  • This tour offers so many chances to interact with the locals and experience a slice of contemporary Egyptian life, including dinner with a Nubian family in an Aswan village.
  • See the light of the sunrise on the dunes of the Sahara during a breakfast cruise down the Nile on a traditional felucca.
  • Check out epic monuments like the Temple of Isis during the day, then relax by the pool in the afternoon – this trip has scheduled sightseeing and time to relax.
  • Egypt can be overwhelming, especially if you’re travelling with kids, but the guidance of your local leader and a well-planned, balanced itinerary make for an anxiety-free adventure.

Is this trip right for you?
  • 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.

My family and I took an eight day Trippet tour of Egypt. My family and I took a eight day Trippet tour of Egypt. This trip was only eight days long, we felt that we Received a wonderful experience of the major attractions. As a family we were especially impressed with intrepid Egypt for providing a female guide and I’m sure this will be a selling point for many other travellers to this amazing country.

First family trip with Intrepid, and we had a fantastic time largely due to the brilliant local tour leader who made it fun and engaging through out it all. The trip itinerary was well balanced allowing enough free time. The accommodation was perfect. Thank you for a very memorable holiday.

The Family Trip to Egypt was excellent! It was our first multi-day organized tour and we are so grateful for the care and consideration that went into the planning and execution of the entire itinerary. Our guide (Marwa!) was wonderful and we learned so much.
