The hustle and bustle of Egyptian culture radiates from the fertile banks of the Nile. Camels lollop by laden with goods, the water’s edge is dotted with the crinkled heads of crocodiles and the sounds of the gently flapping sails of a felucca drift by in the breeze. All this and more can be absorbed as you cruise down the Nile on the beautifully preserved Steam Ship Sudan, with a glass of traditional karkadeh (hibiscus tea) in hand. Egypt overflows with culture, from pharaonic ruins and famous souqs, to vast sand dunes and monumental pyramids. History aficionados will
revel in the endless temples dotted across Egypt; our favourites include Luxor Temple, the Temple of Karnak and the Philae Temple complex. Art lovers should be sure to explore the Temple of Seti with an expert guide for an insight into Ramesside art, as the limestone walls are brimming with wonderful ancient murals in earthy hues. And of course, you can’t miss the most famous Egyptian attraction: the pyramids. Delve into ancient history in Cairo with a guided tour of the pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinus as well as the Great Pyramid of Giza – the only remaining example of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Just a few steps away you can snap a pic of the royal headdress that adorns the Great Sphinx on the Nile’s western bank, an eternal symbol of this culture-packed country. One of our Egypt cultural holidays will leave you wanting more, which is lucky, as this is just the tip of the iceberg…
