Rates subject to travel dates and hotel selection

Suggested Extensions

Why not add a few nights by the Red Sea to relax after your early morning starts and explore another side of Egypt?

Best Time to Travel

Due to Summer heat, which doesn’t mix well with sight seeing in the open, the best time to travel is October through to Easter.
