There is the astonishment caused by stunning, colossal monuments of Ancient Egypt. There are the invigorating heat, sight and light of the desert. Then, the rejuvenating cool, turquoise waters are there. The sensational cruise through Nile, the longest river in the world, which is romantic and dazzling to the senses is inviting. An opulent and vibrant resort in the Red Sea Riviera welcomes you. Perhaps, there is no other place which offers as much magic, mystery and pleasures. Travelling to Egypt is like discovering a land of wonder. You can also scuba dive in Red Sea, have enjoyment in vibrant night spots, savor grand operas and unwind in five star comforts.

Egypt trip takes you to a country which is home to an ancient civilization. The remains of that era stand as temples, hieroglyphs, mummies and above all, pyramids. There are also monuments like ancient churches, monasteries and mosques which punctuate Egyptian landscape which are testimony to lesser known medieval heritage of Egypt. Coptic Christianity and Islam are the main creators of this heritage.

Egypt is situated mainly in North Africa with Sinai Peninsula forming a land bridge in Southwest Asia.

Egypt Tourism will edify you about one of the first major civilizations to codify design elements in art and architecture. The wall paintings done in the service of the Pharaohs, the emperors of ancient Egypt, followed a rigid code of visual rules and meanings. Egyptian music is a rich affair with a mixture of indigenous, Mediterranean, African and Western elements.

Egypt Tours include visits to number of archaeological sites in Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor and Aswan.

In Cairo one can have the glimpse of Pyramids of Giza, Sphinx, Egyptian museum, the pyramids and temples of Saqqara and Dahshur, Citadel of Salah El Din and Mosque of Mohamed Ali. Alexandria homes Roman and Greek monuments, Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Qa'edbay's Castle and Qasr El Montaza. Luxor has temples of Luxor, Valley of Kings and temples of Abu Simbel. Aswan also has numerous temples and monuments.

Egyptian civilization prospered on the fertile banks of Nile. The rest of the country is mostly arid desert. The banks of Nile have most of the ancient monuments and relics including temples, hieroglyphs and pyramids. Cruising through Nile is one of the economic and convenient of touring Egypt. It is convenient in the sense that you can avoid the formalities like multiple booking of tickets and constant packing and unpacking. The boats in Nile cruise come in various comfort levels according to your purse. Apart from visiting the antiquities on Nile banks, you could also glimpse how rural Egypt lives. They do so much the same way they did thousand years ago, in mudbrick homes, tending their field with wooden plows and moving produce via donkeys.

In Egypt, there are opportunities for some adventure as well. Red Sea is one of the better diving locations in the world. Diving from the coasts of Egypt constantly unravels underwater treasures and an abundance of undersea life. You can also engage in Kite surfing in Safaga. As another adventure you can ride camels out into desert by the pyramids and Sphinx. It is best to do it in the night when you can witness all the stars shining in the sky enhancing the magical feel. A guide will accompany you on a horse or camel. Desert ride can be conducted on horses also.
