With its world-class diving, fascinating history and spotless beaches, package holidays to Egypt simply can’t be beaten. It is one of the most diverse holiday destinations in the world. Whether your dream is to visit the Valley of the Kings in Luxor or dive among colourful reefs in the Red Sea, Egypt has thousands of years of ancient treasures; both natural and man-made.

Breath-taking Red Sea Riviera

Prime destinations for tourists on the Red Sea coast are resort cities like Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada. Amenities are in place to support visitors eager to take advantage of local dive sites, camel and Bedouin tours, day trips to Luxor and Cairo, quad and mountain biking, ocean cruises, water skiing, kayaking and much more. To book holidays in the Red Sea simply fill in your dates and browse affordable options with Holiday Hypermarket.

Nile Cruises via the Ancient City of Thebes

Luxor is of course another essential destination in Egypt as it is where the Valley of the Kings nestles on the banks of the Nile. Containing more than 60 tombs and chambers, the valley was the main burial location for royal figures and privileged nobles between the 16th and 11th centuries BC, and although they were plundered by thieves many years ago, evidence of their incredible opulence remains.

It’s also possible to book a cruise along the picturesque Nile River, exploring the famed temple in Kom Ombo, passing farmers tending their crops in the rich Nile soil and heading on to Aswan to view the Temple of Philae.

Not a Cruise Enthusiast? Visit Aswan

Aswan is yet another reason to visit Egypt. Situated away from the coral reefs and beaches of the Red Sea, it’s close to Sudan on the edge of the Nubian Desert and said to be the hottest city in the country – best to visit in winter! However, the stunning scenery across desert panoramas and the banks of Nile are breath-taking when viewed from the comfort of luxury resort-style swimming pools.

Aswan is also historically fascinating: the stone quarries of Swenet (Aswan of ancient times) supplied granitic rock called Syenite that furnished Egypt’s huge statues, obelisks, shrines and pyramids, and under every dynasty it acted as a garrison town, collecting tolls and customs for boats travelling along the Nile.

Unforgettable Package Holidays in Egypt

The pyramids are a big reason to visit Egypt, and it’s possible to book day and overnight tours from the coast to view World Heritage Sites like the Pyramids at Giza and the Great Sphinx. There’s more to see in Egypt, however; barter in the gold souks in Hurghada, stop by Saint Catherine’s Monastery (one of the oldest Christian monasteries in the world) and ride a camel to the Bahariya Oasis to get up close to Egypt’s renowned desert beauty.
