Discover Collection

Meticulously curated, guided walking holiday itineraries that delve into the culture, wildlife, cuisine, and rich history of the world.


Holiday Highlights

  • Explore Cairo, Aswan and Luxor with an expert guide, uncovering temples, bazaars, and Nubian culture.
  • Sail by premium cruise ship between Luxor and Aswan, and open-air felucca sailboats.
  • Immerse yourself in Islamic and Coptic Cairo.
  • Enjoy a meal with a local family to better understand modern Egypt.
  • Marvel at the statue of Ramesses II at Abu Simbel.

Of all the ancient cultures from around the world it is probably Ancient Egypt that most captures the imagination of western Europeans. Tutankhamun, the Great Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, the Rosetta Stone and The Valley of the Kings are all widely known. Perhaps the biggest driving force for this was the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922. This made news around the world. The fact that we have just passed the 100th anniversary of the discovery has brought the story back into focus. Some of us may remember the popularity of the British Museum exhibition of Tutankhamun’s treasure in the 1970’s, probably one of the most culturally resonant museum exhibitions ever staged in Britain. On a more trivial note, Indiana Jones introduced Ancient Egypt to a new audience. But why is it so well known? Join us on the holiday and the answer will become immediately obvious!

Life in Egypt has always stemmed from the River Nile so history can be enjoyed at river cities of Luxor and Aswan. However, sailing down the river is the finest way of truly understanding the country. This holiday includes a Nile cruise ship between Luxor and Aswan visiting temples, observing villages and smiling children, bird life and ancient farming practices. Discover ancient hieroglyphics, explore Islamic and Coptic Cairo, wander colourful bazaars, sample local cuisine, and come face to face with Egyptian hospitality.

You’ll never forget the first time you stare up at the pointed spire of the Great Pyramid of Giza or hear the call to prayer sound out across the city at sunset. Egypt awaits, and its wonders are ready to be unveiled.
