Egyptian Family Adventure Holiday
On this family holiday to Egypt we sail down the River Nile by felucca (a traditional sailing boat), ride camels through the desert and swim in the warm waters of the Red Sea. Join us as we bring history to life first hand, exploring one of the ancient civilizations of the world. Witness the wonders of the Great Pyramids of Giza, discover the Valley of the Kings, home to the famous tomb of Tutankhamun and wander the treasure-filled halls of Cairo's Egyptian Museum home to numerous world famous artefacts and treasures.
This trip allows the option for triple rooms to be included within the booking on a selected number of night stops within the holiday. If you would like this option, a discount may be applicable on the cost of the trip - please ask our Sales team for further information.

Have you seen the movie Gladiator? If not, go and watch right now. Those who have seen in will be glad to know that Sahara is the location where the most prominent scenes of the movie were shot. You can start with capturing the velvet dunes and taking photos of the snake charmers and mighty camels proudly swaying as they carry bedouins on their back. Once in a province, you will get a chance to capture and even participate in the traditional tea ceremony as well as to see the locals playing gnawa music performed on goatskin drums. The beauty of the sunset in Sahara is just a cherry on the top of a cake you cannot miss out on.
