Taba tours allow you to experience the history, as well as the present state, of this fascinating border city. Some Egypt and Jordan tours that you see may include tours to Taba.
Taba is a small Egyptian town that is located near the northern tip of the Gulf of Aqaba. Taba is both an important city for border crossing as well as for vacationing.
Taba is a Quiet Destination
There’s really no comparing Taba to some of the other popular locations in Egypt like Cairo. Taba’s entertainment is modest at best, as the town mainly consists of a bus depo and a luxury hotel and casino.
Nevertheless, Taba is still a popular spot for day tours, and for travelers who are anxious to see all of Egypt, as well as resident Egyptians looking for local fun.
Taba is ideally located, between Israel and Egypt and so is often used as a weekend getaway type of destination. Of all the resorts around the Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera, it is the farther location heading north.
Best of all, Taba is a quiet destination that is a much more relaxing vacation than some other guided Egypt tours that offer much excitement but also many crowds.
Remember that even if you run out of things to do in Taba you can still work with land tours operators and purchase an excursion luxury tour to nearby locations like Mount Sinai and Petra.
The Hilton Taba Resort & Nelson Village
Although plans are on for the future to make Taba more tourist-friendly, there are still some attractions worth seeing on private tours to the area.
The best commercial location is undoubtedly the Hilton Taba Resort & Nelson Village. This casino hotel is actually located between four different countries including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel and Egypt.
The hotel offers 410 rooms as well as a private beach, a kids’ club, swimming pools, tennis courts and spa treatment.
The Nelson Village center is a special luxury extension made of local stone and natural woods, which perfectly blend with the surrounding landscape.
The hotel is conveniently located on the Egyptian-Israeli border and also a short drive to several important locations like Nuweiba port, Taba International Airport and Eilat Airport.
