About Egypt Tourism

Egypt – the name itself invokes a sense of mysterious antiquity. Over the years, the country has had many regimes at the helm, most prominently the Ottoman and the British Empires. Blessed with magnificent monuments, lush delta, beguiling desert and mighty Nile, this place offers an unmatchable experience as one decides to book a package for Egypt tourism.

Pyramids, although they exist in many other civilizations around the world, are somehow inseparably associated with Egypt. The country has many of these grand tombs of the Pharaohs scattered around the desert area and seeing all of them is quite impossible. But Egypt travel is incomplete without visiting at least some of them. The Pyramid of Giza, the Great Sphinx and the Pyramid of Khufu are the most famous ones. But there are some lesser-known ones as well, which are worth the time and money for the Egypt pyramids tour – Pyramid of Khafre, the Red Pyramid, Step Pyramid of Djoser and the Pyramid of Menkaure.

History of Egypt:

Egypt has always been known as a destination for tourists throughout the history. And, the discovery of Pharaohs have been adding a special charm to the place. As far as the ancient Egypt and its civilization is concerned, the country’s history actually predates every other human existence in the world, barring the Sumerian civilization. Together with Mesopotamia, Egypt forms the world’s oldest Cradle of Civilization in the valleys of Nile, Tigris and Euphrates. Unlike many other countries with such dynamic pasts, Egypt has not let go of its roots. The legacy of the great Egyptian Empire is an integral part of the country’s identity and Egypt tourism now.

Major Festivals in Egypt:

Blessed with a rich cultural history and home to two of the ancient wonders of the world, this place offers a grand Egyptian experience. Predominantly influenced by Christmas and Islam religions, most of the religious festivals have their influence. However, there are also some modern festivals and events which can be enjoyed by the locals and visitors alike. On an excursion to Egypt, one can enjoy some of the major festivals, like: 3alganoob, Oshtoora, Cloud 9, Cairo Jazz Festival, Ramadan, Eid al-adha, the International Samma Festival and many more.

Attractions in Egypt:

While most of the attractions of Egypt tours are located well inside the country, the coastlines along the Mediterranean and the Red Sea are quite as impressive. Mahmya Island, Soma Bay, Sharm-El-Luli and El Gouna are some of the best ones on the Red Sea, while Fjord Bay Beach and Agiba Mediterranean Beach are two other gems with dazzling blue waters.

Here are some of the best cities to visit on your trip to Egypt:

1. Cairo:

When you visit Egypt, the first city that should be on your itinerary is Cairo. It is not only the capital of the country but also one of the most iconic cities of Africa and the Middle East together. The modern city was established in around 969 BCE by the Fatimid Dynasty. The remnants of the old city are still there in parts in Old Cairo, so are the ancient city of Memphis and the Giza Pyramid Complex.

2. Alexandria:

Alexandria, founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, is a beautiful port city along the Mediterranean in northern Egypt. Alexandria had a Hellenistic period lighthouse, known to be an important Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Dotted with Greco-Roman landmark, old-school cafes and a stretch of sandy beach along the sea, Alexandria is a must-visit on your Egypt tour.

3. Aswan:

Aswan is a lovely tourist city and port market, located very strategically on the Nile. Every river cruise on the Nile passes through Aswan and shows a glimpse of the legendary Aswan Dan and the Columned Temple of Isis. Aswan has always been the commercial gateway to Egypt from down south, and also home to many such ancient architectures and temples.

4. Giza:

Cairo and Giza are often visited together, but they are different cities. Giza is the third-largest in Egypt, located on the west bank of Nile. Giza is home to the renowned Giza Pyramid of King Khufu and the Great Sphinx. After Cairo, it is probably the most visited and photographed city of Egypt.

5. Luxor:

Luxor lies on the eastern side of Nile down south and is located on the site of ancient Thebes. During the height of Pharaoh Regime in the 16th-11th century BCE, Thebes was the capital of their empire. Thus, there were a great many temples, tombs and other buildings on this site, but only two have survived – the Luxor and Karnak Temple.

Travel to Egypt

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

Cairo and Luxor are the two main airports in Egypt, with Aswan, Alexandria and Sharm el-Sheikh as close runner-ups. Sharm el-Sheikh is mostly visited directly by those interested in a vacation in Red Sea. However, Cairo Airport boasts most of the airlines operating flights to and from India. All the major Indian cities with airports have frequent flights to Cairo. Flights from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkata to Egypt are very common. The fastest flight to Egypt is from Mumbai. This is the only nonstop flight to Cairo from Mumbai and it runs three days a week – Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The flight takes around 6 hours 40 minutes and is operated by Egyptair. The next best option to go to Egypt by air is the one-stop flight from Delhi by Kuwait Airways and Egypt Air via Kuwait City, which takes around 8 hours. From Chennai there are many one-stop flights as well.

By Train

There are no feasible ways to go from India to Egypt by train. But inside the country, Egyptian Railways are very easy to travel in from one city to another. Cairo to Alexandria is the most common line, but there are trains to Luxor, Suez, Port Said and Aswan as well. The scenery, dotted with palms and fields and sometimes the Nile, is beautiful, to say the least.

By Road

 

If you look at the Egypt map, you can see it is located right at the border of Asia, over-pouring a little bit onto the part called Middle-East. So it can be said that theoretically, Egypt can be driven to from India. But the distance of the Egypt route by road from India is nearly 4500 kilometres. The route goes from India through Pakistan, Iran, Iraq and parts of Jordan and Israel to reach Egypt. Given the geographical as well as a socio-political scenario, that is not the best option to go for. You will need way too many permission and documents to pass through that many borders, and the journey will not be quite as comfortable. However, if you are already travelling in Israel or Jordan, there are ways to go to Egypt by bus. Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Amman have bus services to Cairo.

      Very well arranged tour with a perfect itinerary. The guides were amazing & very knowledgeable. Although we missed the hot air balloon on day 2 bcoz of train delay, it was scheduled on a different day & that day happened to be Jan 1. It was indeed surreal to start 2019 by watching the first sunrise of the year from high up in the sky! Hot Air Balloon ride at Luxor & the Nile Cruise

      Devaansh was super attentive and helpful. Trip was great, but I had a separate agency coordinator for pickup and dropoff, a historian tour guide, and a new driver each day in Egypt. Tipping was out of hand. Wish that were more consolidated as in other countries. Otherwise great time!
