There are many different types of tours in Egypt, but most travelers will be interested in the pharaonic sites, a Nile River cruise, a Felucca sailboat tour, or a visit to the Giza Pyramids. There are plenty of different tours to choose from – read on for some tips. Listed below are some of the most popular ones. And don’t forget to plan time to visit the Egyptian Museum.

Felucca sailboat tour

Experience an authentic Egyptian sailing experience by taking a felucca sailboat tour on the Nile. Whether it is your first felucca tour or your tenth, you’ll be treated to delicious Egyptian cuisine and zero-carbon travel on the Nile. And because feluccas are sailboats, they’re perfect for families – they can accommodate two or more people. You can expect to feel as if you’re on the river itself and a felucca sailboat tour is perfect for everyone!

Luxor Nile River cruise

The deluxe luxury Nile river cruise ships moor in private Luxor harbor. The five-night cruise includes a visit to the Luxor temple, lunch in the main restaurant, and a tour of the Valley of the Kings and Queens. Passengers also have the opportunity to visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. The five-night cruise also stops in Edfu and Philae.

Aswan traditional tourist area

One of the top attractions in Aswan is the Philae Temple, which you may want to skip if you have an early start. While you’re in the area, you can also take a taxi or Careem (the Arab version of Uber) to the island. The temple is located on a small island in the Nile River and you’ll need to buy entrance tickets before you visit.

Giza Pyramids

If you want to experience the wonders of ancient Egyptian architecture, it’s time to visit the Giza Pyramids on a tour of Egypt. These two giant structures represent the height of human architectural achievement. General consensus is that the pyramids were built to serve as the tombs of ancient Egyptian emperors. Inside these monuments, you can find chambers such as the Granite Sarcophagus and King’s Chamber. However, much of the pyramid’s history and construction remains a mystery. It’s advisable to leave the puzzle solving to experts; you won’t know anything unless you go on a guided tour.

Bible tours in Egypt

The land of Jesus, the Holy Land, and breathtaking natural beauty are all included in Bible tours in Egypt. If you are considering such a trip, you should know that there are many Bible tours in Egypt with extensions to other parts of the Holy Land. Due to the turmoil in the area, religious tours usually don’t visit Israel directly. Most tour packages leave from Egypt and include Jordan, which has several Old Testament sites. Here, you can walk in the footsteps of the Bible characters and learn about the country’s rich history.
