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.

My sister and I had a wonderful time in the land of Egypt. The best parts for me were seeing the Temple of Queen Hopshepsut and riding up the Nile. I enjoyed my trip with Friendly Planet and will go on another. Thanks!

Pyramids & Nile Cruise
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for an exceptional time on my recent trip to Egypt with you. It was a trip I've always wanted to take so it was important to me and you didn't let me down. We covered the best in our days together, the accommodations were great and the staff we dealt with throughout was superior. In the hotel, on the boat, our bus driver and our security. A+ customer service and beyond that, they were great people I enjoyed getting to know. Our Director kept everything running flawlessly and our guide was the best. He spent the most time with us and showed us an Egypt we won't ever forget. His knowledge and passion were a capstone to an incredible trip and I looked forward to what he would share with us each day. That is something I'm missing already. My thanks to all of you.
