Egypt solo tours

Get lost in Egypt (in all the right ways)

The excitement of cruising down the Nile at sunset or seeing the Pyramids of Giza for the first time is far too big to keep to yourself. If you've always dreamed about travelling to this bucket-list destination but you're not keen on going solo, then our small group tours are for you. As well as a local leader to handle the logistics, take you beyond the iconic sites and help you unlock the mysteries of this fascinating country, you'll have a bunch of ready-made (and adventure-keen!) friends to share all the memories with. Are you in?

Our Egypt solo trips

Why choose us

Intrepid travellers and leader jump for joy in front of the Pyramids at Giza
Ready made friends

Call us biased, but we think one of the best parts of travelling is making new memories with people just as hungry for adventure as you are. That's the beauty of a small group trip. There'll be plenty of time to do your own thing if you want to, but you'll always have someone to snap a photo of you with the Pyramids, grab a coffee or chat with on an overnight sleeper train from Cairo to Aswan.

A local leader

Egypt's history is so rich that it can be hard to know where to start. With a local leader by your side, you'll have an on-tour history expert ready to answer your burning questions and help you uncover the mysteries of the Pyramids, Sphinx and the Valley of the Kings. They'll also introduce you to locals, show you hidden hangouts and give you top-notch recommendations for your free time.

Safety

Egypt is generally a safe place to travel to, as long as you keep your wits about you and adhere to the status quo. Crime rates are low, but be aware of scam artists and pickpockets in busy souqs and tourist hotspots. Your local leader knows the areas and tourist traps to avoid, will get you from A to B smoothly, and will let you know the do's and don'ts of local customs.

Logistics and convenience

Anxious about sleeper trains? Or not sure how to organise a felucca cruise? No worries. When you travel with us, we'll take care of all the planning and logistics so you don't have to (there's enough admin to do in everyday life, right?). All you need to do is rock up with your camera and a sense of adventure.

A wonderful 7 days Egypt tour experience. We absolutely loved doing this tour and would recommend it to ANYONE who wants to do an experience in Egypt.I was always kept up to date. My trip included Cairo, Aswan and Luxor. Our tour guide Mr. Mohamed (Hady), we called him B.Obama as he looks like him, was brilliant - super friendly, helpful, considerate and extremely knowledgeable - educating us. With Hady, we witnessed the amazing beauty of Egypt and know all about its ancient history. He gave us lots of historical and cultural information and was more than happy to answer questions. Thank you again Hady - we wouldn't have wanted anybody else to show us around!
