Egypt & Middle East

VISIT THE WONDERS OF EGYPT & MIDDLE EAST

Throughout history Egypt and the Middle East has been the centre of great civilisations. It is home to many of the world's finest monuments, including the Great Pyramids, the rose city of Petra, and Baalbek in Lebanon. The Red Sea is also a mecca for divers from around the world.

The Middle East countries offer a wonder and colourful mix of culture, art and architecture. The region's historic past is evident wherever you look, in the shape of massive Pharaonic monuments, crumbling Roman ruins, colourful Byzantine art, hidden Nabatean cities, Islamic mosques and Christian churches. For those wanting to get off the tourist trail and see a little more of what the region has to offer there are plenty of interesting activities to choose from. Spending time travelling through the deserts and oases on a jeep or camel safari, overnight at a Bedouin camp, diving in the Red Sea, or a sailboat trek are just a few examples of what's available. It's also very easy to combine the more adventurous activities with the main historic sites, and to finish with some time relaxing by the Mediterranean or Red Sea.
