On The Go Tours | Egypt | Travel to the land of the Pharaohs

Travel to the land of the Pharaohs on our range of tours or discover Egypt's ancient treasures on that special tailor-made holiday. Be sure to plan ahead with our handy Egypt travel guide.

Home to one of the world’s first great civilisations and more ancient wonders than you can shake a stick at, Egypt needs little introduction. With world famous pyramids, tomb strewn Valley of the Kings and the mighty temples of Abu Simbel, Egypt has attracted travellers since classical times. But there's more to Egypt than pharaohs, mummies and hieroglyphics. Take a luxury cruise or sail aboard a felucca on the longest river in the world - the Nile, or experience world class diving and snorkelling in the Red Sea.

As a leading operator in Egypt, we offer a wide range of trips in 2019 and 2020 from guided group and private journeys that cover the most popular spots to tailor-made holidays and special itineraries that take in the Sun Festival at Abu Simbel.

Aaron’s TOP TIP # Booking your Visa in advance can be time consuming and far more expensive. Wait until you arrive in Egypt to pick up your Visa for 30 USD.
