Egypt is a wonderful destination for families. It's friendly and hospitable and has attractions that appeal to all ages.

Enjoy a camel ride by the Pyramids, and, in the evening, watch the sound and light show at the Pyramids. Depending on your family's interests, we can arrange a variety of family-friendly activities around Cairo, such as a cooking class, desert ATV excursion and hands-on crafts lessons to learn to make papyrus or read a few ancient hieroglyphics. If desired, we can also arrange visits to Cairo's top boutiques and reservations at the best restaurants in town.

Next, enjoy a three-night luxury Nile River cruise. Tour extraordinary archaeological sites such as the stunning Temple of Philae, the High Dam and the Unfinished Obelisk in Aswan, the Temple of Horus (Edfu) and the Temple of Kom Ombo. Around Luxor, visit Luxor Temple and the Karnak complex, Medinet Habu, the Colossi of Memnon, and the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, including the tombs of King Tut and Ramses VI.
