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.

TAILOR-MADE Egypt TOURS

Map

Our tailor-made tours seek to create a personalised experience – one that is completely exclusive to you. By taking all your interests and requests into consideration, we design an itinerary that ticks off your specific boxes. If you are after adventurous exploration, cultural immersion, a relaxing escape or a balanced blend of everything, we can make it happen.

A highlight of our tailor-made tours is that the itinerary is flexible and incorporates plenty of free time – so you can do some exploring on your own. Our local, friendly guides, experts in their country’s history and culture, will be happy to adjust the activities or your schedule as you travel.

If you are a group of friends, a large family or a company, our tailor-made tours are an ideal, stress-free option. You can even select your own hotels or make use of our recommended accommodation. We have a varied selection of sample holiday itineraries to choose from, either as they stand or as a base for inspiration.

TOUR REVIEWS

Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.

I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.

Anthony has been a pleasure to work with and when he is not available, other members of the team respond in a timely manner. I have booked a total of 6 trips since December 2013 and plan to book more to fill my bucket list.

Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....
