonders of ancient Egypt beckon exploration. From the pyramids of Giza and the tombs of the Valley of Kings, to the temples of the Nile Valley, Denderah, Edfu and Abydos in Upper Egypt - adventures are plentiful. In Nubia, near Aswan, the temple of Philae awaits, and further south, Abu Simbel.

Amid these journeys through time, remember to delve into contemporary Egypt: wander through the bustling souks, indulge in a shisha pipe, seek out antiques, uncover local villages and observe life along the Nile... now is the opportune moment to unveil the wonders of Egypt.
