From London to Loch Ness: The Best Routes for Epic UK Self-Drive Tours
Are you ready to embark on an unforgettable adventure through the stunning landscapes of the United Kingdom? Look no further than self-drive tours, the perfect way to explore this diverse and captivating country at your own pace. With a wealth of picturesque destinations and scenic routes, the UK offers endless possibilities for those seeking an immersive travel experience. In this article, we’ll guide you through some of the best routes for epic UK self-drive tours, starting from London and leading all the way to the legendary Loch Ness.
The Classic English Countryside Route
Heading north from London, immerse yourself in the classic charm of England’s countryside. This route takes you through picturesque villages, rolling green hills, and historic landmarks that will leave you in awe. Begin your journey by driving towards Oxfordshire, where you can explore the prestigious Oxford University and wander through its enchanting streets lined with medieval architecture.
Continuing northwards, make a stop at Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare. Visit his childhood home and soak up the literary atmosphere before venturing further into the heart of England’s countryside.
Next on your itinerary is the breathtaking Peak District National Park. Drive along winding roads that snake through dramatic landscapes adorned with heather-covered moorlands and limestone cliffs. Take a leisurely walk or hike one of many trails to fully appreciate this area’s natural beauty.
The Scottish Highlands Adventure
Leaving England behind, cross over into Scotland to experience its awe-inspiring landscapes along one of its most iconic routes – The North Coast 500. This circular route begins in Inverness and takes you on a journey around Scotland’s northernmost coastline.
As you drive along this route, prepare to be mesmerized by rugged mountains, pristine beaches, ancient castles, and sparkling lochs. Don’t miss out on exploring famous attractions such as the Eilean Donan Castle, the fairy-tale-like Dunrobin Castle, and the mystical Loch Ness.
The Scottish Highlands offer endless opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Take a hike in the Cairngorms National Park, go wild swimming in one of its many lochs, or simply enjoy the tranquility of the breathtaking landscapes around you. With each passing mile, you’ll feel more connected to Scotland’s rich history and untamed beauty.
The Welsh Coastal Expedition
For those seeking coastal beauty and fascinating history, a self-drive tour along Wales’ stunning coastline is a must. Starting from Cardiff, head west towards Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. This rugged and diverse landscape boasts breathtaking cliffs, golden sandy beaches, and picturesque seaside towns.
Continue your journey northwards to Snowdonia National Park. Drive through winding mountain roads and be rewarded with panoramic views of majestic peaks and serene lakes. For adrenaline junkies, Snowdonia offers ample opportunities for hiking, rock climbing, or even zip-lining at Europe’s longest zip line attraction.
The Magical Irish Adventure
No UK self-drive tour would be complete without exploring Ireland’s enchanting landscapes. Begin your Irish adventure in Dublin and drive along the Wild Atlantic Way – a coastal route that stretches over 1,500 miles along Ireland’s western seaboard.
As you traverse this scenic route, marvel at dramatic cliffs like Slieve League and discover charming villages such as Dingle or Galway. Immerse yourself in Ireland’s rich culture by stopping at historic sites like Blarney Castle or exploring the vibrant streets of Dublin’s Temple Bar district.
Embarking on a UK self-drive tour allows you to create your own unique travel experience while immersing yourself in some of the most captivating landscapes this country has to offer. From London to Loch Ness, these routes will take you on an unforgettable journey through England’s countryside, Scotland’s Highlands, Wales’ coastline, and Ireland’s magical landscapes. So grab a map, hop in the car, and get ready for an epic adventure through the United Kingdom.

Egypt Tours & Holidays
Awesome ancient wonders, endless golden sands and atmospheric local souqs make Egypt the ultimate travel destination.
You’ve got to see it to believe it in Egypt – the chaos of Cairo (seriously, this city never stops); the bustling bazaars; the imposing glory of the Pyramids of Giza and the world’s most famous lion with a human head (the iconic Sphinx). Only in Egypt can you sail into the sunset on a felucca cruise along the Nile, jump on the back of a camel and ride into Luxor’s Valley of the Kings, then float facing towards the sky in the glittering expanse of the Red Sea. Take a moment as time stands still in Egypt.

Best time to visit egypt.
Egypt is blessed with lots of sunshine and very little rain. Generally, the hottest months are June to August, and the coolest month is January. Rainfall is negligible, except on the coast, with rain usually occurring during the winter months (December to March).
During the summer months (from June to August), daily temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius - perfect for snorkelling and soaking up the sun on the beaches of Sinai, but can prove challenging for some in the crowded streets and souqs of Cairo.
Choose to escape the crowds by travelling from March to May or September to November when the weather is milder, and there's the opportunity to experience Egypt during Ramadan and the celebrations of Eid (which marks the breaking of the fast). If you are planning to travel during Ramadan, it's important to consider that many restaurants and shops will either be closed or operating on reduced hours.

Culture and customs
Life in Egypt has been in a state of flux since the 2011 revolution. Many of the issues that motivated so many to take to the streets in protest continue to be points of contention, but Egyptians remain hopeful, relying on religion, family and humour to get them through, like they have for thousands of years. A strong sense of community binds people across the country. Families and communities support each other and there is a prevailing sense that everyone is in it together. For all these reasons, most express great pride in being Egyptian, despite their nation’s recent turmoil.
As a largely Muslim country (about 90% of the population is Muslim while most of the remaining 10% identify as Coptic Christian), Islam permeates daily activities. Life revolves around the five daily prayers and everything is closed on Friday, the Muslim holy day. A wide array of cultural norms, including how people dress and interact with the opposite sex, are influenced by religion. Women are largely defined by their role as a mother and matron of the house, whereas men are expected to be the provider.
Many Egyptians consider their country the gateway between the West and the rest of the Arab world, and take pride in their ability to mix tradition with modern influences. This mixing is most apparent in major cities, such as Cairo and Alexandria, where American fast-food chains can be found next to traditional cafes, secular attitudes are more common, and pop music rings through city streets.
Food and drink
With fragrant spices, fresh fruit and vegetables, and delicious sweets on offer, culinary adventures in Egypt are guaranteed. On many Intrepid trips you'll be given the opportunity to dine with a local family – this offers a great chance to see how meals are prepared and learn more about the ingredients.
Foods to try in Egypt
1. Hamam mahshi
A north African delicacy, hamam – roasted pigeon stuffed with cracked wheat and rice – can be found on the menu of most traditional Egyptian restaurants. You may need a few to fill up though, as they don’t contain a lot of meat. And be careful of all the tiny bones.
2. Ta'ameya (falafel)
Crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, these deep-fried balls of spiced fava beans are a Middle Eastern vegetarian staple. Usually served in a pita with salad, pickles and sesame-based tahina - buy it at a street stall for a quick, cheap meal.
Shops specializing in this popular ‘poor man’s dish’ can be found throughout Cairo. A hearty mix of rice, macaroni and lentils, chickpeas and fried onions, koshary is topped with a tomato-vinegar sauce.
4. Ful medames
Don't leave Egypt without trying the classic dish of ful medames, which can be traced back to pharaonic times. Consisting of slow-cooked fava beans, served with olive oil, parsley, garlic and lemon juice - add some spice by seasoning with chilli paste and eat with bread.
Delicious, sweet pastries are found in restaurants, markets and cafes in Egypt. Never was there a better time to live by the adage ‘Life is short, eat dessert first’.
Egypt is a mostly Muslim country, and any consumption of alcohol here is relatively low-key. There are many fantastic alternatives. Juice stands are common on main streets offering freshly squeezed banana, guava, or mango juice. Karkadai is a chilled, crimson drink brewed from hibiscus leaves (served hot in the winter). And tea (or shai) is the beverage of choice for most Egyptians, which is sipped throughout the day and with meals.

Geography and environment
Located in the north-east corner of Africa, Egypt shares its borders with Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Libya and Sudan, as well as the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Red Sea to the east. The two seas are connected by the man-made Suez Canal.
The remote triangle-shaped peninsula is largely characterised by limestone and desert, but also has a vibrant coral reef along the Red Sea coastline. Hot, dry desert covers most of the country’s terrain, with the Western Desert occupying much of the west, and the Arabian (or Eastern) Desert stretching the length of the eastern coast. These two regions are dissected by the Nile River, which runs the length of the country, emptying into the Mediterranean Sea. The Nile Valley, a narrow fertile band extending from the river, is the country’s only fertile land and where 98% of the population lives.
History and government
Napoleon Bonaparte, the infamous pint-sized French leader, invaded Egypt in 1798, seeking to set up a French colony. However, not long after, the French were repelled, and Egypt became a part of the Ottoman Empire once again.
From 1882, the British Army occupied Egypt to protect the Suez Canal. Muhammad Ali officially ruled from the early 1800s, and his family and successors continued to rule for decades (alongside and during British occupation) until overthrown by a military coup in 1952.
During World War II, Egypt became a crucial element in Britain's defence. The Italian Army tried to advance into Egypt in 1940 but was stopped by the British Army at Mersa Matruh. Egypt continued to serve as a vital base for British troops during World War II and despite the disruption, Egypt's shopkeepers and retail trade benefitted from the thousands of Allied troops staying in Egypt.
In 1953, Egypt was officially declared a republic and a year later, Colonel Nasser was declared Prime Minister, then President. In 1979, after decades of confrontation with neighbouring Israel, the historic Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty was signed. This agreement made Egypt the first Arab country to officially recognise Israel as a country - a significant step in the peace process. More recently, in February 2011, large scale protests and mass demonstrations resulted in the removal of President Mubarak after decades of autocratic rule.
Ancient Egypt has been the focus of much fascination, investigation, speculation and intrigue. It's hard to escape the education system without having studied Ancient Egypt in some way. Drawn in by the mighty pyramids, mysterious hieroglyphics, distinct burial rituals and animal-headed gods - scholars, students, historians and travellers are all amazed by this civilisation which has endured cycles of dynastic rule, invasion and natural disasters.
Through key archaeological finds, historians have been able to unravel some of the mysteries of this great land. What is known is that the daily life of the average Egyptian usually involved working in agriculture with the waters of the Nile providing fertile ground for planting of crops. Egyptians usually lived in modest homes with children and domestic pets. Professions were usually inherited - so if your father was a farmer, then so were you.
While most Egyptians led simple lives, dynasties of Pharaohs led lavish lifestyles, with the most well-known being Ramses II, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, Tutankhamun and Cleopatra. Huge monuments, imposing pyramids, golden artefacts and detailed paintings all hold details about pharaonic rule and succession, as well as commonly held beliefs about religion and the afterlife.
Spanning centuries and full of drama worthy of a soap opera, the epic history of Ancient Egypt is complex and we suggest you read about it before visiting.

Top 10 ancient wonders of Egypt
1. grand designs.
The original grand design - monumental and magnificent - the Pyramids of Giza are an impressive achievement in ancient engineering. Towering above the desert sands and standing proudly for centuries, the first glimpse of these stunning structures will render visitors breathless.
2. Stony enigma
Be captivated by the mysterious aura of the Great Sphinx of Giza. This monolithic mythical beast possesses a lion’s body and a human head - and has sat quietly in the desert sands for eons. Gaze at the Sphinx and try to work out the riddle of its existence.
3. Mighty Nile River
No trip to Egypt is complete without visiting the Nile River - the life force of Egypt that has flowed for centuries. A provider of irrigation, an essential travel route, home to hippos and crocodiles, and now a source of leisure for locals and travellers alike, the Nile is an aquatic link to Egypt’s ancient heritage.
4. Terrific temples
Discover an enormous open-air museum like no other. The awe-inspiring Temples of Karnak are filled with stately statues, immense columns and gigantic gateways. Explore this intriguing site and be left in no doubt about the brilliance of the ancient Egyptian civilisation.
5. Holy mountains
Embark on a trek to the top of Mt Sinai and witness an incredible golden sunrise to remember. A place of worship for many faiths, a pilgrimage to Mt Sinai reveals stunning scenery, an ancient monastery and historic chapels. An iconic highlight of Egypt for believers and non-believers alike, Mt Sinai is not to be missed.
6. Double happiness
Located in the Nile Valley, the unique Temple of Kom Ombo is a ‘double temple’ and a rare archaeological find. Dedicated to two gods, a visit here is a true highlight of an Egyptian escapade. Marvel at the well-preserved wall reliefs, try to decipher the hieroglyphics and honour the craftsmen who created this wonder.
7. Museum magic
Step into a dazzling world of antiquity at the Egyptian Museum. Be amazed by the glittering treasures recovered from King Tutankhamun’s tomb – with jewellery, furniture, chariots and that famous gold funerary mask, this pharaoh was certainly prepared for the afterlife.
8. Roman ruins
The Roman ruins of Kom el-Dikka in Alexandria may not be the biggest, but they are certainly among the best-preserved in Egypt, if not the world. Soak up the atmosphere of the Roman amphitheatre and imagine it in all its glory - packed with 800 spectators ready for action.
9. Colossal characters
Near the modern city of Luxor stand the imposing Colossi of Memnon. These massive stone statues of Amenhotep III, while badly damaged, still maintain an unmistakable air of authority. Stand below them and be dwarfed by the scale of these tremendous figures.
10. The ancient heart of Cairo
Wander the cobbled streets of Islamic Cairo and uncover the ancient heart of this chaotic city. Admire mosques, palaces and houses, and peruse the goods on offer at one of the world’s oldest bazaars. Dating back to medieval times, the Khan al-Khalili bazaar is where people have traded goods for centuries.
Souqs – or open-air bazaars – are both the best place to shop in Egypt and attractions in their own right. The biggest and most famous souq is the 500-year-old Khan El Khalili Bazaar in Cairo. Within the maze of narrow streets and laneways lie stalls selling jewellery, glass, copper, spices and artisan goods, along with more standard tourist fare. Quality can vary greatly so spend some time shopping around.
Like many markets around the world, bargaining is the norm, but Egyptians take it to another level. Expect to be offered tea (it can take that long) and for elaborate theatrics from the seller. While bazaars in Cairo tend to sell everything, visit Aswan’s bazaar for spices, incense and basketwork, and Luxor for cheaply priced alabaster figurines and vases. It's also a good idea to check with your local customs officials to ensure that you are able to bring certain items back into your home country.
Things to buy in Egypt
You’ll often see spices piled high in bazaars. In addition to making a great photo for Instagram, they’re often a good buy as long as you keep a couple of things in mind. Always buy whole spices rather than ground to ensure freshness and skip the ‘saffron’ – it’s actually safflower and tastes like dust.
Hand-blown Muski glass, recognizable by its air bubbles, comes in brilliant shades of blue and green and purple, and has been made in Egypt since medieval times. Be careful with this purchase though as it’s extremely fragile.
A kind of nameplate written in hieroglyphics. Most gold or silver shops sell these and many can customise them by engraving your name.
Festivals and events
After fasting for an entire month, Muslims celebrate the end of Ramadan with Eid al-Fitr, or ‘Feast of Breaking the Fast’. For three days, starting on the first day of the tenth month of the lunar calendar, people celebrate with feasts, family and festivals. Look for vendors selling kahk cookies (nut-filled cookies covered in powdered sugar) while taking in the festivities, a tasty treat synonymous with Eid for many locals.
Arguably the most important holiday in Egypt, the ‘Feast of Sacrifice’ is not one for vegetarians and vegans. About 70 days after Eid al-Fitr, sheep and goats are slaughtered (often in the middle of the street) for a mighty feast.
Each year on March 21st, Egyptians celebrate the coming of spring by spending the day outdoors. Join the locals for this ancient holiday by packing a picnic and heading to a park or public garden.
Abu Simbel Sun Festival
As if the two temples dedicated to Ramses II and Queen Nefertari weren’t impressive enough, they were constructed in such a way that twice a year, the sun’s rays reach its innermost chambers and illuminate three stone gods that reside within, while leaving Ptah (god of the underworld) in the dark. And those days just happen to be Ramses’s birthday (October 21) and coronation (February 21). Coincidence? We think not.

Do I need a visa to travel to Egypt?
Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveller. Entry requirements can change at any time, so it's important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Check the Essential Trip Information section of the itinerary for more information.
Is tipping customary in Egypt?
Tipping is customary for pretty much all services in Egypt. A tip of 10–15% is customary at cafes and restaurants and loose change is acceptable for food purchases from street vendors and markets. It’s also a good idea to tip local guides and drivers USD 2–4 per day.
What is the internet access like in Egypt?
Internet access is growing in Egypt, with internet cafes and Wi-Fi hotspots becoming increasingly common in large cities, especially Cairo, though access may be limited in smaller town and remote areas.
Can I use my mobile phone while in Egypt?
Mobile phone coverage is generally good in Egypt’s urban areas, but may not be available in remote and desert areas. Ensure global roaming is activated with your service provider before leaving home.
What are the toilets like in Egypt?
Squat toilets are most common in Egypt, although Western-style flushable toilets can be found in larger hotels and some tourist areas.
What will it cost for a...?
Egypt's unit of currency is the Egyptian Pound (EGP). Here's what you can expect to pay for a:
A couple of pastries = EGP 49 Cup of tea or coffee = EGP 35-50 Falafel sandwich from a street stall = EGP 92 Sit-down dinner at a local restaurant = EGP 200-400
Can I drink the water in Egypt?
Drinking tap water isn’t recommended in Egypt. Remember to avoid drinks with ice and to peel fruit before eating it. Help the environment and try to avoid buying bottled water. Instead, fill a reusable water bottle with filtered water. Ask your leader or hotel where to find filtered water.
Are credit cards accepted widely in Egypt?
Credit cards are usually accepted by modern hotels, large retailers and tourist sites but are less commonly accepted by smaller vendors in remote areas. Always carry enough cash for smaller purchases in case credit cards are not an option.
What is ATM access like in Egypt?
ATMs are commonly found in larger cities, like Cairo and Alexandria, near shopping centres, tourist areas and 5-star hotels, but are far less common in small towns and rural areas. Make sure you have enough cash before leaving urban areas.

Is Egypt a safe destination for LGBTQIA+ travellers?
Discretion is advised for LGBTQI-travellers in Egypt. Though homosexuality is not officially outlawed, gay men have been prosecuted using debauchery and public morals laws and given long prison sentences. Be aware that signals are ambiguous in Egypt as men commonly hold hands, link arms and greet each other with a kiss on the cheek. As long as you use common sense, travel in Egypt should not be a problem.
For more detailed and up-to-date advice, we recommend visiting Equaldex or ILGA before you travel.
If you are travelling solo on an Intrepid group tour, you will share accommodation with a passenger of the same gender as per your passport information. If you don’t identify with the gender assigned on your passport, please let us know at the time of booking and we’ll arrange the rooming configuration accordingly. A single supplement is available on some tours for travellers who do not wish to share a room.
What to wear in Egypt
Summer temperatures can get very high, so light fabrics like linen, cotton and athletic gear made to take the heat are best. If you’re travelling outside of winter, don’t underestimate the cool change that can come in the evenings, especially if you’re spending the night in the desert or on a Nile cruise. Avoid packing anything in white – desert dust will quickly turn those light-coloured clothes a not-so-delightful shade of brown.
Where will I stay in Egypt?
Travelling with Intrepid is a little bit different. We endeavour to provide travellers with an authentic experience to remember, so we try to keep accommodation as unique and traditional as possible.
These are some of the types of accomodations you will stay in:
Felucca Glide down the Nile on a traditional Egyptian felucca; sleep on deck under the stars as the sun slides away for the day - a must-do experience while in Egypt. Homestay
Be welcomed into the home of a local family and experience the cuisine, culture and customs of Egypt firsthand during your stay. A truly authentic travel experience like no other.
Desert camp Travel deep into the White Desert to camp under the stars amid surreal scenery. This is a rare chance to experience the remote wonder and isolation of the Egyptian desert.
Beach hut With calming Red Sea views and fresh sea breezes, this rustic breach abode is all about life’s simple pleasures.
How will I travel around Egypt?
Intrepid believes half the fun of experiencing a new country is getting there, and getting around once there! Where possible, Intrepid uses local transport options and traditional modes of transport - which usually carry less of an environmental impact, support small local operators and are heaps more fun.
Depending on which trip you're on while in Egypt, you may find yourself travelling by camel.
A mode of transport that's been used for centuries, riding a camel is a definite must when visiting Egypt. Swaying through the desert sands on a 'ship of the desert' is an unforgettable Egyptian experience.
How do I stay safe and healthy while travelling?
Intrepid takes the health and safety of its travellers seriously, and takes every measure to ensure that trips are safe, fun and enjoyable for everyone. We recommend that all travellers check with their government or national travel advisory organisation for the latest information before departure:

also provides useful health information. Go to: http://www.who.int/en/
Do I need to purchase travel insurance before travelling?
Absolutely. All passengers travelling with Intrepid are required to purchase travel insurance before the start of their trip. Your travel insurance details will be recorded by your leader on the first day of the trip. Due to the varying nature, availability and cost of health care around the world, travel insurance is very much an essential and necessary part of every journey.
For more information on insurance, please go to: Travel Insurance
What is it like travelling on a small group tour?
Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or you’re about to embark on your first trip, travelling can be as intimidating as it is exciting. That's the beauty of a small group tour. From handling the logistics and organising amazing cultural activities to local leaders who know each destination like the back of their hand (like which street has the best markets and where to get the most authentic food), travelling on a small group tour with Intrepid will give you unforgettable travel experiences without the hassle that comes with exploring a new place. Plus, you'll have ready-made friends to share the journey with. All you have to do is turn up with a healthy sense of adventure and we’ll take care of the rest.
Does my trip to Egypt support The Intrepid Foundation?
Yes, all Intrepid trips support the Intrepid Foundation. In fact, we make a donation on behalf of every traveller. Trips to Egypt directly support our foundation partner, Animal Care in Egypt .
Animal Care in Egypt

Can i drink tap water in Egypt?
Don't drink the tap water - it is highly chlorinated. However, with enough time in Egypt, you could potentially grow accustomed to the water. This doesn't mean that the tap water is polluted, it simply means that you are not used to it, and you might get stomach problems. This happened to most people when they visit a country for the first time. They were simply not used to water there. It's a similar situation here. It is advisable to drink Bottled water during your entire holiday. That is why it is strongly advisable that you don't drink the tap water, and use it only for washing and brushing your teeth.
What is the best time to visit Egypt 2024 ?
Enjoy Egypt Tours From September until March. It is the perfect time when the weather is good and mild. From September until mid-November, when it is very nice and the temperatures are pleasant for all activities - around 25 C to 15 C. mid-Nov until the end of February is wintertime when temperatures during the day are around 12 or 15 C, and at night can drop to about 7 or 8 C. In March and April, the weather is still so nice and travelers can enjoy the Easter vacation. From May to September is the summer season. Spending summertime in a desert climate does not appeal to most travelers. Average daytime temperatures hover in the high 80s and low to mid-90s, although they can jump up into three digits in the South as in Luxor and Aswan. Summer is really hot here, prices go down and it is a good chance for travelers with a tight budget.
How is the weather in Egypt?
It is usually hot and sunny. winter falls between November and January, and the peak of the summer months is between June and August. Winters are generally mild, although temperatures can fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius) at night. In the Western Desert. Cairo and areas of the Nile Delta may experience a few rainy days during winter. Summers can be unbearably hot, especially in the desert and other areas of the country's interior. In Cairo, average summer temperatures regularly exceed 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius), while the record high for Luxor and Aswan, popular tourist destinations on the banks of the River Nile, is 110 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius).
Is Egypt safe to travel to ?
Safety and security are our first and foremost concerns! Egypt is a very safe country with a low crime rate. Now with the coronavirus outbreak, accommodations and sightseeing nationwide have finalized sterilization and disinfection in light of the Egyptian government's efforts to implement precautionary measures against the COVID-19. In addition, our company has followed the same procedures to make all our staff, guides, and drivers are well-trained with the current events to prevent and stop the spread of this outbreak. Traveling the world is a joyful experience and we want to do our part to keep the anticipation stress-free.
What are the best things to do in Egypt?
There are many things to do in Egypt during your visit depending on your interests and character. Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, and Aswan Nile cruise must be your first priority if you are a history and culture lover. You must visit the pyramids of Giza, enjoy a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan and enjoy visiting the most important tourist attractions in Luxor and Aswan. You can visit the city of Hurghada, Marsa Alam, or Sharm el-Sheikh Red Sea for relaxation and enjoy many activities there such as diving, snorkeling, sunbathing, or swimming. You may like to go on a safari trip in the western desert if you are an adventurer. Many other activities are available in every single Egyptian city
Should I visit Egypt during Summer?
The high season for tourism is all year with winter and spring being peak season for cultural travels with lots of sightseeing. Weather in Egypt is perfect for many kinds of tourism, and if coming in June, July, and August, head for the seaside resorts. Those months are very warm with temperatures that can reach around 45C. and the humidity is about 70 to 80%, but it is bearable with the sea and large swimming pools nearby. So the period of the high summer season is also a bit busy as hotels fill up with tourists from all over the world looking for a bargain, lots of sunshine, diving, snorkeling, etc. It is also a primary vacation time in Europe. If you come in the deep summer season you can still enjoy it because you can always sightsee early in the morning and go again at night when the sunsets. You will definitely need good sunscreen and a lot of liquids to drink with a nice hat on your head. Summer is a good time for people looking for good rates in accommodation and other services.
What is the dress code in Egypt?
Egypt is a Muslim country and the dress code is towards the conservative side, especially for women. That being said, we are used to seeing travelers from all over the world. My suggestion would be to wear light clothes and not to wear short shorts, short skirts and alike to avoid the occasional unwanted stare. But it's really up to you. When you visit religious places (synagogues, churches, and mosques) you do need to cover your shoulders and wear over the knee dresses, if you are planning to wear one of course. If you plan to attend the Nile dinner cruise, there is no need for formal wear unless you want to make that night a special night! Also, you will be sharing this experience with other travelers so you can dress however you feel most comfortable.
How to get visa to visit Egypt?
You can get your visa when you arrive at Cairo Airport. It is an easy process for USA, UK, Canadian, Australian and European citizens. The visa is simply a stamp (like a mail or postage stamp) that you buy from the visa office, at the port of entry just before the immigration booth. The visa will cost you $25 US Dollars and after buying it; you just stick it on any empty page on your passport. Once you have bought your visa you then stand in line to get your passport stamped by the immigration officer. You can also apply for E-Visa via the official electronic visa portal: www.visa2egypt.gov.eg
How many days in Egypt is enough?
Your Egypt Tours travel agency recommends two weeks so that you can enjoy the temples and tombs of Luxor and Aswan, explore the sights of Cairo, and relax in the Red Sea islands and nature reserves.
What is the best Nile River cruise?
There are many Nile cruises. Not to name one but your choice depends on many things to put in mind such as the number of nights you want to spend on the cruiser, your budget, and the standard of the Nile cruise. We recommend you choose a 5-star luxury Nile cruise, and if you are looking for a private Nile River cruise you can choose Dahabiya cruises, it is only for the small-group tour, about 15 people. Most cruises have. There is another way of cruising the Nile, which is the Felucca boat. It is traditional and charming but it is cheap as long as it will be ok to sleep on the deck exposed to mosquitos and most of these boats do not have a toilet
Our Happy Customers
Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact Your Egypt Tours, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Egypt. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.
I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2) to Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention
Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. The accommodations and travel was seamlessly arranged by customer service rep, Mona, and we visited so many of the famous Egyptian antiquities. I would not have done the trip without the very knowledgeable guides, Ashraf and Mamdouh

Best Egypt tours: Cairo, Nile cruises and the pyramids
Wednesday April 12 2023, 09:00am
The Great Pyramid, the Valley of the Kings, the Nile, the Red Sea — these very names are redolent of grand adventures and the golden age of travel. Egypt has so many knock-out sights, it’s hard to know where to begin. A tour operator will help you make sense of it all and plan your time most wisely, leaving you free to concentrate on enjoying yourself.
There are myriad options, whatever your time, budget, group size and interests, though almost all will include some sort of sailing trip down the Nile. Most will also provide expert local guides who can bring the ancient history of the country to life and organise day-to-day logistics. Be sure to check what’s included in the itinerary when booking; some will cover everything except gratuities and travel insurance; others will sort out domestic travel and accommodation but otherwise leave you to your own devices.

1. Slow boat to Aswan, Wild Frontiers
Allow life to really slow down on this unique ten-day trip along the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, with four nights spent on a private houseboat. You’ll visit the big temple complexes, including Karnak, the Valley of the Kings and Abu Simbel, but there are a load of attractions included that aren’t on traditional itineraries, including Daraw camel market and the ancient stone quarries at El Silsila. There’s also an emphasis on local life away from historic sites, with stops at small villages on the riverbank likely to be a highlight. The rate doesn’t include flights.
Group size 4-12 Price ££
2. Egyptian family adventure, Exodus
Riding a camel in front of the pyramids, catching a sleeper train from Cairo to Aswan, sailing on a felucca down the Nile, watching a light show at Karnak temple, snorkelling in the Red Sea — what child isn’t going to like that? These are some of the activities on offer as part of this nine-day family tour of Egypt, with tour guide, flights and meals included. The itinerary packs in a lot but there’s still plenty of time for you to explore on your own or to relax; another bonus for families is that all the hotels have swimming pools.
Group size 8-20 Price ££
3. Explore Egypt, Intrepid
With 15 days at your disposal, you cover a lot of ground on this small group tour run by Intrepid in conjunction with Lonely Planet. You’ll start in Cairo before heading down to Luxor and Aswan for temple visits and a Nile river cruise on a felucca; you’ll also get to relax on the Red Sea, and head to the Mediterranean city of Alexandria. One of the highlights is a night spent at a homestay in a Nubian village near Aswan. Note that there is a lot of free time on the itinerary, and you’ll need to pay for entry into any sites you visit on your own; flights are also excluded from the price.
Group size 1-16 Price £
4. Dreams of Egypt, Wendy Wu
Two of the many highlights on this 11-day trip are the means of transport you’ll use to get between locations. There’s the first-class sleeper train you’ll take from Cairo to Luxor, having already visited the pyramids, old Cairo and Alexandria; and there’s the boat you’ll call home for four nights as you cruise between Luxor and Aswan, hopping on and off to visit historic sites along the Nile valley. Before flying home, you’ll get to see the pyramids again — this time at night, to enjoy the Sound and Light show. All guides, meals and flights are included.
Group size 8-18 Price ££
5. Family Egyptian Sphinx, pyramids and Nile river, Explore!
This is the sort of family trip that’ll form life-long memories for you and your kids. You’ll visit all the famous sights you’ve heard about, including the pyramids of Giza and the Valley of the Kings, and you get to experience a proper adventure along the way. Likely highlights for your children are spending the night sleeping on the deck of a felucca, playing with local kids in a Nubian village and snorkelling over the reefs at the Red Sea. The pace is geared to family life — not too long spent at historic sights, with time left for your own pursuits or the hotel pool on most days. Flights are not included.
Group size 4-20 Price £
6. Classic Alexandria mini adventure, G Adventures
With only three days, what can you do in Egypt? Quite a lot, as it turns out. G Adventures has a three-day itinerary that whisks you from Cairo to Alexandria and back again. You’ll spend time in Coptic and Islamic Cairo, go on a food tour through the city, take a felucca ride down the Nile, have a seafood lunch by the Mediterranean, and visit a Roman theatre and catacombs in Alexandria. As flights aren’t included in the rate, this could be a good option to tag on to the beginning or end of a longer holiday in Egypt.
Group size maximum 15 Price ££
7. Wonders of the Nile: Cairo to Aswan, Riviera Travel
Home for 14 nights is the MS Mövenpick Darakum, which, with 52 cabins, is one of the larger boats to take to the waters of the Nile. Unlike most tours, you’ll journey on board all the way south to Aswan from Cairo, rather than start from Luxor. You’ll also stop at a number of sites not normally covered on other itineraries, including the temples at Dendera and Abydos and the ruined city of Amarna. There’s plenty of leisure time, too — we recommend spending this lying on a day bed on the sun deck and watching life drift by in front of you.
Group size maximum 50 Price ££
8. Egypt: Ancient wonders of Cairo and the Nile, Cox & Kings
Four of the nights on this eight-day itinerary are spent on the Sanctuary Nile Adventurer, a supremely comfortable 32-cabin boat complete with swimming pool, sun deck, library and games room. You’ll spend the days drifting down the Nile in the company of expert Egyptologists, who’ll give lectures on board and accompany you on the frequent trips to ancient sites along the river, including the Valley of the Queens, Philae Temple and Karnak. The trip is bookended with time in Cairo, with visits to both the pyramids and the Egyptian Museum.
Group size maximum 18 Price ££
9. Felucca odyssey and Dahab explorer, Travel Talk
You’ll visit more sights than you knew existed on this 13-day tour, which takes you from Cairo down the Nile to Luxor and Aswan and on to the Sinai peninsula. The pyramids, Sphinx and the more popular Nile valley attractions are all here, alongside a good number of lesser-visited temples. After such a packed itinerary, you’ll appreciate the three days spent at the laid back Red Sea resort of Dahab. There are options to add extra activities to the tour, including diving, quad-biking and camel treks. You’ll also need to budget for flights and most lunches and dinners.
Group size 12-42 Price £
10. Egypt and the Red Sea for teenagers, On the Go
Covering Cairo, the Nile valley and the Red Sea, this is a family-orientated trip that covers some of Egypt’s best experiences. Throughout, there’s a balance between activities that parents and grandparents might prefer (temple and museum visits) and those more geared towards teenagers, such as snorkelling and water sports. Camel rides and felucca trips are guaranteed to bring all together. There’s free time built into the schedule each day, and all the hotels have pools or beach access, should you just wish to relax. You’ll need to factor in extra money for flights, entrance fees and guide tips.
Group size 4-18 Price £
11. Ultimate Egypt: Culture on the Nile, Black Tomato
This tour covers the traditional highlights of the Nile: Cairo, Aswan and Luxor. But it is so much more than that. The magic lies in the small, unique moments experienced along the way. These might be a sunset camel ride along the west bank of the Nile near Aswan; joining a local family for an Egyptian feast at their home in Luxor; meeting master craftsmen in Cairo’s Khan el-khalili market; and taking an after-hours tour of the Egyptian Museum. Black Tomato suggests six days for the tour but can tailor to your requirements; flights are excluded from their rates.
Group size private tour Price £££
12. Taste of the Nile, Original Travel
You’re not going to get much closer to a true Agatha Christie experience in Egypt than by boarding the very same ship that took her down the Nile in the 1930s: the SS Sudan. The 19th-century steam ship has been restored to its original full glory, with teak decks, belle époque decor and period fittings. The five days on board, drifting from Luxor to Aswan, are just one highlight of the ten-day trip, which also includes guided visits to the Great Sphinx and pyramids of Giza, the holy city of Abydos and the temples at Edfu, Kom Ombo and the Valley of the Kings. The tour includes meal, guiding, all flights and the services of a local concierge.

13. Cairo and beach, Audley Travel
If you’ve never thought to combine a city and beach break in Egypt, think again. Audley Travel has an 11-day itinerary that allows you to experience all the cultural highlights of Cairo, including the pyramids and the Khan el-khalili market, with six nights at a Red Sea resort. Here you can do as little or as much as you’d like — taking a day trip into the desert for a camel ride, learning to dive, or simply heading to the spa. There’s plenty of free time in both destinations (though note you’ll pay extra for activities outside those scheduled). Flights are included in the rates.
14. Cleopatra’s Egypt, Andante Travel
Andante Travel specialises in creating archaeological, historical and cultural itineraries led by expert guides and lecturers. If you’d like to get a truly in-depth understanding of ancient Egypt, all the while enjoying luxury accommodation, meals and transport, their eight-day Cleopatra’s Egypt trip is the one for you. It covers a truly staggering number of sites between Cairo and Alexandria, and each is brought to life by an expert lecturer. You’ll visit Giza and Old Cairo, of course, but lesser-known attractions are also covered, including the former capital of Memphis and the fourteen pyramids of Abu Sir. Flights are extra.
Group size 18 average Price £££
15. Temples and tombs, Untold Story Travel
Untold Story Travel can create a fully customisable tour for you, with expert guiding, top-notch accommodation and atmospheric restaurants included throughout. On this seven-day temples and tombs itinerary, you’ll travel from Cairo to Aswan, staying in venerable hotels including the Old Cataract and the Winter Palace. Your very own personal Egyptologist accompanies you to sites such as the Khan el-khalili market and the Valley of the Kings, as well as more unusual ones including the Saqqara pyramids, the Solar Boat Museum and the Aswan High Dam. Days are full and varied, and you’ll feel completely immersed in Egyptian culture after only a week.
16. Ultimate Red Sea, Blue O Two
Dive specialists Blue O Two aren’t exaggerating when they call this itinerary the “ultimate Red Sea”. For ten days, you’ll live aboard the Blue Melody, a 26-capacity vessel with twin and double cabins. The boat travels from Hurghada around the coast to remote off-shore locations near Sharm El Sheikh, with several dives planned for each day. There’s a chance to see dolphins, sharks and shipwrecks and explore marine parks. Note that this is for experienced divers only; you’ll need to have 30 logged dives under your belt to book. You’ll also need to sort out your own flights.
Group size maximum 26 Price £
17. Luxury Egypt with Oberoi Zahra, Steppes Travel
If you’d like to travel down the Nile on a boat with all the facilities of an international hotel, book this 13-day, customisable itinerary with Steppes Travel. You’ll spend five days on the Oberoi Zahra — a 27-cabin river cruiser complete with pool, spa, fitness centre and cigar lounge. There’s time to enjoy life on the boat in between visits to temples and other on-shore attractions, accompanied by expert Egyptologists. The land-based accommodation is also pretty special, and might include the historic Winter Palace in Luxor and the Old Legend Cataract in Aswan. Rates exclude flights.
18. Classic Nile, Abercrombie & Kent
If an Egypt tour to you means the Nile and the ancient pharaonic sites along its banks, the classic Nile itinerary offered by luxury operator Abercrombie & Kent has your name written all over it. The five-night trip takes you between Luxor and Aswan, with most of that time spent on the Sanctuary Nile Adventurer, a beautifully designed boat with 32 cabins, all with river views. An expert guide will help bring ancient Egypt to life on the many shore excursions to temples and ruins. The tour also includes a night at the Sofitel Winter Palace in Luxor and a felucca sailing trip, but excludes flights.
19. Nile cruise, Nour el Nile
Here’s something really special — the chance to sail down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan on exquisitely designed dahabiyas, or houseboats. There are six to choose from, and each is beautifully decorated with large decks and comfortable social spaces. The five-night itineraries skip the more popular temple complexes in favour of smaller and less-known sights, so you feel like you’re making fresh discoveries every day and don’t have to battle crowds. A staff of 15 is on hand to make your trip as relaxed or as educational as you’d like.

Egypt Tours from UK = Memories of a Lifetime
Whether you choose one of the many Egypt tour packages we offer, or whether you decide to take advantage of our incredibly popular customized Egypt tours from UK, you can rest assured that it will be a holiday you’ll never forget. When you only have a limited amount of time to explore a country, you want to make the most of that time by visiting all the best attractions. This can be quite a challenge when you visit Egypt simply because the country is home to such a vast number of Egypt tourist attractions .
Our tours have been meticulously planned so that our customers get to experience as much of this ancient land as they can during their stay. We also believe that variety is the spice of life, and for this reason, package deals like our Nile cruise holidays include so much more than just a cruise along the Nile River. Our Egypt desert adventure packages are no different either. Regardless of what package tour you choose, you will still get to see all the most famous attractions, and you’ll do it in style.
Our SCUBA diving holidays are also immensely popular, and it’s hardly surprising considering that they all include a Nile River cruise and visits to all the most infamous attractions.
All our Egypt tours from UK start in Cairo, and most include at least a two or three day stay in the city, during which time you’ll get taken to see attractions such as the Great Pyramids of Giza; the Sphinx and so much more. If you book one of the cruise packages, then you’ll fly to Luxor or travel there on an overnight sleeper train after your stay in Cairo, since this is where most cruises start.
Passport and Visa Requirements for UK Citizens
If you book Egypt tours from the UK and you are going to be traveling on a British passport, you can now apply online for an Egyptian e-Visa prior to traveling to Egypt. If you would like to apply for an e-Visa you will need to sign up for an account on the official Egypt e-Visa portal which you can find here .
British passport holders can also get a visa on arrival at any international airport when they arrive in Egypt, or they can apply for visas at any Egyptian Embassy or Egyptian Consulate in the United. The costs of the various Egyptian visas are as follows:
- Single entry e-Visa – A single entry e-Visa costs £25.00 and it allows you to remain in the country for up to 60 days.
- Multiple entry e-Visa – A multiple entry e-Visa costs £60.00 and allows you to remain in the country for up to 90 days.
- Visa-on-arrival – A visa-on-arrival costs £25.00 and allows you to remain in the country for up to 30 days.
- Single or multiple entry visa at an embassy or consulate – If you apply for your visa at an embassy or consular office prior to traveling to Egypt, it costs £20.00 for a single entry tourist visa and £32.00 for a multiple entry tourist visa, and allows you to remain in the country for up to 60 or 90 days depending on which visa you applied for.
- Single entry business visa – £65.00
- Multiple entry business visa – £105.00
As is the case with many countries, you will be refused entry if your passport is valid for less than six months as from the last day of your stay.
NOTE: People traveling on a British passport can visit and stay at Sinai resorts for a period of up to 15 days without the need for a visa. If you only intend staying in one or more Sinai resorts, you can obtain a free Entry Permission stamp at Sharm el Sheikh, Saint Catherine and Taba airports. However, if you want to leave the area or stay for more than 15 days, you will have to go to one of these airports to obtain a visa.
When is the Best Time for Visiting Egypt?
Because we offer so many different packages , it’s possible for you to visit Egypt any time of the year. However, the summer months are typically very hot, and many visitors, although not all, find the extreme heat uncomfortable.
If most of your trip to Egypt is going to be spent in Cairo or at the Red Sea Coast, then the weather shouldn’t be much of a problem regardless of when you visit. However, since most of our Egypt tours from UK include a ton of sightseeing, we recommend booking your holiday in the cooler months, from October to April.
Staying Safe While Traveling in Egypt
Egypt is not only a spectacular destination, but also a very safe destination. Nonetheless, there is always a certain amount of risk, regardless of where about in the world you go. A few general safety precautions can spell the difference between a great holiday and a disastrous one. We personally recommend the following to make sure you stay safe while touring Egypt:
- Keep valuables in the safes which are generally available in all major hotels
- Avoid large gatherings and avoid walking around in quite unfamiliar places after dark
- Always follow any and all safety advice offered by tour guides and/or our company representatives
- Avoid confrontation
- Avoid getting into discussions about politics and/or religion
- Follow the instructions given by your tour guide
