Egypt Tours from Encounters Travel

Do you want to discover the main tourist sites in Egypt? Or perhaps you want to explore locations off the beaten track? Here at Encounters Travel we have it covered. An inspirational travel destination for centuries, the alluring charm of a holiday to Egypt remains clear today. Home to some of the world’s most iconic monuments and ancient civilisations which date back millennia, any trip to Egypt is certain to create lasting memories. Whether you want to visit the Pyramids in Cairo or the temples of the Nile Valley, explore the vast beautiful desert landscape or relax and unwind in one of the many Red sea resorts, Egypt has something for every traveller.

Note: We are delighted to be able to run tours throughout nearly the whole of Egypt again following updated UK Foreign Office advice. Some restrictions remain however, including travel between Cairo and Luxor (which needs to be done by flight or coach via Hurghada instead of by train), and travel between Cairo and Dahab/Sharm-el-Sheikh (which needs to be done by flight instead of by road). Some provinces in the Nile Valley between Cairo and Luxor are also out of bounds but these are little visited by tourists and are only featured on one or two of our tours).

Sightseeing and Adventure Tours of Egypt

We have always had a great passion for travel in Egypt and our expert staff are on hand to help arrange a memorable trip for you. Why not join one of our small group tours or day tours as we explore the sites of ancient Egypt in and around Cairo and the Nile Valley. Many of our tours feature time spent cruising along the Nile between Aswan and Luxor, while others explore Egypt’s deserts and beaches, or cross into the neighbouring country of Jordan to visit Petra and the Dead Sea.
