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.

The trip to Egypt including Cairo and a Nile Cruise, was one of the best vacations I have had. If you are looking for action packed travel at a great value, this is the trip for you.The other travelers were great, the hotel and cruise boat were good, the food was exceptional and the tour guide was one of the best I have encountered.

Pyramids & Nile Cruise
Clearly the Egypt trip was the BEST value in traveling we've ever had, and, believe me, I search all over. I would heartily recommend that trip and, based on it, Friendly Planet for exceptional travel organization and service. Looking forward to traveling with you again.
