No matter what you choose, there is no limit to the things you can see and do during holidays in Egypt. Let’s look at one Egypt tour package that offers eight days and incorporates a train journey into the fun.
8 Days in Egypt – April 2022
If you want a classic Egypt Easter Holiday experience in the country, and hope to savor many of the popular things to do in Egypt, you can enjoy an 8 Day Egypt Easter package such as this. During this trip, you begin by spending time in Cairo. Here you see:

From there, you head by train to Aswan, far south in Egypt. This is home to the famous dam and many popular attractions, such as:

From there you can then sail downriver towards such sites as Esna, Kom Ombo and Edfu. And after that, you experience what is easily one of the most popular things to do in Egypt – pay a visit to Luxor and the famous Luxor West Bank. This is home to Valley of the Kings, and this means you can experience tours of the bombs and even head to the famous Deir El Bahari, the mortuary temple of Egypt’s famed Queen Hatshepsut. Another of the top things to do in Egypt while in this area is t head to the eastern bank of the Nile to pay a visit to Karnak. This is one of the most amazing and famous destinations in all of Egypt and worth a day all on its own!
Luxury is One of the Best Things to do in Egypt
As you might realize, Egyptian holidays can also be the height of luxury, and if you are booking your Easter holidays in Egypt, you may want to consider a rare opportunity for a supremely luxurious cruise. You have several, including the astonishing 8 day journey aboard the Oberoi Philae. This luxurious cruise includes some of the best things to do in Egypt throughout the itinerary:
- A full day of Cairo touring

There is also the Steigenberger Minerva Nile Cruise which is a premiere vessel and for the 2022 Easter season it begins its tours in the gorgeous Luxor area.

- Luxor West Bank tour into the Valley of the Kings
- Sailing to Edfu for tours of the Temple of Horus

Naturally, if there are things to do in Egypt not included in one of the pre-arranged holiday packages, you can combine a few journeys or even design your own. For example, you may arrive early and spend some time visiting Alexandria before arriving in Cairo or you might opt to book a visit to Abu Simbel or even the Valley of the Kings before the organized tour begins.
Is Easter a National Holiday in Egypt?
While many Christians celebrate Easter in April, most of the Christians in Egypt are Coptic Christians who celebate this holiday on a different date. As such, Easter in April is not a national holiday, but Coptic Easter Sunday is. The actual date varies from one year to the next. This is because it falls on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox. In 2022, it will fall on the 2nd of May which is an official holiday on the Egyptian calender.
