Sidewalk meets the sand in Egypt. Vibrant, energetic Cairo contrasts starkly with the timelessness of pyramids and the silence of the desert. Marvel at the Pharaoh's treasures, then haggle for your own at a rowdy open air bazaar. Sail the Nile by luxury cruise ship or felucca, a small Egyptian sailboat.
Tours & Packages to Egypt
Friendly Planet did all the legwork for me! With so many sights to choose from in Egypt, we were able to see the major attractions. I felt totally immersed in such an amazing country. I lost track of the days and was able to focus on my surroundings, not a worry about plans, flights, or admission to sights.
We are very happy with the entire experience of the tour. Well organized. I forgot my camera in the bus in Luxor and remembered it in Cairo! The tour guide located it and the camera was sent to me! All I had to do is make one phone call! Great job!
