Top things to see/do in Egypt

  • 1. Abu Simbel
    Abu Simbel Temple Complex, Abu Simbel, Aswan Governorate

    Probably the highlight of Ancient Egypt; you will stand in awe in front of this almighty temple with the four massive statues of Ramsees II guarding the entrance

  • 2. Pyramids of Giza
    Pyramids of Giza, Giza, Giza Governorate

    The pyramids - What more do I need to say?

  • 3. Valley of the Kings
    Valley of the Kings, Luxor, Nile River Valley

    A must visit for anybody visiting Egypt which houses the tombs of most of the major Pharoahs of Ancient Egypt including that of King Tutankhamen. An early morning balloon ride is a splendid way of seeing the valley

  • 4. Ride a Felucca down the Nile

    The alternative to the Nile cruise; a 2 day trip down the Nile is an unforgetable experience; it is a great way to relax for those "templed out" travellers

  • 5. Egyptian Museum
    Egyptian Antiquities Museum, Cairo, Cairo Governorate

    No visit to Egypt would be complete without visiting this museum. A must is to visit the Royal Mummies Hall, where the original mummies of some of the great Pharoahs are on display

  • 6. Dive the Red Sea
    Red Sea and Sinai, Egypt

    Whether you are an seasoned pro or just a beginner, the Red Sea caters for all divers and you will never forget your underwater experiences here.
