Ancient pyramids, sparkling oceans and a powerful history await

The ultimate cultural experience, explore the famous pyramids

Welcome to Egypt; a land of ancient cities, famous architecture, sweeping rivers and sparkling oceans that charm visitors of all ages and interests. There’s a reason that travellers are obsessed with the golden sands and intriguing mysteries of this unique North African country; it offers an unparalleled cultural experience that will stay with you long after you’ve landed back home. 

A stay in Cairo, the country’s capital, will offer you the chance to explore Egypt's biggest city. Relax in one of many exquisite five-star hotels or don your sunhat and wander the old, medieval quarters of the city to find alleys with spice-filled markets, bazaars, mosques, and tradespeople. 

A little beyond the city, you’ll find the legendary Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, and the house of mummification at the Valley Temple. 

Undoubtedly our favourite way to explore the cities and sights along the Nile River is by luxury cruise liner to discover incredible ancient places like Luxor, the city of a hundred doors. Here, in an area of 417 square kilometres, lie some of the most majestic temples, such as the Valley of the Kings, where the legendary Tutankhamun lies and the Queen Hatshepsut Temple. 

If it's sandy beaches, relaxation, and colourful coral reefs you seek, then you won’t be disappointed. Head to Almaza Bay on Egypt’s Mediterranean for luxury resorts, fine dining and crystal-clear waters. Sharm al-Sheikh, on the Southern reaches of the Red Sea, boasts brilliant white sand beaches and resorts that are fun for all the family. Another favourite is Dahab, which lies a little further North and offers world-class kitesurfing or snorkelling; intrepid folk can make their way to the Blue Lagoon to camp on the wild beach sands under an impeccable Egyptian star-scape. 

Featured Egypt Trips

Most travellers begin their journey in the capital Cairo, where you can explore the city itself and visit the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Then board a luxury cruise and float along the Nile to Aswan and Luxor and finish your trip at one of Egypt’s exquisite coastal resorts to unwind and soak up the sun; fun for the whole family.

For those seeking more adventure, a tour of Egypt can also be tied up with a journey into nearby Jordan to discover more of the Middle East’s magic.

"This was a dream trip I had thought about for years and somehow they managed to exceed what I had hoped for. Could not have asked for more."

"An outstanding experience with Wayfairer, Cat and Juan helped to organise, and manage, an amazing safari for a group of six. Their meticulous planning, endless enthusiasm and huge knowledge of the area meant that we had a truly unforgettable experience, we even had a fabulous birthday party in the middle of the Mara. The highest recommendation is that we plan to use Wayfairer again and again!"

"This was my second trip with Wayfairer - my first (to Africa) was so amazing, I was worried that I would be disappointed.....not a chance. Once again, the itinerary, the guides, the little touches, were superb. I am already thinking about what trip I will have Wayfairer plan next! For anyone trying to decide where to go - Peru was absolutely amazing! It may be one of the most under-rated countries.
