  • Abu Simbel

    Of all of Egypt's many riches and treasures, Abu Simbel is perhaps the most utterly astonishing. Yet due to its out of the way location, may visitors make the mistake of missing it.

  • Alexandria

    Although a three hour drive from Cairo, a visit to Alexandria is highly rewarding if you can spare the time.

  • Aswan

    Aswan is often considered Egypt's most beautiful city. It is home to antiquities and additional more varied sites, and is usually the start (or end) point for Nile cruises.

  • Cairo

    With a population of ten million, Cairo is the largest city in the Middle East. It is chaotic and unwieldly, yet essential to understanding Egypt past and present.

  • Edfu (Temple of Horus)

    The temple of Edfu (also known as the temple of Horus) lies on the river Nile between Luxor and Aswan.

  • Esna

    Esna is home to the Temple of Khnum.

  • Giza: Pyramids & Sphinx

    Of the seven wonders of the ancient world, only one remains today: The Great Pyramid of Giza.

  • Kom Ombo (the Crocodile Temple)

    The temple of Kom Ombo sits on the shores of the Nile between Luxor and Aswan.

  • Luxor & Karnak

    Luxor was the ancient city of Thebes, seat of the spiritual life of ancient Egypt. It is therefore hardly surprising that the area of and surrounding Luxor is amongst the most densely populated with temples, tombs and monuments.

  • Red Sea

    Egypt's red sea is the perfect place for total relaxation following a busy cultural tour.

  • Sahara Desert

    The Sahara feels a million miles from Cairo, yet is only an hour and a half’s drive, and therefore accessible as a day trip or for a longer stay at the charming Lazib Inn.

  • Valley of Kings & Queens

    On Luxor's West Bank lie the myriad tombs of Kings, Queens and nobles, as well as the Colossi of Memnon.
