Why you'll love this trip
  • Explore ancient icons like the Pyramids, Sphinx and Valley of the Kings with you family, getting the behind the scenes info from expert local guides.
  • 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.

This was our best trip ever! Our guide Rania was amazing and the other family on our tour were so lovely. It was a nice mix of history and hanging by the pool. The best!

We had a really great experience on the intrepid family tour of Egypt. The trip was really well organised, and our guide was great. We were 4 families in total, and we all got on (especially the kids) which made it such a fun experience. Strongly recommended!

This was an excellent adventure for the whole family. The activities were well planned and the days provided great activities for the children and adults, with just enough sightseeing, exploring and down-time for the whole group. The kids loved exploring the sites, trying new food and learning about the history and culture as well as playing in the pool. It really helped that the group got on so well which meant the kids were happy playing together and everyone could relax. We are looking forward to booking our next intrepid adventure!

One of our best holidays ever, if not the best. It was a great mix between exploring ancient Egypt and chilling by the pool. The tombs at Valley of the Kings and the Pyramids were my highlights.
