The Very Best Wheelchair Accessible Excursions

When you book wheelchair accessible vacations to Egypt through us you can look forward to enjoying absolutely fantastic excursions to some of Egypt’s most cherished archaeological sites. As we have already mentioned, all archaeological sites featured in our wheelchair tours have been carefully vetted to ensure that they are accessible for people in wheelchairs.

We do everything we possibly can to make it possible for disabled travelers to visit all the historical sites they want to visit. We also make it very clear which activities and sites are not wheelchair friendly so that you are not faced with unpleasant surprises when you arrive in the country.

Wheelchair Friendly Attractions

The Pyramids in Egypt by wheelchair

The famous Giza Pyramids are considered wheelchair friendly, although actually entering the pyramids is not really possible for people in wheelchairs. Don’t let this put you off from visiting though, because there really isn’t much to see inside any of the three pyramids other than empty passageways, empty chambers, plenty of stairs.

Egyptian museums are another example. Some Egyptian museums are wheelchair friendly while others are not. If you are a disabled traveler and you wish to visit one or more of Egypt’s museums, we would recommend that you visit the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in downtown Cairo or the new Grand Egyptian Museum at Giza.

At the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo only the ground floor level is wheelchair accessible. At the new Grand Egyptian Museum at Giza, all areas in the museum are wheelchair accessible.

While not all Egyptian antiquities are accessible to wheelchair users, there are many that are. Ancient monuments such as the magnificent rock-cut Abu Simbel Temples, Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple and Hatshepsut Temple are just a few examples of ancient monuments in Egypt that are wheelchair accessible.

Rest assured, even people with mobility issues can have a fantastically enjoyable experience in Egypt with professionally designed wheelchair accessible vacation packages.

Wheelchair Friendly Nile River Cruises

Nile cruise by wheelchair

It is often said that there is no better way to experience ancient Egyptian history than by way of a Nile River cruise between Luxor and Aswan in Upper Egypt. The good news is that disabled travelers can also enjoy the magic of a Nile River cruise. However, it is important to look for wheelchair accessible vacation packages that include a cruise on a wheelchair friendly Nile cruise ship.

For the most amazing experience ever, be sure to look for Egypt Nile Cruise tours that feature wheelchair friendly “five star” Nile cruise ships. This will allow you to visit some of Egypt’s finest ancient monuments, including places like Luxor Temple, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, and some of Egypt’s other majestic temples.

Egypt Travel Tips for Disabled Travelers

Anyone who is planning to visit Egypt can benefit from a few useful travel tips, including people who are reliant on wheelchairs. Below, are a few basic tips that can help to ensure you get to enjoy a truly perfect trip in the Land of the Pharaohs:

1. Wheelchair Accessibility

Not all hotels in Egypt are wheelchair friendly, and this applies even to many upmarket five star hotels. If you are reliant on the use of a wheelchair it is crucial that you determine whether or not a hotel is wheelchair accessible before you make any reservations. The same applies to Nile River cruise ships. You will want to find a cruise ship that provides easy wheelchair access. This is one of the reasons why we recommend booking wheelchair accessible vacation packages through a reputable travel agency.

2. Wheelchair Friendly Transportation

As a disabled traveler, one needs to be aware of the fact that nearly all forms of public transport in Egypt, including taxies, are not wheelchair friendly. This can make getting around very challenging for people in wheelchairs. The best way to overcome this problem is to book wheelchair accessible vacation packages that include wheelchair accessible transportation.

3. Be Prepared for the Weather

During certain months of the year the heat in Egypt can be absolutely scorching which can make sightseeing excursions quite uncomfortable, and even more so for people who are confined to a wheelchair. Our advice would be to avoid visiting Egypt during the hottest months of the year which are June, July and August. Ideally, wheelchair users should try to visit during the cooler months, from October to the end of April.

4. Not All Attractions are Wheelchair Friendly

Travelers with disabilities can visit many of Egypt’s most iconic landmarks but there are also several which are not wheelchair friendly. To this end, it is important that you do some research before traveling so that you don’t arrive in the country only to discover that you won’t be able to visit some of the attractions you were really hoping to see. This is another reason why you should consider booking wheelchair accessible vacation packages through a reputable Egypt tour operator.
