There is no compulsory single supplement on our Egypt group tours and we offer a selection of tours where solo travellers can have a single room at no extra cost on selected departures.

Our six-day Cairo to Luxor Explorer will lead you to classic Egyptian sites including the Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza in Cairo and the tomb-strewn Valley of the Kings in Luxor.

King Ramses is a 13-night tour that takes you to the main sights of the country, including Aswan and a felucca sailing trip, before you enjoy three nights of rest and relaxation on the beach in Hurghada.

We include a magical two-night Nile cruise on board a traditional Felucca sailboat on our 10-day King Tutankhamun tour – or you can upgrade to a luxurious five-star cruise boat if you prefer.

If you fancy heading to Egypt for Christmas or some early December winter sun, we have a range of tours during this period including our Festive King Tut which is popular amongst solo travellers. For those looking to experience a special event in Egypt we have a variety of tours which combine the Sun Festival at Abu Simbel with visiting the country’s ancient wonders, such as our King Ramses Sun Festival.

On all our trips, you’ll be in the company of like-minded travellers and accompanied by your degree qualified Egyptologist guide. While around a third of our group members are aged 50 or over there are no age limits, guaranteeing a diverse mix of people from all over the world – one of the great experiences of travelling on a group tour. The maximum group size is 24 with an average of 18.

We also offer a number of family holidays which work well for single parents in the school holidays and half term breaks.
