Egypt Family Holiday

Best time to go: October Half Term, Christmas, February Half Term & Easter Holidays
Best for: Family Holidays, Culture & Beach

Bring the stories of ancient Egypt to life on this wonderful Egypt family holiday. Ride camels, see Mummies in the Egyptian Museum, explore the tombs of the Pharaohs, take a felucca ride on the Nile and finish on the beach for plenty of pool time on the Red Sea.

Egypt has a rich history which has left a wealth of evidence throughout the country. This fascinating land is the perfect destination for families with keen little explorers amongst them.

Cairo, where your journey begins, truly is unquestionably a city of many faces. It has busy spice bazaars and mosques that fill the mediaeval city. See glass and steel towers that dot the Nile, elegant colonial architecture and, of course, the ancient Pyramids at Giza. In Cairo, we design a day particularly around you and the family. What’s more, we provide an expert private guide and tailor the day so that it is ideal for all the family.

Children love to ride camels around the Pyramids. Afterwards, visit the Papyrus Institute where they can write their name out in Hieroglyphs. Continue to the Egyptian Museum where we focus on the Mummies Room. It’s also really worth showing the film a couple of days before arriving in Egypt. Afterwards, wander through the bazaars and feel the buzz of downtown Cairo. You can also introduce the children to haggling!

Fly to Luxor, or Thebes as it was known in ancient times. These breathtaking monuments are staggering to anyone of any age. Children adore the narrow winding entrances to the tombs and the vivid colour of the decorations in the Valley of the Kings. Finally, head back to Luxor and take a felucca out on the Nile and watch the amazing sunset on the Nile.

The last leg of your Egypt family holiday takes you to Hurghada on the Red Sea coast. Here you can leave land for the sea and discover the underwater world with some of the best snorkelling and diving in the northern hemisphere. The Kempinski Soma Bay is also ideal as it has interconnecting rooms.
