Formidable pharaonic ruins, gigantic pyramids and vast sculpted sand dunes: Egypt’s wonders are endless. Nothing can quite prepare you for your first visit to the enigmatic Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza, the only remaining example of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Egypt holidays are like a trip back in time, especially on a cruise down the Nile aboard the Steam Ship Sudan, during which you can experience the country in all its timeless glory. Drift along this biblical river in the beautifully preserved 19th century steamship, with its belle époque interior and old-time charm,
stopping of at ancient temples along the way and sitting on the deck with a cocktail in hand, watching the riverbanks float by. Alternatively opt for a traditional dahabiya (houseboat) or an elegant felucca (sailing boat), for the chance to see Cairo from the water. For a closer look at Egypt’s chaotic capital, our travel experts can arrange privately guided tours of the city, with the chance to see the country’s most iconic monuments without the crowds. Other opulent (on land) accommodation includes the Legend Old Cataract in Aswan and the Old Winter Palace in Luxor, which both possess every possible comfort and exude a sense of enduring glamour. Your history lesson can continue in both cities at Luxor’s Valley of the Kings, Queens and Nobles, and Aswan’s Philae Temple Complex. Beyond its ancient treasures and intriguing history, Egypt holidays offer a mix of mouth-watering cuisine, beguiling desertscapes and vibrant culture.
