From cruising down the Nile and marvelling at the wondrous Pyramids of Giza to deep diving in the Red Sea and exploring the ancient tombs of Luxor, a holiday to Egypt is guaranteed to be filled with exhilarating adventure and unforgettable moments. And now, with the increased number of daily flights directly from Heathrow to Cairo with EgyptAir, planning your journey to this incredible country has never been more convenient and hassle-free! 


Pose in front of the Pyramids of Giza

One of the main reasons to visit Egypt is to be awestruck by the spectacular Pyramids of Giza. Standing in their presence, you'll feel a sense of wonder that's hard to describe. You can see them from afar on a donkey or camel ride, and you can even go inside the pyramids for an added experience, immersing yourself in their ancient history.

Located on the outskirts of Cairo, the Pyramids of Giza are fantastic architectural marvels and one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Visiting them is not only on most travellers' bucket lists but also a truly unforgettable experience.

Try your best to visit early in the day before too many crowds start to gather, or the temperature gets too hot for a more comfortable experience. There are also restaurants near the pyramids that allow you to enjoy breakfast or lunch with a truly incredible view of the ancient wonder. 


Cruise down the River Nile

Egypt is also home to another wondrous natural site, the long-stretching River Nile that flows all through the country. It’s one thing admiring it from land, but actually cruising it on a boat is the best way to appreciate the captivating river.

You can hire a famous felucca boat and sail down the Nile, enjoying spectacular sunsets and sightings of dolphins, waterbirds, and crocodiles. For an added experience, you can hire an expert Egyptologist to ride along with you and stop at historical sites such as Kom Ombo and Edfu.

One of the best ways to soak up the beauty of the Nile is on a luxurious Nile Cruise that takes you from Luxor to Aswan, passing by some of the most gorgeous areas in Egypt. You will need a good few days for the trip, but it is well worth it and one of the most amazing adventures you can do in the country. 


Deep dive into the Red Sea

Egypt's natural beauty doesn’t stop there. The country is also home to the clear and crisp waters of the beautiful Red Sea. Sitting on the country’s eastern coastline, it is one of the best spots in the world for snorkelling and diving, with an array of colourful sea life inhabiting it.

Taking a deep dive into the Red Sea and exploring the vibrant underwater world along the reefs is one of the top things to do in Egypt and a real picturesque experience.

The Red Sea is lined with luxurious five-star resorts that allow you to appreciate its beauty in real comfort and style. Sharm El Sheik is a tourism hot spot and is an excellent place for a fun and stress-free family holiday in Egypt. 


Explore the Ancient Sites of Luxor

If you’re a keen history buff and love visiting ancient archaeological sites, you’ve come to the best country. Egypt is seeping with fascinating history from every corner. One of the biggest treasure troves that you must visit is Luxor, an ancient city of Thebes.

It is home to marvellous sites such as the temples of Luxor and Karnack and the famous Valley of the Kings. You can see these phenomenal sites as you cruise down the Nile and step off to get a more intimate experience on foot.

From the minute you step foot in Luxor, you feel like you have gone back in time and into another fascinating world of history. You can’t help but marvel as you walk among the ruins of sacred structures, colossal statues and royal tombs.
