Book
The more you see of Egypt, the more you’ll want to explore! From the mighty pyramids of Giza, the temples of Abu Simbel, or busy Khan al-Khalili Bazaar, this nine-day journey is a great place to start. Before booking on this trip we recommend that you read the ‘Safety’ section in the Essential Trip Information regarding special safety considerations for Egypt trips.

Highlights

    • A day spent among the incredible Pyramids of Giza is only the beginning. This trip packs an impressive number of highlights into just nine days, without compromising on comfort and relaxation.
    • Explore the famed & mysterious tomb of King Tutankhamun.
    • Travel to Abu Simbel’s monumental temples by plane and marvel at the sheer scale of these stunning structures.
    • Do like the locals and settle in with a coffee or mint tea amid the chatter and hookah smoke in what's said to be Cairo's oldest coffee shop
    • A four-night river cruise is the ideal way to experience the Nile. Rest and relax on the sun deck and in the pool while local riverside life streams by
    • Experience not only the warmth and charm of Nubian hospitality, but also some delicious traditional cuisine
    • Cairo's Khan al-Khalili Bazaar is an essential Egyptian experience, and you'll have plenty of time to lose yourself in the colours and aromas of this fascinating marketplace.
    • Enjoy a home cooked meal with a local Egyptian family.
    • The stone temples of Thebes remain a defining part of the Luxor skyline, and are particularly impressive at sunset.

Take this tour, It is safe, filed with amazing locations and will leave you breathless. The locals want you here and will make you feel welcome. Make sure you research and don't get caught up in other people's views. There are issues but they did not impact on our trip in any way and I hope that us being here helps change the perception that clouds this country and brings tourism, a life line to everyone in Egypt, back to the levels it has been.

Our trip to Egypt was an amazing experience facilitated by an exceptional guide. The itinerary was well balanced with heaps of variety and flexible enough to cater for the changing conditions sometimes experienced. We were surprised however as to just how difficult it was to find a beer in Cairo to wash the dust away after a day full of cultural immersion.

If you have ever wanted to visit Egypt now is the time to go. Tourist numbers are down and the magnificent temples and tombs can be viewed without the crowds.

A great time to visit Egypt and Jordan as there are very few tourists so you get to see the sights unhampered by crowds. Personal safety was never a concern.

I am an American woman traveling with my daughter. I was warned many times not to go to Egypt or Jordan. I was skeptical at first but after the first day I never felt I was in danger and would go again tomorrow. I have always wanted to see Egypt and Jordan and I'm thankful to peregrine for making this opportunity possible. Don't give up your dreams.

One aspect of travelling with Peregrine that I like is the small size of the tour groups which makes it easy to get friendly with your fellow travellers.

Take advantage of any optional activiites and plan for them by brining extra cash. Also getting visas for both Jordan and Egyt was very simple and much less expensive at the airport once you arrive. Save the overly inflated cost of doing it ahead of time through CIBT.

Egypt is an amazing country and Ahmed made it come to life for us.

Peregrine Adventures

Our name stems from the word 'Peregrinate’, meaning to migrate, walk or take a pilgrimage – very fitting for our beginnings as a trekking company. Since our inception, we've broadened our horizons and now offer small group journeys in over 80 countries across all seven continents, which can be enjoyed by anyone with an enquiring mind who enjoys getting off the beaten track (without forgoing some of the comforts of home).

We are a company built by travellers for travellers. Take a walk around our offices and you’ll see the empty desks of people out on trips, or hear people swapping stories about a place they have just visited. Land at your destination and discover your tour leader is local to the region.

Wherever you travel with us we’ll take you to the major highlights as well as along the route less taken. This gets you closer to the local people and the culture you came to discover. We promise to share our knowledge and expertise with you, and ensure you will come home with stories you will tell for years to come.

In Business Since 1977
