Travel to Egypt

Despite the scorching heat and occasional political turbulence, this place urges every tourist to know how to go to Egypt, as it one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The Land of the Pharaohs has been frequently visited by travellers, adventurers and history enthusiasts from every corner of the world. Egypt has multiple international airports including one at the capital city of Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, Sharm el-Sheikh, Hurghada and Aswan – all have their own. However, flights to Egypt from India mostly land at the Cairo International Airport. From there, one can roam in and around the country via bus or train.

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.

    • Trip to Egypt

      Except for the resort in Egypt, where check in process was super slow, with no help from the hotel staff, the entire tour was awesome. It was well planned and well arranged. Travel triangle did a good job.

    • Trip to Egypt

      Egypt. Tour agents and services were excellent and very cooperative . Cruise was excellent but service provision inside the Train was of BAD quality. Hotel room provision at Pyramis park was satisfactory and need improvement in quality of cleanliness.. Room lights and telephones were defective and not properly maintained . Dubai hotel arrangement and tour was excelantent however services of tour guide was unsatisfactory and need improvement. All flight booking except Indigo flight for Dubai mum was not good . The hot and humid weather condition restricted enjoying the tour at Egypt.

    • Trip to Turkey

      We had planned a 12 day trip to Turkey and Egypt through Offbeat Trippers / White Rabbit Holidays. Abhishek was extremely prompt and with his help, we were able to customise our itinerary over just one weekend. After that all bookings, travel details, emergency contacts etc. were shared well in time, and without any confusion. He was also available through the trip and was sharing updates as and when needed. On ground, all the airport transfers, day tours were extremely punctual, and there wasn't a single place where we had to wait. The hotels were good too. It was a memorable trip, with absolutely no glitch! Suggestion: A better agent for managing Visas. The contact given to us was not very responsive, so we found another agent.

    • Trip to Greece

      We just returned from our trip and had an amazing time, would like to thank you Shubham for the same. The hotels you booked were superb. They all were in the best possible location both in terms of ease of transport and the view. Also, your activeness to get us the boarding pass on return flight is much appreciated. Would also like to say that we took a semi private sail boat ride in Santorini and would highly recommend it to your customers.the company name is angel sailing and it was the best time we had. Just a small suggestion though, if possible avoid booking flights on Egypt Air . We had a not so pleasant experience in all our 4 connecting flights through them . But again ,thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
