Luxury Holidays to Egypt

From the monumental pyramids of Giza to the colossal Valley of the Kings, the captivating River Nile to the colourful coral reefs of the Red Sea, a luxury holiday to Egypt with Lightfoot Travel combines ancient treasures with natural wonders.

The oldest tourist destination on Earth, Egypt is paradise for explorers and lovers of ancient history. Start your explorations in the chaotic yet beautiful city of Cairo, with its frenetic streets, bustling souks, and dual religions – the haunting call to prayer and soaring minarets of Islamic mosques sit alongside early Coptic Christian churches. Marvel at the pyramids, meet the majestic Sphinx, and gaze at the mask of Tutankhamun in the Cairo Museum.

A luxury cruise on the River Nile takes you to the heart of the Land of the Pharaohs. Explore Luxor’s Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens, and visit the mighty Temple of Amun in Karnak. Along the way, catch a glimpse at daily life on the banks of the world’s longest river.

If you’re dreaming of white-sand beaches, pretty coral reefs and year-round sunshine, Egypt’s Red Sea offers decadent beach escapes. Snorkel amongst vibrant coral reefs and tropical fish, dive historic wrecks, laze on beaches, shop in designer boutiques, or explore the vast landscape and fascinating nature of the Sinai Desert.

The Red Sea is also home to numerous luxurious resorts, such as the opulent Oberoi and the elegant Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh on the Sinai Peninsula.
