The pyramids are the most well-known attraction in Egypt however, there is so much more that makes this country so unique. Where else would you find two religions living in peace, a country so heavily linked with its past and so hospitable, and with such a wealth of different attractions. We aim to reveal as many of the different sides of Egypt as possible.

Throughout history, all life has stemmed from the River Nile so by following its path from North to South, we hope to show you how much the landscape changes. In fact, the months when it flooded were instrumental in sailing gigantic stone blocks down to Giza for construction of the pyramids. Therefore, experiencing Egypt along The Nile is the best way of truly understanding the country.

The unmissable experiences of this country and listening to the call to prayer cascading over loudspeaker throughout the city, gazing up at the pyramids pointed spire towering overhead, visiting Alexandria library and enjoying the solitude of sailing along the Nile.

Cruise this ancient river by cruise ship and open-air ‘felucca’ sailboat, observe villages and Egypt’s rural life and witness the lush side of this desert country. There are some countries which constantly remind you of being in a foreign land and Egypt is one of them, what more could you possibly want!
