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.

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

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 experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
Excellent

Amazing tour. Any issues we had were addressed in a timely fashion and the resolutions were satisfactory. My only complaint is the driver picking us up was late and none of the cell numbers worked when we tried to call and figure out what to do.
