Cairo – The capital of Egypt where you will discover the Marvel at the wonders of the ancient pharaohs. A truly unforgettable experience to see the Pyramid complex, golden treasures of Tutankhamun on display in the museum, the hustle and bustle of the streets and the eerie magic of the River Nile. Cairo is a vibrant, exhilarating, exotic, fascinating and welcoming city and home to the best Pharaonic, Coptic and Islamic sights in Egypt.
Luxor – Once an Ancient Egyptian capital, is known today as the world’s “greatest open-air museum.” From the tomb of Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings and the magnificent sunset views at the majestic temple complexes of Karnak and Luxor to the exciting and fun Nile cruises, Luxor is the perfect choice for culture vultures. It is divided by the Nile into two areas commonly called the East Bank and West Bank which were considered in Ancient Egyptian times as symbolizing respectively Life and Death.
Abu Simbel – The very small village of Abu-Simbel lies 280 km south of Aswan, and only 40 km north of the Sudanese border. Even though it is home to several hotels, the small town is usually overlooked by tourists as a holiday destination. Most of them prefer to visit the Nubian town on a daytrip from Cairo or Aswan or as an extension to a Nile cruise or a Lake Nasser Cruise. Perched atop a hill overlooking the Nile, the majestic Abu-Simbel Temples are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Marina North Coast – The Saint Tropez of Egypt! Once only considered a favored destination of Cairene vacationers, the North Coast of Egypt has succeeded over the past few years in earning the reputation of a world-class sea resort, by catering to more exclusive lifestyles through beautiful and upscale tourist villages. The North Coast has one of the most beautiful beaches of the world with its light turquoise ocean color. The weather in the North Coast is a lot milder than it is in the top Red Sea coast destinations during summer season, which makes it a perfect summer spot.
Marsa Allam – Known for its virgin underwater life with healthy coral reefs and a variety of underwater wildlife such as dugongs and dolphins, the region has become a vital red sea destination for all diving enthusiasts with a little bit of both the desert and sea worlds. The town offers all kinds of accommodations, ranging from upscale comfort establishments with complete top-notch amenities to Bedouin-inspired eco-lodges.
Sharm El Sheikh – Located at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, the area boasts the widest array of fun, exciting and even crazy water and extreme sports: besides diving, snorkeling, sailing, wind and kite-surfing, you can even try sky diving or parachuting from a helicopter. With its stunning coral reefs and colorful fish, Sharm el Sheikh is a paradise for those who like diving and snorkeling. With the famous Nature Park Ras Mohamed in short distance and the Tiran Island just ahead, Sharm El Sheikh was recently awarded as the world’s best diving destination.
Alexandria – The second largest city in Egypt, known as “The Pearl of the Mediterranean”, was founded in year 331 BC by Alexander the Great. The city remained the capital of Ptolemaic Egypt and Roman and Byzantine Egypt for almost 1,000 years. The city is home to the Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; the Great Library, the largest in the ancient world; and the Necropolis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages. Alexandria was the intellectual and cultural center of the ancient Mediterranean world for much of the Hellenistic age and late antiquity.
Aswan – This charming town is Egypt’s most southern and oldest town since Pharaonic times and has been the trading center and gateway to Africa. The High Dam is Egypt’s modern wonder. Also, Aswan is home to many granite quarries from which most of the Obelisks in Luxor were sourced. The river is wide, slow and beautiful, with the colorful Nubian villages where one can explore the traditional lifestyle. Philae Temple is the most visited temple in Aswan and the last in the classical Egyptian architectural style. In the south you will find the unfinished Obelisk, the largest obelisk carved directly out of bedrock.
Hurghada – Once a tiny fisher village, Hurghada now spans over 40 km of pristine coastline. Hurghada City has year-round sunshine, incredibly beautiful coral reefs and dozens of exciting attractions in a laid back, relaxed atmosphere. The clarity of the water and the endless opportunities for divers make Hurghada the center for leisure tourism in Egypt and a successful destination for divers and swimmers. For those who like things a little quieter, El Gouna, 25 km to the north, is ideal.
Makadi Bay – A desert and a mountain range. A new seaside resort developed around a picturesque bay on the Red Sea Riviera. A quieter option to neighboring Hurghada, it offers beautiful, white sand beaches, crystal blue water and a buzzing waterfront filled with quality hotel resorts gazing out across the bay. Moreover, The Bay is popular for its idyllic palm-fringed beaches, spectacular diving and 18-hole golf course.
Safaga – Once a small port town, Safaga has grown into a major touristic hot-spot on the Red Sea! The area enjoys an all-year-round pleasant climate and lies only about 65 km south of Hurghada. Due to the therapeutic and curative powers of its mineral and saline rich springs it is one of the most popular wellness destinations in the region. The large beautiful bay, ideal wind conditions and calm water make it a favorite destination for wind- and kite surfers. Divers enjoy the coral garden at Sha’ab Saiman and the great drop-offs at Panorama Reef, home to big game fish and stingrays.
