Walk like an Egyptian on a family adventure
Explore the world of pyramids, mummies, tombs and bazaars on an eight-day exploration of Egypt for families. Dive into ancient history with expert local guides and see all the iconic sights, including the mighty Pyramids and the Sphinx, King Tut’s tomb, the Egyptian Museum and the Valley of the Kings. Cruise down the Nile on a traditional felucca and interact with a local family over a meal in a Nubian village. You and the kids will also have plenty of time to explore at your own pace, or just laze by the pool and soak up the Egyptian sun. Get your gang together and take a journey back in time.

Travel like the locals do on a comfortable overnight sleeper train – a fun experience where you’ll wake up to another exciting destination to discover!
Enjoy plenty of free time to do what your family loves doing on holiday – maybe that’s heading out for some more exciting tours, or just lazing by the pool and soaking up the sun.
There is a fair amount of walking involved in exploring the pyramids, and it can get very hot in the summer. Be sure your family has appropriate clothing, sun protection and plenty of water to drink.
Evenings can get quite cool, so it's best to bring warm clothes too. Wearing layers is the best way to deal with the disparity in day and night temperatures.
Taking an overnight train is a fun experience, but keep in mind that facilities will be basic. Though there are lockable cabins there is a shared bathroom at the end of the carriage.
