Come Discover the Wondrous Magic of Egypt
Many travelers that arrive in Egypt soon become overwhelmed by the vast number of attractions, and unfortunately, many return home without having seen a lot of the best attractions.
There is so much more to Egypt than only the ancient pyramids, but trying to work out which are the best sights to see can often prove to be a daunting task, particularly if you’re not familiar with the country or its historical past. This is why we have created a wide range of packaged Egypt tours from Australia based on the feedback we’ve been getting from our customers for more than five decades.
When you book your Egypt and Middle East tours through us, your adventure begins from the minute you are greeted by our company representative at Cairo International Airport. Your tour guide will then escort you to your hotel where you’ll be given a free “Welcome to Egypt” drink of your choice before checking in.
Most Egypt tours from Australia include at least two nights in Cairo, during which time you’ll get to see all the most famous sights, including:
- Great Pyramids of Giza
- Djoser’s Step Pyramid
- Egyptian Museum
- Several other historical landmarks depending on length of stay in Cairo
What Else to See when Traveling to Egypt from Australia
Most Egypt tours from Australia also include spending some time in Egypt’s other premier destinations such as Luxor and Aswan since both of these ancient cities have just as much to offer visitors as Cairo does. Luxor is often described as a city of ancient temples, and sights such as the Valley of the Kings; Karnak Temple and the Queen Hatshepsut Temple never fail to impress even the most seasoned travelers.
In Aswan the most popular sights tend to be places like the Unfinished Obelisk; Philae Temple; Abu Simbel Temples; the Aswan High Dam and the Nubian village on Elephantine Island.
These are only a few of Egypt’s top attractions, and we’ve tried to include most, if not all of them in our Egypt tours from Australia. Again, if you don’t find a package tour that includes all the places you are longing to see, you can just let us know and we’ll more than happy to customize a tour which is tailored to your individual requirements.
Passport and Visa Requirements for Australian Citizens Visiting Egypt
Australian citizens can get a visa from any Egyptian consulate or on arrival at any major airport or port of entry.
As of February 2014, visas for Australian nationals cost $35 (Aus) for a single entry and $42 (Aus) 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. If your chosen tour 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.
When is the Best Time Travel to Egypt from Australia?
Because we offer so many different Egypt tours from Australia, 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 onboard one of our luxury cruise liners or in resorts, then visiting during the summer should be fine. However, if are booking a package tour that includes a lot of sightseeing, then we recommend visiting during 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:
- 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
