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.



Our video features bring our tours to life in a way the no photo can, you'll feel like you're on the tour.


From travel tips to country guides, packing lists to little known things to do, you'll find it all in our popular travel blog.
