Uncover ancient wonders and cruise the legendary Nile

Egypt enthrals culture seekers with its wealth of archaeological sites. These Ozymandian ruins offer us glimpses of a 5,000-year-old civilisation – its ancient people, its powerful pharaohs and its pantheon of gods.

Egypt’s most famous landmarks are the natural starting point. Just outside bustling Cairo you’ll find the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx: monumental icons whose scale is best appreciated in person. But there is much more to see on a holiday to Egypt.

Cox & Kings has the expertise to show you the very best of this classic destination, whether you’re looking for a small-group tour or tailor-made holiday.

Highlights of Egypt

Cruising the River Nile

Many extraordinary sights lie along the banks of the Nile, which watered the cities of Egypt’s ancient dynasties. These include the temple complexes of Karnak and Luxor, the Philae Temple on Agilkia Island, and the Valley of the Kings, where Howard Carter discovered the gilded resting place of King Tutankhamun.

An Egypt Nile cruise is the perfect way to combine these highlights. Cox & Kings escorted tours to Egypt include multi-day Nile cruises, taking you between ports in style. On an Egypt Nile cruise with us, you’re joined by Egyptologists who illuminate each excursion with their expert insights, bringing the land of the pharaohs to life.

Visiting the Pyramids of Giza

No trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to the last standing of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: The Great Pyramid of Giza. Witness the remaining legacy of a fascinating early civilisation and absorb the sheer scale of the pyramids first-hand. You will marvel at the feat of their construction, which remains a mystery to this day. We recommend being guided around the pyramids by an Egyptologist, so all your burning questions can be answered. Nearby, you can also be astounded by the sight of the enigmatic Sphinx.

Exploring Egypt's museums

You can explore more of this ancient legacy in Egypt’s celebrated museums. Spanning 81,000 square metres of Giza, the Grand Egyptian Museum is set to be the world’s largest archaeological museum and will display the complete Tutankhamun collection. Its predecessor, Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, still houses its own impressive collection of antiquities and is a worthy stop. In Aswan, home to five of the UNESCO-listed Nubian Monuments, you can visit the Nubian Museum to see treasures retrieved ahead of the building of Aswan Dam.

Beyond the archaeology

Of course, Egypt is more than its astounding archaeology. Head into the cities to explore its contemporary culture, browsing souks and sampling traditional cuisine; or venture out to the national parks to admire the country’s natural beauty. Northern cities such as Alexandria look out onto the clement Mediterranean, while the east of the country skirts the Red Sea, with its crystalline waters, gold sands and snorkel-worthy reefs. Meanwhile, 4x4 drives and camel rides can take you into a desert of rippling dunes and otherworldly massifs.
