Egypt Tours from UK = Memories of a Lifetime
Whether you choose one of the many Egypt tour packages we offer, or whether you decide to take advantage of our incredibly popular customized Egypt tours from UK, you can rest assured that it will be a holiday you’ll never forget. When you only have a limited amount of time to explore a country, you want to make the most of that time by visiting all the best attractions. This can be quite a challenge when you visit Egypt simply because the country is home to such a vast number of Egypt tourist attractions.
Our tours have been meticulously planned so that our customers get to experience as much of this ancient land as they can during their stay. We also believe that variety is the spice of life, and for this reason, package deals like our Nile cruise and stay holidays include so much more than just a cruise along the Nile River. Our Egypt desert adventure packages are no different either. Regardless of what package tour you choose, you will still get to see all the most famous attractions, and you’ll do it in style.
Our SCUBA diving holidays are also immensely popular, and it’s hardly surprising considering that they all include a Nile River cruise and visits to all the most infamous attractions.
All our Egypt tours from UK start in Cairo, and most include at least a two or three day stay in the city, during which time you’ll get taken to see attractions such as the Great Pyramids of Giza; the Sphinx and so much more. If you book one of the cruise packages, then you’ll fly to Luxor or travel there on an overnight sleeper train after your stay in Cairo, since this is where most cruises start.
Passport and Visa Requirements for UK Citizens Visiting Egypt
UK citizens can obtain a visa for entering into Egypt from any Egyptian consulate, or they can get one on arrival at any major airport or port of arrival.
Tourist visas are valid for a period of 3 months as from date of issue. They allow you to remain in the country for up to one month as from your date of arrival. If your chosen Egypt tour from UK includes a visit to neighboring countries you will require a multiple entry tourist visa. This will allow you to leave and re-enter the country as many times as you want prior to your tourist visa expiring.
As of February 2014, visas for British nationals cost £16.50 for a single entry and £20.50 for a multiple entry. As is the case with many countries, you may be refused a visa if your passport is valid for less than six months.
When is the Best Time for Package Tours to Egypt from UK?
Because we offer so many different Egypt tour packages, it’s possible for you to visit Egypt any time of the year. However, the summer months are typically very hot, and many visitors, although not all, find the extreme heat uncomfortable.
If most of your holiday is going to be spent in Cairo or at the Red Sea Coast, then the weather shouldn’t be much of a problem regardless of when you visit. However, since most of our Egypt tours from UK include a ton of sightseeing, we recommend booking your holiday in the cooler months, from October to April.
Staying Safe While Traveling in Egypt
Egypt is not only a spectacular destination, but also a very safe destination. Nonetheless, there is always a certain amount of risk, regardless of where about in the world you go. A few general safety precautions can spell the difference between a great holiday and a disastrous one. We personally recommend the following to make sure you stay safe while touring Egypt:
- Keep valuables in the safes which are generally available in all major hotels
- Avoid large gatherings and avoid walking around in quite unfamiliar places after dark
- Always follow any and all safety advice offered by tour guides and/or our company representatives
- Avoid confrontation
- Avoid getting into discussions about politics and/or religion
- Follow the instructions given by your tour guide
