EGYPT TOURS

Egypt Tourism Authority Logo

If you want to explore the main tourist sites in Egypt or discover locations off the beaten track, then our Encounters Travel Egypt tours have it covered. Egypt has been an inspirational travel destination for centuries and its allure continues to this day. 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 beautiful desert landscapes or relax and unwind in one of the many Red sea resorts, Egypt has something for every traveller.

Note: Following UK Foreign Office travel advice we are are not currently running any tours to the Sinai peninsular or to Egypt's western deserts. All our tours through Cairo, the Nile Valley, and to the Red Sea at Hurghada are runnning as normal. From 1 Jan 2016 all our tours that were based on the overnight 'sitting train' are now using the overnight sleeper train. More information on current travel to Egypt...

Sightseeing and Adventure Tours of Egypt

We have always had a great passion for travel in Egypt and several of our sales staff have lived and worked in Egypt. Combined with a great local team managed directly from Egypt by one of our directors, we're confident we have the knowledge and experience to provide an unbeatable service before, during and after our tours to Egypt. So, 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. We also run a wide range of private and tailor-made tours in Egypt.

TOUR REVIEWS

Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later. Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful. Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!

I thought it was very good we didn't have to worry about anything everything was in order and kept with the schedule as planned, unless we wanted to deviated from it to do somethingelse. The trip really a trip of a life time.
There was a time many years ago that I wanted to travel to Egypt and didn't because of the cost. This trip was, to me, very affordable. I think everyone should experience this trip. The tour guide was alos excellent, Sherif Mohammad.

My contact with Encounters representative was a pleasure, she answered my questions promptly, provided a quotation and changed it quickly when different flights were preferred. Both by e-mail and phone the response was very timely.

When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!

Encounters Travel did an excellent job in all aspects of our trip! Egypt was amazing and the trip was made especially enjoyable as a result of the quality of the guides. I highly recommend Encounters Travel!
Worth every penny! Go to Egypt with Encounters Travel!
