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.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Egypt is home to some of the world's most amazing ancient icons. Explore the Pyramids of Giza, Sphinx and Valley of the Kings with expert local guides who know all the history.
  • Experience a slice of contemporary Egyptian life and interact with locals along the way. See the Nubian way of life when you enjoy dinner at a local house in Aswan.
  • Spend time weaving through streets, getting lost in a colourful bazaar and exploring the impressive Karnak temple in Luxor.
  • 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.

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.
  • 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.

Our first family Intrepid trip, and we chose Egypt! A fantastic, low-stress way to introduce our kids to international travel. Our local guide was amazing and we loved our experience with only one other family in our group!
