Most people who think of Egypt think of antiquities, but Egypt offers much more. Certainly it is a prime location to see the great heritage from the ancient world, including Pyramids and wonderful temples, but it is also part of the Holy Land, and tours to Christian and other religious monuments are popular. Yet Egypt also offers nature and desert treks, great scuba diving and even golf, fishing and birding expeditions. Relax on the beaches of the wondrous Red Sea or Sinai coasts, take in the high culture of Cairo, or cruise down the Egyptian Nile on a luxurious river boat.
From the ancient city of Alexandria to the Luxor and Abu Simbel temples on The Nile, Egypt has an influx of history to uncover. With a mix of culture, old-world experiences and some of the most exquisite artifacts from the Pharaonic and Graeco-Roman periods, including the celebrated mummies of ancient Egypt's king and Tutankhamen treasures, Egypt offers a mix of exploring the ancient world and experiencing how modern-day Egyptians mix old and new.
